When the Coptic Christians were beheaded by ISIS terrorists last year, at first we were told there were twenty-one of them. However there were only twenty. One was an African from Chad, who was not a Christian. As all the men knelt on the beach and were given a chance to renounce their faith in Christ and to confess Muhammed as the last great prophet of Allah, each of the Coptic believers refused. When the time came for the African from Chad to respond, after hearing of the faith of these Christian men, who refused to deny their Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, he said, ‘Their God is my God.’ And so he died with them, a Christian for only seconds, but one who, nonetheless, was faithful until death.
