Die For A Lie?


Would you die for what you knew to be a lie?

There is a unique distinction concerning the death of the disciples of Christ (all but one died a martyrs death) and the willingness of any other martyrs who have died for their beliefs.

The distinction is drawn between other martyrs, (in the example Islamic terrorists) who SINCERELY BELIEVE that they were right, and the disciples. People will die for their beliefs if they SINCERELY BELIEVE their beliefs are true BUT people WILL NOT DIE for their beliefs if they KNOW, in actual fact, that their BELIEFS ARE FALSE.

All of Christianity hinges on the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ from the dead. 1 Corinthians 15:14 says, "And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain." (I encourage you to read the whole chapter).

The disciples were in a unique position as they ACTUALLY WITNESSED the resurrected Christ. They ABSOLUTELY KNEW for a FACT he was alive again and that he was who he claimed to be. They were willing to die for the TRUTH.
