Man is created in God's image. What is god? A creator. Therefore man's Purpose in life is to create and be creative. I believe man can take that road instead of salvation. I believe all the greatest artists even though they were not Christians, like Ludwig van Beethoven, Goethe, Pushkin etc were saved. After what they have done to humanity I dont Believe they are damned. Otherwise the majority of mankind's great artists are in hell. If that is the case I wonder why hell is so bad.
