    Would you be willing to change your religion or lose your faith to save the world?

    Would you be willing to go to hell so that others will have a better life?

    But I will continue to try and save them from going to hell so they will have a better life for eternity.

    The greatest sacrifice is to give your life for another, so it would follow that to deny yourself something for the betterment of the rest of mankind would be a noble act. I don't see how a noble act would cause you to be condemned to hell.

    To answer your question.

    I would not change my religion or lose my faith to change the World. I would not become a sacrificial lamb for others to have a better life. Man/Woman has free will therefore; they know right from wrong. If one person sacrificed themselves for another, people would still act in the same manner. But if a person chose to sacrifice themselves I also don't see why they would be condemned to hell, that doesn't make any sense.

    It would be impossible for me to deny God in my heart.  I'd be playing a deceptive game if I tried to work around that for any reason.

    No. Religion is faith and faith gives hope, life. I would die if I changed my faith . I think if one is faithful to one's religion or values or ideals or principles or thinking or people or so many other things,one's life is worth living. Otherwise you are as good as dead.

    or save the world by telling and showing others about Christ. Interesting question, it would take a truly selfless person to say yes to this, especially seeing that humans are selfish beings

    Never will i change my religion nor lose my faith to save the world. Although it's good for those acting as an agent to devil to quit inorder to save world.

    That is a bit of an oxymoron isn't it - going to hell for a good act; that tells me you are in a false religion to begin with; one nobody should belong to to start with.  My religion would embrace the act, if that is what was required, and I wouldn't have to lose my faith to do it.

    The only answer is a clear "No." You would in reality not have changed your faith at all, for you do not choose your belief in what constitutes the truth, you derive it from experience, knowledge and conviction. Even were you to abandon it in your interactions with the world, you would still hold your beliefs in your own mind, and so you would merely have transformed yourself into a hypocrite who shows a false face to the world. That is not a change in your religion, just a change in your professing of it.

    "descendit ad inferos" in the apostles creed means that Jesus goes to hell. It is sometimes called the "harrowing of hell" and so if you are a christian and you want to follow in his footsteps then you will most likely believe the apostle Paul when he says "For I could wish that I myself were cursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, those of my own race" Romans 9:3 and there are many other examples but I guess some people believe that losing one's faith is not part of christianity - neither is following Jesus and ending up saying "My God, My God- why hast thou forsaken me! My guess is that christians exceed Jesus.

    I don't think people really understand what the gospel teaches because if they did understand then they would not say things like "I will never deny you" because Peter said those words and Jesus replied

    Before the cock crows you will have denied me three times

    It looks like christians here think they are greater than the apostle Peter as well and not just Jesus.

    changing our faith or religion will not save the world. Instead, if we can dive deep down into our faith, it can become useful to others.

    It is very important to have a strong faith in what we believe. faith is not usually changed unless the person has some tragedies in life. If we follow one faith, we can spiritually progress. read more

    Sorry, I'm too selfish.  Besides, we all have a free choice, and nobody really has to go to hell.

    I would like to think that I'd be willing to die so that others would see the truth and find the Lord, but I don't know what I would do if it really came down to it.
