2 Martyred Christians Told Islamists 'Christ Is Their Savior'
Two Christians who were murdered for their faith by Islamic radicals in Kenya apparently told the terrorists that "Christ is their savior" and that they cannot betray their faith.

(Php 1:20)¬† According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.

(Rev 12:11)¬† And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
