In my paper I have decided to use a passage from Matthew 5:1-12. This passage starts “The Sermon on the Mount”, and the first teaching that is taught is “True Happiness”. I chose this passage because I have heard about the “The Sermon on the Mount” but I thought that I could increase my knowledge and awareness of it. “True Happiness” is something that I am always trying to reach and what everyone is trying to achieve in life. In the Bible, true happiness is dealing with spiritual beliefs in God. Those beliefs, which must be met in order to keep yourself faithful to the Lord. There are several questions which I must answer about this verse, what I believe it means and what it was intended to mean. Since bibles have been repeated over and over again, and they have also been translated from language to language, so I must find out if any important information has been lost in these transitions. I will also be answer several other questions, which I beliefe will be helpful to anyone, though out my paper.

All of those statements are God showing the path of true happiness through Jesus. Though few follow this path, it is believed to be the spiritual path of happiness and more people must be exposed to it.
Though this path you also learn the blessed rewards of living as citizens of Christ’s Kingdom. These rewards are very beneficial in your after life, it will
