Does God Want Me to Be Happy

Today, man’s core belief is that happiness is life’s ultimate goal, something that has driven many to ignore helpful scriptural and pastoral warnings. For instance, someone could warn a fellow Christian that their lifestyle choices do not reflect orthodox Christian theology, only to be told in response, “Well, that’s the way you understand Scripture, but everyone has their own beliefs. I believe that God wants me to be happy.” The errant pursuit of happiness becomes a shield keeping the sword of God’s word from penetrating the heart. But would God really want us to be happy even as we walk in rebellion against him?
