Randy Alcorn's Blog: persecuted church

Remembering Our Brothers and Sisters in Christ in North Korea

Asian girl praying"We Western Christians are tempted or deceived into confusing God with Mammon, and freedom of religion with freedom in Christ.

WireFor the ten years since I wrote Safely Home, I’ve been regularly asked, “Isn’t persecution of Chinese Christians a thing of the past?” Yes, there are some good developments, including more Christian books being printed in China.
