Folk, Family, Faith.


The better question:

What would you kill for????
Link Posted: 10/5/2005 11:39:34 AM EDT
My family and my freedom, without either my life isn't worth living.

Defense of myself and my Family.
Defense of my country.
Defense of some unarmed people being attacked.

Your list is great, just a couple of mods:

Jesus Christ
My wife
Family
Second Amendment
Life liberty and pursuit of happiness (my country)

I reordered them a bit. I wouldn't necessarily stick my neck out for someone but it all depends on the situation.

Edit: added "family", I'm a sentimental boy.

Life liberty and pursuit of happiness (my country)(The Second Amendment going away would make this country, no longer my country.)
My wife Girlfriend, but I want to marry her, so I love her like a wife, we are just working on the legals.
To stop the murder of a stranger (not sure if I'd do this 100% of teh time) Well I would not seek death, such as sacrafice myself, but I would put my life in danger to save a stranger.

I would die for my belief in God, my family, and my freedom. And yeah, I'd also RISK my life to save a stranger. BUT... I'm not sure if I'd KNOWINGLY give-up my life for a stranger. There is a difference. The first one is a gamble. I bear a heavy responsibility (five kids and a wife are counting on me) and I'm not sure it'd be "right" to throw my life away [even for another] in consideration of that.

I'd RISK my life for others, especially children (and possibly even particularly cute pets) - but in terms of knowingly choosing to die for something, it's only those two.

Totally serious. To me, she represents the heart of what my country stands for. PLus, it becomes a habit when you work in her personal guard regiment for three years - and old habits die hard

ETA: Most people would more likely think it's pretty insane, as opposed to cool (especially in the US, obviously)

He doesn't NEED anyone to die for him. But you'd have to believe in him to understand this feeling. Perhaps a little history is in order. People used to be killed for their belief in Christ. Actually, in some countries in Africa they are STILL being killed for that belief. I'm not one to think that if some guy's got a machete at your neck that it's not okay to "deny" Jesus to the murderer but never deny him in your heart. Christ knows if your belief is true or not. But the point still stands that there are those who think their savior is important enough to die for if it ever came to that. It's valid.

Its not a matter of need. It has to do with the fact that He already died for me.

Its a love debt that I'd pay if MEN ever forced the issue. (Google: Polycarp)

But Jesus doesn't "need" anything from me.

And, Christians killed millions of people - just because they didn't worship some alien god.

So what.



Any 'god' that you'd have to die for, doesn't sound like much of a god IMO.

Murder is STRICTLY probited by Christ. SO I REALLY doubt these you speak of were CHRISTians.

I don't think it's insane, I just think its cool you have a "leader" (figurehead or otherwise) that you are willing to die for (not just risk your life as clarified before).

I wouldn't put my hand up and volunteer to die for anything, I would put myself in harms way for my wife, my family, a few friends. I don't know honestly if I would be willing to die for anything else.

I thought 'god' made the rules...not 'christ'........

and I see no rules against killing, but you'll come along and point out that when you murder for god, it's not "murder".


secondly, you seem to be overlooking all the times 'god's favored tribe' was victorious in battle.
Oh yeah... not "murder"... I guess "killing for god" is OK....just not "murder".

I fail to see the point of you warping a statement and trying to compare a god with a point on a map.
