Safe Bet

“Let us weigh the gain and the loss, in wagering that God is. Consider these alternatives; if you win, you win all; if you lose, you lose nothing. Do not hesitate, then, to wager that he is.”—Blaise Pascal

This is often called “Pascal’s Wager”. We all have to choose whether or not we will believe in God. You can consider the evidence of creation, Scripture and the arguments of those who have gone before us. But ultimately you will have to make a decision about God. That decision will not only determine how you live in this life, it will determine where you live for eternity.

“Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.”—Hebrews 9:27-28.

There is a lot at stake. Choose well.
