North Korea's decades-long attempt to eliminate Christianity has practically erased any knowledge of Jesus for citizens, attendees were told Thursday (July 18) at a Capitol Hill event sponsored by the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission.
The ERLC hosted the meeting on religious liberty under the dictatorial regime at a U.S. Senate office building as a side event on the third and final day of the State Department's second Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom. "Humanity Denied: Religious Freedom in North Korea" included a panel discussion, an interview with an escapee from North Korea and the premiere of a documentary film of the same name.
Kenneth Bae -- imprisoned by North Korea longer than any other American citizen -- told the audience he has met hundreds of people who have fled that country since he began his work with refugees in South Korea after his release in 2014....
Our sovereign Jesus Christ has not been erased from anything. He is in control of all of this. He is not worried. He is not "losing sleep". He is not wringing His hands, worried that is being pushed out. Our Lord Jesus is supreme and controls even the rottenness we see in this world. Nothing is outside of His control. Nothing.
O Lord, meriful and true, please expand greatly Your Gospel throughout North Korea, and the rest of the world as well. Please uphold Your people there, who hide their faith and grant them Your peace which passeth all understanding. In Jesus name, Amen.
