1) enjoying life is a goal, but not a purpose.
2) for clarity; Christians do not believe that their work on earth buys them a ticket to heaven. Some other religions do believe that personal acts = salvation; but Christians believe that only the sacrifice made by God (the Father and the Son) can wash away sin.
