Suffering for your religion



Shias in Karbala. This is one way of suffering for your religious beliefs which most of us would have difficulty emulating.


My question though is, in your opinion, is it necessary that a religion has some sort of trial or element of sacrifice for the adherent to show their total commitment? Have you ever fasted for example? Did it clarify your thoughts?

I believe that a lot of churches in Germany were built on the highest land of the town, with flights ofsteps to the main doors; This was done to ensure the attending congregation had to make a physical effort to attend services.
