South Korea turned off dozens of high-volume loudspeakers on Monday, putting a halt to the propaganda they normally broadcast over the border into North Korea. The move, a government spokesman said, was designed to set a peaceful tone ahead of the talks between the two Koreas Friday‚ÄĒa tone that was reinforced by the announcement that the countries had committed to work toward a peace agreement. The strikingly amicable inter-Korean summit will in turn set the tone for an upcoming U.S.-North Korea summit, during which President Trump and Kim Jong Un are expected to discuss denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. But while the South‚Äôs loudspeakers have stopped blaring reports critical of the North, forbidden messages are still flowing across the border‚ÄĒon the airwaves of a Christian radio station.

I have finally found a doctrinal statement from one of the FEBC's organizations.
FEBC wrote: Doctrinal Statement
‚ÄĘ The Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. ‚ÄĘ That there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. ‚ÄĘ In the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and that He will personally return in power and glory. ‚ÄĘ That for the salvation of lost and sinful men and women, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. ‚ÄĘ In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life. ‚ÄĘ In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved into the resurrection of life, and they that are lost into the resurrection of damnation. ‚ÄĘ In the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.

I was blessed to watch a You Tube video recently featuring North and South Korean Christians, with English text translation.
Though the South Korean church featured was broadly charismatic leaning, (though they certainly knew how to sing, including a very enthusiastic rendering of Handel's Hallelujah Chorus), it was lovely also to hear a North Korean refugee, who was in silhouette, give an appeal to her sister in North Korea, to come to the Lord Jesus, and another North Korean lady evangelist now in South Korea, who was shown fully, and who played the accordion, and sang with all her heart to the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ
Prayers by a blurred North Korean Christian actually there, were also shown and featured a blurred service in an illegal house meeting actually in North Korea.
It was a great privilege to see this and deeply moving, and made me wonder how I would react if I was in North Korea undergoing that persecution. It made me feel very unworthy indeed!!
I read a book recently called "without you, there is no us, by suki Kim." And was saddened by this secular account, and perspective because it had more truth than your "Jesus Freaks" book. Like expected, the missionary groups have zero accountability on what the people they send out believe. I just hope the locals don't rot in prison because of the false charismatic Christianity that the west introduces.
