To live in many different ways

Life is a test. We are being tested by our actions and how we deal with challenges and. We have what is called free agency which is the ability to choose from right and wrong and we are being tested on how we use that free agency. Life is also a chance for us to gain a body and live on this Earth.
the mining of life is to live life and do what you want

This is a very straight forward question, and the answer is very straight forward too. However understanding it, taking it to heart, and then acting on it is the trick. If you bear with me, I will answer it, explain it an then tell you why most peopel will ignore it and go on their way.
So what is the answer?
First off, the bible very clearly tell us, at Ecclesiastes 12:13, "The conclusion of the matter, everything having been heard, is: Fear the true God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole obligation of man." All Bibles read relatively the same here. Now, before you jump to conclusions, scoff or move on, let me explain what this means then i will reason an illustrate this in a way we can all understand.
What this means?
Here they use the word fear, but this is not a dread type of fear but a loving fear, much like when a child fears displeasing a parent because they don't want to let the parent down or disappoint them. That is what the 'fear' of GOD mentioned here is referring to. We can prove this but that is a much longer conversion.
If we went to a mechanic and saw all of his tools out, there would most definitely be a few that we have never seen, wouldn't know what they were for or how to use it. How would you find out? Well, just ask the mechanic, after all he is the one has been trained on it and uses it. Now, if we choose to take that tool and use it as a hammer to hang a picture, can he be faulted if things don.t work out and we damage our wall? No!
What this means for us?
This is where people get really confused. How does this information help us? How will our lives be better? Will our lives be better? Imagine if a computer engineer designed and programed a computer to work a certain way, and then we decided to use it such a way that is contrary to the programing. While it will work, to a certain extent, it will also struggle to work as fast or effectively. Likewise, GOD has programmed us to work best in a certain way, sure we are all imperfect so we will never be a peak performance in this system, as it is now. However, if we do our best to live by HIS standards and conduct ourselves in a way that is pleasing to HIM, we will be living according to our internal programming and will function better and lead happier lives as a whole. How do we know this is true? There are many scriptures that tell us we will not only be happy if we obey God but will be able to inherit the earth as a reward. Here are a few examples?
Psalms 1:1-3; Matthew 5:3,
Matthew 5:5 goes further to say, “Happy are the mild-tempered, since they will inherit the earth."
We need to remember 2 things. First, we are all imperfect so we still have to deal with other people and by an large a lot of people will always be all about themselves. Don't let other people effect your own happiness. Second, everything I have said so far only works, if you actually know what GOD requires of us. There are many, many people who are religious but are not living in harmony to GODS standards, or HIS requirements. This, unfortunately, is where heart condition and humility and desire to be happy and add real meaning to ones life comes into play. This is a very personal decision and we need to approach it with an open mind, preparing that some of the things we hold dear or enjoy, may not be approved by GOD and thus would bar us from finding true happiness.
In the end, our happiness depends on GOD, and our ability to find that happiness, to achieve it depends on ourselves. Ponder on this, at Psalms 37:11 the Bible tells us, "But the meek will possess the earth, And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace." God is love, and can not lie, what does this mean? What is it worth to us? What is most important to us? Life is not the mystery here, that answer is simple. The hard part is if we have the drive to figure out what is required from us and to make the necessary changes to find out own happiness. Once we find it, are we willing to fight to keep it?
IF you do, a good place to start is first learning GOD's personal name, what it means and what type of personality he has. Its is hard to 'fear' a GOD we don't really know and one that is nothing more to us then a fictional or distant being. So start with making HIM real, making it personal.
There are all kind of answers to this question and many say it is a matter of personal opinion or for each one to figure out for themselves. However, the Bible tells us in very simple language what our purpose is. There are several scriptures that talk about it, but the most direct and to the point is at Ecclesiastes 12:13. All translations read pretty much the same so it doesn't matter which you use, nut it reads, "The conclusion of the matter, everything being heard, is: Fear the true God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole obligation of man."
