Franklin Graham writes on Facebook:
Thirty years ago Kim Hyon-hui killed 115 people by blowing up a plane as a North Korean spy. Today she wonders if her sins can be forgiven. I have some Good News for Kim. Her ultimate forgiveness and healing doesn’t come from people or governments, it comes from God — and God wants to forgive her. The Bible tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” No matter how bad the sin, we can have forgiveness by putting our faith and trust in His Son, Jesus Christ. Isn’t that great?
Shortly after the bombing, Kim was captured in Bahrain where her accomplice committed suicide with a cyanide-laced cigarette provided by the North Korean government. Kim attempted to do the same but her captors wrestled the cigarette away from her in time. She was then extradited to South Korea where she was sentenced to death, but two years later South Korea’s then-president granted her a pardon, saying that she’d been brainwashed by North Korea. The pardon was wildly controversial and since then Kim has lived under constant protection.
