"How hardly shall they that have riches enter" - Not Charity but Change in Systems

Around Tokyo

Not Charity but Change in Systems

There are the two factors: wish to enjoy riches and wish to show some moral characters.

Almost all the humanitarian advocates in the world are rich.  They never become poor due to their activities to promote humanitarianism.

For example, UN officials who are in charge of promoting welfare in the poorest countries work in those countries helping poor people there, but they usually live in rich hotels of the countries.  Or, wealthy people  donate money to charity to save poor people such as the homeless.  But they will spend more money to secure their wealth.

So, true charity or humanitarian work should be based on belief that being rich is a crime and helping the poor is a duty of every rich man.  And this belief should be based on the teaching of Christ Jesus.

But the world is presented a very bad example to.  Even the Pope lives a very rich life while he is expressing his love to the poor.

The social and economic systems of this world should be changed to save the poor and victims of every evil such as terror, civil wars, etc.  But for a man to be rich, he has to first accept these systems and win competition in the systems.  He cannot deny the systems.

So, the teaching of Christ Jesus requests drastic change in human thoughts.  If a rich man is allowed to enter Heaven, he has to deny wealth he has obtained in the social and economic systems in this world and furthermore he has to deny such systems.

A nation can be rich through industrialization and further development and success in economy.   And many citizens might be richer.  But evil will surely give more damage to the society than when the nation was still poor.  It is because old systems remain, and they always succeed in finding new types of victims.

"thou shalt have treasure in heaven" - Worldly Riches and Heavenly Wealth

Around Tokyo

Worldly Riches and Heavenly Wealth

One's life is directed to either this world or Heaven.

To live a rich life is the most commonly observed goal of life for people.  But there are a few people who put the highest priority on living life for the purpose of entering Heaven.

For many people, to do anything including evil things so as to be rich is a matter of course.  But there are a few people who are determined to do anything good and avoid evil things so as to enter Heaven.

But most of people feel something bad when they have done something evil as to be rich.  People have to choose how much they will accept evil things or how much they will conduct evil things to earn money or secure their status in society.  It depends on how much they can neglect their conscience that tells them doing evil things is so horrible as it denies a possibility to be allowed to enter Heaven.

To our astonishment, there are even Christian priests who cannot understand what Heaven is but know how advantageous to live and work as Christian priests.  Some of them have conscience as little as common criminals.

If there is no such thing as Heaven, all the people will concentrate on efforts to live rich lives in this world, since there is nothing better than rich lives in this world.  And, all the people would do any evil things to earn money and big money.  And they will lose conscience because it is of no use for becoming rich, so that there will be no restriction on human behaviors in the end.  Those who have lost hope of becoming rich would attack, harm, and kill rich people.

But if you believe the words of Christ Jesus, you will believe that there is Heaven, and your souls will be allowed to enter Heaven when your souls depart this world after your physical bodies die.

And, Christ Jesus said that we can accumulate and have treasure in Heaven, which means we can be rich in Heaven.  But to be rich in Heave, we are not allowed accumulate wealth in this world, since such an act would invoke evil and wickedness that condition us to going to the hell.

Now the world is full of riches, products, and services.  The material civilization has reached to a very high level of success.  The world consists of various economic, political, and social systems where the notion that people should try to be rich as much as possible is taken as a matter of course.  However, there are influences from Heaven.  These systems have been built and operated so as not to pose serious challenges to human conscience.  Accordingly, there is a kind of balance between good and evil in this world.  However riches in this world can be easily seen, while treasure in Heaven cannot be seen.  People are mostly engaged in the worldly activities though their actions are somehow limited by influences of Heaven.

Put simply, you have to clearly see these two directions to live life expected by God: to worldly riches and to Heavenly wealth.

**** **** ****

Mar 10:21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.

"the devils are subject unto us through thy name" - As God Wishes

Around Tokyo

As God Wishes

Allah expelled Saddam Hussein in 2003, using US President Bush and US troops.

Subsequently, Allah also expelled Gaddafi, using insurgents of Libya.  Allah also expelled Mubarak, using citizens of Egypt.

But how will Allah expel Sadat from Syria?  Or is Allah using Sadat to have Muslims immigrate into Western Europe for a special purpose?  Or is God securing Israel by preventing Islamic terrorists from occupying Syria and thus threatening security of Israel?

Indeed, what God performs looks so mysterious to our eyes.

Even, God might have used Hitler to bring complete peace in Europe through sacrifice of millions of Judaists in WWII, for otherwise tens of millions of Europeans must have been killed in another war or the Third World War.

And what does God intend to allow co-existence of Christianity and Islam, in addition to Judaism?

