What If You're Wrong?
Why Christians should answer the same question.
Christians ask of non-believes, "What if you're wrong?"
But Christians ought to be asking themselves the same thing.
They have faith that the Bible is the word of God.
But they're unable to verify that it's the word of God.
There's no way for them to make sure.
Faith tells them it's God's word.
Moreover, Bible interpretation differs from church to church.
Yet they believe their own church.
Meanwhile, none have the means to validate their understanding.
They just believe to keep the faith.
You go to heaven thanks to faith.
But what if they're wrong?
In the New Testament, Paul's letter addresses faith--
1 Corinthians [I]f Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. 18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. 19 If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.
He says they lose hope if they're wrong.
In other words, they lose the wager.
Meantime, faith makes them happier.
Well, then, it's like the old saw, "Where ignorance is bliss, it's folly to be wise."
