In so doing being a proper utilitarian?

I have written about this before, and my conclusion is that reason says no, via several lines of argument. Reason counsels me to trust God not just that I am “lucky” and will avoid being sacrificed by being on the good side of some divine random number generator but rather that no one, in fact, is sacrificed, ever. Everyone is eventually saved.

Faith, on the other hand, suggests that even if some are lost, firmly to hold that I personally am not, and this becomes in a way a self-fulfilling prophecy.
