ICC Note

“We’re calling on Christians to spread the word about the growing persecution of Christians in Iran – especially Muslims seeking to change their faith. Please get this video out across the entire web. Help us put pressure on Iran to drop its plans to impose the death penalty on Muslims who change their faith.”

10/06/2008 Iran (Christian Today)-Release International has launched a viral video to help Christians in Iran , where converts from Islam may soon face the death penalty.

The video’s launch follows the vote in the Iranian parliament overwhelmingly in favour of executing citizens found guilty of apostasy, or changing their faith.

“We’re calling on Christians to spread the word about the growing persecution of Christians in Iran – especially Muslims seeking to change their faith. Please get this video out across the entire web. Help us put pressure on Iran to drop its plans to impose the death penalty on Muslims who change their faith.”

Iranian Christians are calling for prayer that God’s presence will sustain the Christians who are behind bars, that legislators will reject moves to impose the death penalty for apostasy, and that Iranian officials behind the arrests will hear the Gospel and respond to Jesus.
