Insulin or Ice Cream?

Recently, I opened my talk before a group in Southern California with an  observation:  There's a difference between ice cream and insulin.

When choosing ice cream, you can choose what you like..

When choosing medicine, you must choose what heals.

When choosing ice cream you can choose what's true for you.

When choosing medicine you must choose what's true.

There is significant confusion on this point.  Americans think of God, religion, and morals like ice cream and not like insulin.  They choose religious views according to tastes, according to what they prefer rather than according to what's true.

Non-believers view religion like ice cream.  Remarkably, Christians often do the same thing.
