Missionary Puts Faith and Life on the Line in North Korea

Robert Park, a 28-year-old Korean-American, crossed the border into North Korea from China on Christmas day, 2009. He brought a message to Kim Jong Il asking him to release the tens of thousands of political prisoners, many, if not most of whom are Christians, to shut down the concentration camps, and for the leader to step down from power.

The Dirty Little Secret of the NFL

NFL players are physically abused every time they step out on a football field to play the game. It's taken a toll on many that is higher than they ever imagined they'd pay. One such player is Dave Pear who, in an interview with Jeff Pearlman in a Sports Illustrated piece: said: "I wish I never played football. I wish that more than anything. Every single day, I want to take back those years of my life ..." Pearlman calls the former NFL Pro-Bowl star a "football-inflicted train wreck."

Adopt a Terrorist? For Prayer?

Adopt a terrorist for prayer? That is the proposition advanced by Dr. Thomas Bruce.

My first impulse was, I must confess, less than Christian. I have other ideas about how to treat a terrorist. My inclination is to pray the prayer that David prayed in Psalm 109.

But, I read the site. And, I was impressed. I could not get around some of the logic used, since it was straight from the pages of Scripture. I thought of Peter, who tried to cut off the head of a servant of a terrorist, but who abandoned his sword and his hatred, and would later would help shake a world for Christ.
