Most Dangerous Place to Follow Jesus


North Korea: The Hardest Place To Follow Jesus.
This has been the most dangerous country to be a Christian for 17 years. North Koreans are forced to worship the Kim dynasty, and nothing else. Anyone with links to Christianity is arrested, tortured and even killed. Despite this, the underground church is growing, with an estimated 300,000 Christians in North Korea.

  1. I liked that he shared that the woman he was talking about had intuition about her husband and that she discerned after the fact that her mother had been a believer.

    That government is a Christian cult. The founder was evangelised — and obviously was perverse in understanding (or even real interest).

    The people who see through it have so much interest in truth that nothing will stop them and the truth gets through.

    This is a link, and it may seem off-topic, but it gives some context; it says something about what embassies can mean too.

    The Smallness of Trump’s North Korea Diplomacy

  2. One of Trump’s spiritual advisers has said he had a dream and went up to heaven to see Trump at the right hand of god.

    The apparent president of my country has made “jokes” about an officer in NK probably being more than fired and about his people standing at enthusiastic attention.

    Here is more about some high profile deaths.

    ……

    MPs were told Mr Hyon was killed on 30 April by anti-aircraft fire in front of an audience of hundreds, the Yonhap news agency reports.

    It said Mr Hyon had fallen asleep during an event attended by Kim Jong-un and had not carried out instructions.

    South Korea said a senior military officer was also killed.

    The news comes weeks after the reported execution of 15 senior officials.

    ……

    Of the seven pallbearers at former leader Kim Jong-il’s 2011 funeral, apart from Kim Jong-un, all have either been executed, have lost their jobs or have not been seen in some time

    ……

    Kim Jong-un’s uncle, Chang Song-thaek, is the most high profile official to have been executed under his rule

    ……

    Mr Kim has conducted a series of purges of close officials since becoming North Korea’s leader.

    The most notable was his uncle, Chang Song-thaek – once the country’s second-most powerful figure.

    ……

    {A brother was also murdered, but wasn’t an official.}

  3. Wow. Remember that first pastor who left the president’s evangelical advisory council? A.R. Bernard, pastor of the Christian Cultural Center (megachurch) in Brooklyn New York just said at 1:52 eastern time that one of the reasons, besides theology, that he converted from Islam was the Christian moral ethic — the social ethic and respect for dignity and human life and biblical hermeneutics and peacemaking — behind Christianity. He said we “seem to be getting away from that but calling ourselves christan.” He said there is a demoralization “happening in the halls of power.” But he went on; he cant follow someone who is not only immoral but amoral (and primarily or only transactional). So he disagreed with the recent “use” of Romans 13 for cruelty in America.

  4. One of Trump’s spiritual advisers has said he had a dream and went up to heaven to see Trump at the right hand of god.

    And I suspect most of us had assumed that Psalm 110 (and other related references) were referring to Jesus.

    The Lord said to my Lord,
    “Sit at My right hand,
    Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.”

    That “spiritual adviser” seems to know better.

  5. I looked this up last month:

    Exodus 21:16 “Anyone who kidnaps someone is to be put to death, whether the victim has been sold or is still in the kidnapper’s possession.
