    In my other thread, amrchaos brought up an interesting question: Would you die for your religious beliefs? I thought perhaps it would be appropriate to ask that in its own thread.

    Along with the why.

    I am a non-denominational Christian, I do not care much for organized religion and do not belong to any congregation. I have a personal and private relationship with Yeshua, Messiah (I prefer Yeshua because that is what his contemporaries called Him in Aramaic). Also I do not care for televangelists or fundies. I do not believe in the "rapture," it is not mentioned at all in the NT.

    When you start seeking Him, He will find you.

    Guaranteed. Praise Yeshua.

    I would die for my family, I would die for my country, and yes, I would die for my religion.

    No. I'm no martyr.

    I'd much rather make you die for my beliefs, honestly.

    Question: How does one die for their religion? Give me a specific example (and not an extreme example, like if the right to religious freedom was repealed and you had to convert to state sponsored religion or be executed.)

    I think I would die for my faith, but I would have to be certain God was calling me to do so. None of this drinking kool-aid laced with cyanide because some happy go lucky preacher man said I should.
