Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani faces imminent execution in Iran

The Christian Post reports that 34 year old Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani who has been under death sentence for refusing to renounce his Christian faith was under court examination this week after the Iran Supreme Court upheld his death sentence of September 2010. Pastor Nadarkhani has been jailed since 2009.

The Christian Post reports that „On Wednesday, Nadarkhani refused for the fourth time in open court to renounce his Christian faith. That’s one opportunity more than required under Iranian law to execute the pastor for apostasy. In a letter Nadarkhani wrote last June from Iran’s Lakin Prison, he affirmed his determination to stay true to his Christian faith even to his death.”

Pastor Nadarkhani obviously is standing on God’s word- Luke 12:4

“I tell you, my friends, do not fear those who kill the body, and after that have nothing more that they can do.

He should make us consider carefully how much we trust Christ and how much we reflect this in the way we live our life each and every day.

May the Lord be with him! And may he shake us all out of our selfishness and complacency.