All we can say is just "As God wishes."

"they shall hear my voice" - Democracy for Wealth or Justice

Around Tokyo

Democracy for Wealth or Justice

There is a story about a Catholic priest and Native Americans in the 18th century.

The Catholic  priest lived among and preached in a tribe of Native Americans for 30 years.  But finally, the Native Americans decided to kill the priest in their process to fighting British settlers, and actually they killed the priest and many British settlers.  But eventually, the tribe was defeated and dispersed by British settlers or the US troops and finally forgotten to disappear from the history.  Only some records about the Catholic priest were left behind.

So, Catholicism cannot save Native Americans and other people in Africa, Asia, and Americas who have faced invasion by Europeans.  But due to activities of Catholic priests, some real states of events that happened in the process of expansion of European civilization to the world, sometimes through colonization, have been known today.

Today, there are only little colonies of Europeans in the world.  Human, social, and political rights of all the races and tribes are recognized by almost every country in the world.  In a sense, a kind of justice  has been prevailing outwardly in the world as symbolized by US President Barack Obama.

With progress of democracy, the mankind has obtained more wealth than what had been thought possible.  Even the U.S. got richer along with expansion of its democratic system covering Minorities.  Japan also drastically increased its wealth after WWII by adopting the American-style democracy.  Though China is not yet a democratic nation, it adopted market-based economy, highly influences by concepts of democracy, which has resulted in big economic growth.  Prosperous Western Europe has also put its base on democratic political systems 100% since Nazi Germany that hated Judaists collapsed in WWII.

So, the mankind has learnt that democracy is a key to expanding economy and crating huge wealth.

But democracy is also a tool to realize justice.

If the final goal of people is economic weal and they use democracy as a tool to realize the final goal, democracy cannot solve some critical problems in the human society.  If the final goal of people is justice, they will rather sacrifice economic wealth in their endeavor for justice by manipulating democracy.

However, like some tribe of Native Americans in the 18th century, some people today look like launching a tragic war against something they cannot never win, though they are given wisdom of democracy.

And it may be because they are not fully taught about the teaching of God.

"in the day of judgment" - God Created the Sun, the Earth and the Moon

Around Tokyo

God Created the Sun, the Earth and the Moon

God created this universe, the Milky Way, the solar system, and the earth where He created the mankind.

Accordingly God must have set some hint or evidence to the mankind so that they could discover that God created the earth and the universe.

One of such pieces of evidence is in the sky where the sun and the moon look the same in their sizes to the eyes of the mankind on the earth.  But the diameter of the sun is 100 times larger than earth's while the diameter of the moon is 4 times smaller than earth's.

The fact that the sun and the earth look having the same size gave great influences to the mankind.  Human religions and philosophy, since ancient or much older days, were all influenced by this outwardly balance between the moon and the sun.

However, it is thought that such a planet as the earth is rare in the universe, where its satellite and its fixed star look the same in the size.

In addition, the distance between the earth and the moons is a distance over which light travels almost in 1 second.

From the beginning, if God did not give special features to hydrogen and oxygen so that they can form water molecules, no water and no life could have been produced in this universe.

These facts all strongly suggest that this universe, the sun, the earth, and the moon were all created according to the design of God for the mankind.

"let your peace come upon it" - Simulation for Understanding the Bible

Inside a Train Vehicle around Tokyo

Simulation for Understanding the Bible

Suppose that an earth is a button with the diameter of 1 cm (a little less than a half inch) or half the diameter of a US five-cent coin.

Put the button on the home base of a ball park.  Then put a tire of a truck with the diameter of 1 meter (or 3 feet) on the wall behind the center field 118 meters (350 feet) far from the home base.

In this configuration, the half-inch button on the home base is the earth, and the 3-foot truck tire on the center-field wall is the sun.

Can you believe the button will go around the sun by power of gravitation if the mass of the tire is 330,000 times larger than that of the button.  (If the tire is made of concrete while the button weighs 1 gram, it might satisfy this condition.)

If you simply put the button and the concrete tire in the space in this configuration, the button will not circulate around the tire like the sun circulating around the sun.  As time goes by, the button will simply move to the tire and stick to it due to gravity.

For the earth to go around the sun, there must be specific past conditions where components of the earth were created while they were from the beginning going around the sun.

So, if you only read the Bible, you cannot attain real understanding of the religion and salvation of your souls.  You have to simulate how the Bible was created.

"there abide till ye go thence" - Glory of God and Prime Numbers

A Subway Station in Tokyo

Glory of God and Prime Numbers

There are many prime numbers till 10: (1), 2, 3, 5, and 7.  Almost 40 to 50% of integers till the number 10 are prime numbers.

