Are you ready to die for what you believe in?
How would you answer such a bold statement? Now this questions doesn’t so much go for only Christians. You could be a Buddhist that is facing persecution, A Muslim, an Atheist? Maybe you don’t have a religion, but you believe in something. See, most parts of the western world, you don’t have to worry about this issue. You can believe in whatever you want or not believe in anything. You have this human right. But in many other places around the world. Depending on who you believe in, or what you believe in, it could be your last second on earth with that belief.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a great man. He fought for our civil rights, was arrested numerous time until he was assassinated on April 4, 1968 in Memphis, Tennessee. President John F Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963 He was a supporter of the civil rights movement during his time. Benazir Bhutto was the first Pakistani female prime minster until she returned to her country and was killed on December 27, 2007. Now their have been many people throughout our human history, who might not have “famous” names, but have died for something they believe in. In reality, Your not going to allow yourself to be sacrificed for something you don’t believe in, something that is no value to you. If you have enough conviction and you know in your hearts of heart that what you believe in is true, your going to be willing to go through all the miles to spread the truth, so everyone will hear it.
Leonardo Da Vinci was an architect, musician, engineer, scientist and inventor. He sketched the first parachute, first helicopter, first aeroplane, first tank, first repeating rifle, swinging bridge, paddle boat and first motor car. Da Vinci designed machines of war as well. Yet during his time, some in power consider him a revolutionary, some might wanted him to keep quiet about his ideas. Yet he stood firm and stayed the courses. Now to say it was that simple because I typed it, would be a hypocritical lie. Ideas come and go like a revolving door at the Mall. But sooner or later, your going to reach a point, where your not going to hide anymore. Where your going to come out and say I believe in this, that or the other. Ideas should be shared and not suppressed. Yet, when it comes to the Christians communities, we seem not to get a pass. It would seem that we are the problem makers in the world.
So what makes you want to believe in Jesus Christ? First I shared a link here,
You can check this out. I know most people don’t believe in Jesus Christ. I’m not here, nor is my blog intended for you to believe in Jesus. That, I hope that is a decision that you will make for yourself. But for me, with so many things that have happened in my life, the situations that could have been worse and it didn’t, is a miracle to me. Life is a miracle of itself. We have birds in the air, water to drink and machines that help us go in today’s world. But what is true, Christian faith? What makes a person, allow himself to be burned alive or get eaten by animals?
Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God. That is what I believe. That is the truth for me. If you see Jesus as only a teacher who once lived, or maybe you don’t believe in him. That’s fine too. He loves us no less then the other one. I value a person, based on his or her decisions and choices they make in life. You don’t have to believe in what I believe, but be respectful of that. I have meet great people who worship Budda or Allah, it didn’t stop them from being a human being to me, So why would I not do the same for the other person? If a house was on fire and someone needed help and you could for help recuse them safely before the ambulance and fire trucks get to the scene, would you risk it to save a Mother of five children? This blog is made for you to sit down and think. To think and think some more.
When the times come in our human history and we are faced with difficult situations, how do we react? How would we react? You could be proud and boastful, if you never been though it. I told a young Soldier when I was in the Army that you never know how your going to reacted in Combat, until you get that first bullet past your head. When your in a life and death situation, your never know how you will react. So my question to my reader is this….
Whatever you believe in something that is 100% true to you, are you willing to sacrifice for it? Willing to go to the ends of the earth for it? Willing to lay down your life for it? “The Truth shall make you free” John 8:32
