HAHAHAHAHA!   I was in a new believers class once and the teacher asked, "How many of you love Jesus?"  We all raised our hands.  Then he asked, "If a man with a gun came in and said he'd kill anyone who said they loved Jesus, what would you do?"  We all said we'd still say it.

He sobered us all by saying, "I'd be the first one going out the window.  And you'd all follow me.  Be believers but don't be stupid, you're still human."
