Reformed. Christianity. Evangelism. Modern Culture.
The first time I heard of Pastor Nadakhani I was struck by his courage in the face of aversity. The Iranian authorities have barely been under any international pressure, so they have decided to enjoy their mind games by stepping things up a notch…
[Pastor Nadarkhani] who refuses to renounce his Christian faith could be hanged as soon as Wednesday, after a trial court ruling this week upheld his death sentence for “apostasy.”
Religious freedom advocates are calling urgently for governments to take up the case of Youcef Nadarkhani, a 32-year-old evangelical first sentenced to death late last year. If the sentence is carried out he will be the first Iranian Christian known to have been executed for his faith in 21 years.
Well it may be too late since today is Wednesday and no body really feels like playing ball with Tehran over a mere Christian pastor.
May be some one from the religion of peace will grant him unmerited favor and (maybe) display mercy and grace. May be?
