Iranian Christian DENIED asylum in Great Britain because they say Christianity is VIOLENT, and they cite Bible verses to make this claim!

This is truly bizarre.

Someone at the home office in Great Britain has denied an asylum request by an Iranian Christian on the basis that Christianity is a violent religion. And they cite Bible verses to make their case in the actual letter.

Here’s more from CBN News:

An Iranian Christian has been denied asylum in Great Britain, and the government agency used the Bible to argue against granting the request.

The man wrote in his request he had converted to Christianity because it is a peaceful faith.

However, the Independent reports Britain’s Home Office’s refusal letter cited passages from Revelation to say the Bible was “inconsistent” with his claim.

Even the man’s caseworker tweeted he’d never seen anything like this used to refuse asylum.

The refusal letter points to several biblical passages, including the End Times, saying, “These examples are inconsistent with your claim that you converted to Christianity after discovering it is a ‘peaceful’ religion, as opposed to Islam which contains violence, rage and revenge.”

I’ve pulled the two letter excerpts from the man’s twitter so you can see what passages they cite in their denial letter:

You know this is completely absurd. They cite passages in both Exodus and Leviticus from the Old Testament as well as New Testament passages from Matthew and Revelation. And they are all taken out of context.

With regard to the passage in Leviticus 27, God is simply promising that if the Israelites obey the covenant they made with Him and follow His statutes and commandments…“If you walk in my statutes and observe my commandments and do them”…then He will give them prosperity in the land and success against their enemies who try to conquer them.

In Exodus 34, God is simply trying to quarantine the Israelite people so that they can keep the covenant they made with Him at Mount Sinai. The Israelites had been in Egypt for over 400 years and during that time they worshiped many Egyptian gods. This is why they made a golden calf while at Mount Sinai, because that was one of the gods they worshiped in Egypt. God knows their penchant for this and therefore tells them to destroy the altars and gods made by the people of the land and not to make a treaty with them. If they don’t do this, they will fall right back into the worship of these foreign gods and break the covenant they made with the one true God. And as you know, that’s exactly what happened.

In Matthew 10 Jesus isn’t talking about an earthly sword, but a spiritual sword.

I could go on, but the point is that these passages were completely taken out of context by this moron in the British government. If I had to guess, they are probably listed on some anti-Christian website somewhere that accuses Christianity of being a violent religion.

It’s quite troubling that this would even happen to be honest. Sadly, I think it’s more evidence of where the world is headed in the great falling away of the last days, mentioned in the 2 Thessalonians 2.

  1. The great falling away is the CHURCH falling away, which we’ve already seen with emphasis being put on works — a Sinner’s Prayer or baptism — as a means to get to heaven, rather than faith alone in Christ alone as the Lord described to Nicodemus in the third chapter of the Book of John.

  2. I wonder if this government worker was a Muslim and my next question is has this worker called Islam a violent religion and has this government worker approved of asylum requests for Muslims? The Quran is certainly more violent than the Bible and there are more current acts documenting that fact.

    So is the church of England NOT a Christian church???????????

    This needs to be investigated further and this worker needs to be fired.

  3. The author of this letter knows that, despite their misapplication of those passages of Scriptures, they have no fear of Christians acting upon those violent passages, unlike those who adhere to the so-called religion of ‘piece’ (misspelling intentional).

    Now, let’s see if they will expend the same amount of energy and examine all the violent passages in the koran. Let’s see if this person has the stones to recommend the deportation all the muslims their country has imported, based on the exact same standard that they refuse asylum to this Christian.

    Yeah. We know that won’t happen. 😡

    Such intellectual dishonesty, cowardice and hypocrisy sickens me. I know as a Christian I should come to expect the wicked to be wicked but it still irks me.

  4. I bet they don’t bother to search the Koran and identify the stated violence muslims are required to commit against non-muslims in order to comply with 7th century A.D. ideological warfare edicts to “worship” the great satan – Allah.

  5. My guess: those verses are listed on a pro-Muslim anti-Christian web site to “prove” that Christianity is more violent than Islam.

