Ministry Uses Balloons to Reach North Korea with the Gospel

By editor

BalloonsNorth Korea (MNN/VOM)  North Korea is sick of balloons. These are not the kinds that you find at parties, but they’re the sturdy kinds, built for tracking weather and able to carry weight—and they’re used by Voice of the Martyrs to reach North Korea with the gospel.

VOM USA spokesman Todd Nettleton explains, “They clearly are delivering the gospel into North Korea. They clearly are doing it very effectively because otherwise, the North Koreans wouldn’t take this step of publicly criticizing them.”

Nettleton is referring to a statement released by North Korea’s state media (KCNA).

“They threatened all kinds of things. They’re going to ‘turn South Korea into a sea of fire’ if these things happen. I actually really think of it as a badge of honor for our partner ministry, our sister office in South Korea that handles these balloon launches.”

At the same time, North Korea has also been denying the effectiveness, but by issuing a statement, “Obviously, it’s working,” says Nettleton. “We’ve gotten their attention. We know from GPS tracking that the Bibles, the leaflets, the balloons are going into North Korea. We can tell quite a bit about the locations, and their release kind of confirmed some of what we already knew.” (continue reading here)

      North Korea is a sovereign state. We may not agree with what’s going on there, but it gives us (as Christians), no right to invade their air-space. Christ didn’t break any civil, or international laws. We should try to be Christ-like, and shun “badges of honor”.

          Sir, the end result is good, the word of God is a wonderful thing. But doing anything without permission is stealing. Christ didn’t steal.
