A jaw-dropping report is confirming that in recent years, there have been a million new Christians in the repressive regime of Iran, which is owned, managed and operated by Islamic extremists.

The details come from Lela Gilbert, a senior fellow at the Family Research Council and a fellow at Hudson’ Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom.

She has written at the Washington Stand that most, when “Iran” appears in the headlines, remember the regime’s “relentless efforts to develop a nuclear weapon, while their government-sponsored mobs chant, ‘Death to America!’ and ‘Death to Israel!'”

Others might recall its “relentless military aggression in the Middle East and assassination squads elsewhere.”

For years, she noted, it has been listed as one of the 10 worst persecutors of Christians around the globe.

The other story, however, is that the number of those converting to Christianity is Iran is exploding.

“I first became aware of this surprisingly good news when I lived in Israel — it was talked about among groups who were focused on Middle East evangelism. Then after I returned to the U.S., I read an unexpected report by Daniel Pipes, a Jewish researcher and author and friend of mine who wrote about it for Newsweek,” she explained.

He cited the “astonishing” turn of events that have Christianity “flourishing.”

He wrote, “Consider some testimonials: David Yeghnazar of Elam Ministries stated in 2018 that ‘Iranians have become the most open people to the gospel.’ The Christian Broadcasting Network found, also in 2018, that ‘Christianity is growing faster in the Islamic Republic of Iran than in any other country.’

“This trend results from the extreme form of Shi’ite Islam imposed by the theocratic regime. An Iranian church leader explained in 2019: ‘What if I told you the mosques are empty inside Iran? What if I told you no one follows Islam inside of Iran? …What if I told you the best evangelist for Jesus was the Ayatollah Khomeini [founder of the Islamic Republic]?'”

The report said the change is being confirmed by a survey in 2020 from a secular Netherlands-based research organization that confirmed “there are far greater numbers of Christian believers in Iran than ever before — more than a million. In fact, those involved with the ‘house church’ movement in Iran are convinced that there are likely several million Christian believers there,” she wrote.

The growth mostly is through one-to-one conversations among house church attendees, who largely remain under the radar of the repressive government.

This just as various groups, including the Vatican and several Protestant groups, are reporting that Iran’s war against Christians is surging, with surveillance, arrests, and imprisonment of house church leaders.

She said, “Today, when we see ‘Iran’ in the headlines, we are wise to be concerned. … Let’s also remember our little-known but rapidly growing Christian family inside Iran’s borders.”

IMPORTANT NOTE: “Election denier!” “Science denier!” “Climate-change denier!” “Conspiracy theorist!” And then there’s “hate speech,” “fake news,” “disinformation,” “misinformation,” even something called “MALinformation.” A bizarre new lexicon has been conjured up by America’s elites, the SOLE PURPOSE of which is to discredit and ridicule – and if at all possible, CENSOR ENTIRELY – speech that doesn’t support their increasingly dark and deranged agenda. Tucker Carlson is just the latest.

In the greatest imaginable irony, the nation once boasting the most robust culture of freedom of speech and the press – undergirded by the strongest constitutional protections for those rights – is now ground zero for a total war on free expression.

How could this possibly happen in the United States of America? It’s all explained as never before in the sensational new issue of WND’s critically acclaimed WHISTLEBLOWER magazine, titled “THE ELITES’ ALL-OUT WAR ON FREE SPEECH.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
