For NCS- Lewis structure, why is C in the middle?

I know the least electronegative atom goes in the middle.

I thought that C would be more electronegative than S because it is smaller in size and therefore has greater nuclear charge.

    Look at the resonance structures for the ion shown here:

    Other if you switch the N and the C, the nitrogen would always have to bear a positive charge, which would be a higher-energy state and thus less favored.

    That is no longer what he's speaking about. He is saying that seeing that Christianity preaches that your everlasting soul is at stake, and it preaches that without Christ, you'll be damned, it's of tremendous significance whether it is actual. After all, what's eighty or a hundred years on earth in comparison with an eternity in Heaven or hell? If it is not proper, you don't need to supply it a second notion in phrases of the way it impacts your everlasting soul (or even that you've an everlasting soul, necessarily). He wasn't talking about how most important it's or is not in tradition/nation/legal guidelines, however rather that if Jesus' claims are real, it's the fundamental factor if it is true. If Jesus was once only a lunatic, that you may nonetheless speak about the way it influences others and the nation, but what does it topic to you that Jesus says he is the one option to Heaven if Heaven doesn't exist (or if there are a lot of methods to it)?
