A major ISIS leader, who was teaching terrorists on Islamic jihad and violence, became so depressed on the killing that he was participating in. So one day, as he was in a cab, he asked the taxi driver for a Bible, and the driver said that he knew a Christian who would be glad to provide a Bible for him. He received the Bible, and after careful examination of the Scripture, rejected Islam and accepted Christ. This story came from the Voice of the Martyrs which received the story from a trusted Christian source in the Middle East. According to the report:
As Islamic State fighters continue to slaughter and behead Christians and others, some of its members are reportedly having encounters with Christ.
A Middle East missionary named “Julian” says a sheik who served as a jihadist teacher for ISIS has turned to the Bible because he became “sick of the killing.”
The Operation Mobilization missionary shared the story with Todd Nettleton on the Voice of the Martyrs radio show. Julian said the sheik was traveling home from Lebanon when he asked a taxi driver for a Bible.
“The taxi driver knew a Christian in Beirut who was very happy to give the guy with the beard a Bible and then, ‘Sir, would you like to tell us why you’re looking for a Bible?’ And his response was ‘I’m from Saudi. I’m a sheikh,’ which means a teacher of Islam,” Julian recounted the story. “‘I’ve been in Syria teaching the ISIS fighters jihad 101,’ the theology and the practice of jihad. ‘I’m sick of the killing. There must be something better than this.'”
VOM’s Nettleton explained, “He had come to see that the violence of ISIS was not the path to peace. He was tired of it; he wanted something else, and so he was interested in having a Bible. ”
