This one of the questions that are bothering me at the moment. Can you be happy without being free? Or will that lack of freedom always put limitation on the degree or length of your joy? What do you think?
I agree to your comments but with clarification. Yes, you can be happy and full of joy. However, God created us with the gift of personal agency or freedom to choose.
