Yusef Nadarkhani, an evangelical pastor and the father of two, has been sentenced to death for converting from Islam, and the Iranian Supreme Court in its wisdom has upheld the decision. In a deeply barbaric proviso reflective of medieval wars of religion at their worst, the court states that Pastor Nadarkhani’s life will be spared if he recants his conversion and returns to the merciful and humane form of Islam so vigilantly upheld by the pious and enlightened mullahs of Iran. Otherwise, if an investigation confirms that he was at one point a Muslim, he will hang by the neck until dead.
Persecution of Christians is real.
The Church is watered by the blood of the martyrs.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, have mercy.
