which taught many of the foundational
Doctrines of Christianity, form a large portion

 The question is, how much more trials and tribulations are you willing to undertake for the name of Christ?

Please, note the little mistake in number 5:
It is true that Peter was crucified upside-down, but not on x-shaped cross: he was crucified on normal + -shaped cross; that was why Peter told the persecutors to turn him upside down; he said he doesnt want to be crucified like our Lord, Jesus.
It's Andrew, who was crucified on x-shaped cross, as you said in no9.
Thanks for the reminder.
The disciples of Jesus died painful deaths and we christians of nowadays are not willing to take half mile for Jesus; christianity is turned to a kind of take-it-easy forum.
