Aren't Most People Happy?
People Are Unhappy!
upon a time people were happy. At least compared
to the typical family today. Of the many people I
know, few of them are satisfied with their lives
or the lives of their families. Usually families
are divided by divorce or remnants of several
families are now joined as one. The same
household may consist of children from several
different marriages and unions. Drugs are a major
factor in the typical family today. One or more
of the family members are dependent on drugs,
alcohol, anti-depressants or some type of
medication or treatment.
upon a time, the typical family was united and
Godly. Geographics and culture were major factors
in the degree of influence God played in the
typical household. As a general rule; the closer
to God the family was, the more united they were.
The church was their rock and church members were
solid friends and were there for each other in
times of need. The children were well groomed,
clean, polite and showed respect for their
parents. They were taught manners... each member
was expected to be polite and courteous to the
other. If not, a spanking was assured.
that picture to the typical, middle class,
household today. Weird haircuts, tattoos,
unshaven, ungroomed, pilled-up, smoked up, shot
up, drunk, filthy language, rude and none of that
"churchy" stuff. Maybe this is not the
scene in your house but I'm talking about the
average or typical household. Perhaps variations

parental abuse, physical abuse, mental abuse...

the absence of God is the root cause of all of
is; Most people are not going to ask God into
their lives. They are convinced that He does not
exist and help comes in a bottle, a pill or a new
wife, husband, boyfriend, girlfriend, car, house
or some other gadget "as seen on TV."
is; it's too late for most people. It's that
there is no place left to run and nobody left to
turn to... try God. Or don't. Whatever you think.
If you chose to "try" you can begin by
reading www.john33.com and studying
one of the four gospels; Matthew, Mark, Luke or
John. Any one of these little books, found in the
bible, will tell you about Jesus, the son of God,
who has all the answers. This is why some people
who are in prison find Him... they don't have
anything else to do so they read about Him, study
Him and pray to Him. A person could try it
without going to prison. Maybe so. He has saved a
lot of us!
