Coptic Bishop Tells ISIS Terrorists Who Slaughtered 100 Egyptian Christians, ‘You Are Loved by God’

Bishop Angaelos, who is the head of the Coptic Church in Britain, told the Islamic State terrorists who murdered over 100 Egyptian Christians over the last year that “you are loved by God, your Creator.”

“You are loved by God, your Creator for He created you in His image and according to His likeness, and placed you on this Earth for much greater things,” the bishop said, addressing the terrorists, while speaking to The Sunday Times.

“You are loved by me and by millions like me because I, and we, believe in transformation,” Angaelos, who recently hosted the Coptic Pope Tawadros II, added.

Angaelos explained that the Christian message was “to look at our world through the eyes of God.”

The bishop said he knows his message might not be fully embraced, but “it may create at least a shadow of doubt in the minds of those intent on inflicting harm and pain.”

At least 117 Coptic Christians have been murdered across Egypt since December, according to the Coptic Orthodox Church in Europe.
