The so-called Islamic State has officially stated that Jesus Christ is nothing but a slave of Allah and all the Christians must break their crosses and admit that there only one god – Allah.
This month’s issue of the Islamic State’s English-language magazine, Dabiq, featured an exclusive article that suggests that whoever refuses to follow the new Islamic laws must be hated even if they are radicals or peaceful.
The magazine’s editors further explained that Islamic State wants everyone to recognize the fact that there is only one god and his name is Allah.
“In essence, we explain why they must abandon their infidelity and accept Islam, the religion of sincerity and submission to the Lord of the heavens and the earth,” they wrote.
The magazine based its claim on a few speculations, such as one from Ja’far, one of Muhammad’s cousins once stated that Jesus is, in fact, the slave of Allah and there was a time when he did what Allah asked him to do. According to the publication, Ja’far once wrote that they feel like this for Christianity because this is the way their prophet has taught them.
“We say about him like our prophet taught us – that he is the slave of Allah, His messenger, His [chosen] spirit, and His word which He cast into the pure virgin Mary.”
Editors further wrote that in the future there will surely come a time when Jesus will resurrect again, and when he does, he is going to “break the cross, kill the swine, and put aside the jozyah [infidels pay to live outside Islamic law].”
“The true religion of Jesus Christ is a pure monotheistic submission – called Islam…when he returns in the final days, the Messiah will adhere to the Law of Muhammad and wage jihad for the cause of Allah.”
The published article went on to suggest that there are in fact four gospels, the New Testament is a lie, Jesus was never crucified, and St. Paul perverted his religion from within.
“Their hedonic addictions and heathenish doctrines have enslaved them to false gods including their clergy, their legislatures, and their lusts.”
The article further stated that Daesh [ISIS] are self-proclaimed, by ideology and by actions, and believe in those things that are accessible to them.
“We know that Daesh’s actions are animated by an extreme and intolerant ideology… and we know that Daesh has threatened Christians by saying it will ‘conquer your Rome, break your crosses and enslave your women,'” they added.
Meanwhile, ISIS thinks that anyone living in the West is a disbeliever. An article published by Mirror suggests that all the Christians who are born and raised in America are corrupted and will have to face the wrath of Allah on Judgement Day.
“You reject the oneness of Allah,” reads an excerpt. “Claiming that He has a son, you fabricate lies against His prophets and messengers, and you indulge in all manner of devilish practices.”
Furthermore, killing Catholic priest Father Jacques Hammel in France only proves how much ISIS hates Christianity. The priest was killed while he led mass at the church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray in Normandy.
“They forced [Fr Hamel] to his knees. He wanted to defend himself, and that’s when the tragedy happened. They recorded themselves. They did a sort of sermon around the altar, in Arabic. It’s a horror.”
Along with the United Nations, much of the world is trying very hard to eradicate ISIS from the face of the earth. It is only a matter of time before their claim that Jesus Christ is nothing but a slave of Allah will create a matter of discussion among Christians.
