Would You Renounce Your Faith in Order to Save Someone's Life?

posted by Eric Walters

Convert from Chad Loses Family Members for His Faith

A little over a year after becoming a Christian in Ngudungudu, Chad in December 1995, Jeje Nehamiah Baki left the town to meet up with his nomadic family in the wilderness. His wife had already returned to her parents and their nomadic lifestyle, and Baki, a former Muslim and nomadic Fulani of the Bororo dialect in Chad, was looking forward to reuniting with her and their two children. But he said his father-in-law, having learned of his conversion, seized his wife and would allow her to go back with him only if Baki renounced his Christian faith. He refused and left, returning a few years later to try again to persuade his father-in-law. The effort resulted in his father-in-law killing Baki’s first-born son, Compass Direct News reports. “Having lost my first child, and with threats to my life, I had to leave without my wife, but [returning later] only succeeded in taking away our second son.”

Yes. If these words satisfy a crazed fanatic who is likey to commit murder then yes, yes, yes. The faith in my heart is more important to God, which is quite separate from what I may say to a lunatic for expedience.

Religions have been a big problem to the world. Religions have given people one more thing to fight about. It really is about thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Love
God and love one another. Why can't we all just get along?

If doing so meant that I could save the life of a loved one, then I would utter a renunciation without hesitation or regret. It's a no brainer for me.

Now once I know that my loved ones are completely safe, I would make sure that the person (that was prepared to bring harm to my family) would never be in a position to threaten another family again.

no.... my faith is the core of who I am.... if that can't be respected, so be it...I leave it to God to guide the actions of all of us involved if it ever came to that....

Yes I would, as God knows one's heart. I know that some say that whole "denying Christ before men", but I believe that is more in action than in words.

The product, according to the brand, can be applied throughout the day
on dry hair if one's hair is medium to very coarse. As natural products don't have any side-effects, you
can rest assured for healthy hair. The product should be one that
is made for your type of hair, whether it be dry, oily, curly or straight.
