Afghan man to die for his Christian Faith



Have you heard about Abdul Rahman? He's a 41-year-old Afghan man who may be sentenced to die because sixteen years ago he rejected Islam, a capital crime in Afghanistan, in order to accept Christianity.

Now (doubtless under international pressure), they are saying he may not be executed because he surely must be insane. But, as a friend of mine pointed out, look at his face . . . and then look at the faces of the men behind him. Who looks psychologically healthy?

You can read the entire story here.

Let's remember to pray for this brother . . . and thank God for the countries which allow their people the freedom to worship as they please.

This whole story is just chilling. It can be so easy as a believer to fall into complacency here in the US, and then to read about this man's story and realize he is being tried and we share the SAME FAITH...it's been a powerful wake-up call.

The example he sets for the world is so powerful.
