Yeah, I don’t understand why more Christians aren’t pacifists. If you are walking on Christ’s path, why fear death, it is just passing into God’s arms.
Seems self-defense is inappropriate for Christians. Might be they are not truly Christians and may be hypocrites.
Me, I expect to retain my right to self-defense and stand by the Castle Doctrine.
I often wonder about hypocritical Christians but when they are on my side of an argument they can come under my tent unless they start making their hypocrisy too visible.
