The Iranian church has been in the midst of a revival in the last 5 years. However, the Ahmadinejad administration has been persecuting Christians lately and the entire community was hoping that the recent vote would bring a new President in Iran and greater freedom. Now that doesn’t seem to be the case regardless of how the vote actually turned out.
The Christians are among those in Iran who do not believe that the recent election results were fairly counted and it is said that some of the younger folk actually participated in some of the street rallies and protests.
Now the Iranian Christians may be in danger of being one of the groups that are singled out and targeted as scapegoats by Pres. Ahmadinejad. We really do need to pray for the Christians that this political upheaval will not bring even greater persecution for their community. *Top
