Cuban Pastor on House Arrest for Worshipping Too Loud

avatar

A pastor was sentenced to one year of house arrest by a Cuban civil court for hosting loud worship services.

Juan Carlos Nuñez leads a congregation of some 550 people, a risky job under Cuba’s communist government.

Morning Star News reports that Nuñez was tried and convicted of “disturbing the peace” before his lawyer had the opportunity to defend him.

With no legal defense, Nuñez stood little chance against a state committed to persecuting Christians. However, the pastor says he will appeal the sentence and continue to preach the gospel.

“Our mission is to preach the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, and we are suffering for that cause,” Nuñez told Morning Star. “We were treated as criminals and enemies of the government. We are children of God unjustly accused and convicted.”

Nuñez said problems like these could be solved if the government would simply allow Christians to build more churches to accommodate the growing number of believers in the communist state.

“The government will not issue us a building permit,” he said. “We could avoid this whole problem entirely if they would let us have our own meeting place.”

The government is very strict about issuing building permits to churches, forcing many Christians to attend house churches and host secret worship services.

But the persecution has not stopped Christians from worshipping and spreading the light of the gospel in darkness.

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military

Dr. Sonny Hernandez

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military is a field manual for US service members and military chaplains. This Gospel-Centered, polemical book exposes the homosexual agenda that adversely affects Religious Liberty for Christians. There are several homosexual activists that will demand equality and tolerance. However, homosexual activists are not so equal or tolerant towards anyone that disagrees with their position on same sex marriage or transgenderism. They will claim to love all, but they really do not mean all—they mean agenda. This is because the homosexual agenda has a definition for inclusivity—their way or the highway.
