Today we live in a world that no longer believes in truth, but believes truth is pragmatic, or what one chooses to believe. In such a world stands Pastor Saeed Abedini. He is imprisoned in Iran for no crime, but for being a Christian. All he has to do to win his freedom is recant his belief in Jesus. If he recants he can go home to his wife Maghmeh and their two sons. Yet for two years he has stood for truth; Jesus is the Christ.
The world says, “It does not matter, just say the words and go home.” Pastor Saeed knows that it does matter, for there is too much at stake for him to lie. What is at stake you ask? The faith of his wife and children, the faith of the thirty men in the prison he has led to Christ, the faith of those praying for him, and the future Iran; a nation that lives in darkness.
Pastor Saeed does not have to recant to win his freedom for Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32).
Pray for Pastor Saeed Abedini,
