(World Watch Monitor) Pakistan has ordered a South Korean man to leave the country, accusing him of involvement in “illegal preaching activities” after two of his students at an Urdu-language school were abducted and killed by the Islamic State group, which claimed they had been secretly preaching Christianity.

“Investigations have revealed that [Juan Won-seo] went to Pakistan on a business visa, set up an Urdu academy in Quetta and got involved in illegal preaching activities,” Pakistan’s interior minister told UCAN on June 19. “We have revoked his visa and asked him to leave the country.”

    Thank God that the South Korean missionary wasn’t killed. Christians risk life to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to anyone because it is the only life-giving message on earth. The Word of Life.

      Muslims aren’t into darkness, what they need is to reform their laws. Muslims are already under God’s light, under the light of the Tawhid, the purest monotheism.

        Pagan religions and secular ideologies (all Non-christian ideologies on earth) do not value everyone’s life equally or unconditionally. Such concept does not exist among the raw humans. Only the Judeo-Christian teaching values and protects everyone’s life and conducts justice.

    Acts 20 and Phillippians 2 say: “I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace. …You will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. …Even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. So you too should be glad and rejoice with me.”

    Countless European and American Christian missionaries came and gave their life away to start the Church in Asia. True life-saving sacrificial works. Asian Christians follow their noble steps, ultimately following Lord Jesus Christ. Mankind has been surrounded by the Christian heroes. Hebrews chapter 11.

    “Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12)
