I've only been a Christian a little more than 6 years. But in that time, I've realized just how deep the love of my Heavenly Father is, and what my Lord and Savior went through, to do for me what I was incapable of doing for myself-saving my soul from eternal damnation,and giving me the promise of eternal life. Jesus came and willingly died for me, I love living for Him,and I know I trust in His word strongly enough that if someone put a gun to my head and said "renounce God or I'll kill you" I'd say "shoot me." In God's word it tells us "to be absent from the body is to be present with the spirit." So, I know when I shut my eyes forever here, I will open them in Heaven. So, regardless of what you believe, be it God, Atheist, Pagan, Wiccan, Islam, Buddist,whatever, would you be willing to die for your beliefs?

My answer would be similar to Laura. My spiritual path is not one where I would be eternally damned if I denied my beliefs in order to save my or my family's life. But if someone were forcing me to go along with their religion, under threat of death, I would most likely tell them to go pack sand.
