Something must have a desirable affect on man in order to be good
Must understand determinism of the world

Happiness is a union of the soul with God after one has died
Bodily pleasures are relatively inferior to spiritual pleasures
Philosophical reasoning is not the path to wisdom and happiness
A love of God and faith in Jesus is the only path to happiness
God is the one to allow people to practice the love of God
One must love God in order to fulfill moral law
People are inherently evil; only the grace of God (or is it merit to be saved?) can save them

Meeting this purpose allows one to be happy
