Christianity: Are You Really Willing to Die for Yours ?
In one article a Christian who fled from his home tells a CBN reporter "They gave us four choices,...Either convert to Islam or paying tax [jizya, the Islamic tax on non-Muslims] or leaving the city or the sword."
Can you imagine being given this ultimatum? Because I can't. Its unfathomable and outrageous... but I live in America and have grown up safely; free to attend Church with no thought of anything bad coming from it, therefore; I have taken my Christianity and belief in Jesus Christ for granted, as I'm sure many of you also have. I've felt a sort of detachment or a difficulty to relate, as if I'm merely a spectator or viewer to the atrocities faced by my Culture of fellow Christians... But this this is not a movie that we American Bible Belt living Christians are watching! This is happening right now! In my life time. And in your life time. THIS IS REAL !
I'm a thinker, and since these events several questions have been weighing on me heavy. Most of my teachers in school said that if you have a question you should ask it, chances are there are more people who have the same question but are just afraid to ask. So I ask these questions (and give my answers) betting at least one other person who reads this has the same questions.
