Following recent news that the Iranian Christian Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani held in a prison had been sentenanced to death, I decided to email the Iranian embassy politely in the UK to tell them how angry I was with this decision. Hes been offered leniency if he rejects Christianity and takes up Islam, which he has refused to do so.
A while back the UK embassy in Tehran was broken into and looted. I don’t know if there are many people in the UK office doing any administration. Sounds like a tough job trying to do PR for a company that flaunts the ability to destroy another neighbouring country by saying they will “wipe them off the map”.
I looked in the spam folder of my email and saw this today, their mail server rejected my email as their mailbox is full.
I wonder if this means that lots of Christians (or indeed anyone upset by this decision) have emailed the Islamic republic’s UK operations and overloaded their mail system. Or maybe their IT systems are just are rubbish as their human rights.
Of course, if this many people were praying for this man’s release and safety, without compromising his life with Jesus, you can’t pray too much, my loving God has infinite capacity for requests to him. I hope all Christians feel compelled to pray to see this innocent man’s wife and children get to see him come home safely.
