The Book of Ecclesiastes is the writings within someones personal journal. Most pastors believe it was written around 925 BC by Solomon, the wise Jewish King. He describes himself in chapter one and two. The name Eccliaestes come from a group of 70 ancient scholars that wrote about it. It is wisdom about a life journey without reference to God.
It starts off as him explaining in life being negative, depressed, down and out because he tried it without God. In the beginning of his journey he purposefully searches for joy and happiness apart from God to compare the results. Anything away from God is not joyful, nor rich in honor, and incur more challenges. He starts out talking about his life being purposeless with no meaning. Life without God is a meaningless cycle of events. A person will have no protection, no understanding, no experience, no guidance, and no support from God.
People have tried since the beginning of time to put meaning to life without including God. For example, they took God out of school. Since then more shooting and killing has increased. People are unable to pray anywhere without feeling weird bc they put God in a box physiologically and mentally. People of the world would instead praise evil movies, sinful music, action and things. They have too much pride to stop following behind Godless men. That is why God wanted certain tribes to stay within their tribe and not marry outsiders.
As I evaluate the new generation society, I find people living without God have no joy nor are they happy. That is confirmation that God is the way, light and the truth. I will live in the house of the lord forever. Why? Because life without God has no meaning or purpose.
