In the context of this thread, are the words value, meaning, and purpose all interchangeable?
I think they are to BibleStudent, but they aren't to me. Value is something I do when it comes to various aspects of life. I value friends and family and freedom (well, I used to value freedom. That's gone.) Purpose is a word when looking at things from the outside, I suppose (people eat because they get hungry, and they get hungry because their body needs food, therefore, the purpose of eating is to refuel the body). But meaning? Not necessary. Any meaning attached to life is made up. Because there isn't one. And we don't need a "meaning". That is vanity at its finest.
