It’s important though that the definition of martyrdom because this word is mangled and abused and used by people like ISIS, Boko Haram, you know that the Taliban, et cetera. They called those who kill themselves, the kamikazes in World War II, though those who kill themselves they would they would use, at least the radical Muslims, would use that word martyrdom for what they’re doing. That is not, of course, the Christian concept of martyrdom. Martyrdom means that you want to live. You see life as a gift. You would never take another life. Or neither you would ever take your own life. Those lives are sacred. You would never do that. But if your life is taken from you for the sake of Christ then you’ve died a martyr.
