so what would happen if you knew he wouldn't die? one of you would for sure die, but the decision is up to you.

Thing is, being in a situation is different than debating about it on a forum. I know the right thing to do is to save my friend, and if I had to choose now I know I'd choose that. But under the pressure, my fear might give myself in, and I'm not perfect.

or every minute and debate about your answer.

Um, okay? I usually just do that on actual debates so people can get a quick response. Nothing to debate here, really. It's what a person would do. If it makes you feel better, this is my last post today.

wouldnt they just kill you and your friend? Your better choice would just be to stay in the closet. What sort of sacrifice would that be?

Also what kind of soldiers are they lol?

Also even if he was a stranger that I didn't know I would want him to live and be able to become a christian before death so he can go to heaven.

I really have no idea. I'd guess that Fear would overtake me and I'd probably end up letting my friend get eaten. Although Ideally I would like to save my friend.

Hmm very interesting, I myself being human want to live for my self. Because like most of them I am selfish. Which in itself is a bad trait, but I guess it keeps you alive huh.

Indeed it does keep you alive. Although a choice no one has considered is when they find your friend is for you yourself to pop out of the closet at that time and going down with your friend. Better to go down together than only one to survive?

I really don't like hypothetical situations like this, I'd like to think that I would have the foresight to avoid this kind of predicament.

But if for some reason I DID find myself in such a dilemma...

If it was the best friend I'm thinking of right now, then yeah I'd jump out, of course then I'd get away too.

People seem to think they'll survive if they make themselves aware. Such is not the case.

soldiers have come to search your house! They will kill you and eat you if they find you.

I find this offensive
