Christianity Is GROWING In North Korea Despite Persecution, Defectors Says
North Korea is ranked as the most severely persecuted nation on Earth when it comes to Christians openly practicing their faith. Christian persecution charity open doors listed it at the very top of its 2017 World Watch List. However, despite such brutal oppression of Christians, the faith is flourishing, according to one defector.
Kim Chung-seong was able to escape North Jorea before his scheduled execution, according to The Christian Post. He is now in South Korea and actively involved in missions work. "The one thing that the North Korean regime fears the most, and is afraid of, is the spreading of the Gospel," he said while attending the first annual World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians in Washington, D.C. "Because the Bible and the Gospel speaks the truth. Once the light shines in the dark room, there is light in the room."
"They (the government) will do anything to prevent the spread of the Gospel in North Korea. [But] as you can see, we cannot block the sunlight with our hand," he continued.
