All alone here in a place that has been fighting the same war for over a thousand years
People that want to kill me for just the way I believe
Kidnapped to be used in propaganda, my life has no value to them but in this way, no way to calm my fears
I am a Christian, I know death is in my cards, soon I will die, I will no longer breathe.

Caught up in a religious war, I wanted nothing to do with, but in my belief I will stand firm
Years ago the Romans persecuted and killed Christians just like me
Others like me these people have killed, this is a matter for concern
From here only in death will I flee.

I have watched as others were decapitated, just because the way they believe is not like you
None of us have a chance in the midst of those like you
God gives us a choice, but not according to you, with you our choices are very few
We all believe in God, who cares which religion is the right way, as long as we believe, to this I do not have a clue.

You kill just because we don't believe as you do
Why does it matter? Isn't the important thing belief in a just and compassionate God?
A God that respects how you believe, a God that cherishes the life he gave us, but you make our choices very few
It seems my time on Earth is running out, so be it, I will be free, from those that feel they have a right into a person's religious life they trod.

In my religious belief nothing like this is supported, but in yours I must die
Die because you think I am wrong but you are right
Till the very end my friends you I will defy
Kill me, free me, just because you do this doesn't mean you win the fight

I gladly give my life just like those from so very long ago
Send me to my God, in the end you will have to answer to him
Your radical message, you think you are so right, but to my God you are a foe
I will soon see my God, because the future in this life seems very dim.

Lets not forget
Lets not forget the Christians crusades,

The Gods They Made
I am not trying to dampen your beliefs,
Though Many Christians Pick Up A Gun Each and Every Day and Kill in the Name of God?

Do not make graven images an example would be a statue of Jesus for instance, do not take from what is with in the earth to the surface and change it, well Iron oars...

How dose this work? Thou shall not kill
and Vengeance belongs to god all in the good book nothing i have made up,

I think all in all you are judged for your sins and the wages for sin is death, if your good deeds and thoughts out weigh your sins you might be ok?

religion is spoiling the show

Very Dim
You are so right at a time like 500 years ago, we were faced with the inquisitions, where so many free thinking women were murdered, then the witch's handbook put out by the Catholic church, but it is the 21st century now and yes some religions are radical fighting for a cause 2000 years old. Don't you think beheading is rather barbaric? I'm a Christian and proud of it. To each his own, right?
