10. Juche: This is a North Korean religion which pervades all aspects of the North Korean Society. The Juche Religion worships Kim IL-sung, North Korea’s first dictator who died in 1994. Kim IL-sung however still rules as North Korea’s eternal President and worshipers of Juche believe that they will be united with their god when they die and live with him forever.
The founder of Juche, Kim IL-sung who acknowledged the impact of Christianity on North Koreans as at that time in a bid to perhaps retain power redirected the North Korean Christianity to focus on him. Kim took Christianity, removed God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, set up himself, his wife and son as the new trinity, and called it Juche.
