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.
Ok, so my question back to you is why is a purpose needed? Why does their need to be an explanation, even though it could be wrong?
I think people need to have an explanation to make them feel better, regardless if it's right or not.
