World Watch Monitor | Oct. 2, 2018

Two Iranian Christians have been given prison sentences for “spreading propaganda against the regime”, reports Middle East Concern.

Saheb Fadaei and Fatimeh Bakhteri, who belong to the non-Trinitarian “Church of Iran”, were sentenced to 18 and 12 months, respectively.

Middle East Concern noted that in the verdict it was written that “for Christians to claim that Jesus is Lord and that the Bible is their final authority can be perceived as an attack against Islam”.
