There are a lot of evil nations in the world today, but it is fairly easy to make a case that North Korea is the worst of them all. Some of the things that you are about to read about in this article are absolutely horrifying. In fact, if you have a weak stomach you might not want to read this article at all.
In North Korea, public executions, rape and torture are all just part of the lifestyle. In fact, according to the Daily Mail there were “between 40 to 80 public mass executions in North Korea in 2013.” Some of the things that got people publicly executed in North Korea during 2013 included “watching unsanctioned South Korean TV shows and being found in possession of a Bible“. And as you will read about below, other Christians have had it even worse than that in the past. In one instance, little children were hanged in front of their parents, and then their parents were crushed to death with a steamroller. So no, I am not exaggerating when I describe North Korea as an “evil nation”.
The new “leader” of North Korea, Kim Jong Un, even executed his ex-girlfriend and his own uncle. And he publicly executed a whole bunch of people for “inappropriate mourning” after the death of his father Kim Jong Il.
In case you are curious, you can find video of “appropriate mourning” right here.
Now, we have learned that North Korea is about to execute 33 more people for working with a South Korea Baptist missionary…
Thirty-three North Koreans face execution after being charged with attempting to overthrow the repressive regime of Kim Jong-un.
The Koreans have landed themselves in hot water after it emerged they had worked with South Korean Baptist missionary Kim Jung-wook and received money to set up 500 underground churches. It is understood they will be put to death in a cell at the State Security Department.
So why aren’t Barack Obama and the U.S. State Department screaming bloody murder about this?
If those 33 individuals were from one of Obama’s “favored groups”, it would be headline news.
But whenever Christians are in trouble, the Obama administration seems to be eerily quiet.
Please pray for those dear brothers and sisters. They are going to need it.
Of course not all Christians are put to death in North Korea. Much more commonly, they are sent to gulags for the rest of their lives where they are beaten, tortured and raped before they finally die…
He revealed detainees were forced to dig their own graves and were then killed with hammer blows to their necks.
The former guard said he also witnessed prison officers strangling detainees and then beating them to death with wooden sticks.
Prison officials frequently raped women inmates who were then killed, he said.
“After a night of ‘servicing’ the officials, the women had to die because the secret could not get out. This happens at most of the political prison camps,” he told Amnesty.
You can view some incredible drawings of what goes on inside the gulags of North Korea that were actually drawn by a survivor of those camps right here.
You see, the truth is that only one “religion” is permitted in North Korea. Most people don’t realize this, but North Koreans must worship their “eternal president” Kim Il Sung every single day…
“The best wall on every house in North Korea must have well-cared-for photos of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il,” explains Seoul USA CEO Eric Foley. “At every meal, families look up at the picture and pray, ‘Thank you, Father Kim Il Sung, for this food.’”
While most Americans view the hermit kingdom as an atheist nation, Foley says in reality it is perhaps the most religious nation on earth because 100 percent of its citizens are required to worship Kim Il Sung. North Korea is the world’s only “necrocacy”—ruled forever by its deceased eternal president.
Isn’t that sick?
If you try to fight the system, it could cost you everything.
Would you be willing to risk everything to stand up for what you believe?
As I mentioned above, some of those that have dared to worship the God that created all things have had to watch their own children hanged right in front of their eyes. The following story originally comes from the Voice of the Martyrs…
The young brown-eyed girl looked up at her mother. What would she decide?
Earlier that morning, the young girl’s mother, their pastor, and twenty-six others in her North Korean village of GokSan were bound and taken before a screaming crowd of Communists.
One of the guards ordered Pastor Kim and the other Christians, “Deny Christ, or you will die.” The words chilled her. How could they ask her to deny Jesus? She knew in her heart he was real. They all quietly refused.
Then the Communist guard shouted directly at the adult Christians, “Deny Christ, or we will hang your children.” The young girl looked up at her mother. She gripped her and knowing how much her mom loved her. her mother then leaned down. With confidence and peace she whispered, “Today, my love, I will see you in heaven.”
All of the children were hanged.
The remaining believers were then brought out onto the pavement and forced to lie down in front of a huge steamroller. The Communists gave them one last chance. “Deny this Jesus or you will be crushed.” The Christians had already given up their children; there was no turning back.
As the driver started the heavy piece of equipment, the singing from the villagers started softly. “More love, O Christ, to thee, more love to thee.”
Yes, North Korea is truly an evil nation.
You can watch an absolutely incredible National Geographic documentary about what life is like inside North Korea on YouTube right here. If you have never seen this particular documentary before, it is definitely worth the time that it takes to watch it.
Sadly, life in the United States is slowly but surely becoming a little bit more like life in North Korea with each passing day.
If you think that things could never get quite so bad here, you should be made aware that the North Korean constitution also guarantees freedom of speech and freedom of the press just like our constitution does.
Of course we are not like North Korea yet, but we are on the path there. It is way too easy to allow our liberties and our freedoms to slip away from us, and once they are gone they will be nearly impossible to get back.
