What is man’s purpose in life?

Skeptics say God doesn’t speak anymore. Even some Christians claim God only speaks through the Bible. Malachi 3:6 (NKJV) affirms, “For I am the Lord, I do not change.” That means if God saved in Bible times, He still saves today. If He healed then, He still heals now.
