Tony: Don't forget that while we have the earth in subjection to us, we are posed to be in subjection to christ, who is in turn in subjection to Jehovah. We are PART of a purpose. It is less than wise to put on airs and assume we are the end-all-be-all of creation. Even if it is true, it closes your mind to the prospect that there is a purpose greater than ourselves.

As a Jew I don't find that in my Old Testament.

Even as a Jew there are OT references to the messiah that would rule as God's anointed king, and that we would be in subjection to him. Regardless of whether you view Jesus as the Christ, or some future person, is immaterial in regards to that point. The main point to me is that we are neither at the top or bottom, and that we have a purpose and function within that organized structure.

What is the purpose of living? How about, 'to reduce needless suffering. It seems to me to be a worthy purpose.
