Once again we welcome you to the FEA worship experience. May you be blessed you be richly blessed today.
The massive rise of Christianity in Iran, especially among young people, continues despite the Islamic government’s efforts to suppress it. Islamic leaders admitted that more and more young people are choosing to follow Jesus. According to Mohabat News, which reports on the persecution and state of Christianity in Iran, the “exponential rate” of Christian growth has been a factor for the last couple of decades. Even leading Islamic seminary officials have pointed to accurate reports which indicate that the young people in Iran are becoming Christians and attending house churches. They are greatly alarmed over it and are blaming foreign influence for the conversions. Ayatollahs have slammed government officials for their negligence in preparing counteracting strategies to stop the spread of Christianity.
Mohabat News pointed out that this high rate of conversions to Christianity among Iranian youth is taking place despite the rigorous Islamic indoctrination of the youth in their families and the educational system. They also reported that the Islamic government of Iran dedicates massive budgets to the support of Islamic organizations that promote Islam among the young people within and without Iran’s borders.
But it is clear that regardless of such efforts, Iranian youth are becoming increasingly distant from Islam. This is indeed a cause for grave concern for the Iranian Islamic government. The New York-based Center for Human Rights in Iran said in a report in July that Iranian authorities are increasingly cracking down on Christian converts in the country, arresting and imprisoning believers in an effort to suppress Christianity.
There is a strong belief among Church leaders, that millions can be added to the church in the next few years because of the spiritual hunger and disillusionment that exist within the Islamic world. Let us remember to pray for those who are coming to Christ in Iran that God would preserve and keep them in that difficult situation. Amen!
