This question lies at the heart of so many questions. What happens to us after we die? Why did God put a forbidden tree in the garden of Eden? How can God send people to hell? They all boil down to, “Why did God make us?” Since "purpose" is such a broad topic, I am limiting my writing to the purpose of humanity at large and specifically how, in Christianity, our individual purpose is not something that is fulfilled after we die, but begins the moment we are saved.
