Would you being willing to die for your faith?

The following is a FB post from International Christian Concern which I saw yesterday. It contained a video which I would not watch. It would take great faith and courage to die for your faith. I pray that if I am ever faced with such a trial, that God would give me the strength to face with it with steadfast faith. It is easy to say you would die for your faith, until you are actually faced with certain death. Do you think you would be able to remain faithful to the end? I am not just talking about the Christian faith, but whatever belief system you have. I have just used Christianity as an example.

International Christian Concern
The following blog post contains a video we received from our contacts in Afghanistan of a Christian brother being beheaded for converting from Islam to Christianity. We warn that the video is extremely graphic and disturbing, but we post it only to honor the requests of Christians in Afghanistan who told us to share it to let the world know "how serious it is to be a Christian in Afghanistan."

  • UM NO ... GOD IS "LOVE" and I don't believe he would expect you to die for faith. We all die sometimes - what's meant to be is what's meant to be. But, I don't believe in SUISIDE for faith....that goes against what God would really want, he gave us LIFE and it would be wrong to TAKE away his gift in his name!

  • Im with Sabrina...mine would never expect me too.

    My heart is where the truth lies and the Divine knows this. My Gods would rather I stick around and raise my family and make the world a better place as best as I can from my little corner of it.

  • Die for what I believe in such as Equality and justice, YES, but I won't go out without a fight.
    Die for a particular religious belief or faith, No, it's just not as important.(This is not to say that the situation elsewhere is not important but they are facing very different circumstances than we do).
