first let me say that i'm not bragging or seeking any glory for my self. i have risked my life for others four times and risked losing my freedom once
to this point in my life.
it's always been in my nature, to help someone in an emergency or stressful situations. it's always been there, even as a child when i became old
enough to understand things, i always felt the need to help others. i don't think i could live with myself if i didn't. well maybe if they were a
murderous bastard i wouldn't try to save them. if you read some of my posts you would think that i was a real hard ass, and at times i am. but i do
have compassion for my fellow man and think every one should be willing to help others in these type situations.
now to address the question asked, i would kill myself for family, or a unknown child up till the age of eighteen . i believe i would kill myself for
a hundred or a million people. as for one individual, i don't know.
let me explain what i mean, if i can make the thoughts clear.
for family there is no question, i love them and my life is nothing as far as they are concerned. for a unknown child up till the age where they can
reason, i have no problem with that.this is a time that they are learning and haven't become corrupted. i know there are different views here but this
is for the sake of argument. after the age where they can reason to the age of eighteen there is still a chance that they can do or become any thing
they want, even if they have become corrupted, they still might see the error of their ways and change. at the age of eighteen, the law and many
others see them as a adult and this is when they become the individual i mentioned above.
now for the 100 or 1 million where i said i believe i would, i know in my mind and heart that it would be the right thing to do. in the scheme of
things, odds are out of those numbers, there maybe some or one, who go on to better the world. even if they didn't, it still to me would be the
right thing to do. not to mention that they might have children who would do the same. but you see i love life, and no matter how much i bitch and
moan about it, i love it, and don't want to die. i'm not afraid of death, but i'm in no hurry to get there. that's why i said i believe would.
and for the individual, i guess the above paragraph goes for them also.
also i would like to say to the posters that said killing your self is a sin. the way i see it, i think God would not see it this way.
> New American Standard Bible
13“Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. 14“You are My friends if you do what I command you. 15“No
longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard
from My Father I have made known to you. 16“You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your
fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you. 17“This I command you, that you love one another.