    All evidence to the contrary.

  6. Something’s fishy here. Who is the person that wrote this? I don’t see any signature either. If this was an official document from the UK’s home office it would have a signature.
    All I see is just a letter that could have been written by anyone. Need more information.

  7. This is exactly why I’ve been saying that the crazy Liberals here in the US will eventually try to ban the Bible as hate content. SMH if only these people had a relationship with God and his word then they would know the truth, God is Love and merciful, and does not want to see even one soul suffer.

  8. When I debate atheists online, that’s the same argument they make–probably pulled right off of Richard Dawkins webpage. Conveniently, they ignore the hard fact that Atheist Communists are responsible for hundreds of millions of deaths in last century alone!

    The UK has completely turned Atheist–thanks to their High Priest, Darwin and the leftist media there. We are slowly following in their footsteps.

    1. Atheists like to distance themselves from Communism. They will say something to the effect that Communists worshiped their leaders, so it wasn’t athesism… or something. But Marx himself said “atheism is a preliminary requirement for it (Communism)”, and “Communism begins where atheism begins…”

      The fact is they couldn’t have killed millions without being atheists. Richard Wurmbrand put it best: ““The cruelty of atheism is hard to believe when man has no faith in the reward of good or the punishment of evil. There is no reason to be human. There is no restraint from the depths of evil which is in man. The Communist torturers often said, “There is no God, no hereafter, no punishment for evil. We can do what we wish.” I have heard one torturer even say, “I thank God, in whom I don’t believe, that I have lived to this hour when I can express all the evil in my heart.” He expressed it in unbelievable brutality and torture inflicted on prisoners.”

  9. I’m a big fan of Occam’s Razor, but this one smells like there’s something deeper going on here.

    I’d like to know when this guy supposedly converted.

  10. So…some insane bureaucrat over there has forgotten that Christianity served as the cultural foundation for the rise of the UK? Just wait till he/she reads the Koran!

  11. I’ve never been more excited to be 70. Thank you Jesus that I’m not long for this world because it’s going down hill much faster than I’ve seen in all my previous years. I’ll die before I take the mark of the beast. I thought I’d seen and heard it all but alas, not yet. GB needs to just roll over because they are toast. Can I type that?

  12. Funny that they have no problem allowing so many members of the,ahem, “Religion Of Peace” into their country! They’re a giant turd circling the proverbial toilet bowl!

  13. In a country overrun with Muzzies…and I’ll bet they don’t check out what the Koran says about infidels.

  14. Scoop, I think we’re seeing 2 Thess. coming about in the earth. Not only the “great falling away” but also, as I recently mentioned in a comment, the verse where God sends a strong delusion so they would believe a lie. I think it’s obvious Europe, as a whole, has lost it’s spiritual bearings and Britain, unless it’s stopped in it’s tracks, has gone over to the dark side.

    Hopefully, someone in our State Dept. sees this and offers asylum to this Iranian Christian. As of now our nation is still a haven for persecuted Christians. May we ever be.

    1. obama denied assylum to middle east Christians- hopefully trump will be all over this and take the person in- pronto- The world is beliving lies due to strong delusions- men claiming to be women, society demanding men be allowed in women’s bathrooms, gay marriage, 100’s of genders- ‘man-caused climate change’- EU calling Christians violent while allowing KNOWN violent middle east terrorists to pour across their borders, no questions asked- universal health care- free money for everyone- free tuition- many folks fallign for the lie of socialism- The world is welcoming it’s own downfall with open arms- I just shake my head in disbelief of all the nonsense/lies the world is falling for-

  15. “I think it’s more evidence of where the world is headed in the great falling away of the last days….”

    Yes, but it might also be evidence that “this moron in the British government” is a Muslim.

  16. Last night on Amazon Prime they showed the movie “The Siege of Vienna” It was about the Muslims trying to take over Europe in the sixteenth century. I couldn’t believe it was on as it showed the Muslims openly attempting to take over Europe and enslave the infidels. It was totally un-pc. Watch it if you can, very enlightening.

