I have run across a number of people who take issue with heaven and hell. So, I thought, what if heaven and hell didn't exist? Would there be any reason to believe in Christianity, other than to avoid punishment or be rewarded? (For the sake of argument, I'll assume that these doctrines are not tied in with the nature of God.) I would say that, if Christianity were true, we should believe it whether we are rewarded or not. Such a Christianity reminds me very much of the manly Viking fatalism: "The gods will be defeated, yet I serve the gods."
