Christian Pastor Freed from Iranian Prison
According to the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), in 2009 Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani was sentenced to die in an Iranian prison for refusing to denounce his faith in Jesus Christ. But two days ago, the grace of God allowed him to go free.
The ACLJ had this to say “Today marks a day of celebration. After languishing in prison for almost three years, under the threat of execution for his faith, Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani has been released from prison and acquitted of his apostasy charge.
Pastor Youcef had been summoned to appear before the court this morning for the charges brought against him. His hearing lasted almost six hours. But in the end, he was released and able to return home to his family.”
