Alright, I'll concede that, but wasn't Jesus basically a pacifist?

He was personally, but he made sure his disciples were armed before they went evangelizing abroad. He also died childless and poor, but many of his disciples had big, wealthy families. People are free to follow his example utterly and be pacifists, poor, and celibate, but none is required to be a Christian.

Okay, I understand that, but if the goal of being a Christian is to be as Christ-like as possible, wouldn't adopting a pacifist philosophy be the best way to go about that?

Perhaps, but as I said it's a matter of personal conviction. I don't go looking for violence, and I don't want it. My original comment was actually sort of tongue-in-cheek. But when it comes to my loved ones being threatened, I feel a moral duty to protect them. If it were possible for humans to be completely Christ-like, then there would have been no reason for Christ in the first place.

There is no way to die with honour. You can only live with honour, and that's what I intend to do.

Maybe the term should be Die With a life of honor?
