Iran: Underground Churches

Achil, a blogger based in Tehran, was surprised to find a Bible in Persian in the mail box. The blogger says it seems there are more and more Moslem people who convert into Christianity in Iran (Persian). The blogger was informed by a Christian friend that Churches are afraid of being targeted by security forces and ask the new converts to go underground.

    It’s unfortunate that Moslem leaders don’t realize that lack of freedom works against them with the people.
    But then again, if the Xians were in power, it would not guarantee freedom either, unfortunately.

  • Hi! I think it’s neat to have a underground church. I know for a fact Jesus is coming soon and the people that harm his people will pay. If I can be any help please ask.

    He is Risen!