  17. GB bureaucrats should try reading the Koran sometime and then they would completely reverse their immigration policies. Europe as a whole is going to be destroyed by political correctness.

    1. What they call political ‘correctness’ is political ‘control.’ There isn’t a bureaucrat that will refuse a bribe to throw their people under the bus of the islamic destruction.

  18. They evidently go to great lengths to keep themselves from reading koranic passages as well as recent news reporting when considering to allowing muslims asylum and immigration.

  19. People wonder why I have such deep contempt for the British, and Europeans, in general. As they become less Christian, less moral and more subservient to Islam, the USA should pull further and further away from them, militarily and economically.

  20. I have always liked the UK, but it’s sad to see how far gone they are. I was hoping that Brexit had shown them how to grow a spine, but now they’re slipping faster to the Left than ever.

    1. They hate God because they are sinners. They hate Christians because they are sinners. It’s ironic though that they believe in satan.

      1. Well of course they believe in Satan. May not be an outward profession but it’s still a belief. He’s the father of the lies that they do love to believe in. Even if they tell you they don’t believe in Satan they lie because they are living proof of the belief in Satan’s lies. Whatever “ism” they may choose to call it if their belief centers around man as savior (god) then it’s a belief in Satan who gave that lie in Genesis 3.

  21. Whoever wrote that letter might want to take a moment to think about what they wrote, and that God WILL bring judgment upon iniquity. The Bible is clear on that point, from start to end.

    However, you are right Scoop, some of those passages are taken out of context and/or mis-interpreted. And the Gospel (the good news of Christ as our Savior and King) is the ONLY message of peace, mercy, and love for ALL mankind that any religion has EVER given. And all that is required of us is our 100% faith.

    1. @tom

      John 16:33, Jesus Christ says, “In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

  22. I am practically speechless over this. However if you aren’t Christian, aren’t interested in being Christian, and are looking to legitimize your position, this is how you do it. Let’s face it, Christians do this to each other over differences in interpretation of the Bible.
    One thing’s for sure, when attacking Christianity is supported world-wide, this world is in big trouble.

    1. Christianity has always been under assault, from its earliest moments. We are an existential threat to those who cling to their power over others.

  23. Yes warping / misinterpreting the Bible is bad. But why should everyone expect/demand to get asylum in other countries in the first place? For genocide or an ongoing holocaust of some kind, or targeting & execution based on religion ….asylum should be granted — but there is way too much asylum being passed out like candy right now, especially here in the US, where the dems and swamp have sinister motives.

    1. Iran is 9th on Open Doors’ World Watch List of countries where Christians are persecuted. It ranks as having “Extreme Persecution.” Your comment has little application to this article.

  24. England is a post-Christian culture and has been for decades. God’s grace has, for the most part, moved on and England will continue to decline just as the many “Christian nations” before her. All of the Middle East was once Christian and is now a haven for Islam. England was once Christian and has become a haven for secularism and Islam. The United States is moving in this direction at a frightening pace and will soon be the next former “Christian Nation” unless the LORD has mercy and brings about revival. This is the pattern of history, and it is the evidence of God’s grace and judgment for and against man.

    Another nation will be raised up as a “Christian Nation” in the course of the world. It may not have the same freedoms we enjoy, it may not be a Republic, or even a Democracy as these things are not necessary for a country to be “Christian.” But God’s grace shall not fail, and His purposes to bring every tribe and every tongue into his fold shall be accomplished. England was a tool to accomplish this goal, and has now been cast aside. America was/is a tool to accomplish this goal and is now in decline. Another country shall enjoy His grace, and then another, until His goal to bring every tribe and tongue to worship Him through Christ has been accomplished.

    Oh that revival would come so our children’s grandchildren may enjoy the benefits of His grace in Christ Jesus.

    1. What you say is true EXCEPT for the End Times. The question is are we a continuation of history or are we approaching the End Times? Jesus said his return will happen at a time that if He did not, there would be no one left to save.

