Even if it took deadly force on your part to save someone from being killed would you help? Or do you hold the belief of pacifism?

Thank you Tara for your comment, you're so right
Different strokes for different folks... As Christians, we are not to judge others, even those from other religions.
boot - sorry that is not true
That's not judging a person, it's judging a situation. Another human being is being hurt, or killed. You think it's okay to do nothing? I'm glad there's laws against pacifism when witnessing a crime.
People have free will in America. Nobody has to risk being injured or killed for others. What law are you talking about?
I talked to a Buddhist, who said Zen Buddha is Different from Buddhism. And read this to learn about it
There is a difference. I started as a Christian, then I studied many philosophies and religions from all over the world. I don't claim to be any. My point of view comes from looking at the high murder rates every week in big cities like Chicago.
Certain people, like parents and teachers, are required to report crimes against children. Some states make it illegal for anyone to not report a crime after witnessing one.
I agree with you.
SRI don't tell me you don't know that if you can help someone, and you don't, that you can be convicted of wrongful death, and, or manslaughter?!
I know in the big cities large numbers of people get killed every week, especially by gang members on foot and drive by shootings. People see it, but they don't get involved. If they try to stop it, they will be killed too.
then you would kill him because he is a Christian--- Right
Lol ... No that's not what it means. If I am able I will stop it with my hands. religious background / ethnicity does not matter. What is wrong is wrong and therefore must be stopped.
Thanks Arksya that is a very good saying, and very true
I share your dilemma people on the forums reject everything I say. We are mirroring something back to them, and they to us. Thanks for sharing
it is a bit of a rough / raw / bittersweet kind of learning experience in the forums. But it's a positive step to bridge the gaps between us all. stay strong and never give up, but we also need to accept our faults once in awhile. :) best of luck.
I accept my faults, and can admit when I'm wrong, as I have on the forums, but the others don't accept me, so I'm staying away from there
They rarely accept when they are wrong, instead they ignore and bring up another issue. When they change the topic, you should know you won that round. It is healthy to give yourself a break ... Jump back in a month or two later. Don't give up. :)
Thank you Arksys, you're a very kind person. I'll try to go back in later :)
Good for you peach. Read the comments under SRI's reply some people won't help, and I find it Inhumane. It's the one that is Hidden for negative feedback
Oh Thank you for commenting, at least you w2ould try to help
Because there are many Christians who are pacifists, and believe in pacifism. I just wanted to see who did and, who didn't
I do agree with you
Great answer, at least there's a few who care about human life