Now many will read this and get stuck on the "fear the true God" and be bothered by the idea that the idea of being in fear of anyone to be a good thing. However, we need to keep in mind that this "fear" is a wholesome fear. To illustrate, to be in "fear" of God, is akin to a child having a healthy fear of being displeasing to his father or mother. A fear of not wanting to be a disappointment or letting them down, a fear based on love and appreciation. Deuteronomy 11:1 reinforces this idea of a having a healthy fear by not only reiterating some of what was said at Ecclesiastes but going on to clarify that it does indeed mean to keep "his statutes, his judicial decisions, and his commandments." Now you may ask, to what end? What is there for us by obeying God's commandments and to be pleasing to Him, outside of being told that we will be pleasing to Him. Many get stuck on this line of thinking and decide to enjoy the life they have now and do what makes them happy, and worry about the what comes next later. We need to take in to consideration Hebrews 6:10, where it says, "For God is not unrighteous so as to forget your work and the love you showed His name . . ." So what is the reward? What do we get out of it? Psalms 37:10, 11 tells us the outcome of both groups of people, the righteous and the unrighteous. in vs 11 it states, "the meek will possess the earth, and they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace." It does not talk about heaven, or hell, but simply inheriting the gift that Adam and Eve lost for us. A careful consideration of the scriptures will provide us with enough scriptural evidence to show that God's intention for mankind has not changed but merely delayed.
(I'm a Mormon) I was taught by my parents that we were all sent here on earth by our Heavenly Father to be tested and to get a body. When I mean by being tested is, we were sent here to do our best or strive to be like Jesus Christ in thoughts and deed. We study his word, and serve others and have faith in Christ, pray always and endure to the end. And living on this earth mean we have a purpose to fulfill, our loving, graceful, merciful Heavenly Father wants us ALL to return to him, it doesn't matter if you are black, white, bond, free, male, female, a sinner, celebrity,LGBTQ, or an orphan, he wants ALL his children to return to him. Never think that you don't have a purpose in this world, because you do, you were made for greatness. We can learn to serve our neighbors, and one way to do this is just say Hi! Or you could simply be nice to your family members, or learn to forgive others, or be the first to say sorry, or be humble, or pray every night for your safety and for your family's safety. You could also learn to appreciate what's around you and those around you. And by doing this, you start to see a purpose in you. Always remember that Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father loves you dearly, no matter your looks, differences, and challenges. They will be there for you even in the darkest moments of your life. I know that my redeemer lives, and I know he's always there for me, and he wants me to be like him. "I am a child of God".
And we all are children of God, never forget that. I bear a testimony that Jesus lives, he is merciful, and I know he died for my sins and for yours too, I'm happy to be on this Earth to be with a loving family and to have a body, I'm not perfect but that's not what Jesus wants, he wants my All,a nd my Best. You can disagree with me but this is my unchanging testimony. I'm a Mormon, I love to study the Book of Mormon. I strive to be faithful each and everyday, I'm tograteful to have a life and a purpose. Know you are loved.

"the origins of life"
Hello, i add, please the all notice these an important ideas from me about a life according my meta and post modernity mind, a life steps for a person.. in my opinion as follow:
a life after a god is non-limited by a god controlling, and anything after a god is possible by true method and optional but not obliged, because a god can does anything truly, thus a taboo can become a legal, and a fiction can become real, and a non valid thing can become valid, and a lie-ing can become sincerity, and a hurtful thing can become useful thing, and sly thing can moved to good thing truly by a god willing..
-not condition that the more is better, where sometimes the less is better, and sometimes the more is better, then you choose in a life what appropriates you optionally.
no thing after a god is ready "prepare-en" commodity where everything in a life is designing at order thing by true measurements.
anything in a life is "an inanimate and may vital" doesn't mistake nor anger.. such as the virtual character, but not anything in a life is Organism..
As the Bible tells us - We are all here made by God and being tested by God! If we pass God's Test, then we will go to life in Heaven after this one. If we fail God's test, then it is to Hell we shall go to.
