True Happiness Can Be Yours 
Chapter OneChapter OneChapter OneChapter OneChapter One
True Happiness is something we all desire and seek to ob-tain. No matter what our nationality, race, age, gender,social status, intelligence, religion or education, we all want to experience and enjoy True Happiness.The fact that we share a universal desire to obtain and ex- perience True Happiness tells us that it is something that should be an integral part of our daily lives and that each of us is justified and right in his or her search or quest for True Happiness.The entire world system is always attempting to provide us with anything and everything that might bring us True Hap- piness, but if we are honest about the quality of our lives,we have to admit that we are not truly happy; something is still missing! The authors of this book believe that every person, no mat-ter who he or she is, is entitled to and meant to have a truly happy life, and therefore, we now share with you:

Chapter One 
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. All wasgood. The earth was a wonderful paradise where He placed the firstman and woman after creating them in His own image and likeness.They lived a wonderfully blessed life as they reigned together withtheir Creator. God gave them power and dominion over all livingcreatures on the earth and told them to be fruitful, multiply, fill theearth, and subdue it. God basically placed them in charge of every-thing down to the naming of the animals.The Garden of Eden, which was their home, was a paradise. Theword “Eden” actually means pleasure and delight. They had con-stant fellowship and communion with their Creator and harmony withHis creation. There was no sin, no violence, no sickness or disease,no lack or want of any kind, and no death. This was God’s plan forall people and still is today!Adam, the first man, and Eve, his wife, had the most wonderful lifethat anyone has ever had on earth, and this was also God’s plan forthe entire human race -- all who would be born of Adam and Eve.They had an abundance of everything to make them truly happy, butto protect their happiness, God placed one restriction on them.

God gave Adam and Eve the ability to choose. He did not createthem as puppets or robots. He desired a relationship with them basedon mutual trust and respect. God did not want them to die and toldthem to not eat from that one tree. They didn’t trust God and weredeceived as follows:

The consequences of Adam and Eve’s choice to not trust their Cre-ator, to not take Him at His Word, were devastating to the entirehuman race, both then and now. Adam and Eve’s unbelief and dis-obedience brought sin into the world and alienated mankind fromtheir Creator. All forms of evil and selfishness, along with sickness,disease, and even death, followed their disbelief and sin.Adam and Eve, the parents of the human race, chose to believe theserpent, the devil, Satan, instead of believing their Creator God. Notonly was mankind alienated from God by sin, but Satan now haddominion on earth among the human race. Adam and Eve had beengiven authority by God over all earthly creatures including the ser-pent, but by obeying the devil instead of asserting their authorityover him, they became slaves to sin and Satan instead of ruling andreigning with God, their Creator.
