Religious Experience If one really wants the Christian experience, he must be willing to make the Christian experiment. Said a seeker after truth to Pascal, "I wish of had your creed, then I would live your life." And swiftly Pascal replied: "Live my life and you will soon have my creed." "Try it" cries Coleridge. "Do not talk to me of the evidence for Christianity; try it." And G.K. [Gilbert Keith] Chesterton said "Christianity has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found wanting and not tried."
