Sudanese Woman Sentenced to Death for her Faith posted by John Sorensen on May 15, 2014
According to an article in USA TODAY, on Thursday, May 15, a court sentenced a pregnant, Christian Sudanese woman to death by hanging after she refused to renounce her faith.
Meriam Ibrahim, 27, was convicted on charges of “apostasy” for abandoning the Islam faith. The court also ordered Ibrahim to receive 100 lashes for “adultery” due to her marriage to a Christian man, which is considered void under sharia law.
Ibrahim’s lawyer said that the verdict will be appealed within 15 days.
Please pray fervently that this decision will be overturned. And thank God for the freedom we have to share our faith in Christ in the U.S.
