Iran: Presidential Election Raises Concerns for Christians

Will the persecution of Christians intensify in Iran following the election of hardliner Ebrahim Raisi as the Islamic Republic’s new president? The 2021 election was described by various news sources as being fraudulent because many reformers and moderates were barred from standing for election. Dr. Hormoz Shariat of Iran Alive Ministries joins Greg Musselman to discuss the implications of Iran’s new presidential leadership, and what it could mean for the followers of Jesus in that country. Dr. Hormoz also addresses the amazing growth of the church in the Islamic Republic and the persecution of Christians.
