2 Timothy 4:2
Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.
Trouble Believing In An Unseen World?
Blaise Pascal, noted scientist and mathematician who lived at the dawn of the Age of Enlightenment, sympathised with those who had trouble believing in an unseen world. He saw faith as a cosmic wager. He faced uncertainty either way.
If he cast his lot with God and was proven wrong, he would forego certain pleasures of selfish rewards in this life and then at death, fade into nothingness.
On the other hand, if he chose against God and was proven wrong, he would face an eternity of regret.
After weighing the odds, Pascal decided it is better in every way to believe in something that isn’t, than to disbelieve in something that is. The best course of all is to believe in something that is – the ultimate wager of faith.
