I saw this article today from The Washington Stand (part of the Family Research Council) and wanted to share it with you.
It tells the story of what God is doing in the hearts of the people of Iran.
“Some of us immediately reflect on the Islamic Republic of Iran’s relentless efforts to develop a nuclear weapon, while their government-sponsored mobs chant, “Death to America!” and “Death to Israel!” For others, it’s Iran’s relentless military aggression in the Middle East and assassination squads elsewhere. Meanwhile, those of us who focus on international religious freedom recall that year after year, Iran is listed as one of the 10 worst persecutors of Christians in the world.
But there is another story that isn’t widely reported in our American media. Amazingly, there’s an explosive number of conversions to Christianity taking place in Iran.“
According to the article, Iranians have become “the most open people to the gospel,” and “Christianity is growing faster in the Islamic Republic of Iran than in any other country.”
