From Life Under ISIS to Faith in Jesus
Four-and-a-half years ago, Kurdish People’s Protection Units along with Free Syrian Army reinforcements, Peshmerga of the Kurdistan Regional Government, and American and US-allied Arab airstrikes, liberated the Syrian city of Kobani after approximately four months of ISIS control. Although four months may seem like a relatively short time, the brutality of ISIS has led some Muslim residents of Kobani to question their faith.

If the United States does not develop an effective strategy for vetting Muslim refugees, we may become pretty good at shooting terrorists, but we will experience an Islamic coup d’état in this country of the kind we are beginning to see in Europe.
Whether we find a way to help the Syrian refugees outside of our borders or within our neighborhoods, ours is the opportunity to make a difference in their lives. In the present tensions and climate of fear, the greater concern is not with terrorism as such, but with the Muslim agenda for the Islamization of the entire world. There is no rampart more effective against it than love, mercy, and compassion coupled with biblical truth and witness.
As followers of Christ, it is incumbent upon us to answer questions regarding terrorism and Muslim refugees from a biblical perspective, not from the effects of fleeting emotions such as angst and anger; not from cultural bias; not from conservative or liberal political perspectives, but from an understanding of the Scriptures and God’s heart for all people, even enemies.
