If we as born again Christians tell the world the truth, in wrong places and in a wrong time, then we might proceed to heaven very fast, without dying spiritually. But if we shut up and are afraid, and live a few more years without obedience to Jesus, then how can we say we are servants of God?
John the baptist was executed, because he told the truth. But still he lives forever. Apostle Paul was executed, because he told the truth and didn't shut up. He is also living forever. And the first martyr, Stephen, was stoned to death, because he told the truth about the evil people. But he lives forever. Actually, most of the apostles was executed in a way or a another, because they told the truth to the world. So did our Lord Jesus Christ. But they all live forever. God ressurected them all, through the Holy Spirit.They have a lot better life now than we have here.
"For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's." (Rm.14:7,8)
