If you cease to exist after death, not much matters as you wouldn’yt know it anyway. Of course it’s a much different story if you do exist after death. Then ya kinda wish you’d done things differently. I think it’s probably better to go prepared.

That was Pascal’s idea, too.

There was a RC priest who put it this way (paraphrased):

If there is no Almighty and just eternal sleep, then when we die, we won’t know anything more.

However, if the Almighty does exist, then when we die, we will surely know it and be judged accordingly.

Now, with this in mind, how would a reasonable person hedge his bets?
