Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani has been condemned to death in Iran for converting from Islam to Christianity. There is a lot of uncertainty concerning his fate. Several journalists have reported that he could be executed at any moment. Other journalists say that his sentence has been commuted. Pastor Youcef is married and has two children.
My feeling is Pastor Youcef has been caught up in geopolitical politics. No Christian has been executed in Iran for conversion. I think he’s being used by the Iranian government to put pressure on the USA. I believe that Pastor Youcef will stay alive as long as he is useful.
Please pray for Youcef Nadarkhani and his family.
