a man puts his gun to your head and ask if you believe in jesus. if you say yes, he pulls the trigger and you die. if you say no, he lets you live. what is the right thing to do? most will say that we should tell the truth and die. is it better to profess our faith and end our lives, or is it better to deny it (but still retain our inner convictions) to preserve our lives so that we can do more good in the world? if jesus were standing there and you were able to ask him what he wanted you to do, what answer would he give?

now the scenario is obviously unlikely, but this is exactly how the media portrayed an incident in the columbine shootings. i personally think the story is bunk, or at least flowered.
