Apparently he is now being charged with rape

Sounds alot like an Iranian version of David Koresh, though the Iranians apparently didn't just go in shooting.

Is the only charge

being Christian? I happen to know Sandy Saunders and he is a nice man, but a very major evangelical. No offense , but you know how they can be. The link didn't provide much info about the case.
Sorry Sandy, but facts are very important when it comes to the touchy subject of Iran. We don't want to feed the blood lust of the many warmongers .. and yes even Christians warmongers in this country. Much care should be taken. There are more than just one or two lives at stake when you stir up more fear and hatred for Iran. People here don't even realize Ahmedinejad is not the one in charge there or understand how their system operates. More information and facts need to be provided , but prayers I will always gladly give.


I get email updates with Yousef Nadarkhani from Voices of the Martyrs, VOM is a legitimate group in bringing to light the persecuted Christians from around the world. VOM isn't a 'warmongering' group, they use the power of diplomacy and prayer.

I understand your skepticism with the intentions of this thread but being a Christian, a non-warmongering one, I took it as a call to inform others and to pray. The Iranians are wonderful people, it's the government that is evil. I do see what you mean since I googled how to spell his name and couldn't believe all the fox people doing write-ups on this fellow, so I get what you're saying get the Christians on board to go to war with Iran.

Praying for this man and his attorney.

And hoping we have the story correct and this is not used to strike Iran.

I do not trust the media...I do not trust any of the players in this current global circus...they will try ANYTHING to get their way.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

Thanks for bringing attention to this...

Let's also not forget about Asia Bibi in Pakistan too.

A very lucky man indeed...

And he knows it deep inside.

"The supreme court in Tehran last week announced its judgment on one: Mr Nadarkhani might save his life if he publicly renounced Christianity. This he has twice this week refused to do. A third refusal – due at any moment – might spell his death sentence."

Luke 9: 23-26

23 ¶ And He said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
24 For whosoever will save his life, shall lose it, and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.
25 For what advantageth it a man, if he win the whole world, and destroy himself, or lose himself?
26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me, and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his glory, and in the glory of the Father, and of the holy Angels.

This guy has refused to denounce Christ twice already, with only one more chance to go. If his faith is true and strong, then there is only one way to go. This will start happening more and more in the future. Those who are truly devoted will be separated from those who simply claim to be followers. Of course it will mean death to those of us who have true faith...but what good is a short human life when you believe in the eternity that God will provide?

I myself consider this man a very lucky testament for those who have true faith and love for Christ. I'm not in any hurry to leave this physical earth, but if given the choice to denounce my beliefs and live, or make my true testimony and stick to it, even if it means death...then I would choose death in a heartbeat. This physical life is very much meaningless in the grand scheme of things. I truly believe that at some time in the future the good ole guillotine will be back for us.

Revelations 20:4

And I saw seats, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them, and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which did not worship the beast, neither his image, neither had taken his mark upon their foreheads, or on their hands; and they lived, and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Thanks and AMEN!

There are martyrs today. Hope you email the Iranians
