Iran seizes thousands of Bibles in bid to stop conversions to Christianity


From Barnabas Fund

Iranian authorities have seized 6,500 Bibles in their latest efforts to block the spread of the Gospel in the strongly Islamic country.
Announcing the seizure, which took place between Zanjan and Abhar in the north-west of Iran, a parliamentary advisor said that Christian missionaries were trying to deceive people, especially Iranian youth. He added:
They have begun a huge campaign by spending huge sums and false propaganda for deviating the public.
The important point in this issue that should be considered by intelligence, judicial and religious agencies is that all religions are strengthening their power to confront Islam, otherwise what does this huge number of Bibles mean?
Last November, police officers and revolutionary guards seized 300 Bibles from a bus before setting the books on fire.
