Four Things to Know About Happiness (From the Christian Worldview)

happiness depends on character which depends on God

The Christian faith, and its ancient interpreters are in agreement about many things.

One, that happiness is what we are meant for. We had original happiness (bliss) in the garden. We will have it one day in the future, either in the New Heavens and New Earth where there are no more tears.

Two, that happiness is not based on what you have around you, but what you have inside you. In other words, it is the interior world of virtue, character and morality that is necessary for true happiness.
