Unfortunately the Zoroastrians do not accept converts, but I did meet one middle aged lady here in NY who left after the shah fell and she said many people in Iran are interested in Zoroastrianism becaue they feel it’s part of the Persian heritage....the whole New Year celebration Nowruz is very Zoroastrian.
I am sure Zoroastrians would want to get back their lost nation and lost children. Iran’s soul is still Zoroastrians.
In fact I believe this is the cry of their inner Zoroastrian soul that refuses to die at the hands of Islamic repression.
“Unfortunately the Zoroastrians do not accept converts”
I don’t know where you got your info from ? Your info is not quite accurate.
Some Orthodox Parsi Zoroastrians (Parsi = those original persians who migrated to India centuries ago) are against conversion. The same does not apply to less dogmatic Parsis or the Iranian-Zoroastrians.
In fact Muslim born Iranians converting to Zoroastrianism as well Christianity are on the rise in Iran, as well as around the globe. Only in Iran, because of death penalty for conversion out of Islam i.e. apostasy laws Islamic Republic regime, the Muslim borns who do convert, in Iran keep things under wraps.
Read this and the comments:
and about the Baha’i Faith
I hear that there is some form of Zoroastrianism (here in the US?) that does accept converts. They need to get together with the Zoroastrians in Iran, who don’t accept converts as part of their old accommodation with islam (and with Hinduism).
But best of all would be conversion to Christianity. I know Iranian-Americans who are Christians. But Iran needs a form of Christianity that is more indigenous to Iran, to avoid the dependence on the West that they so abhor.
That would be the Assyrian Orthodox Church (Church of the East) and/or the Armenian Orthodox Church, both of which have a long history in Iran. But these Christian groups in Iran are small, are ethnically-based, and have liturgical languages (Aramaic and Armenian, respectively) other than Persian/Farsi.
But the original Christian Church on the day of Pentecost had only around 120 members, all of who were Jews with Aramaic as their native language (Acts 1). And they evangelized the entire known world in just a few years!!!! With God, all things are possible.
As long as the rotten islamic Republic has the Iranian people under its iron boot, the chance of their hearing and responding to the Holy Gospel is next to zero. (muslim converts to Christianity are now routinely killed.) But if and when the islamic Republic is overthrown, many who have been ground down by the very worst form of islam and have become nominal muslims may be very receptive to the Gospel.
