    • GOT QUESTIONS? Part II   If I am A Christian Why Am I Still So Unhappy?   Pastor Chris Price  
    • GOT QUESTIONS? Part II   If I am A Christian Why Am I Still So Unhappy?   Pastor Chris Price   "All men seek happiness. This is without exception. Whatever different means they employ, they all tend to this end. The cause of some going to war, and of others avoiding it, is the same desire in both, attended with different views. The will never takes the least step but to this object". - Blaise Pascal
    • GOT QUESTIONS? Part II   If I am A Christian Why Am I Still So Unhappy?   Pastor Chris Price   “ Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior” (Hab 3:17-19).
    • GOT QUESTIONS? Part II   If I am A Christian Why Am I Still So Unhappy?   Pastor Chris Price   “ Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world- the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does- comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever” - 1st John 2:13-15
    • GOT QUESTIONS? Part II   If I am A Christian Why Am I Still So Unhappy?   Pastor Chris Price   "There once was in man a true happiness of which now remains to him only the mark and empty trace, which he in vain tries to fill from all his surroundings, seeking from things absent the help he does not obtain in things present. But these are all inadequate, because the infinite abyss can only be filled by an infinite and immutable object, that is to say, only by God himself". - Blaise Pascal
    • GOT QUESTIONS? Part II   If I am A Christian Why Am I Still So Unhappy?   Pastor Chris Price   “ My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me the spring of living water, and have dug for themselves cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water”(Jer 2:13).
    • GOT QUESTIONS? Part II   If I am A Christian Why Am I Still So Unhappy?   Pastor Chris Price   “ I think we’ve lost the knowledge that happiness is overrated, that in a way, life is overrate. We’ve lost somehow, a sense of mystery about us, about our purpose, our meaning and our role. Our ancestors believed in two worlds and understood this world to be the solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short one. We are the first generation of man that actually expected to find happiness here on earth, and our search for it has caused such unhappiness.
    • GOT QUESTIONS? Part II   If I am A Christian Why Am I Still So Unhappy?   Pastor Chris Price   The reason? If you do not believe in another, higher world, if you believe in only the flat, material world around you, if you believe that this is your only chance for happiness, if that is what you believe, then you are not disappointed when the world does not give you a good measure of its riches- you are despairing” –Peggy Noona, speech writer for President Reagan
    • GOT QUESTIONS? Part II   If I am A Christian Why Am I Still So Unhappy?   Pastor Chris Price   Do our minds continually dwell on all we think we lack? Do we focus on the black speck and ignore the entire white wall of blessing? Do we spend more time feeding our souls with the things of this world rather than the things of God? Are we putting to much hope in worldly things to bring us joy? Lastly, are we expecting more from this world in regards to happiness, and then the scriptures would encourage us to?
