Would you dare to love ISIS?

"Would you dare to love ISIS?"

That is the name of the video below, a deeply Christian response to the hate and evil pouring out of Muslim extremists in the Middle East:

There are a number of reasons to take 4 minutes to watch the video, but thinking missiologically I can think of 3 in particular: 
  • Does Jesus' victory over death truly shape our mission praxis? 
  • What does it mean to "love our enemies" within the current atmosphere of Muslim/Christian conflict?
  • Where does martyrdom fit into our missiology?  
I'll leave it to you to wrestle with these, I know I still am.
