Renounce Christianity or die

Globally, we are back to the early Church.

A court in Sudan has sentenced a pregnant woman to death by hanging for refusing to renounce her Christian faith.

Twenty-seven-year-old Mariam Yahya Ibrahim, who is already the mother of a 20-month-old son, was convicted of apostasy on Sunday and given four days to abandon her faith.

On Thursday, Judge Abbas al-Khalifa handed down the death sentence in Khartoum after Ibrahim told the court, “I am a Christian.”

Ibrahim was born to a Christian mother and a Muslim father. She was brought up as Christian after the father left the family. Under Sudanese law, children of Muslim fathers are considered Muslim.

The judge also sentenced Ibrahim to 100 lashes on charges of adultery. Under Sudanese law, marriage between Muslims and non-Muslims is not permitted, and any such union is considered adultery.

Ibrahim’s husband, Daniel Wani, is a Christian.
