Cuban Pastor on House Arrest for Worshipping Too Loud


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.

Muslim Invasion: The Fuse Is Burning

Dr. Don Boys

Muslin Invasion: The Fuse is Burning! is an interesting, informative, and for the politically correct and infuriating read. Islam, Muslims, immigration, Jihad, Sharia, and the war against our civilization, culture, and creed is a present reality. Gutless public officials are selling us short either by complicity with the enemy or due to a doctrinaire commitment to idiotic tolerance ideology. Whatever the case, citizens must stand up against the invasion now before it is to late. The author suggests that the fuse is burning and the results will end in a complete upheaval of America and every free nation, unless we act now. Forget the lame stream media. Forget Obama. Common sense mandates, our very survival demands that we act NOW to keep America from going off the cliff; This book promises to be a life changing read.
