Who Would Dare to Love ISIS? (A Letter from the People of the Cross to ISIS)

As the world responds to the Islamic State with hatred and vengeance, there is one group that is responding differently. They are not allies with ISIS but enemies. And they have been slain by the thousands in the hands of ISIS. ISIS calls them The Nation of the Cross - The ones they have killed are bringing a message of forgiveness and hope. Declaring a love that they do not know - A love that reconciles even the worst of us and can make enemies into brothers.

We worked with several Arab Christians and Middle East Refugees to get their feedback. Also had it translated by an Arab Christian from Egypt.
This is powerful stuff from the heart of where Christianity lives and was born. The message of Christ's love ... from a group called MIGHTY.LA.

This reminds me that even while we strive to stop ISIS we must not forget to pray for them. If ever there were truly lost souls, it is these mistaken people.

The transcript of the video is at their site. It's going into my quote journal.

  1. Extremely moving and powerful. I knew I should not hate them because I knew Jesus doesn't. This helped put my feelings in proper focus.

  2. Why did it take so long for a social media response?
