An Inconsistency

And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men. 1 Corinthians 15:17-19.

If I am right and you are wrong, then you have lost everything, but if you are right and I am wrong, then I have lost nothing! Blaise Pascal.

Whenever a Christian makes an argument based on Pascal's Wager, isn't he acknowledging that Paul was wrong, i.e., that it really isn't all that important whether Jesus really rose from the dead?

  1. If Christ has not been raised, then you have lost little, but if Christ is risen, then you have lost everything! :p

    It's surprising how popular pascal's wager is, especially among moderate Christians (fundies just quote scripture).
