TEHRAN, IRAN (Worthy News)-- A believer with a Muslim Background (BMB) died in Iran after being severely beaten by a relative, according to Christian Human rights group.

According to Middle East Concern, he left behind a wife and two young children.  Due to security concerns to the surviving family, the man's name was not able to be released.

A number of Christians continue to be held in jail in Iran for their faith in Jesus Christ. According to Farsi Christian News Network, three of 15 believers arrested near Mashhad on July 8th of this year are still in detention. They are under pressure to renounce their faith in Jesus Christ, but have refused to do so.

In the city of Ahvaz, another believer, the assistant pastor of a fellowship, remains detained after having been arrested during a raid on his home July 24th. His wife and daughter were also arrested and detained, but were released shortly after.

According to a report on Iranian State television in early September, nine Christians were arrested in the town of Hamedan on charges of evangelism. Any religion other than Islam is forbidden in Iran.

  1. I'm wondering this kind of religion who claimed that their God is a loving God, yet all their followers are willing to kill and to destroy other faith because of their belief?
    Here in the Philippines, I observed, Muslims are treated well when they immigrate into a Christian Community... but when a Christian will go to a Muslim community they are treated like pigs.
    Hope and pray that this Muslim Iranian government must realize that in the sight of God we are all equal... but I doubt, I had a Muslim friend and according to him... if you are not a Muslim, you are not a child of God...... well that's his belief....
    May God bless these Iranian Christians to continue to stand in their faith.... that a True God, is a Loving God... we are all equal in His sight....

    May God, Bless Iran

  2. Father God given us His beloved son ...because of His LOVE He declared to His loved once that they should not perish...When we are sure have HIM one hundred % in our heart, Dut;6:5 ... never lack but they stand still rest in father will manifest like sun and its races. Amen.....

  3. Heavenly Father, how long will this agonizing persecution go on for? My heart is breaking, my faith in you attacked, yet still, I trust you, Heavenly Father, for your ways are not our ways, and your timing is not our timing. We want everything now, or yesterday. You, Heavenly Father, look at things from an eternal viewpoint. Heavenly Father, I ask that you would have great mercy and compassion on the families and friends of those being punished, even unto death, for their faith in Jesus Christ. I ask, dear Lord, that you would continue to send encouragement to those still alive to not be swayed from their faith in you and allegiance to you. May their enemies be humbled and scattered, yet may souls be witnessed to and saved, and may Almighty God be glorified. In Jesus' name-AMEN.
