Death Sentence of Youcef Nadarkhani Upheld in Iran

3 Jul

We have learned that the conviction of brother YoucefNadarkhani for apostasy and his sentence of death has been upheld and confirmed by the Iranian Supreme Court. The typical way that the Iranian authorities act is that at any time they could carry out the death sentence without advance notice. First, they will ask him to recant and if he does not they will execute him. There is no more that can be done for him inside Iran. The only thing that can be done is to put pressure on Iran via the international community. I ask that you pray and follow what God is calling you to do. Contact your elected officials, use the principle of the importunate woman of Luke 18:1-8 who had the judge listen to her because she continued to trouble him.

Please help us work to fight against this conviction against our brother. We know that we are called to be faithful unto death and that many are killed for their faith everyday around the world, but as Christians lets do what we can for Youcef – pray for him and raise our voices against the Iranian regime.
