Imam Khamenei’s message to Christians and Muslims, on the anniversary of Christ’s birth
If Christ were among us today, he would not spare even a single moment to fight the leaders of despotism and global arrogance; nor would he tolerate hunger and wandering of millions of people, degenerated by the hegemonic and colonialist powers into war, corruption, and violence.
-message to Christians and Muslims, on the anniversary of Christ’s birth (December 27 1991)
Jesus Christ, the Son of Mary, was a herald of God’s grace, blessing, and guidance for man; in a world sunken into darkness and polytheism and sullied by the sin and aberrance, he was a guide leading all humanity to God; a purity of mercy purging the hearts and souls; he was a minister of a heavenly justice to call all oppressed on earth for emancipation from the thralldom of bullying despots; he was a God’s select to lead the strayed and awe-stricken to His conscious worship.
