Why YOU Are Alive
Herbert W Armstrong

Herbert W. Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in the late 1930s, as well as Ambassador College in 1946, and was an early pioneer of radio and tele-evangelism, originally taking to the airwaves in the 1930s from Eugene, Oregon.

Why are you alive? For what purpose did God put you here on this earth? Do you know? This is the greatest, most important question your mind can contemplate just now - the most vital question of life, yet the one most people think about the least. If, as some believe, God's purpose in our being alive is to get us "saved" - and if, as so many believe, all there is to getting "saved" is accepting Christ as Savior, then why is it that God does not instantly take each one to his reward as soon as he accepts Christ - away from all the continuous trials, heartaches and sufferings of this life? The answer, briefly stated, is that God created the human family for a very great purpose a purpose I'm afraid most professing Christians, and even most ministers, have missed entirely.
