If the purpose of life many religions give you is to serve God or to be with God, what's the purpose of God's life?

If we exist to serve him, what are we helping him to do?

Update:

Many people seem to think life is meaningless if there are no gods. So where does God get his purpose? Or if he doesn't need one, why do we?

    What purpose does a good parent have? To raise his children to be good and responsible adults. That is the parent's glory. That is God's glory.

    Our service to God in this world is to preach the gospel to all creation. However, ultimately what God wants of mankind is for us to be members of His family, love His ways and live and abide in them, and live an abundant, adventurous life of joy, beauty and bliss ever increasing, and ever lasting.

    God made disease and that tortures humans. Should you be with a torturer? Should you help?

  • You are wrong, it is not the religions that serve and love God, even if religions believe that there is God, they are out of Christian doctrine. The truth is about the religion of true Christianity, it is the purpose of life to serve and love God in its laws and prescriptions!

    That's a little difficult to define because no matter which god you're talking about he always agrees with the person who speaks for him even when the people who speak for him don't agree with each other.

    God IS PURPOSE.

    Don't you find so often some of us have this need(not all), this hole that ONLY Jesus can fill?

    Temporary fillers like porn, pedophilia,  drugs wear down.

    Being created, we're not the Creator.

    Creator is complete,  we are incomplete. 

    God is love.  I think it's what love does.

    We're not love, at best, occassionally maybe we love but most need love.

    Don't expect any more than

    1 Bibel-god is outside time an space.

    None of the rules that apply to us apply to him.

    2. Bibel-god made the rules

    He doesn't have to live by them.

    Cos bibel-god is a psycho sumbitch and

    Exists only if all logic and reason is ignored.

    Special Pleading is his modus operandi.
