Secularization: not that the world does not know you but that it is forgetting you.

What do you have that the world should be reminded of you?

Will you be reduced to punishing us? Doesn't that mean: you lose?

How to feel that one is not a chump for believing in you.

So Paul: If Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

When I think of heaven, earth brightens.

If there is no God, everything is permitted, even belief in God.

Needed: a theory of deep happiness.
