Are we just animals living moments until our time comes?

    Nope.  Just an intelligent quark with some pretty amazing capabilities.  Animals are far more evolved by millions if not billions of years.

    No.   God gave us  eternal souls and we'll face judgement someday for the choices we've made.

    Yes. We are animals and we are alive, and that's about the most awesome thing possible. Once we die, we won't be, so my advice is: make the best of your life and enjoy your abilities while they last.

    No we are God's creation, so start acting the part.

    Human beings have an organic or "animal" component, although some more so than others:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_Man

    Human beings also have an inner self, also known as the inner child or soul.  This may be defended, much as Saint Joseph defended the Child Jesus, or somewhat neglected, as was the case with "Saint Martha in the kitchen" (her sister Mary was choosing to learn with the Master Jesus).

    As God and Soul are not so easily controlled in the atom-laboratories of scientists, there are possible "miracles," "Self-evident or Self-realization," Elijah-type "still, small voice," "moral wonder within," "starry firmament," and "living teachers" or reading of inspired Scriptural and other writings, as main sources of insight and guidance.  These are often covered over, a la Saint Lazarus, Martha's and Mary's brother, until and unless the living Word or Presence calls the soul to a higher presence than atoms-are-it or atoms-are-us.

    We are living, but what 'time' are you on about?

    You probably are, but I'm definitely not.

    Generally speaking yes. Of course there are those amongst us that think they are 'the chosen ones'. But we all all equally destined to struggle and clap out at the appointed time.
