So this impressionable young lad goes off to Iraq to fight for the Islamic State in jihad. But because these people are pure evil, they used him asap, to drive a truck towards their targets and then persuaded him to voluntarily detonate the explosives that he was carrying, thus killing everyone around him. Tragic.
What he was told, was that, on completion of his mission (his death and the deaths of his targets), he would be assured of a place in heaven and have 70 black haired virgins waiting on his every need for all eternity.
He was lied to of course, as all muslims are lied to. The ONLY way that a muslim is guaranteed entrance into heaven is in Jihad (just ask one!). Which explains why these fools are so willing to kill everyone in sight then run out into a hail of bullets like Butch and Sundance. This is the real truth about islam. It is not a religion of peace.
Sadly, this young man didn't wake up in heaven. Instead, he died pointlessly, as a sinner, taking many others with him in the explosion. To his utter astonishment no doubt, he woke up in hell and is now awaiting judgement.
But here's the thing; if you do not have the blood covering of Jesus Christ, your sins forgiven you by the blood atonement freely given (no works by you involved), then you will get to see this guy in person, in hell, like many of his victims.
Now that would truly be tragic.
I pray for his parents and loved ones and those of his victims.
Jesus Christ is God. He has paid the ultimate price for you, in full, once and for all. It is a loving gift! All He is asking of you is for you to repent, to turn to Him in humility, as a sinner, for you to ask Him to forgive you of your sins and to call on His name. He has promised to save all that come to Him and not turn anyone away. God cannot lie.
Once the body of Christ (the true church, the bride) has left ('in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye', 1Cor 15:52) you are going to find it very difficult to get saved. And there is no 'undo' button to click, no 'ctrl-z'. You cannot go back and redo. Think about that.
That could happen at any ti
