It is eternally easier for a man to believe that the scriptures are true, than it is for a man to believe he will live to see tomorrow.
By the scriptures, I mean the word of God, as revealed through the only true and living God, described, demonstrated, and proven in the Holy Bible, that word which is forever settled in heaven, whereby the Creator is revealed through the Lord Christ, as the only God of nature, science, arithmetic, the alphabet, and all truth; ALL truth, by whom and through whom, God has no competitors, even though attempts have been made by the fabricated many ‘gods’ of sinful men, who collectively can neither count to three, blow a bubble, or tie their shoes.
The scriptures. Guaranteed truthful and certified with the seal of heaven. His tomorrow is certain. Yours? Eh, not so much.
