Voice of the Martyrs Sends Bibles Into North Korea
The Korean office for Voice of the Martyrs announced at a press conference earlier this week that the Christian missionary organization will be sending Bibles into the southern part of North Korea.

"In North Korea, even children are aware of the risks of possessing a Bible. Even socks, clothes or food are dangerous. People who pick up a Bible know their choice is very risky, they could probably end up being executed," said the Rev. Eric Foley, CEO of VOM Korea to NK News, explaining the dangers of owning a Bible in the Communist state.

VOM will be sending the Bibles, translated into a North Korean dialect, via balloons, a means by which the group has used in the past.

One difference this year is unlike past balloon distributions, VOM has a computer app to track where the Bibles will land in North Korea. ...

Interesting Organization(s) I see there are various Voice of Martyrs groups in various countries including the U.S.A. They are loosely connected and perhaps should be checked out as an organization to give aid to groups who identify themselves as Christians. The American group have even given aid to the Yazidis, though they concentrate aid to those groups that identify themselves as Christian. The American group has a website at [URL=http://www.persecution.com/]]]The Voice o Martyrs[/URL] Since there are folks who check out SermonAudio, who are in Korea and England check out your own VOMs

We had an interesting speaker at my church from this organization this morning. Passing out Bibles and food for example strikes me as a good thing.

The South Korean government sends something other then Bibles across the border. [URL=http://mobile.abc.net.au/news/2015-08-21/north-and-south-korea-on-war-footing-after/6716622?section=sport]]]North and South Korea on war footing after exchange of artillery fire [/URL] .

This segment of the ABC News also has a transcript so you can use that. also the Australian news it's quite good with its video, and even earlier tablet devices like those that use Froyo can get the MP4 type video

It should be noted that the expert that is on the program was a former citizen of Russia. I wonder if that might affect his impartiality on the topic of North Korea?

I can't say, I think too much of the positive spin that the BBC, well, somewhat tries to put on this relationship, [URL=http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-pacific-33740261]]]North Korea and Christianity - uneasy bedfellows[/URL].

Christians are instructed to,

Matthew 28
18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
19 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,
20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."---[URL=http://www.lockman.org/nasb/nasbcmp.php]]]NASB[/URL]

North Korea, is trying to stop this

Gasper, I would suggest that you see the video. It is a PBS video, which means nothing about Christianity is mentioned, now launching balloons is shown but by who one doesn't know. It does give you an idea of the life in North Korea, and how stuff is smuggled into the country. Computer Bible programs would be a very good thing to smuggle in on CDs and thumb-drives.

There have already been missionaries thrown into jail in North Korea, life is like in the book, 1984, so it really doesn't matter if this action gets publicity in the Koreas. It probably gets more publicity there than it does here.

Knowing the risks, why would anyone genuinely concerned for the souls of the North Koreans, want it to be made known; that bibles were being placed into the hands of "prisoners"?

Imagine what's going to happen in the future if this gets publicity there as it is here. If people become imprisoned just for getting food from an outside source, what in the ...
do you think will happen if the Bible is known to be in their hands.

If any man boasts, let him boast in the Lord.

This is an encouraging blessing for the underground church in North Korea. In all truthfulness, the North Korean government has become such a prison to their own people is because they were not victorious at the end of the Korean conflict and because their family cult leadership has destroyed the economy and sustainablity of the prison based country. This why the gospel is such good news to those who are persecuted. Jesus loves the people of North Korea and his spirit will free their souls in faith that Jesus is their true savior.

I agree, John. Not unlike those in China, etc, there are many who crave a bible to learn and fill in all the missing blanks. I think that for many, having a bible would have the same effect as being able to send a missionary in to witness. The bible itself will be their witness. I think most would reject it, but if the words reach even just one...

Mark 16:15-16 KJV
(15) And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
(16) He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

The gospel is good news, very good news, extremely good news. In fact there is no news better than the tremendous news that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, and has done all things needful to save sinners from their sins: from the consequences of sin, the power of sin, and one day even from the very presence of sin. "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved..."

And if a country refuses access to preachers, that they might freely preach this most excellent news, the church must needs find a way to send in printed missionaries to reach the people in obedience to the great commission. The scriptures alone are capable of bringing people to a saving experience of God, when the Holy Ghost illumines their mind as they read, and brings them spiritual life, opening their eyes, unstopping their ears, and giving a new heart and spirit.

Will it do any good? The land called the U.S. is permeated with Bibles, any flavor you want, and more to come. Yet very few are believers. Lots of lip and little heart.
