Joy is a major theme in both the Old and New Testaments, so both Judaism and Christianity are faiths full of joy. But what exactly is joy? Where does it come from? What suppresses it? How does it work today, in my day-to-day life in 21st Century Australia? Join us as we tackle these questions.
The Church: Origin and Purpose
Unfairly Treated What is the most unjust, unfair, situation you have ever been through?

Often, even as followers of Jesus, we find our immediate response regarding behavioral psychological issues to be more in line with an unbelieving, materialistic, naturalistic worldview. This, in spite of the fact that Jesus regularly dealt with, talked about, and affirmed the reality of the meta-physical, the unseen spiritual world in which we live. At the very least, we should pause and pray, consider, and seek the LORD in the situations in which we find ourselves in relation to the people around us in regard to both their and our behavior. Maybe there's more to humans that random, electrical impulses, synapses, and chemicals. Where do we draw the line anyhow? And who gets to decide where that line even is? God has made a world full of powerful elements. Medicine can be good. We ought to trust in God and be wise. We are to live by faith.

We often view this story from the perspective that God can change our lives, even when we are in bondage. However, we also have to recognize that it is our responsibility to be the source of change even when we ourselves are oppressed, suppressed, and ostracized.
