Crucified and beheaded – Christians slaughtered for refusing Islam

  • Written by:

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.

    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.
