Iran: Imprisoned Christian Pastor To Be Hanged If Court Concludes He Converted From Islam to Christianity


Hebrews 13:3, “Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.”

Sahih Bukhari 52:260, “… The Prophet [Mohammed] said, ‘If somebody discards his [Islamic] religion, kill him.” (Hadith)

John 16:2b, “… the time is coming when those who kill you will think they are doing a holy service for God.”

By Charlie Butts – “A pastor in Iran has another court hearing scheduled for Sunday. He is under a death sentence for converting to Christianity.

Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani remains behind bars in Rasht awaiting what is called a re-examination. He claims he never really practiced the Islamic faith. Jason DeMars of Present Truth Ministries tells OneNewsNow what can be expected at the hearing.

‘They will be determining whether he was a Muslim between the ages of 15 and 19 — after the age of accountability — and then 19 when he became a Christian,’ he explains. ‘Then they will forward their results on to the Branch 27 of the Supreme Court, which will have the final decision on whether he is executed or not.’

DeMars says there are several ways the court can look at it according to the Shiite faith. He takes a look at the likely argument the government prosecutor will take.

‘He did not practice Islam his entire life,’ DeMars points out, ‘but they may simply look at it and say he was born into a Muslim home, he knew about Islam his whole life, and therefore we determine that by these definitions he was a Muslim and he should recant it.’

If Nadarkhani is determined to be a Muslim, the finding will be sent to the Supreme Court for a final determination — a process that could take up to six months. DeMars is convinced the only thing that will save the pastor from the hangman’s noose is prayer.” Source.
