Scripture tells us that we are heirs with Christ if we suffer with him so that we may also be glorified with him. But few of us can say we have truly suffered persecution for Christ the way believers in scripture did. Pastor Saeed Abedini is one of those few and his story is compelling. Join host Jerrad Lopes as he talks with Pastor Saeed about coming to Christ, his four-year imprisonment in Iran for sharing his faith and the controversies that have arisen since his release. If you followed Pastor Saeed's story in the media, this episode is your chance to hear his firsthand account and learn the story behind the headlines.
Host: Jerrad Lopes
Guest: Saeed Abedini, an Iranian American Christian pastor who was imprisoned in Iran for threatening “national security” for being a Christian and for sharing his faith with Muslims.
