(Worthy News) - A North Korean who escaped from the country and now lives in the UK has spoken via persecution charity Open Doors about his life under the regime there.
Against the backdrop of the much-heralded summit meeting between US president Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, John Choi (not his real name) said: 'I grew up believing Christians were evil and dangerous. We watched the government's propaganda alongside public executions. It told us that Christians wanted to kidnap children and that the cross was evil.
'The first time I saw a man being executed it was because he had smuggled Christian things into the country and enticed people into the church. The whole village was told to come and watch, the children were allowed to sit at the front to get a good view. It enforced that belief that Christians were dangerous.'
