Many governments persecute people of religious faith. However, one nation stands out: North Korea.
North Korea, officially the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, is a country in East Asia constituting the northern part of the Korean Peninsula.
In North Korea, the Constitution guarantees “freedom of religious beliefs”. However, in reality there is no freedom of religion in the country. According to one report at least 200,000 Christians have gone missing since 1953. Christians in North Korea are said to be the most persecuted in the world.
North Korea may be the worst place on earth for a Christian to stay because they punish anybody found. In fact, most Christians worship secretly to avoid punishment.
Being discovered as a Christian is a death sentence in North Korea. If you aren’t killed instantly, you will be taken to a labor camp as a political criminal. These inhumane prisons have horrific conditions, and few believers make it out alive.
