A provocative new poster is reaching out to evangelical Christians by co-opting the Islamic State flag.
The St Columba Uniting Church in Sydney is one of a number of churches displaying the poster supplied by Outreach Media.
The company’s gospel-focused posters are described as a “great tool for evangelism” and “designed to engage with the community and spark conversations”.
November’s poster is inspired by the terrorist flag and features a quote from Jesus: “Love your Enemies, and pray for those who persecute you”.
The church’s minister did not want to comment on the poster, but a description on the Outreach website said: “Jesus actually requires us to get worked up over the ISIS soldier. He commands us to find love in our hearts and pray for that soldier and really mean it. Remember, Jesus loved his enemies enough to die for them at the cross”…
