Evidence For Christianity

Documenting The Overwhelming Evidence For The Christian Faith

Atheist Government Always Leads To Official Repression Of Christianity

In all of human history, where has liberty and freedom thrived the most?

Under governments that were established on Christian principles.

But right now the reality is that the western world is increasingly drifting towards atheism.

But that is a huge mistake. Just consider many of the examples from the 20th century.

Whenever a government went officially atheist, it almost always meant incredibly brutal repression for Christianity.

Examples include the U.S.S.R., China, Cuba, and almost all of eastern Europe during the Cold War.

Today a very clear example of this repression is in North Korea.

The government of North Korea HATES Christianity and does whatever it can to make sure it is stamped out.

In fact, the government of North Korea recently even sent a threatening fax to a Christian ministry called Voice of the Martyrs.

You see, Voice of the Martyrs has been sending gospel messages to as many fax-linked telephone numbers inside North Korea as they possibly can.

"We know who you are," an English translation of the North Korean fax says. "We warn you that if you send this kind of dirty fax again something very bad will happen to you. Don't do something you will regret."

Todd Nettleton, the director of media development for Voice of the Martyrs saw this fax as a good sign: "This means that (our) faxes are getting through, and they are being read. It is highly unlikely that this type of response would have been made from an embassy without some approval from Pyongyang."

So is this threat likely to intimidate the Voice of the Martyrs?

Not likely.

Voice of the Martyrs recently released a statement on this incident which said this:

"The Christian teaching is clear. Communists are men and Christ loves them. So does every man who has the mind of Christ. We love the sinner even though we hate the sin. We know about the love of Christ toward the Communists by our own love toward them. There are Christians in Communist prisons with fifty pounds of chains on their feet, tortured with redhot iron pokers, in whose throats spoonfuls of salt had been forced, being kept afterward without water, starving, whipped, suffering from cold – and praying with fervor for the Communists. This is humanly inexplicable! It is the love of Christ, which was poured out in our hearts."

It can't be any other way. Unless atheists take away our children, we'll continue to teach them about Jesus. Unless atheists send us to reeducation camps we'll continue to tell our neighbours about Jesus. Unless atheists take away our Bibles and shut down our presses, Bibles and Bible studies will continue to take place. Those who wish to stamp out Christianity can only attempt to do so through violent oppression. Any even then the gates of hell will not be able to stand against the building of Jesus' Church.

And christians wonder why young people are turning away from the church. Christianity used to be about helping those less fortunate and turning the other cheek. Now every christian news report shows us judging people. Take this for example. Atheism leads to North Korea. Wow, 'WWJD' really has lost all meaning. Perhaps the author would benefit from googling the crime, healthcare and education rates of Norway. I would sure like to read their article on that primarily Atheist nation.
