Do you agree that, contrary to Pascal, most nonreligious people would consider it a huge sacrifice to devote their lives to religion? Why?
Honestly, I don't know if I agree with this statement or not, and this is simply because I have never been nonreligious. I grew up in a very devout Christian family and that has made me a very devoted follower of Christ. So for me having to give up my religion and live a life without it, would be a huge sacrifice for me. I would be giving up someone I truly believe in and love, and that would be a huge loss for me. So I guess you could look at it two ways, a nonreligious person might not believe in a higher power therefore they would not be giving up someone they care about if they devoted their life to religion. On the other hand though, I know living my life as a Christian gets very hard sometimes. I'm constantly faced with sacrifices, but for me I believe they will be worth it in the end. So, I definitely believe someone who is not religious to devote their life the religion without believing in the purpose behind it, would definitely be a very hard thing to do.
