Present life and future death

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Present life and future death

by Joshua Agan

I love to laugh. I love to poke fun at absurdities, inconsistencies, and even my own problems in life. I believe that if you can’t laugh at yourself and laugh with others, then you’re doing life the hard way. Life’s too short not to enjoy (and none of us make it out alive anyway). 😂

But there is not only a time for laughter—there are times that we have to be serious and even somber. Read the rest of this entry

Leaving the abortion industry

by Abby Johnson: ProWoman, ProChild, ProLife

A few years ago, I received a call from an abortion clinic worker who wanted to leave her job. I spoke with her for a while. She talked about “evil” in the clinic. We talked about The Lord.

You can’t win Pascal’s Wager

Pascal’s Wager is an argument for believing in God even if you see no convincing evidence that he exists.  It was proposed by the 17th century mathematician and philosopher Blaise Pascal.

It is based on the premise that by the way we live we are betting on whether or not God exists.  If we bet that God exists and we are right we gain eternal life.  If we are wrong we simply cease to exist when we die and don’t suffer any penalty.  If we bet that there is no God and are wrong we suffer eternal pain.  If we are right we cease to exist at death and gain nothing.

Pascal’s conclusion is three fourths correct.  If there is no God it doesn’t matter whether or not we believe in him.  If we live as if there is no God and in fact there is one we will suffer eternally.  But if there is a God, simply living as if he exists is no guarantee that we will receive eternal life.

It is a great mystery that though the human heart longs for Truth, in which alone it finds liberation and delight, the first reaction of human beings to Truth is one of hostility and fear! -Anthony de Mello

For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. (Exodus 20:11)
