An Iranian actress who left Islam for Christianity has twice been denied asylum in Sweden and could be sent back to Iran where the penalty for conversion includes death.
Aideen Strandsson told CBN News she secretly converted to Christianity while still living in Iran.
“I read the Bible and I understood what Jesus said about peace, about love, about kindness, and in my heart I became a Christian when I was in Iran,” she said in an interview with CBN’s Dale Hurd.
Three years ago, she moved to Sweden and publicly proclaimed her new faith, but her application for asylum has been denied by government officials and an immigration court.
“They felt that, they don’t believe I am in danger and I think that’s the reason,” she said….. read more
A former imam from Egypt with strong family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood leadership who converted to Christianity, said Friday that some Muslims in the U.S. are using “Islamic deception” to fool Christians into believing misconceptions about the religion.
Mark Christian, who became a Sunni imam at the young age of 13 because his great uncle was a co-founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, detailed during a webinar hosted by the American Pastors Network how he began to question Islam around the age of 23, and eventually left the religion. He explained that he lived “dead inside” for a period of six or seven years before the “truth” ultimately led him on a journey to Christ that took over 10 to 15 years.
“If I look back at my life, I see that Jesus was at every corner trying to get me in, and many times I listened and many, many times, I ran away,” Christian said. “But God lured me in and I became a follower of Jesus Christ, and my story is really in the process of being put in a book.”… [read more]

Three Iranian Christian converts have been charged with “acting against national security” and illegal consumption of alcohol during Holy Communion. (Non-Muslims are permitted to drink alcohol in Iran, but leaving Islam is forbidden, so any such conversions are not recognised.)
Yasser Mossayebzadeh, Saheb Fadaie and Mohammad Reza Omidi – all from Muslim backgrounds – were charged at a court hearing in the northern city of Rasht on 10 September. If found guilty, they are likely to be flogged. In 2012, Omidi was one of four Christians given 80 lashes after being convicted of the same charge…. [read more]

Indian authorities in Madhya Pradesh state have arrested and jailed 12 individuals, charging them with having converted to Christianity in violation of laws forbidding religious conversions.
The 12, who included a blind couple—Balu Saste and his wife Bhuri—with their 3-year-old child, were arrested on January 14 in Dahar village and sent to jail the following day. On Jan. 17, seven of the prisoners were subsequently released on bail while the others continue to serve their sentences.
Police Chief Inspector Umesh Chandra Tiwari said that Saste was “already accused in another three-year-old conversion case.”
“We did not know why we were arrested and sent to jail,” said another of the group, 35-year-old Janu Bai, after being released from prison. [READ MORE]
LHWM Notes: If you read news in America you can clearly see they are pushing this here. They want to control and tell you your every move to make (like Obamacare, Immunizations on Children, Homosexuality, and the list goes on) . Right now we can freely go to church, but what is happening in India and everywhere else is quickly coming to America. Beware what you ask for!
