We ask that you change your Facebook profile picture to his and that you “like” the “Free Saeed” Facebook page and participate in some of the activities that promote his cause.
We ask…that you remember him and his family in prayer…and that you refuse to give up on efforts to secure his release.
We will continue to do so until he is released.
The allegations of spousal abuse by his wife do not change the fact that Abedini is being unjustly held in a foreign prison for his faith.
The reactions to those allegations have followed the same course as is usual when dealing with well known Christians.
One group will deny the allegations are true and insist that the wicked media has created them from whole cloth.
Their heroes must be sinless and pure, modern day saints who have yet to be beatified.
Because they have done the beatification in their minds already, they will allow no information or evidence to taint their beatific vision.
These people are rank idolaters.
They will continue to support a fallen Christian, not for his sake, but for theirs.
Another group will discard the fallen one immediately.
They too demand that their heroes be sinless and pure, but they will do so because they believe they are practically holy and their leaders must be too.
These people are the modern day Pharisees who have removed any sort of spiritual mirror from their lives.
Both sides deny the faith once delivered.
Between these extremes there will be those who know the Gospel…who know that we are all sinners saved by grace and we remain sinners kept by grace until we get home.
We do not diminish the allegations against Saeed, we recognize that should the whole truth be told of any of us that truth would speak of our own sins and failures.
We do not negate the need for accountability for sin, we simply will wait until Abedini is free to hold him accountable.
We will never diminish or negate the impact of domestic abuse on its victims.
We are committed to pray for this family and to intercede for the freedom of a man in chains for his faith.
