North Korean Christian Imprisoned for Her Faith Tells of Torture, Beatings in Prison

breaking world news north korea

(Worthy News) - A North Korean Christian, identified only as “Prisoner 42” for security reasons, told Christian persecution watchdog Open Doors the torture and beatings she endured for her faith and how God stayed with her through the brutality.

She became a Christian after fleeing to China in the midst of North Korea’s great famine during the 1990s. She was however captured there and sent to a North Korean prison camp, where she was put in solitary confinement for a year.

With her head shaved, she faced repetitive harsh questioning from the guards: “Why were you in China? Who did you meet? Did you go to church? Did you have a Bible? Did you meet any South Koreans? Are you a Christian?” [ Source: International Christian Concern (Read More...) ]

  1. She denied her Christ! Never! There is nothing to glory in here. Of course, if she had repented of that, if she had remained silent in the face of demands to deny Christ...even Christ was silent after his arrest...but God Almighty forbid that any of us love this life so much that we deny God's own Son.

    There is no honor to a woman who excuses her denying Jesus, the Messiah. Don't just read this little excerpt, read the whole article. She admits to the same thing Peter did (and rightly was ashamed of doing).