But there are only 25 or 26 primary numbers till 100: (1), 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, and 97.  Almost 25% of integers till 100 are prime numbers.

However the number of prime numbers till 1000 is 168 (169), about 17%.

It is like growth of human beings.  When they are young children, they can only understand numbers till 10, so that they think 40 to 50% of the world consists of prime numbers or glory of God.

But as they grow up, they can see prime numbers only 25% or 17% in all the numbers they encounter or all the events they encounter.   The ratio becomes smaller and smaller when they live as adults.

So, adults forget how the world looked filled with glory of God when they were small children.

However, Christ Jesus said that men had to be like small children to enter the Heaven.

Incidentally, the number of prime numbers included from 2 to 100 million is 5,761,455, meaning 5.8%.  If you have an asset of $100 million, you can see only 10% of glory of God compared with very poor men or young children who have just 10 dollars.

"Whosoever shall put away his wife" - Presidential Candidate Debate Last Morning


Presidential Candidate Debate Last Morning

The important part of the debate between Hillary Clinton and Trump broadcast yesterday's morning in Japan:
CLINTON: He never apologized to Mr. and Mrs. Khan, the Gold Star family whose son, Captain Khan, died in the line of duty in Iraq. And Donald insulted and attacked them for weeks over their religion. 
He never apologized to the distinguished federal judge who was born in Indiana, but Donald said he couldn’t be trusted to be a judge because his parents were, quote, “Mexican.” 
He never apologized to the reporter that he mimicked and mocked on national television and our children were watching. And he never apologized for the racist lie that President Obama was not born in the United States of America. He owes the president an apology, he owes our country an apology, and he needs to take responsibility for his actions and his words. 
TRUMP: Well, you owe the president an apology, because as you know very well, your campaign, Sidney Blumenthal — he’s another real winner that you have — and he’s the one that got this started, along with your campaign manager, and they were on television just two weeks ago, she was, saying exactly that. So you really owe him an apology. You’re the one that sent the pictures around your campaign, sent the pictures around with President Obama in a certain garb. That was long before I was ever involved, so you actually owe an apology. 
Number two, Michelle Obama. I’ve gotten to see the commercials that they did on you. And I’ve gotten to see some of the most vicious commercials I’ve ever seen of Michelle Obama talking about you, Hillary. 
So, you talk about friend? Go back and take a look at those commercials, a race where you lost fair and square, unlike the Bernie Sanders race, where you won, but not fair and square, in my opinion. And all you have to do is take a look at WikiLeaks and just see what they say about Bernie Sanders and see what Deborah Wasserman Schultz had in mind, because Bernie Sanders, between super-delegates and Deborah Wasserman Schultz, he never had a chance. And I was so surprised to see him sign on with the devil. 
But when you talk about apology, I think the one that you should really be apologizing for and the thing that you should be apologizing for are the 33,000 e-mails that you deleted, and that you acid washed, and then the two boxes of e-mails and other things last week that were taken from an office and are now missing. 
And I’ll tell you what. I didn’t think I’d say this, but I’m going to say it, and I hate to say it. But if I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation, because there has never been so many lies, so much deception. There has never been anything like it, and we’re going to have a special prosecutor. 
When I speak, I go out and speak, the people of this country are furious. In my opinion, the people that have been long-term workers at the FBI are furious. There has never been anything like this, where e-mails — and you get a subpoena, you get a subpoena, and after getting the subpoena, you delete 33,000 e-mails, and then you acid wash them or bleach them, as you would say, very expensive process. 
So we’re going to get a special prosecutor, and we’re going to look into it, because you know what? People have been — their lives have been destroyed for doing one-fifth of what you’ve done. And it’s a disgrace. And honestly, you ought to be ashamed of yourself. 
RADDATZ: Secretary Clinton, I want to follow up on that.
RADDATZ: And really, the audience needs to calm down here. 
CLINTON: … I told people that it would be impossible to be fact-checking Donald all the time. I’d never get to talk about anything I want to do and how we’re going to really make lives better for people. 
So, once again, go to We have literally Trump — you can fact check him in real time. Last time at the first debate, we had millions of people fact checking, so I expect we’ll have millions more fact checking, because, you know, it is — it’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country. 
TRUMP: Because you’d be in jail.

"shall a man leave his father and mother" - A Lesson of Prime Numbers


   A Lesson of Prime Numbers

There is something that cannot be foreseen but will surely happen in this world.

From a classical point of view, if one can get all the past information related to a system, he can predict future states of the system.  However, in modern physics, this belief is not sustained.  There is the law of probability in deciding occurrence of events.  So, we can only predict the future under conditions based on probability.

