A North Korean woman who was forced to work in a prison camp where she started a secret Christian church and won converts for the faith despite immense persecution, has revealed that people living under the regime are taught that Christians kill people and drink their blood.
“Christians were not capable of ‘revolutionary acts’ and so were enemies,” explained Hae Woo about how she was taught to hate Christians prior to her conversion.
“Every form of religion, and especially Christianity, was like opium: addictive and destructive. I heard stories about Christians who went to hospitals, enticed people into cellars, killed them there and sucked the blood out of their bodies so that they could sell it. The thought of it was horrifying to me,” she said, as reported by the National Catholic Register.
Christianity is illegal in North Korea, which is identified by watchdog groups, such as Open Doors, as the world’s worst persecutor of Christians, with those who display their faith publicly sent to prison camps.
