Bernard Levin (not a Christian) was a distinguished columnist with The Times Newspaper. He confessed to confusion regarding the meaning of life; he wrote: “To put it bluntly, have I time to discover why I was born before I die? I have not managed to answer that question yet, and however many years I have before me they are certainly not as many as there are behind. There is an obvious danger in leaving it too late… Why do I have to know why I was born? Because, of course, I am unable to believe it was an accident, and if it wasn’t one, it must have a meaning.
