Romans 12: 2 New American Standard Bible

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

ISIL Members Demand Equal Opportunity To Blow Themselves Up

'ISIL members decry nepotistic suicide bomber wait list, demand equal opportunity to blow themselves up'

Davide Mastracci


'Saudi militants in ISIL are using nepotism to ensure friends and family members get bumped to the top of suicide bombing wait lists, according to a frustrated Chechen militant.'


'In a recent post on a website believed to be linked to a Chechen ISIL battalion, Kamil Abu Sultan ad-Daghestani complained that Chechens are being robbed of their hard-earned chance to blow themselves up because of the Saudis.'


'A recent ISIL guidebook explicitly mentioned the high supply of suicide bombers, telling potential “martyrs” to be patient after their training period, as they’d have to deal with a waiting list.' 


'Abu Sultan said the lengthy waiting list, which can reach up to several months, leads to some ISIL fighters dying before getting the chance to kill themselves.'


'Ahmed’s efforts were successful after a move to Iraq, where he killed himself and a senior police official during a suicide-bombing mission in November.

A death by suicide bombing is in high demand for tactical reasons, not theological ones, according to Thomas Pierret of the University of Edinburgh.

Pierret says that while death on the battlefield or by suicide bombing are both perceived to be martyrdom operations by ISIL fighters, suicide bombings are preferred due to the amount of damage they can inflict.

“In my view, the tactical advantage of suicide VBIEDs [vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices] largely outweighs their symbolic or propaganda value, hence (ISIL)’s heavy reliance on them,” Pierret said in an interview with Radio Free Europe.'

One wise statement my Mom has made in the past is 'Why don't they just kill themselves first? 


As I have noted previously in posts the radical Islam of ISIS/ISIL can be contrasted with the gospel and Biblical Christianity quite drastically.

The gospel and Biblical Christianity presents God as trinity (Matthew 28), as eternal God in spirit (John 1, John 4).

God the Son is incarnated in human history. Jesus Christ did the salvific work of atonement and resurrection which is shared with those in Christ.

1 John 2 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

2 My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an [a]Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; 2 and He Himself is the [b]propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world.

1 Corinthians 15: 45-49

45 So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. 46 However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural; then the spiritual. 47 The first man is from the earth, [n]earthy; the second man is from heaven. 48 As is the earthy, so also are those who are earthy; and as is the heavenly, so also are those who are heavenly. 49 Just as we have borne the image of the earthy, [o]we will also bear the image of the heavenly.

The radical Islam of ISIS/ISIL is in contrast interested in murdering those that will not follow its religion.

Or enslaving those it captures.

Or committing other evils against outsiders.

It has the spirit of fallen human nature (Romans 1-6) and is not from the Biblical God.