      1. We are already in the End of Times. Scripture paints it as an overlapping of two times – the end of one and the beginning of another. How long these two times overlap is the question, but they have been overlapping for the last 2000 years since the time of Christ’s birth.

        And I agree with you that when He comes back He may find no faith on the earth, but that time will only happen after someone form every tribe and every tongue has come to a saving knowledge of Christ Jesus. The fulfillment of this event has yet to happen, but I pray it happens soon.

    2. There is a quote by Dinesh D’souza that has always stuck with me:

      “We may be seeing the beginning of a startling reversal. At one time Christian missionaries went to the far continents of Africa and Asia, where white priests in robes proclaimed the Bible to wide-eyed and uncomprehending brown and black people. In the future, we may well see black and brown missionaries proclaim the Bible to wide-eyed and uncomprehending white people in the West.”

      1. It’s already happening. The Catholic Church in the US is having such a hard time growing their own priests that we have to bring in priests from India and Africa to be able to meet the religious needs of US Catholics.

        1. Chinese churches and Korean churches are now sending missionaries to Americans, and church-planting missions to America. I’ve met some of them.

  25. And how many Christians have been enslaved and murdered by the Religion of Peace in the last year? We are living in the time where what is right is considered wrong and what is wrong is celebrated as being right.

    1. This is the key point. Islam is the religion of violence because of the Quran AND their actual present time religious violence. No other religion is so self-identified with violent acts as a core of its religious practice.

  26. Britain may be past the point of no return. I pity them for the hell they will be going through soon.

  27. This is astounding on so many levels. Not only the level of biblical illiteracy, but that Christianity is what shaped the Western world for nearly 2000 years. I doubt they would ever do this to a Muslim. Britain has lost its way, as has most of the Western world.

    1. This person doesn’t know the difference between the Old and New Testament. Christians, for instance, have never followed OT laws. There is a distinct difference between the two in how God deals with humanity. With the NT came an age of grace. In Revelation it’s not promoting violence, it’s telling what will happen. Good grief! And how “coincidental” they didn’t include any verses that disprove their point:

      “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. (Matt 5:38-40).

      1. Yup, the godless “enlightenment” philosophies of Rousseau, Marx, Voltaire, Nietzsche, etc. have supplanted Christianity, and the Western world is decaying because of it.

  28. Is this the work of the Secular Progressives or the Islamists? This is a serious question.

    This is one of the scariest stories I have seen in a long time, and that’s saying something.

  29. Watching what is happening in Britain is like watching a preview of coming attractions for the US if we don’t change things.

    1. @zombiewoof But the World will END in 12 YEARS if we don’t do all those crazy things about climate change!!!!

      :exclamation: :exclamation: :exclamation:

    2. I’ve heard about how Christians were brutally tortured in the Soviet Union. It’s scary to think that could happen here, but I know it could. Our country was founded by people trying to escape religious persecution. But the West has turned their back on Christianity, allowing Islam and Godless leftist philosophies to take its place. This won’t bode well for anyone.

  30. I’m surprised they didn’t hit him with the ole “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth” passage. That’s the excuse I always give the Judge. 😉

  31. Jesus once said “If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off”. Unlike Islam, there is not a Christian on the planet who takes that parable literally. We understand the context of the Bible. And that is why we don’t run around killing everyone who disagrees with us.

    1. If I thought that gouging out my eye, or cutting off my hand would truly change my the sinfulness in my heart, then I would be the first to follow this command literally. I do not need to see in order to lust or covet, and I do not need my hand in order to hate and murder. I can do it all from the sickness of my heart and not lift a finger or bat an eyebrow.

  32. Up is down, hot is cold, women are men, and Islam is the religion of peace while Christianity is the violent religion.

    This is the face of the modern day godless Left all over the globe.

  33. Unfortunately, those members of Britain’s government who took God’s Word out of context, will likely have all of eternity in Hell to lament the error of their ways.

    Using Christianity as a weapon… SMH
