“Iranian Muslims are converting to Christianity at an unprecedented pace, perhaps by the thousands every day,” Dr. Michael Brown, host of the nationally syndicated Line of Fire radio program, said on Tuesday.
“I’ve heard this firsthand from Iranian converts,” Brown said. “I’ve heard it firsthand from Christian leaders who have worked with these converts inside and outside of Iran. And I’ve heard it from missiologists whose job it is to track such things.”
To be a Christian in Iran, however, means persecution.
“Churches and homes are raided, Bibles and other religious materials confiscated, and faith leaders bullied, arrested, and imprisoned,” Lela Gilbert of Newsmax said. “Ex-Muslims who have converted to Christianity face particular pressure. They are closely monitored, interrogated, spied upon and sometimes imprisoned on false charges.”
Dr. Brown believes we should pray for Iranian Christians, and also stand with Iranian protesters. “It could well be that there many secret converts among them. And we should applaud our government for letting Iran know that we are watching them carefully right now.”
“The people of Iran are finally acting against the brutal and corrupt Iranian regime,” President Trump said. “All of the money that President Obama so foolishly gave them went into terrorism and into their ‘pockets.’ The people have little food, big inflation and no human rights. The U.S. is watching!”
