(Worthy News) - Christianity is spreading in North Korea as more North Koreans are rejecting the regime of Kim Jung-un and searching for faith a defector told The Telegraph.

"Officially sanctioned persecution of people for religious reasons is still there and, I would say, even stronger than before", the defector told The Telegraph.

But subtle changes are slowly becoming visible, said the defector, who declined to be named as he is active in assisting underground churches operating in the North.

"In some places, that has led to the emergence of shamens, but the Christian church is also growing and deepening its roots there", he said.

"Even though people know they could be sent to prison - or worse - they are still choosing to worship, and that means that more cracks are appearing in the regime and the system", he added. [ Source (Read More...) ]

Hebrews 13:3  Remember those who are in bonds, as bound with them; and those who are ill-treated, since you are also in the body.

Revelation 6:9-11  And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?  And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

  1. It would help if the writer refrained from using "churches" to designate groups of worshiping Christians. Right now, as it's written, they could be anything. He might be speaking of groups worshiping Mary, the mother of Jesus (Y'shua) or saints or true followers of God's own Word come in the flesh.

  2. The "church age" is over. Please find new terms to help us pray for them who truly are our brethren "in Christ," in Messiah. Christianity and "the church" are not synonymous. That is one of the greatest disservices the western world had done to it's own.

  3. The Church- Bride of Christ. Jesus will build His church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it. Jesus also prayed for unity in the Spirit of God. Mindful of division- a tool of the devil.
    Build up on another in the most Holy faith ( in Christ)
