This man, who calls himself Abu Issa Al-Almani, says he was born a Christian in Germany but converted to Islam years later when he ‘found the truth.’ He joined ISIS and has made videos of himself flogging prisoners and watching ISIS mutilate people’s limbs, and promises terrorist attacks against the West:
A German jihadi who fled his country to join ISIS has appeared on video whipping prisoners, attending public amputations and calling for lone-wolf terror attacks on the West.
The fanatic, who calls himself Abu Issa al-Almani, claims he converted from Christianity to Islam before travelling from Germany to Iraq and joining the terror group.
The video, called ‘From Darkness Into Light’, shows images of Christian churches and priests as the German describes his former life. (source)
There are many people who go around and say that once you are a Christian, you can no longer lose your salvation, or that if you did apostatize, then you were not really a Christian to being with. This story flies in the face of this theory, as does basic experience throughout history. All men have free choice, and that include the choice to do evil as is the choice to do good. Just as becoming a Christian is, at its final essence, a choice, so is leaving the true Faith a choice as well.
Second, and even more importantly, is the effect that Christianity has on a man. While the details of this man’s personal life are yet to be revealed, the basic fact is that Christianity teaches man to follow in the example of God and as Christ did- to deny oneself, to seek the good of another, and ultimately to renounce the good of this life to attain for oneself and one’s neighbor eternal beatitude, which is perfect union with God in the beatific vision. Islam on the other hand says that divine beatitude beings in this life and is evidenced by the acquisition of power, money, and sex in a hedonistic orgy of violence and moral filth that begins in this life and likewise continues into eternity.
Note the dead expression in both photos. This is common among orthodox Muslims, especially converts, as it is a sign of the death of the conscience that has taken place within them.
Many people, especially men who are malicious, power-hungry, or with distorted visions of themselves and the world turn to Islam because unlike Christianity, which teaches self-control and limits, Islam abandons control and sanctifies license to the most bestial behavior man can engage in with protection under the banner of divine ordinance. It is the dream of a tyrant, the philosophy of the wicked, and as all of the great saints have noted, the final and perfected form of all heresy as it is the absolute rebellion against the faith of Christ.
Men like “Abu Issa Al-Almani” are a great danger to the West, and there are more of them coming as the fruits of the moral sewer which has showered western society for over a century now are coming into their natural maturation. What you see men like him doing should not be thought of as something unnatural or even abnormal, but the advanced stages of the decline and Islamization of the corpse that is the Western World. Individual men like him can be stopped by police or anti-terrorism forces, but what they can do is deal with they symptoms of the problem alone- they cannot address the rot which brought us to this problem and has to be removed.
Yes, men like “Abu Issa Al-Almani” must be taken seriously and along with the Muslim groups and individuals who associate with him dealt with accordingly, if not by police then by the people who live in society. But ultimately, is will be a return to the Faith which bore Western society into existence that men like him will not only be stopped, but eliminated completely, as they can only draw their strength from a formerly Christian society turned apostate.
