Let’s imagine the following situation:
I get caught with my girlfriend and my family in a trap by some muslim terrorists.
One terrorist point his AK-47 to my face and says: “Deny your Catholic Faith and become a muslim or we gonna kill your girlfriend and all your family!”
My girlfriend is an atheist and my family are so.
Can I lie and say that I deny my faith to save my girlfriend and my family? Or can i deny my faith, become a muslim, renounce the muslim faith, and become catholic again days later?
I know that when you have a death threat upon you to deny your faith, the scripture says to preffer get killed than deny it. But when it is about other’s life? And when they are not christians and have nothing to do with my faith?
