Gambling with Souls

Why is it that some people are willing to gamble their souls that there is no resurection, judgement, or eternal life? They claim this life is it--we live and we die. Because they believe there is no afterlife or accountability for what they did on earth, they can live any way they want on earth. But what if they are wrong? What if the One who created will hold us accountable on judgement day? Then they have gambled away their most important possession--their souls. Here is today's message from Luke 20 as Jesus answers the Sadducess trick question about the resurrection.