However, there is another way of denying determinism.

It is related to prime numbers.  When and what prime number will appear in the series of numbers (integers) cannot be predicted based on information of all the numbers preceding to the prime number.  To check if a new number is a prime number, you have to make some calculation; you cannot identify a prime number just by referring to all the numbers that precede it.

For example, if you know all the numbers from 1 to 10, such information cannot predict that 11 is a prime number.  If you know all the numbers from 1 to 100, such knowledge does not help you predict that 101 is a prime number.

In the series of integers, prime numbers suddenly appear without an omen; there are no formulas and rules that tell how prime numbers are distributed in the series of integers.

So, life may be liken to the series of integers.  People live every day, while accumulating past knowledge.  But suddenly one day they meet a situation where past knowledge is not useful to understand it.  It is a primary-number situation.

But as God created this universe and world, He also created the infinite sequence of integers.  God knows where and what prime numbers are situated in the sequence.  Accordingly, God only knows what events will appear in life of people.

In this context the mankind cannot be a ruler of the universe.  We have to be humble, because we are subject to God's wisdom that created all the prime numbers we cannot know in principle and in a practical sense.

"Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement" - In Hopes for Three Years

Fukushima City, Japan

In Hopes for Three Years

Suppose that there are particles of the same type in a limited space.  They freely move around, so that two particles collide with each other sometimes.  But there is a chance that three particles collide simultaneously.    

In a certain condition, according to an analysis, the probability of three particle collision is one thousandth of that of two particle collision.

For a man to behave good as taught by God, three conditions must be met: recognition of value of behaving good in principle, personal conditions for behaving good, and the will to behave good.  If any two of the three factors are realized simultaneously every day, it is only once in 1,000 days or almost three years that all these conditions are met.

So, we can only expect an ordinary man to behave good as taught by God once in three years.

Conversely, something very bad might happen once in three years in the human world due to accumulation of evil actions of people.

For example, Christ Jesus is said to have preached in almost only three years.  The worst conditions must have met at the third year of His preaching.  However, on the third day from His crucifixion, Christ Jesus resurrected.

In Japan, there is a saying that if you live even on a rock for three years, you can achieve something.

So, entertain hopes for at least three years if you are in a difficult situation.

"he gave them power against unclean spirits" - Faith in God, Fear of God

Around Tokyo

Faith in God, Fear of God

Christ Jesus said that people with faith in God were like lams in a pack of wolves.

Conversely, people without faith in God would try to abuse and harm others to satisfy their desire, which believers would never do.  And, how badly they abuse and harm others is unpredictable and limitless.  There are many hidden atrocities conducted by citizens onto others.  The human world is full of danger.

The issue is that wolves do not realize how cruel they are, so that those without faith do not realize how cruel they are to others as well as to themselves.

But God did not give intellectual and spiritual ability to the mankind so that they become intellectual and spiritual wolves.  There is a purpose for God's creating the mankind with higher ability.  But if the mankind abuses it, they must be destroyed by God.

Maybe what we need is the fear of God in this regard as well as faith in God.

Indeed, who can stand before anger of God that the mankind is incurring due to their betrayal of God in this context?

"but by prayer and fasting" - Prayer to God to be Free From Ill Spirits

Around Tokyo

Prayer to God to be Free From Ill Spirits

If nobody wants to be richer than others, there will be no crimes.

But there is another factor for evil deeds and crimes, ill spirits or Satan.  In the era when Christ Jesus was living, people believed existence of ill spirits and Satan.  They thought that if a person was haunted by an ill spirit or Satan, he or she would have acted like a mad or evil man or woman.

To cope with ill spirits or Satan, people have to always try to follow teaching of God, according to Christ Jesus.  Without receiving a decisive influence from an external world, minds of people can be captured by an ill spirit.  Bur today, commercialism is sending messages and images via TV broadcasting and the Internet that are intended to invoke and amplify material desire among the audience and consumers who will consequently have less resistance to influences of ill spirits and Satan.

Today, there must be more people, than we suppose, who are under influence of ill spirits and Satan.  Accordingly, tens of millions of people are neglected while they are suffering hardships and tragic fates, and news about such people in Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, etc. are reaching all over the world.   So, in this modern era, people who are controlled by ill spirits are not simply acting like mad men, but working coolly and rationally in Wall Street businesses, companies in the financial sectors in advanced countries, and big businesses all over the world.  However, on the other hand, tens of millions of people in some parts of the world are living very dangerous life.

