Bertrand Russell the British author, mathematician, & philosopher had the best answer for this. "I would never die for my beliefs because I might be wrong."

No, I do not think it would, but finds that I am Catholic and my religion does not endorse such actions. But the case of terrorists is very special, often offering to sacrifice themselves in their beliefs, but back in time, more precisely in the Second World War, we have the example of apanese aviation pilots who gave their lives and were satisfied and die based on their beliefs.

With that example, no. I don't think God would want us to kill ourselves and to have war with others.

nope, because I not a 100% percent believer on the teachings of my religion, I find so many things to questioned in their practices and belief, so my loyalty is not good to start with. besides I always believe that religions or believing in God is always pro-life, even to enemies, remember Jesus told himself to turn the other cheek and not plant hatred.

I would die for God and Jesus Christ, not for a religion.

I think all religion teaches us to love others. God never wanted to kill each others or hurt each others. Humans are creations of God and God want to love and respect his creations. I think religion teaches the messages of God and love of God for human and man to love each others and not violence.
