Do you think you could confess Jesus in a life or death situation with a pistol pointed at you? What if you would become totally scared and deny Jesus? I mean I am scared of things which are much less scary than death. In such a situation I would most likely freak out and get an anxiety attack. But if you deny Jesus you'll also feel terrible and the bible also says if you deny Jesus then he will deny you. But what if you try to force yourself to confess Jesus only because you're scared that if you deny him you go to hell? Then what drives you would be the fear of hell and not the love to Jesus. But even if you love Jesus doesn't mean that you couldn't deny him. Peter also denied him. I think nobody can really say "Yes, I would confess him even if they cut me into pieces". Maybe you feel like this at this moment,sitting in front of your computer. But supposing this might ever happen then everything might be different. Imagine you sit in church and suddenly men with weapons run into the church and point a gun at you then what would you do? In such a situation there is no time to think, it's either yes or no.
