Why is ISIS Successful?

Violent Muslims have been very successful despite the fact that their message is so terrible. How would you like to join a company with a product that leads to  destruction, death, and world hatred?

"Not so much," you say?

ISIS uses the small group model of Jesus to spread bad news while Jesus said to spread the Good News!

 Since we have good news we might assume that our groups would grow much faster than people with the bad news!

Here is a suggestion for understanding the model of Jesus. It shows why it is so successful. I wonder why so many leaders reject it.

You can learn the model by reading the book, The Starfish and the Spider. I do not agree with the purposes of some of the groups mentioned in the book but the author describes the model in an interesting way.
