Christian Roots in North Korea

Some surprising lines of friendship and Christian ties lay at the heart of Kim Jong-Un’s family.

North Korea is #1 on the list of countries that persecute Christians (the only country in the top 10 that is not Muslim), but one of America’s best known evangelical families is intimately involved with the hermit kingdom.

First, some history.

Centuries of fear of China turned North Korea to request protection from the Soviet Union, yet after the end of the Cold War, the Russian Federation could not continue to subsidize them.  NK then turned to the US, but was rebuffed because the Clinton Administration had been paid off by China.

Chinagate, more than any other scandal, should have led to the impeachment, and removal, of Bill Clinton from office. At least six individuals were believed to have been used by the Chinese to influence the 1996 elections. Despite the fact that the illegal donations were returned, Janet Reno was criticized for never appointing an independent prosecutor for the Chinagate scandal.

After the Arduous March drought (1994-1998), the leader of North Korea realized the need to engage the West.

Supreme Leader Kim Il-sung, also in the aftermath of the Cold War ending, sent his most favored grandson Kim Jong-un to Switzerland to be educated in the Liebefeld-Steinholzi School…

The major sponsor of this school was the Lausanne Movement, founded in 1974 by evangelist Billy Graham.

If not for these “Deep State” aligned leftist media prostitutes in the US continually lying… the American people would know how truly historic and monumental this Trump-Kim Summit was—and whose near mystical origins began in 1933, when a young 13-year-old American girl named Ruth Bellwas sent by her Presbyterian missionary parents to a boarding school in Pyongyang, that is now the capital of North Korea—and that was run by an elder in the Presbyterian Churchwhose grandson was Kim Il-sung—who became the first Supreme Leader of North Korea from its establishment in 1948 until his death in 1994.

Graham’s son, the Reverend Franklin Graham, commented in a CBN interview this week:

The North Koreans have been wanting to talk to the Americans for a long time and this is the first administration that they’ve been able to talk to directly like this.  The North Koreans just want to be shown respect and other administrations brushed them off like they were nothing.

President Trump has stated that religious and humanitarian issues are important,  in addition to the de-nuclearization of the Penninsula.

Open Doors CEO David Curry called on all of us to pray for those persecuted in North Korea:

America and its allies—indeed the entire world—must not shy away from our moral mandate to call Kim Jong Un to task for his litany of human rights abuses—especially his imprisonment, torture and execution of Christians whose only crime was to dare to express any beliefs other than those approved by the Communist regime…
