Crucified and beheaded – Christians slaughtered for refusing Islam

Eleven missionaries, including a 12-year-old boy, were slaughtered outside Aleppo, Syria.

According to Breitbart, the murders occurred on August 28 when the Christians refused to convert to Islam.

The Gospel Herald reported they died while reciting the Lord’s Prayer.

Humanitarian group Christian Aid Mission spoke to relatives and witnesses who explained ISIS was responsible for torturing and murdering the boy and his family:

“In front of the team leader and relatives in the crowd, the Islamic extremists cut off the fingertips of the boy and severely beat him, telling his father they would stop the torture only if he, the father, returned to Islam.

“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 met their deaths in crucifixion.”

Militants also grabbed eight aid workers, two of whom were women from another village.

The women were both raped before their executions.

“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 hands to commend their spirits to Jesus. One of the women looked up and seemed to be almost smiling as she said, ‘Jesus!'”

The Christians’ bodies were then hung on crosses and left as a warning to anyone who dares turn from Islam.

Patrick Sookhdeo, the founder of humanitarian aid group Barnabas Fund, claims ISIS’ actions take Christians back 1,000 years, then claimed the terrorist group makes Nazis look tame.

“Crucifying these people is sending a message and they are using forms of killing which they believe have been sanctioned by Sharia law,” Sookhdeo stated.

“For them what they are doing is perfectly normal and they don’t see a problem with it. It is that religious justification which is so appalling.”

Christians are fast becoming extinct in the Middle East as ISIS spreads its message of intolerance.

Father God,
We pray for the martyrs who refused to turn from you,
even in the midst of barbaric cruelty.
We pray comfort for their grieving families
and faith for Christians everywhere who love Your Name despite dangers around them.
We pray for peace, Lord,
and for Your grace, change and love.
Turn the horrors to Your glory, God,
and protect our brothers and sisters in the Middle East.
Please grant them all blessing after blessing.
Thank you, Lord, for your loving mercies.
Amen.

    How much less hypocritical would these articles be if they pointed out that the RCC has done the exact same things in the historical past. The Abrahamic religions have all had their brutal periods. This is just part of what the Abrahamic religions are all about.

    its one thing to say it happened in the past and another thing to continue it today.every religion or civilization has some form of dark history. we are not stuck in the past. so its not hypocritical. it would be if they did the same in these time too.

    unlike islam which is stuck in 6th century, Christians has moved on.

    History repeats continually it is a base activity as human beings hate each other by nature I believe. However knowing this is no excuse to accept people cannot be educated at baby level on to love and be tolerant and as Christian faith does not now go killing in the name of Christ in conversion, then our Church has learned to be as it was meant to be inclusive and Catholic and not butchering as the Islamic factions live by, and although I have an opinion of hatred for anyone who does barbaric deeds I cannot hate the Islamic people for having terrorist abusers who abuse their beliefs.
    This will never end with some peoples in the world as their whole way of life is evil they are caught up on evil deeds being more worthwhile for personal gain, that is the way of the Human race and why Jesus Christ tried, and in vain for some, but gained most to live by his creed by his crucifixion and that is why I am Catholic and believe in Jesus and in the Church. But the devil has his ways too.
