God...the big question
My answer is yes, too My religion is super close to my heart (I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints). We believe in God and Jesus Christ, and we definitely believe in angels, too - that they walk among us and help us like Christ taught.
I believe the purpose of life is to become as much like Jesus Christ as we can so that we can return to live with God. We don't believe in earning exaltation, but we believe in "learning" the attributes we will need in order to receive a fulness of joy in God's presence.
And as far as destiny goes, some people disagree with me but I see higher purpose and symbols all throughout life in general and it seems to me that everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that's a hard concept to believe, but in the end, it tends to bring more comfort to me than any other feeling.
If anyone reading this wants to learn more, I highly recommend reading The Book of Mormon because it is filled with more truth than any other book I've read! (You can also chat with me if you want. I love to talk about religion <3)
