Their Blood Cries Out

Why do the Taliban kill Christian humanitarian aid workers?

The Taliban and other radical Muslims do not consider Christians working among Muslims as innocent but as guilty. While they may be providing humanitarian help to fellow countrymen, in the final analysis, these Christians are (perceived by the Taliban) as seeking to spread the Christian message. As such they are guilty of subtly leading Muslims away from the faith. Thus the Taliban see themselves as protectors of the Ummah. In effect, they feel that they are doing God a service by killing Christians. But was this not foretold by Christ?

Jesus warned that some of his followers would be martyred by god-fearing fanatics
Jesus forewarned his disciples, “I have told you these things so you won't abandon your faith. For you will be expelled from the synagogues, and the time is coming when those who kill you will think they are doing a holy service for God.” (John 16:2; Luke 13:12,13) Notice: the latter prophecy is specifically mentioned in the context of end times events. While it may be shocking to see how radical Muslims feel they are doing God a service by killing Christian aid workers, this should not take us by surprise: Christ forewarned us of this.
