Deny Jesus Christ... Or Die..

Deny Jesus Christ... Or Die..

That's pretty much the situation a Christian pastor is facing in Tehran.

In Iran the Christian pastor could be executed this week... unless he recants his faith in Jesus Christ. So far he's refused to recant his faith.

(He's in court facing charges of apostasy.)

"Yousef Nadarkhani, who leads a 400-person house church movement, refused in court on Sept. 25 and Sept. 26 to recant Christianity and was scheduled to get two more chances on Sept. 27 and Sept. 28, according to the British-based Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW), which monitors religious freedom."

I have been following this story closely and praying daily for Youcef.

The situation is very grim. If God does not intervene, he will be executed this week.

A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.

Don’t jump the gun, this won’t be tolerated in the U.S. at least not for 10-20 years.

I’d rather deny mohammad, shoot first and LIVE.

That won’t work for this guy, but we better take notice.

Hm, I dunno... There’s a *LOT* of blatently contra-constitutional stuff going on (BATFE & TSA for example) and then there’s the odd case where the feds are trying to toss out a law [in OK, I think] that prohibits Sharia Law (and foreign law) from being used in the State’s legal systems.

Prayers for him.

Note that they are saying that he must recant because his ancestors were Muslim.

That’s sharia law. If your father was a Muslim, then you are a Muslim, whether you’ve ever practiced it or not.

And if so, you are a Muslim if your grandfather or greatgrandfather was a Muslim, since it passes on down.

Which raises the significant point: that makes Obama a Muslim, at least three times over. Because his father was a Muslim. Because his stepfather was a Muslim. And because he was a practicing Muslim as a boy.

Unlike this pastor, there is no evidence that Obama ever left the Muslim faith. And although he is certainly prominent, oddly no one has ever issued a fatwah against him, as they certainly would have done if they had any reason to believe he had left the faith.

What say, Obama, are you concerned about this Christian pastor and the probability that he will be a martyr for the Christian faith? Any comments?

Re `devout’ Muslims:

They’re moral savages.

They’re cannibals.

They’re sons of b!tches. Every last kufi/turban wearing one of them.

Realize this, “infidels”, and govern yourselves accordingly.

Survival demands nothing less.

Yes, but even if Shariah law starts to be implemented in some communities, and they start being barbaric and enforcing their laws, Americans won’t stand for it. Not even the craziest left wing kook(maybe I’m exaggerating a bit here).

Prayers up for this man.

And my choice, without hesitation, would be death.

O Lord, hear our prayers for our brother in dire trouble, Yousef. When Joseph of old was put in the hands of the enemy, you delivered him according to your will and he was able to provide for his people in a time of great famine. You have called this Yousef and we ask to please deliver him from the hands of his enemies. I pray that you would raise him up to deliver the precious persian people in their time of spiritual famine. They need to hear the good news, liberty and salvation in Christ. Let the prison doors be opened. We pray the plans of the adversary are broken and come to nothing. There is power in your spirit and we call on you in the name of Jesus. Please hear our prayer. We trust You and You alone.

Jesus warned us of this day. Now it's happening for this man. Jesus tells us to REJOICE if this happens to us, for no greater commitment can be shown than to give one's life and refuse to deny one's faith.

You can write the Iranian ambassador at this link:
http://www.csw.org.uk/home.htm

You'll need to give your name, street address, town, postal code, and an email.

Supposedly today, Wednesday, was the last day the pastor would be given the opportunity to renounce his faith to avoid execution. [As of 4 p.m. EDT today (Wednesday), Tuesday's message on this British site has not been changed.] If he refused to denounce Christ earlier today, he can be executed at the court's whim.
