Persecution For The Name of Christ

The news broke in the last couple of days about a Christian in Afghanistan who faces execution for converting to Christianity. For more information you can look at Michelle Malkin's Site or check out Al Mohler's blog On section in the report that caught my attention was this one, "The judge, however, holds hopes for a solution. "We will ask him if he has changed his mind about being a Christian," Mawlazezadah says. "If he has, we will forgive him, because Islam is a religion of tolerance."" Emphasis mine. This quote shows something important about Islam and it's view of tolerance, and it is not something that should set our hearts at ease. Pray that God will work in this situation, so that he is glorified either in the release of one of his saints or if that is not his will, that he would use this to bring others to Christ.
