Hi Javad. Thanks for your message. I’m happy you contacted me and that you’re interested in Christianity. The teachings of Jesus Christ have brought me a lot of peace. I’m a member of a Christian Church called The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, also known as “the Mormons.” This religion has been a great blessing in my life.

It’s hard for me to imagine what it would be like to live in a country where freedom of religion is limited. It’s important that people be free to carefully consider and choose their own spiritual path. My heart goes out to you, brother.

I can’t in good conscience encourage you to formally convert to Christianity given that it could literally cost you your life. Perhaps in the future you’ll find yourself in a country with greater religious freedom, or perhaps Iran itself will one day grant its citizens greater liberty.

In the mean time, you can continue to study Christianity in private, and, if you’re interested, Mormon Christianity in particular. It’s possible to adopt some Christian principles in your heart without formally converting to Christianity.

Here are some links that could perhaps help you:

I know you’re frustrated with Islam because your government uses it as a tool of oppression. I’d probably be frustrated with Christianity if I lived under a fundamentalist, Christianist-inspired dictatorship, so that’s understandable. But Islam in its purest form does teach many beautiful principles, and it certainly does produce many good people.

I think it will be quite possible for you to cultivate a love for many true Christian principles (charity, forgiveness, etc.) within an Islamic context. Then perhaps in the future you’ll be able to add even more knowledge to what you already have by actively participating in the Christian (and perhaps even Mormon Christian) community. I pray for the day when you’ll have that freedom, brother!
