I have watched countless videos of people being butchered throughout the Middle East well over the last twenty years of my life. During Saddam Hussein's nightmarish reign I watched a video of young boys, blind folded being forced to walk off of roof tops several stories high. More recently, I have seen headless children, headless babies even, as well as people burned alive. Watching children carry around the heads of murdered men as a sort of macabre badge of honor due to Islamic justice is common place. Moreover, many of us have watched video upon video of children being trained to hate people in particularly, Jewish people in a classroom setting, We no longer have to imagine schools teaching children to glorify the taking of life, those videos exist too!
The harsh reality is that the videos are recording the murder of people.
Just this morning I watched a video of a young man surrounded by ISIS fighters declaring, "A Black Flag will fly over the White House!" In the video this young kid declares that Allah is the reason ISIS has won so many battles and Allah will help us defeat Australia, Great Britain, and America!
Skip Moen wrote, "The further we are from God, the less human we become." It's an interesting statement of which I agree. However, the god of Islam according to ISIS empowers what they are doing. Of course, anyone who understands Ancient Near Eastern Law, knows that ISIS is following many of the dictates prescribed in ancient law perverted by a madman!
Nevertheless, mankind whether following Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism or any religious system have historical failures when it comes to honoring life.
I watched the following video this morning thinking, "What an amazing creation we are when life is honored".....So far Allah, [and for well beyond the last twenty years of my life] does not teach the following to ISIS at all.
I watch a lot more of these videos because, "People are amazing" when we turn on the light!
Genesis 1:3 And God said: 'Let there be light.' And there was light.
The best part of being human is not death.
