World Outrage Over Woman In Iran Condemned To Death By Stoning

A woman in Iran who  was originally condemned to death by stoning on alleged charges of adultery has captured the attention of the world and protest rallies are planned worldwide today to condemn Iran and its barbaric torturous execution method, and to call for the release of the woman.   The death sentence of stoning  has been put on hold because of international outrage, and the woman, who has remained in prison for five years, may still be executed by hanging or whatever other barbaric means the
Islamic government of Iran chooses to use.

The woman’s attorney has reported that she confessed to the crime of adultery under the duress of 99 lashes, but later recanted her confession, and has denied wrong doing.

While the judiciary chief halted the execution of Ashtiani, the verdict still stands and Ashtiani could be executed at any time without notice. See complete story here.

Please pray that the Lord will intervene and that Ashtiani will be completely acquitted and set free.

The barbaric practice of stoning is condemned by God, and anyone who partakes in this evil  and leads others to do the same will receive his judgment from God.

In Matthew 7:1, Jesus also  reminds us “judge not, that ye be not be judged.

Then further on down in this very same passage, in verse 5, Jesus elaborates more on this subject of judging others, and says, "Thou hypocrit, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye."

Clearly, Jesus is speaking of hypocritical judging here, and not righteous judgment.  Jesus' use of "hypocrit" in this verse is "hupokrites" {hoop-ok-ree-tace'} meaning an actor, stage player, a dissembler, pretender, according to Strong’s concordance, precisely an accurate description of these Iranian judges, mullahs and religious police, who constantly  point out alleged sins of others, forcing the masses in Iran to live under a fascist and oppresive regime,  while thinking themselves to be above sin.
From G5271; an actor under an assumed character (stage player), that is, (figuratively) a dissembler (“hypocrite”): - hypocrite.
