FoxNews: The lawyer of an Iranian pastor sentenced to death for refusing to renounce his Christian faith is hopeful an appeals court will acquit his client.
Attorney Mohammad Ali Dadkhah says he believes in a “95 percent chance” of acquittal for 32-year-old Yusuf Naderkhani.
Dadkhah told The Associated Press on Thursday that he has appeared before the appeals court over the past four days and expects a ruling by the end of next week.
He says neither Iranian law nor clerics have ever stipulated the death penalty as punishment for converting from Islam to Christianity.
Comment by Wickus:
This is very sad but also a reality that will be with Christians worldwide real soon. Please pray for this Pastor and his family. Please pray for the body of Christ who is currently under persecution worldwide, but does not make the news.
And please pray for the western Church who thinks that they are so special that they will be raptured away before the same persecution befalls them.
Thanks to all of you who has send me mail about this.
