Please Remember our Brethren in N. Korea

Posted by Job on May 28, 2009

From PJ Miller.
The underground Christian body in North Korea has launched a prayer campaign for evangelization in the country in response to the government’s recent missile testing and threat to attack its southern counterpart, South Korea.

Church leaders in the country say the situation is extremely unstable inside and urge North Korean Christians to become more united during this difficult time, according to Open Doors sources.

Not only is the country supposedly restarting its nuclear weapons program and threatening war against its neighbor, but North Korean authorities have reportedly intensified tactics to expose underground church members.

“Christians in North Korea are suffering terribly for their faith,” said Open Doors USA president/CEO Carl Moeller. “Of the estimated 200,000 in political prison camps, an estimated 40,000 to 60,000 are Christians.”

He added, “Now with the firing of several missiles and the on-going war footing, the scrutiny of believers has increased.”

“We thank God there are so many people who are praying for our country,” said a pastor inside North Korea to Open Doors. “Your prayers strengthen the Christians in North Korea.”

Fundamentalist Christians If They Treat You Like Omar Khadr One Day Will You Renounce The Faith?

Posted by Job on July 16, 2008

Please read the story below. And do not pretend that America and the world is not slowly becoming a place where what is done to this Canadian teenager will not be done to Christians. As a matter of fact, in some places in the world, Christians get this treatment – and worse – already! Keep Christians that are enduring nightmares like this in mind whenever you hear the seductive doctrines of a prosperity/Word of Faith Christian, or a Christian who correlates piety and godliness with western wealth and power. Jesus Christ is coming back one day to overthrow this Babylon one day, true, but before that day happens, many sorrows are yet to come to pass! That is why I ask of and challenge you today with the question: are you ready?

The Unending Torture of Omar Khadr

Incidentally, the godless communists came up with these tactics that our government is using:

Posted by Job on February 3, 2008

Location:China
Arrested: July 2007

Print Fact Sheet

In July 2007, 42-year-old Li Mei and nine house church leaders were arrested, when they were discovered having a Sunday worship service. They were charged with singing Christian hymns to villagers, showing the JESUS film in a nursing home and praying for healing for a disabled elderly man. The nine were sentenced to re-education through labor for 12 to 18 months. Li Mei served part of her one-year sentence in a hospital with both hands chained to her bed. Repeated beatings and torture caused her to require a hysterectomy. She is currently serving the remainder of her sentence at home under house arrest.

The Great Debaters: Never Trust Oprah Winfrey!

Posted by Job on December 25, 2007

Let me preface this by saying that I have nothing against Denzel Washington or Forest Whitaker, having no evidence that either has willfully set himself against Jesus Christ and His work. Oprah Winfrey, however, is another matter.

Did you know that Denzel Washington’s wife drops by Trinity Broadcasting Network’s “Praise The Lord” show for an appearance every now and then? Recall that when Denzel Washington said “God is great, God is good” in his Oscar acceptance speech that honored his playing an adulterous drug dealing murdering corrupt police officer so depraved that he was willing to exchange the life of his son for his own.

Remember the Denzel Washinton – Whitney Houston film of a few years back “The Preacher’s Wife”, a remake of “The Bishop’s Wife”? Over two hours long without a single mention of Jesus Christ (not surprising since it was directed by liberal Jew Penny Marsall of Laverne and Shirley) and had nothing whatsoever to do with Christianity in any fashion, unless your image of Christianity is an angel of God lusting after a married woman (who herself was more than willing to commit adultery with him if given the opportunity) and the ridiculous notion that it is perfectly fine for a minister’s wife and choir director of a church to sing in nightclubs (without bothering to evangelize anyone while there). Oh, but all was not lost … the movie DID take great pains to make a powerful brave spiritual moral stand against the great evil posed to mankind’s fallen nature by … smoking tobacco. Hollywood. You have to love it!

Anyway, I was already predisposed to oppose “The Great Debaters” because of its marketing campaign. The movie opens on Christmas Day, has a black gospel choir singing in the background, and the voice – over goes “come see a movie about the triumph of the human spirit.” Excellent way of using Christian traditions and elements to promote a movie that has nothing to do with Jesus Christ.

Still, I decided that it would be worthwhile to track the reviews of this film and see how they deal with the subject matter. That led me to Rupert Murdoch’s racist trash sheet the New York Post (speaking of Rupert Murdoch trash, Fox News had an hourlong “Christmas with Rick Warren” special on the other day), who tends to praise worthy black projects and people as some sort of superficial cover to the fact that they regularly bait the passions of the very sort of racists that kept late – term abortion supporting fascist (and leading Republican presidential contender) Rudy Giuliani in power for eight years to inflict the sort of brutal terror tactics on poor black neighborhoods that would have never been tolerated for five minutes in, say, the upscale party districts known for their wild parties where the cocaine and ecstasy flow freely.

This is what the New York Post has to say about the central character played by Denzel Washington in Oprah Winfrey’s “triumph of the human spirit“:

The vaguely roguish Melvin Tolson, who is very possibly a Communist, is also trying to organize migrant farm workers into a union. It’s this activity – which gets short shrift in an overlong movie – that’s actually more interesting than the rather dry debating sequences.

Tolson’s organizing gets him thrown into cracker sheriff John Heard’s jail at one point, and the atheist scholar is freed through a demonstration organized by soft-spoken but powerful theologian James B. Farmer Sr., played by Forest Whitaker in his best performance in many years.

So we have now reached the point where we open movies celebrating God – hating atheist communists on Christmas Day. So now you see precisely what “human spirit” the commercial of this movie was speaking of while the black gospel choir was providing the background accompaniment. Whatever this “human spirit” might be, it certainly is not the Holy Spirit, and as such those who go after it and deal with it can keep it to themselves.

As to whether one should go see this movie, which if the information that I have read about it can be trusted seems to have legitimate entertainment value and contains useful information (such as the black college debate team in 1935 Texas encountering a lynching on the way to a competition) I will leave that to people more qualified than myself (starting with those that have actually seen the movie) to judge and comment on.
