# 25.B: Absolute Certainty and Contentment

Most people who call themselves Christians, and are living according to what they believe is right in God’s eyes, truly believe with all their being that they are saved and destined for heaven. And yet no one, not a single person on earth, can know with absolute certainty if they have been accepted as one of God’s chosen ones, regardless of how loud they claim salvation. So what is the solution to the false assumption that one’s sincere belief may be concocted? Answer: to live one’s life exactly as Jesus Christ prescribes in the New Testament with no excuses for ignoring the active commands which are hard-edged and seem totally contrary to nature and human logic. 2 Peter 1:10. "Therefore my brother, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never fall, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."

By belief in God through Christ, we all were meant to become powerful gods in physical form. When there is any type of dissatisfaction in anyone’s life, the reason, most often unknowingly, is because we are not living as we were meant to live. In other words, the only lifestyle that can bring total satisfaction and contentment is actively living the life of a powerful god of love.

If this statement is true, we can see why there is so much unhappiness, strife, and evil in all the world. To put it another way, no matter what goals a person has, if by some chance they are reached, they may ask themselves, “Now what?” As King Solomon said years ago, “All is meaningless [emptiness].” There is nothing in life that can permanently satisfy, short of living as a powerful clone-of-Christ-in-the-making.
