Christians believe that if one lives by the teaching of Jesus and obey his commandments what lies in store after death is a heavenly paradise. On the other hand those who rebel against God and live a sinful life are assured of an eternity of never ending suffering unless they asks God for forgiveness before they die.
Nonsense I hear you say. Well unfortunately this Christian belief cannot be proven or disproved. It is simply a belief. One chooses to believe it or not.
Lets look the time a typical Christian spends in prayer.
A Christian goes to Church say on average once per week on a Sunday and the service lasts 45 minutes He / She prays each day for 5 minutes in total.
So in the round of one year a Christian spends 2340 minutes in Sunday service and 1820 minutes in prayer. That is a total of 69 hours per year
Take the average life expectancy of 67 years (Encyclopædia Britannica)
So 69 hours of prayer per year multiply by 67 years = 4623 hours or approx 6 months.
Over a persons life of 67 a Christian will spend less than 1% (0.007%) of his / her time in prayer.
If Non believers are correct in their belief it means Christians will have spend a portion of their life (approx 1%) for nothing. However if Christians belief turn out to be correct then by offering up less than 1% of their life time and provided they live a good life they will have secured eternal happiness and Non-believers will face the wrath of God for having denied him. Now if this were a 2 horse race where would you place you money to minimize your loss? The Non Believers horse seems to be high risk, all or nothing. If I win I was proved right. If I loose it will be devastating. The Christian horse seems to be a have more favourable terms. If I lose I lost 1% of my time and I was wrong in my belief but if I win I get a magnificent prize infinitely times more greater than the prize a Non-believers would get if he / she were to win.
