The thing I always say to non-believers or those who dont believe in God is; I'd rather go through life believing and die to find out he doesnt exist than to not believe and die to find out he does. That's one thing that makes me not understand atheists.
I used to think like that but to me it considered a one life wasted revolved around something untrue. I only get one life so I figure I'd live it as truthful as possible, not be bound by some security blanket that I believe to be false. I'm not that cowardly to stay with Christianity out of fear of being wrong. If I ever became a Christian later in life, I would be in one because I truly believed it not because "well if its true I got nothing to lose."
