To die for your faith is one thing. To die because you refuse to defend yourself from someone who is obviously going to cause you harm is something else entirely. And let's stretch the point even further. You willing to die is one thing; but to expect others to suffer the consequences of your inaction is something else too. Someone comes to kill your spouse or your child- what do you do? Nothing? Call 911 and expect someone else to come and do what you will not? Pray?
