Is there any Christian here that can defeat my arguement?
I'm an atheist and I think that your argument is utter shite. The entire bit with the North Korean hymn serves no logical purpose, it's not at all clear that Christians have a special obligation to overthrow kings, dictators or tyrants (the Bible being stuffed with them, and there being that whole "render unto Caesar" bit) and you provide no argument that they do.
You also did nothing to establish moral equivalence between a fat little flesh bag with no real claim to be those things in that song, and an omnipotent creator of an entire universe who does actually make flowers bloom and shit.
According to Bible, God is Omnipotent, Omnipresent, and Omniscient
And according to the Juche idea, as well as in reality, the great leader of North Korea is also Omnipotent, Omnipresent, and Omniscient
For a North Korean guy,
Kim is Omnipotent, if he wants you die, you die.
and he is Omnipresent, you look around in your neigborhood, you find Kim's photo hanging anywhere.
He is also Omniscient, if you express your disloyalty of him, some secret policemen will report it.
and finally, He is the driving force behind your world
Kim gave you a cradle to grave welfare state, you were born in a state owned hospital free of charge, educated in a state owned school free of charge, live by free food ration provided by Kim, and Kim gave you a job.
Finally, consider the following facts
http://dotheword.org/2014/03/17/how-is- ... istianity/
Christianity and Juche both have, as the center of their veneration, a trinity. Christians worship the one-in-three God of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as revealed in Scripture. Juche adherents worship Kim Il Sung, the former leader of North Korea who died in 1994, his wife Kim Jung Sook, and his son, Kim Jong Il, now also deceased (and reverenced). Homes in North Korea are required to feature prominently hung portraits of both Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il and damage to or neglect of either of their portraits (including, for example, failure to dust them or rescue them in the event of a house fire or flood) is a grave, often fatal offense.
Christians hold the Bible to be a sacred book, inspired by God himself. Juche holds the writings and teachings of Kim Il Sung to be holy and authoritative, and all North Koreans regardless of age regularly receive teaching from them. They are required to memorize large sections of these writings and to be able to quote from them throughout their lives. It would not be inaccurate to say that North Korean ethics is built around a “WWKD?” mentality: What would Kim Il Sung do? From grade school on, North Koreans are taught 100 stories of Kim Il Sung’s life, and these are considered normative for how all North Koreans should act.
Christians worship Jesus as the Son of God and believe he was resurrected from the dead to reign in glory with the Father. We believe upon death, believers are united with Jesus in heaven for eternity. Juche worships Kim Il Sung as though he is divine. He remains North Korea’s “eternal president,” which makes North Korea the only necrocracy (i.e., country ruled by a dead man) in the world. For North Koreans, eternal life is found in acts of great sacrifice and reverence of Kim Il Sung and his offspring, since such acts are memorialized forever in stories, songs, dramas, books, and films.
Many Christians believe the locations where Jesus was born, taught, prayed, etc. to be holy ground and many travel to Israel to see them. Likewise for the sites marking events in the life of Kim Il Sung. To this day, decades after his death, the places he visited, the comments he made at each site, and even the tools he touched are preserved and maintained with the same level of devotion as the shrines of Jesus. The same is true of Kim Jong Il. North Koreans say a star appeared overhead when Kim Jong Il was born in a humble log cabin in the snowy midwinter. As one reporter wrote, “All that is missing is the three kings and their camels.”
Christians attend weekly gatherings where we join together in the worship of God, repent of sin, and receive instruction from Scripture. Juche adherents gather regularly to repent of wrongdoing and receive instruction from Kim Il Sung. They sing songs from the Kim Il Sung hymnal–600 songs of worship of the one they call the “Great Leader.” Every city and village in North Korea contains a “Kim Il Sung Research Center,” which to Western eyes looks like what we would call a church building. North Korean defectors regularly tell us that if North Korea falls, it will not be necessary to build church buildings; all that is needed is to convert existing Kim Il Sung Research Centers.
