In Christianity, martyrs are not at war. Martyrs are those who are persecuted for their faith. Usually this is in the sense of a martyr unto death. Jesus was crucified, Stephen was stoned, Peter was crucified, Paul was beheaded, etc. Christians were martyred in the Roman Colliseum. Christians have been martyred for nearly 2,000 years. It is safe to be Christian in many places now. It should be safe everywhere. But there are those who feel their own religion is threatened by Christian religion. That is simply intolerance. In some societies that intolerance has been displayed as persecution of Christians. We grieve for them.

Christian missionaries bring the word of God to people wherever they can be reached. Christian missionaries do not fight in war. Christian missionaries seek to help the helpless and to feed the hungry. Christian missionaries seek to serve people wherever they go.

The video you linked here is not a true representation of missionaries at all. The video made it appear that missionaries force their beliefs on a vulnerable people. This is not at all true.

Military action is not at all related to Christian missions. That military action might foster an environment that is tolerant of people who have a different faith than their own certainly might result in Christian missionaries in greater numbers.

Christian missionaries help the people where they go. They do not go there to oppress. The general idea is to love your neighbor as yourself. That means to clothe them, to feed them, to educate them, to care for their illness, to be friends with them. Of course this is difficult when the neighbor is unfriendly. It is human nature that causes trouble. Christian missionaries try to love even those who persecute them.

Clearly, the video is for an audience that has no idea about the purpose of Christian missions. The video wants to spread fear and perpetuate division.
