The house church pastor had been arrested and tortured by the Iranian police.
Now he wanted to talk to his leader. Dr. Hormoz Shariat, the leader, expected the pastor—only 22 years old—to ask how a loving God could have allowed him to suffer so much. The pastor would ask, and how would Dr. Hormoz answer?
Instead of complaining or questioning God, the young man called being tortured for his faith in Christ an honor.
It is bold witnesses for Christ like this that God is using to change the nation of Iran. Listen in this week to hear Pastor Hormoz share the stories of these faithful believers and explain how persecution in Iran is different from what Christians in other Muslim nations are facing.
Encourage your faith and equip yourself to pray for the church in Iran with this week’s episode of VOM Radio.
