the politicians have created this. see Erdogan take martial law over his own country.... they have a movement we have yet to grasp, so as in the US. they bring in those who would cause harm and then build a police state as a reaction instead of stopping the influx. and then they have their police state to control the masses, lets not forget that many gov's crave this kind of thing. it will stop the nations from escaping the EU, maybe control them during collapses, whatever it may be. and, by the way, Russia is the great satan (lest they dare to even attempt to escape its "Russia's fault"). france is creating a national guard force.

isn't it interesting that Americans get their privacy invaded, sometimes beat up even by agents at airports while the influx comes in, not just in people who take jobs but also in welfare and charter schools and rewriting of school textbooks? a casual observance would say that really the people are just being suppressed and being taught to get used to it.

watch young women convert to islm in mass. why? because the aggressive male will marry them and then they will enjoy the "protections" of the clan. this is sharia.

Allie, my "choice" is dictated by God.

I am bought with a price, and I am no longer mine own.

They hated Jesus; they hate his people.

If you wish to avoid an early death, you can always hide your Christianity and not go out preaching or giving tracts out. Just behave like you're a worldling, and they "might" leave you alone. Cease attending a place of worship in case a lunatic decides to attack it. Sure, go and live on a desert island, have a nice, easy life, getting suntanned while millions fall into hell for lack of knowledge.

But remember the attitude of the first Christian martyr: "Lord, lay not this sin to their charge."

The cure, of course, for this Americanised Christian preservation at all costs, is to read the four gospels, realising that these are not just religious and pious words, but the words of the Inacarnate God, to which we should attend with all reverence and obedience. Any other way of looking at them is mere head knowledge, historical savvy, neither of which saves a soul from death and hell.

You're either WITH Christ or AGAINST Christ.

I hope that helps some.

We are to live by faith and even die for it rather than cling to this world.
Death for the believer is the door way to glory and if God wants to take us by the way of martyrdom that should be considered as a privilege.
Set your affections on things above and not below Col 3:1-4.
Yes this comment was about the martyrdom of Paul and BRF also used the word martyrdom in his comment. I think the context was in the case of martyrdom. I do not know how it got changed. Sometimes hard to follow with a bunch of different posters. I think this is the original context in this post.

I was originally hoping you would like my vegemite comment John UK guess my timing was a little off(landed in the middle of this)lol.

John from UK, you folks need to be armed.
there's nothing wrong with the men protecting the place to prevent crazies from coming in.

I remember hearing from a missionary in Uganda. the kids would have to hide at night as the brigades would come in and steal them. they set up homes/posts where the children would be protected.

nothing wrong with stopping a crime. many happen here that do not make the news where a gentlemen stepped in harm's way and stopped the event.

There is difference in being persecuted or even martyred for one's faith, and defense of oneself or those God has entrusted to us for reason other than persecution. Context is important. The question is would God allow for people to employ arms to defend themselves? Jesus said:

Luke 12:39
"And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through."

New Testament teaching. What might we suppose the goodman was to do in this situation to prevent the thief from doing his deed? Humbly let him steal, and kill, and destroy? Maybe not. The thief cares not what your faith is, and letting him rob and kill isn't being taught here as a way to bring glory to God via martyrdom, which it would not be anyway.

BRF and John Uk, these folks are against anyone not Muslim. This isn't particular to Christians or Christianity. Also, Luke 22:36 Jesus tells the disciples to buy a sword. Apostle Paul appealed to governing authorities to save his hyde from the Jews. At some point the government turned on Christians and they just had to take a stand. There is a difference between taking a stand for Christ and another for self defense not linked to being a Christian. If you wish to not ever defend yourself, that is your choice. God is not calling us at all times and circumstances not to defend ourselves. Scripture as a whole interpreting itself bears that out. That needs to be understood and clear. As an aside, if I am out and some fool attacks me in the name of a religion you had better believe I am fighting back and will defend antine with me especially a child or helpless person. If I have to take a stand like the early Church, God give me grace to stand.

I know of no Christian man who would not employ any means possible to protect his family if they were in physical harm from the wicked.
That is well said MS like John UK said it is not appropriate to bring in scenarios like defending ones family like another said into this context.

I think that there is two separate issues one being individual religious martyrdom(like some apostles faced) and sticking up for others or what is right like when Jesus flipped over the tables of the money changers(he did this for His Father and without sin for it was righteous and he was doing it for another). Religious personal martyrdom should not be compared to when innocent are persecuted especially if they can't take care of themselves(women and Children for example)
Psalm 82:3-4
3 Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.
4 Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.

This is just how I see it. Like everyone's thoughts

Ahem, the context dictates all, and BRF was absolutely right. Thusly....

Mark 8:35-38 KJV
(35) For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.
(36) For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
(37) Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
(38) Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

We can either hearken to the words of the Saviour, which is the right thing to do; or we can get into self-preservation mode and deny him in the congregation of the righteous.

It is a strawman to introduce other scenarios.

You are mixing up Old and New Testament history the N/T saints never used arms to defend themselves.
In the O/T Israel as a nation was used by God to defend the promise of the coming Christ, if the nation or the line of Juda had been destroyed the promise of Gen 3:15 would have been lost.
Now the promise is fulfilled we need not defend the faith in such ways.

As for personal defence the honest answer to 'out of interest' is I don't know how I would defend my family my possessions I would allow to be lost rather than kill somebody there not really that important to me.
I have never felt the need for a weapon but being a sinner its possible I could use sinful means to defend loved ones.
DV I will never have to find out.

Perhaps a study of chapter 4 in the Book of Nehemiah, might be in order for some.Prayer,swords,spears, bows and shields were employed by God's people for their defence as they began the building of the walls.

I have heard tell that Christopher has a V Gun. It looks like a bicycle pump, but it sprays vegemite into the face of an attacker. It is reported as being worse than tear gas or even a tazer.

I bet especially if it was to get in one's mouth that stuff is horrible tasting(that is to the average American). Not sure how effective this weapon would be down under(or on Dave) lol.

What if a murderer and thief broke into your home and tried to kill your loved ones? Would you offer your and their necks for "martyrdom"?

"Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan jokingly suggested that maybe the Palestinians should try and sue God for promising Abraham, in the Biblical book of Genesis, that he would give the Land of Israel to his descendants."
Maybe spoken partly in jest, but this is the basic issue.
It is the basic issue for Israel, which is why Gilad Erdan made that comment. Don't forget that the Israelis are not Christians.

Thank you BRF for posting the Christian view on this subject. This biblical view is always the way forward.
