@Mike I figured as much, and good point, prior to rebirth all are spiritually dead.

@JonEricson Thanks for the welcome, I think that happiness is something that can come and go on this earth, joy of course is a fruit of the Spirit. But the core message of the gospel, that is, the ultimate cosmic purpose, is the marriage of Christ and the Church after the destruction of earth, happiness will be there for sure, but it's far from the main point.

comment Who are “the least of these my brothers” in Matthew 25?
I wonder if 'least of' means 'even just helping 1 or 2' rather than a ranking of worth.

I am not sure that the core message of the gospel is to bring happiness.
