Was man created by God to die?

If so why did he create us at all?

Report as

God intention at the beginning was not for anyone to die.
Till, satan, deceived Adam and Eve.
Well, after the death if Jesus Christ, we are all automatically saved (that's if you believe him)
Death now, is just 'leaving the earth' to join God where he is.
It's not actually a bad thing..to d!e.
We humans on earth see it as such, but it's spiritually not as it seems.

No. Adam and Eve sinned and we die because of that. Then Jesus died on the cross to give us everlasting life.

we do not die ,our soul evolves, you are not the same form now as you were as a fetus, you evolved ..you were in an entirely different place and form as a fetus which you have no memory of ..you are not the same as you were at 4, that person is evolved..gone from sight and you may not even remember that time,yet you are still the same soul...you are still alive..the same will be true when you leave this earth.God has given us eternal live ,through Jesus Christ...we are here to demonstrate to Jesus who we are, ,and hopefully we get to know Jesus as well.

I think life may be short, to give us a time limit. This way we will think about whatever it is we came to do and get on with it. Otherwise we would just lounge around all day and not question why we are here.

No. God created Adam and Eve to live in perfection forever with Him in Eden. Adam and Eves sin brought death and destruction and decay amongst other consequences of sin into the wirld and separated them from God.

I thought it was interesting because I've always thought that it was interesting that none of us wants to die, even though from as far as we can remember it has been our reality as humans. The thought of dying is somehow not natural to us. The Bible explains why at Ecclesiastes 3:11: "Everything he (God) has made pretty in its time. Even time indefinite he has put in their heart, that mankind may never find out the work that the [true] God has made from the start to the finish." So God put the desire in our hearts to live forever, but if that's the case, will that desire ever be fulfilled? Yes! Psalm 37:29 says: "The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside FOREVER upon it." When will this become a reality? How can we gain everlasting life? Those questions are answered from the God's Word in this brief article in the October 2012 Watchtower: http://www.jw.org/en/publications/magazines/wp20121001/can-you-live-forever/

Please read it along with your personal copy of the Bible to see for yourself what God has in store for you. Hope this helps!

Wars are possible because religion convinces man that he will have another life. So giving up your life for your leader is not the end of you.If man believed this was his only life, it would be next to impossible to raise an army.who would be willing to risk his very existence, for some ideal. I wouldn't.

I wouldn't either. And you are correct about man being convinced by religion of an afterlife. The queston is does the Bible agree with this story? I remember reading that many ancient countries like, the Egyptians, Babylonians, Greeks and Romans who we pattern our goverment and and much of our religious belifs after, did the same thing. Here is another thought if man was created by God to die, why did He (God) warn people about things that could cause an early death. As it says in the Bible at Ezekiel 18:31. Just something to think about.

It wasn't because he needed us: "The God who made the world and everything in it ...is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything" (Acts 17:24-25). And he didn't make us because he was lonely. Long before we were here, God already had "company" with his Son and the Holy Spirit, referred to in Genesis 1:26, "Let us make man in our own image." And he didn't make us because he needed his ego fed. It's not like God made us to satisfy some craving to be worshiped. God is totally secure in who he is-without us.
Second, despite not needing us, God chose to create us anyway, out of his great love: "I have loved you with an everlasting love" (Jeremiah 31:3). Yes, God loved us before he even created us. It's impossible to get our heads around that idea, but it's true; that's what "everlasting" love means. God is love (1 John 4:8), and because of that love and his wonderful creativity, he made us so we can enjoy all that he is and all that he's done.
Third, God created us to fulfill his eternal plan. God, in his infinite wisdom, chose to make us a part of his eternal plan.

Because without "Sin", there will be nothing to forgive or save from, thus, there won't be a need for a God.

God was one step ahead of man's sin. He had a plan to restore man to Himself. The fact that so few choose this path is no fault of God, as if He made man sin. The alternative would be a race of robots. God wanted people to love and worship Him freely. Those who are programmed to act in a certain way cannot make a choice and so cannot know love.

No, God did not create Man to die.
What GOD said was, " it is not good for man to be alone",
GOD (who knows all things) already had REDEMTION in the plan of populating the EARTH, which was through ONE man (He who was, and is, and is to come)ADAM, JESUS GOD ALMIGHTY
The SPIRIT of GOD was breathed into the BLUEPRINT of MANKIND.
At DEVISION "(EVE)" the man was alive by the walk of the spirit of Holiness, that had GIVEN him "(the man)" everything that pertained to LIFE and GODLINESS.
When the man ADAM was put to sleep (which I believe symbolizes the the death of JESUS)(and the same as when the spirit leaves the body at death) and a rib was removed and when he arose from the deep sleep, the man was walking in the NATURE he had been given by the HOLY SPIRIT, breathed into his nostrils by GOD THE FATHER of all
So then the body needed life of its own.
If you want any more of my understanding of Jesus the SON of the MOST HIGH GOD.
