On March 30, the Helsinki District Court in Finland issued its decision to acquit both the Rev. Dr. Juhana Pohjola and Dr. Päivi Räsänen.
Rev. Pohjola wants to encourage the church to remain faithful and shared, “I hope that this encourages us and all others who share the same struggles to confess Christ Jesus and biblical teaching with joy and boldness. After all, it is His Word and He is responsible for it and for those who testify in His name. The Lord be with you all!”
