One clear message from religious preachers, which makes convincing reasoning even among unbelievers, is that God created every being for a purpose. The pastor of the church where I worship puts it this way: "if the carpenter makes that chair for a purpose, just for you to sit and relax, is there still any doubt that himself, the carpenter, was equally created for a purpose by God?" Pigeonholing the man, Anyim Pius Anyim, bearing in mind his life trajectory, into the carpenter position, obviously leaves no one in doubt, that the purpose for his own creation is already very visible to every discerning mind. That purpose for his creation was even made manifest very early in his life.
