Standoff Over Leaflets, Bibles Sent Into North Korea
A standoff over information leaflets and Bibles being sent by defectors and Christian groups into North Korea has flared up again.
The South Korean government has reportedly condemned the actions, while activist groups have vowed to continue the practice.
Seoul's Ministry of Unification said in published remarks that sending leaflets targeting North Koreaâ€™s autocratic leadership increases tensions and "poses a threat to the lives and safety of border area residents of the South."

Josh Smith, Joyce Lee wrote: The increase in arrests is likely driven by multiple factors, including deteriorating economic conditions in North Korea and Chinaâ€™s concern about the potential for a big influx of refugees, said Kim Seung-eun, a pastor at Seoulâ€™s Caleb Mission Church, which helps defectors escape.

Also an interesting is somewhat disjointed interview if a person has been to North Korea several times.
Dave Davies wrote: Journalist Anna Fifield visited North Korea and interviewed many of its citizens â€” including members of Kim Jong Un's family â€” for her new book about the country and its leader. ..... North Korea is founded on this opposition to the United States. United States is derided in the state media every single day....
But I also think it enables Kim Jong Un to say, you know, this is how powerful I am - that this American basketballer will travel all this way to see me and to play for me - you know, this very similar message to what he's able to present with the meetings with President Trump and the other world leaders. You know, he wants to be seen as somebody who is revered and respected in the outside world. So every time he meets with somebody like this, he's able to perpetuate that line....

The very best thing you can do for a Christian in North Korea is q get him out of there âť—âť—âť—đź‘Ť
It makes me joyful when I see other believers finding inventive ways of getting the gospel out to the people. This is true Holy Ghost religion, Great Commission style.
I wonder if they are connected to the Christian balloon ministry, which sends balloons filled with tracts over north Korea, releasing them steadily. Eternity will show how many souls were brought to Christ by this weird and wonderful method.
Any believer can have their part in the Great Commission, and every believer ought to. But this is where the clergy/laity system has sold a pup, and prevented ordinary people from playing their role in the salvation of souls and the building of God's kingdom in the hearts of men and women and children.
