The truest-truth concerning the meaning and purpose for ‘being’ and ‘existence’ is that ‘man’ is made in the image of God and intended to be in vertical communication with the one who is there and who is not silent, the one who created him. We were made to be connected to our Creator, to ‘know’ Him. The connection is about purpose and intention in design. It is about source and supply. Man is made in the image of God. And ‘man’ is also meant to have a horizontal communication with his own kind. The deepest way to experience the truest-truth of knowing that which can be truly known about reality, about purpose and meaning to life, about love, begins in the vertical relationship with the God who is there and then extends out into the horizontal in order for us to give and receive love as it was intended and designed to be experienced.
