Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Al Majdu laka yaa Rab'bul Majdu laka!

This is great news! I know that he had great goals of establishing churches in Iran but I hope he and his family leaves Iran as soon as possible for their own safety.

Praise God. God bless and protect Pastor Youssef, his family, & all Iranian Christians. Most Holy Theotokos pray for them that may be given the fullness of the faith for the glory of God. Glory to our Lord Jesus Christ.

Yes! Glory be to God. Let us now pray that he not end up like the other Iranian Christian martyr, Mehdi Dibaj, who died under mysterious circumstances shortly after being released from prison for blasphemy back in the 1990s. This may, unfortunately, involve leaving the country.

But still more Muslims come to Christ all the time in Iran (see the film "A Cry from Iran" about the indigenous church movement started by Muslim converts and Armenian-Iranians). They can exile people or kill them, but the truth of Christ our God lives forever, and cannot be imprisoned or extinguished.

Amen ! Glory be Our Glorious and Merciful God!

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
