She called herself a “critical thinker,” and said she therefore could not believe. I call myself a critical thinker and declare that I therefor cannot NOT believe.
We take out car insurance, boat insurance, homeowners’ insurance, renters’ insurance– all designed to protect us against a loss we hope we’ll never have. What if you have that accident you think you’re too good a driver to ever have? The good news is you’re protected. So, to fail to see the need for some “soul insurance,” to protect against a loss that everyone MUST have, is not critical thinking to me.
What if physical death is not all there is? What if there really is a lake of fire and eternal torment on the other side?
No, I don’t really know as the world counts knowing– but, then, neither do you. Just like you don’t ever know if you’re going to have a car accident when you wake up in the morning. But if there is, and you’re one of those who are not protected, it’ll be too late then to go find a policy. It’ll be too late.
I don’t know about you, but if critical thinking is the measuring stick, that’s just not critical thinking to me.
