I like Pascals Wager: it’s just a good bet.
I was thinking the other day about “glove”. That was the mnemonic I used to remember a passing thought I had about “guilt” and “love”. Though I live a life often entrenched in guilt because I have not done the things and thought the thoughts that I should have, in reference to God and my spiritual existence, yet, the guilt I feel is a small price to pay. Materialists, atheists, would say I have wasted my life believing in a non-existent God and especially in suffering a sense of guilt for wrongs done. Even if God did not exist (but I stake my soul on it that He does) my life has been better for it: I have been more compassionate, understanding, patient, forgiving, loving, and a little better at all the spiritual fruits of the Spirit mentioned in Galatians 5:22. My life has been richer for it and other lives have been too.
To the atheists I say that their bet is not a good gamble: if there is no God they still lose because when they have died they have no existence wherein to gloat whereas if there is a God, the Christian will not gloat but still win the bet.
But in fact, God does exist. And His love has been far greater than my guilt. Now I embrace my guilt knowing that Gods forgiveness is infinite. If He can love me in spite of my failures, I cannot fail to love Him.
