No, typically they don't, unless they have no chance of winning their trial. This was not the case with Paul or any of the other disciples.People do lie , and they will lie to keep from going to jail or in order to save their lives.
They will also admit that they were lying when confronted with going to jail for their illegal and deceptive actions.
Actually, that's what you're doing.You are,once again manufacturing baseless and nonsencical excuses in order to defend your baseless faith and religion
- You don't have any strong evidence they were martyred AT ALL.
- You don't have any strong evidence that they were martyred and could have avoided it if they rejected Christianity.
- We know some early Christians were liars
- We know religious people are often delusional
Any ONE of these points is fatal to your "b-b-but they died" argument.
Apparently it doesn't matter to you that facts, science, and reason conflict with your beliefs either.And it matters not that others have opinions that conflict with my beliefs.
