Who Would Dare to Love ISIS?
Over the weekend a video that has recently gone viral made its way over my personal social media feed. It was produced by a group going by the name “Mighty” but spread around by the much more well known International Christian Concern.
The video is called “Who would dare to love ISIS: A Letter from the People of the Cross” and it has caused some controversy. I think you’ll understand why after watching it. Some viewers find the message to be a beautiful reminder of God’s mercy towards us, and others find the message to be shockingly offensive.
I personally find the video to be a beautiful reminder of who our God is and what He has done for us. But I can understand why others would say that ISIS deserves no such “love.” Also, the persecuted Christians of the Muslim world are hardly lining up willingly to sacrifice themselves before ISIS. I don’t believe that was the message of the videos makers, but I see why some viewers would think this.
I’d be interested to hear from our readers what their thoughts on the subject were after viewing the video.
