My Philosophy and The Secret of of Life

This life is a test, a trial, a practice run, and Good and Evil is what it is all about.  Which will each of us choose ?

The heavens declare the Glory of God (Ps. 19, Gen. 1,...)
Personally I think God's existence is obvious and not arguable, it is self-evident, and the evidence is everywhere.` People play with other ideas, in younger days I did too and came to the reasonable conclusion that no other idea is tenable.
Of course there are still questions for Him !  But it makes sense, more than anything else.
God made this wonderful earth and the universe and everything ! And He also made us and we owe him for everything that is good in our lives
He gave us an inborn sense of right and wrong, a concience.  From children we just know things like, that is is good to help people, and it is bad to do anything that hurts anyone.

All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Rom. 3:23)
God lets us sin, it is a part of learning.  Every one of us has sinned, has done bad and chosen evil over good at least at some point in our lives.  And it is what God expects !  There is only One who ever lived a life worthy of being counted Righteous in God's eyes.  
This life test is for us to be exposed to evil, enough for us to see it for what it really is, it is something that is bad for us and bad for everyone !  And it is for each of us to come to and make the decision of whether we want to allow it in our lives or not.  Sensible people will sooner or later reason it out and make the decision, and this is the secret of life, that
there is nothing desirable about sin and evil at all, practically there is nothing helpful and nothing beneficial at all about it in either our short term interest or our long term interest, it is altogether detrimental, and good is exclusively what we want.  And best, Good is what God Is ! He Loves us as His children and wants us to be like Him, and He wants us to want that too. And, it is what we are made for !  But we can not do it alone, we need His help and He wants to help us, so He gives us His Holy Spirit for guidance and comfort and strength.
The wonderful nature of God is revealed in Jesus Christ and His words throughout the Bible, as well as in the experience of our lives as we proceed and grow in His way, and this is the way we need to go, there just is no other.
God is altogether Good and He created us to be like Him, and He rewards those who diligently seek Him, and this.
You can believe it or not, but it is true.

We are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses (Heb. 12)
All shall be revealed (Matt 10:26, Mark 4:22, Luke 8:17, 12:2...).  This is my take on it.  God of course knows us and all about us, inlcuding all of our thoughts.  God sees everything that we do too and this great cloud of witnesses which I think likely includes everyone who has ever lived and those who have yet to live on earth, they all also may see us and may know our thoughts as well, somehow it all may be accessible from eternity, a dimension outside of or beyond time.
How then shall we live ?  With all of this in mind, imagine like a football stadium full of people who are out of your sight and hearing but are cheering or booing your every decision, every thought that you allow.  And they are in the place where they have the perspective to really know, that is, they are all on your team (!), and cheer the good and boo or, cry over, the bad.  Like, every moment of your life, you are the star of your own hit reality show !  Would the realization of such a thing cause you to live, behave, think differently ?
If so then try it.  You will be rewarded...
