I don't like double standards. I don't like favoritism. I don't like prejudice. I don't like bullying. For many different reasons, most of us, at one time or another, have been on the receiving end of some form of prejudice for our race, ethnicity, gender, age, size, appearance, intellect, education, accent, religious beliefs, or financial status. In today's Footsteps, Branko Bjelajac (TWR's Director of Global Partnership Delvelopment), tells us about the double standard that exists in Iran concerning religious freedom. A few Iranians are allowed to worship Christ, but most in Iran are not. But, here's the Good News--our Sovereign God is bigger than the "Secret Police" in Iran! And, when we read in Revelation 5:9 that Jesus is ransoming His Church "from every tribe and language and people and nation," that certainly includes the Persian-background people of Iran.
