Iraq's Martyrs

Larry T. Elliott, 60, and Jean Dover Elliott, 58, of Cary, N.C.

The terrorists call themselves "martyrs" when they blow themselves up killing who they consider the enemies of Allah. But these are true martyrs, giving their lives for their faith in the course of loving and serving their neighbors. World Mag blog

It's striking isn't it, the difference between the Muslim and Christian concepts of martyrdom. The good Muslim martyr kills as many infidels as he or she can before they die. The Christian martyr helps as many people as he or she can in hopes that some will come to know the saving grace of their lord and they are killed for offering that help.
