Martyrdom precedes persecution, not the other way around

We must learn how the Bible tells stories of persecution and make sure our modern accounts reflect biblical theology. Unfortunately, these days many accounts of Christian persecution are told like news stories designed to advance the narrative that Christians are increasingly in danger and in need of the prayers of other Christians and the protection …

New Temptations for North Korean Christians

I recently did an interview with VOM Radio. The folks at Church in Chains  transcribed part of it. Much of this information I haven’t previously shared.

The True Sinicization of John Ross and the Counterfeit Sinicization of the Chinese Communist Party
