"How different would it have been?"

How different would church history have been, if the Christians living in the 2nd and 3rd centuries,
had been armed, and defended themselves, rather than being fed to the lions?
I had asked something similar to this, a couple years back, but I may have upset some people.
I think that I may have been misunderstood as somehow taking a position against the 2nd amendment.
I'm not against the 2nd amendment, that's part of the constitution of this country I was born in.
It was put in there by far better countrymen than I'll ever be.
No, I'm not taking a position against the 2nd amendment, nor a position against Christians owning guns.
So, without making a position, one way or another, I was wondering how different people think things would have been.
Would they have been better? Or would they have been worse?
Or would have everything pretty much end up like it is, now, anyway?
