 How strong is your faith?

View previous topic View next topic Go down 

Well, do you still believe in God?
 Yes (and even under threat of death, I will never deny my faith).
 No (I'm not crazy and I still want to live, God forgive me for this).
 I'll tell you whatever you want, please don't kill me!

Well, let's say you are a very staunch Christian. If the evil monster Eric Harris had a gun to your head and asks "Do you still believe in God?" What would you say?

It's hard to put myself in that moment. I was raised a strict Catholic, private school through 12 grade, alter boy and church on Friday at school and then again Sunday with the family (really twice a week?). So the moment I could I rebelled against it after having it crammed down my throat for 18 years. basically I have no use for organized religion as I view it as nothing but big business that is tax exempt (what's the line from the Queensryche song? Selling skin, selling God. The numbers look the same on their credit card) Anyway, that said, I do believe in a higher power so I guess I will always carry that fear of the unknown in the back of my mind. But truth be told self preservation is the most basic instinct of all living things and at that point you say whatever to keep yourself alive.

I probably would have said yes. I think it's because I was raised a Catholic, and couldn't bring myself to deny God in such a situation.

I am a Christian. Born and raised. I don't push my religion on others nor do I go to church on a reg basis so some may say I am not as Christian as others, but I digress. In any case if someone held a gun to my head and asked me if I believe in God I would tell the truth. Yes I do.

I do believe in God, it is organized religion that I do not like. I was raised Catholic and went to church occasionally until both my parents died. Since then, I seldom go to church now unless I have to attend a relative's funeral or wedding. I think the main reason I believe in God is that I hope there is life after death and that, at death, my existence is changed not ended.Yes, if someone was pointing a gun at my head, I would say I do believe in God then hope that there is life after death.

I'm honestly surprised that there's any christians on this forum lol, you do you though. I'm atheist so I would probably just say that.

As an atheist with rather strong opinions, I'm finding it difficult to put myself into the mindset of a Christian considering their faith.

I suppose I would say whatever I felt was necessary to stop the shooter because I dread the idea of dying a victim to someone else's fantasy.

It is really difficult to say until someone is in that position.

Christian. Raised with it at school, read the bible in prison and went every week, still go now from time to time.

I can't imagine what I'd say in that situation.

Richard Castaldo was shot even though he said no when asked if he believed in God.

He says that according to his current version, they did not shoot him after the conversation. And they began to shoot from afar and this was established by the investigation.

I know [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], thank you for clarifying that.

My point is that I don't think Eric/Dylan cared whether someone said yes or no whether they believed in God.

They didn't try to help Richard just because he said no. They left him for dead as they did others.

Atheist here. I simply cannot put myself in the shoes of a devout Christian, or a follower of any religion for that matter. I don't mean this to be offensive, but the religion is founded on disregarding logic and reason (faith). Again, I don't say this to be cruel. Faith, at certain points, is a wonderful thing, and religion has made numerous positive impacts on the world. I simply cannot comprehend it.

The problem with the "do you still believe in God?" question is that it could go both ways. There's literally no right way to answer it, since in this hypothetical situation, you wouldn't necessarily know the result of either answer. It's not like they were wearing shirts saying "Kill Christians."

That said, my answer's yes.

It might sound weird but it's harder for me to imagine myself as a Christian (I do not believe in god of any kind in the slightest) than to imagine myself in the situation where someone might kill me after asking me if I believe in god -- cause I can't imagine myself saying anything besides "not at all".

So there's no option I can choose comfortably queen
