Last weekend, we learned in horror that ISIS had beheaded another 21 Christians, this time from Egypt.
ISIS’s reign of terror in the region knows no bounds – it knows no national boundaries – as these men were taken from a village in Libya.
Yet, even in the horror of ISIS’s barbarism, these Christians held true to their faith, to the end.
CNN recounts what one Christian villager who escaped ISIS witnessed:
The 21 Egyptian Christians were seized in the Libyan city of Sirte in two separate incidents in December and January.
Hana Aziz says he was almost taken, too.
Masked men came for his cousins and nephew in the adjacent room. Hana Aziz says he witnessed the scene unfold through a crack in the wall, hearing the militants announce they had orders from "the emir" to arrest all Christians in Sirte.
He managed to escape into the desert with 15 others. . . .
Despite the grisly video of the men's deaths, Hana Aziz takes solace in one aspect of what it shows.
"To the last moment, the name of Jesus was on their lips," he says. "As they were being martyred, they were calling God's name, saying, 'God, have mercy on us.' The entire village is proud."
They refused to remain silent in the face of death. We must not be silent in the face of this horror. We must be their voice.
