What if you’re wrong?

Most of us strive to give our children the best we can. We kiss their boo boo’s and brag about their masterpieces. We teach them right from wrong and hope they grow into a tribute to humanity. We make sure all their needs are met, or do we?

Inside each of us an innate belief that there is more to life than just here today and gone tomorrow. That we just return to the earth and that is the end. We all put off thinking of death. It seems centries down the road. Our time here goes so quickly and if nature prevails we will leave our children behind. When you’re gone who will they lean on?

I know good people who refuse to believe in God. “This life is all there is,” they say. There are no miracles, and God is a fairy tale that has been handed down through the generations. Yet, when tragedy hits, God is the first name they cry out. This is the only time some children hear God’s name mentioned in their home.

Nature isn’t always dependable. Occasionally children greet death before parents. What if there is a God? What if there is an eternity?What if there is a judgment day? I hear people say, “God wouldn’t harshly judge a good person”. Would you open your home to a stranger? That’s what we are until we come to Jesus. When we spend time learning, talking, and honoring him, that’s a relationship. He knows us and we know him, we become part of his family tree.

My family is my greatest treasure. Preparing them for their future is always the right thing to do. I would rather be wrong here on earth than in the hereafter!

    you are using Pascal’s Wager and the false claim of there are no atheists in foxholes.

    Pascal’s Wager only works if you have the right god. There is no evidence of that for Christians, and Christians can’t eve agree on what their god wants, how to be saved, etc. That no Christian can do what the bible promises any baptized believer in Christ as personal savior can do (Mark 16, James 5, John 14) puts another nail into that coffin. No reason to waste time and resources on something you can’t show exists.

    Atheists don’t call on your god except as perhaps a habit from a childhood of believing in something that never fulfilled its promises. Your god demonstrably does nothing at all.

    “What if there is a God? What if there is an eternity? What if there is a judgment day? I hear people say, “God wouldn’t harshly judge a good person”. Would you open your home to a stranger? ”

    what if Ahura Mazda exists? What if the Great Spirit of the various tribes exist? What if their version of judgement day happens? If there is a benevolent god, then I have no problem. If there is the god as decribed in the bible, killing those who dare disagree with, I wouldn’t worship such a petty thing anyway. I’m not controllable by threats of eternal torture by Christians who have sadistic fantasies. You’ve been promising that your god will come back for a couple of millennia now. Not impressive.

    Your analogy fails since us humans aren’t the omniscient omnipotent god you claim to worship. If this god is real, then no one is a stranger to it. Per the bible, this god knows everything and everyone and even make sure some humans can’t accept it so it can damn them for no reason as object lessons to the rest (Romans 9).
