Remember these names: the 21 Christians murdered by ISIS

 

Remember these names:

the 21 Christians murdered by ISIS

by Bill Muehlenberg

On Sunday the 16thof February demonic and devout Muslims of Islamic State beheaded 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya. For simply being a follower of Jesus Christ you will be killed by the religion of peace. It is not unexpected however. In Revelation 20:4 we read this: “And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God.”

And we should not be surprised at this either if we know anything about the real nature of Islam. Some 270 million people have been slaughtered by devout Muslims over its 1400 year history. Every day we read about more atrocities committed by this demonic political ideology.

Since 9/11 alone, there have been 25,129 deadly Islamic terror attacks. Not a day goes by when somewhere in the world people are being horrifically killed in the name of Allah and his “prophet” Muhammad. Not even godless communism killed as many people (although they had only been around for a fraction of the time).

Just imagine if this were the regular routine of Christians: killing every day and being proud of it. Christianity would have been outlawed long ago, at least in the West. But because it is Islam, we sleep through it all.

Rev. Franklin Graham said this on his Facebook page about the massacre:

The militant Islamic terrorist group ISIS has released a video called A MESSAGE SIGNED WITH BLOOD TO THE NATIONS OF THE CROSS showing the beheadings of 21 Egyptian Christians who had been kidnapped in Libya. Can you imagine the outcry if 21 Muslims had been beheaded by Christians? Where is the universal condemnation by Muslim leaders around the world? As we mourn with the families of those 21 martyrs, we’d better take this warning seriously as these acts of terror will only spread throughout Europe and the United States. If this concerns you like it does me, share this. The storm is coming.

Here are the names of these brave Christians who are no longer walking this earth:

1. Milad Makeen Zaky

2. Abanub Ayad Atiya

3. Maged Solaiman Shehata

4. Yusuf Shukry Yunan

5. Kirollos Shokry Fawzy

6. Bishoy Astafanus Kamel

7. Somaily Astafanus Kamel

8. Malak Ibrahim Sinweet

9. Tawadros Yusuf Tawadros

10. Girgis Milad Sinweet

11. Mina Fayez Aziz

12. Hany Abdelmesih Salib

13. Bishoy Adel Khalaf

14. Samuel Alham Wilson

15. Worker from Awr village

16. Ezat Bishri Naseef

17. Loqa Nagaty

18. Gaber Munir Adly

19. Esam Badir Samir

20. Malak Farag Abram

21. Sameh Salah Faruq

Please keep their families and loved ones in prayer. They need your prayers as they go through such horrific agony right now. But with all due respect, how many Christians even know about this, let alone care about it?

Western Christians need to repent of their appalling apathy, indifference and carelessness. Indeed, they seem to perfectly fit in with what Jesus said about such believers in Revelation 3:16: “So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.”

There are just so many reasons why the Lord Jesus Christ would want to vomit up these useless believers. Their utter lack of concern for their suffering brothers and sisters around the world is just one such reason. Incredibly, we get more expressions of concern from non-Christians such as Andrew Bolt on matters like this.

He seems to care much more about the Islamic killing of Christians than most Christians do:

Islamic State murderers are busy right now killing lots of Muslims they believe are not sufficiently devout. But they do have time to remind Christians that their turn will come: “ISLAMIC State has released a graphic video showing 21 Egyptian Christians being beheaded in Libya as a ‘message signed with blood to the nations of the cross’.”1

When are we going to repent of our life of luxury, entertainment, partying and apathy? When are we going to give up our trivial pursuits and our lavish lifestyles, and start caring about something that really matters? We live like kings while our Christian neighbours are horribly treated and killed. And we don’t seem to care at all.

The verse following from the one I offered above about the Laodicean church applies perfectly well to us today: “You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.”

There is only one remedy for that: repentance.
