ISIS Beheads 12 Christians, Including 12-year-old Boy, After Refusing to Abandon Their Faith

Christianity is disappearing at the end of the sword in Syria and Iraq.  ISIS has taken barbarity to a new level, raping, beheading and crucifying women, children and men for refusing to convert to Islam.

The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) executed 12 Christians, including a 12-year-old boy, after they refused to abandon their faith and convert to Islam. The murders occurred on August 28 outside of Aleppo.

“Jesus,” one woman yelled, right before being beheaded by ISIS.  A twelve year old boy was tortured in front of his father, his fingers were cut off and he was beaten, the torturers told the father to recant and convert.

“When the team leader refused, relatives said, the ISIS militants also tortured and beat him and the two other ministry workers. The three men and the boy then met their deaths in crucifixion.  The boy’s father was a “ministry team leader who planted nine churches.”

Just as in Foxes Book of Martyrs, these Christians have left a legacy of faith in Jesus Christ and a boldness to not deny their Lord.  They have remained faithful, even in the midst of torture and eminent death.

“Villagers said some were praying in the name of Jesus, others said some were praying the Lord’s Prayer, and others said some of them lifted their heads to commend their spirits to Jesus,” described one source. “One of the women looked up and seemed to be almost smiling as she said, ‘Jesus!'”

The religion of terror is killing those who believe in the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ.  The two faiths are as far apart as light and dark, one demanding convert or die, and the other offering forgiveness to the persecutors.
