The Wager

The Wager
By Jeff Johnson

'Either God is or he is not.' But to which view shall we be inclined? ... a coin is being spun which will come down heads or tails. How will you wager? – From "Pensées (#418)" by Blaise Pascal (1623 - 1662)

... they all got drowsy and began to sleep. But at midnight there was a shout. – Matthew 25:5a - 6b (NAS)

Wake up, wake up the sleeper,
Look out into the night.
Get up, get up the dreamer,
The dancer is in sight tonight ... *

Pascal is wagering,
Only a fool would bet.
