It is thoroughly shocking to a civilized God fearing community that a group of terrorists such as ISIS would capture and enslave women, young and old. IraqiNews.com reports that young Christian and Yazidi girls are being sold as sex slaves. This is done to raise funds for the Mujaheddin in the battlefield. http://www.christianpost.com/news/isis-sex-slave-price-1-to-9-y-o-christian-yazidi-girls-sold-for-172-129266/
The militants claim to do this in the name of Allah, which most civilized Muslims find repugnant.
Martin Luther teaches us that Christians have faith in the Lord, stand strong and pray for those victims suffering in response to atrocious terror driven by wickedness and sin.
“True Christians wait and long and pray for redemption from sin and all evil; as we pray in the Lords Prayer. To believers that day will be joyful, comforting and sweet.
The damned are eternally filled with fear of that day, but this does not take away their sin, this fear rather increases sin and renders man appear unfit to appear without sin on the day when it comes.” Prayer Against Terror, Martin Luther’s Postil Vol. 1.
So let us join together, reflect and pray as Christ taught us, “Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen”
