Lecture 18, Pascal:
Often we use our imagination as a means of temporary escape from the pressures of life. We dream of an ideal world in which we are free from pain, suffering, and even death. But Ponce de Leon never did find the fountain of youth, and no one has been able to get back to Eden. It seems our thoughts of a better life are now only a cause of frustration and misery. Continuing this study of philosophy and its consequences in our lives, Dr. Sproul teaches us about Pascal’s answer to the problem of our greatest misery.
