Ep. 2.3 - Stories from Iran
In Iran, Christians are being arbitrarily detained, arrested, tortured, and sentenced to lengthy prison terms. Converts from Islam to Christianity are specifically targeted by the regime and labeled a national security threat. Yet, in spite of all this, the underground church in Iran is growing rapidly and people continue to turn to the Christian faith. FRC recently hosted Maryam Rostampour, Marziyeh Amirizadeh, and Dabrina Bet Tamraz, three Christian victims of religious persecution from Iran, who shared their stories. After their testimonies, Arielle Del Turco, Research Assistant for FRC's Center for Religious Liberty joins Lecture Me! to give further analysis of Iran's pattern of persecution and what believers in the U.S. can do to help support the persecuted.