So, people under control of ill spirits and Satan must look just ordinary people with some wealth.  They may not be violent at all in their behaviors.  They may look like observing laws and rules.  They must be living like normal citizens.   But they neglect tens of millions of poor people in the world while they know the fact.

We had better doubt common sense.  The society in which we live must be controlled by wealthy people, politicians, other elite members of the society who behave like honest men but actually whose minds are controlled by ill spirits and Satan.

Even Islam teaches that for Muslims to get free from ill spirits, they have to pray to Allah at least five times a day.

We need incessant prayer to Christ Jesus and God to be completely free from ill spirits and Satan.

"he took Peter and John and James" - Christ Jesus and the Gospels

Around Tokyo

Christ Jesus and the Gospels

Christ Jesus did not order His disciples to write down His words and His actions for future generations.

Christ Jesus sometimes referred to the Old Testament, which means that He might think about a possibility that His words and deeds would be someday compiled in another Testament.  But He never made any efforts to keep His life in record.

It is in clear distinction from the case of Islam where the Koran has played an essential role.

So, it is enigma about Christianity: How Christ Jesus regards the New Testament, and especially the Gospels.

So, we have to judge whether or not the Gospels were written through guidance of the spirit of Christ Jesus.

"Thou son of David" - Meaning of Believing in Christ Jesus

The Tokyo Station

Meaning of Believing in Christ Jesus

Christ Jesus apparently thought that life after death was real.  So, believing in Christ Jesus means believing in life after death.

But life after death is either in Heaven or the hell according to Christ Jesus.  So, believing in Christ Jesus means understanding how to be allowed to enter the Heaven.

Accordingly, if you truly believe in Christ Jesus, you will have no fear for death, at least, in principle.

But what is the spiritual world that must exist above this material world?  Probably to make us concentrate on life in this world, Christ Jesus did not reveal specifically the real state of the spiritual world.

What is more important is believing in Christ Jesus means believing existence of God.

So, believing in Christ Jesus itself is salvation of our souls.

"And the spirit cried" - Descendants of Abraham from a Stone


Descendants of Abraham from a Stone

Christ Jesus said that God can even make descendants of Abraham from a stone.

Due to this word, Judaists have lost their special positions, though they have been still descendants of Abraham.  And, indeed, Arabs have claimed that they are also descendants of Abraham.

God also made Obama the first African American.  He could make a US President from a son of a modern African.

Then he must be able to make a US President from a woman, if He so wishes.  Or will He make a US President from an indecent billionaire?

Whichever, if God intervenes in the 2026 US Presidential election, people must learn a holy lesson.

"all things are possible" - The Finite is Generated from the Infinite


The Finite is Generated from the Infinite

The life is finite.  But people live without being harassed by the concept of the finite.

It is said that animals live as if they could live forever since they do not understand the meaning of death.  However, human beings know that someday the end of life happens to each of them.  Their lives are finite.  But human beings are also living as if they could live forever.

This is a different matter from that about whether one believes existence of life after death.  It is a matter that human beings feel there is something that is infinite.

It is the basic law that everything finite is generated from the infinite.  Everything finite is part of something infinite.  Life of a man is finite, but God is infinite.  Life of everyone, which is finite, must be part of the infinity of God.  Accordingly, none get panicked to think that his life is finite, since his life is part of the infinity of God.

People do not clearly think such a thing.  But they must unconsciously feel that they are part of the infinity, so that they feel a kind of confidence about their existence.

If there is nothing that is infinite in this universe, the mankind should get depressed as if they were put in a cage.

There is a great gap between the mankind and the God, which is infinity.  Materially human beings are finite, but spiritually they can be close to God's infinity.

Anyway, the finite is generated from the infinite.  Human beings are generated by God.

"John the Baptist; but some say, Elias" - God and Human Civilization

National Diet Bldg., Tokyo

God and Human Civilization

It is very strange that God has not directly spoken to any men since He gave His words to Muhammad 1,400 years ago.

Or it is very strange that there have been none who have received words of God in these 1,400 years.  Of course, it might be stranger that God has not sent His Son again in these 2,000 years, though Christ Jesus said that He would be back to this world at the time when the end of the world is near.

But it is more disappointing that the mankind has not fully discovered what God is in these 1,400 years or 2,000 years, though Judaists seems to have believed that God is their God and that is enough for them for these 4,000 years.

People have various objects in their lives.  To achieve them, the mankind, as a mass of people, has developed various cultures and civilizations.  The mankind has acquired various knowledge about the nature and technologies to manipulate products of the nature to make itself happy, if not for compering with God.

However, if the ultimate goal of human activities in various fields is to make individuals happy, people should follow the teachings of God, since God loves the mankind.  Conversely, the fact that the mankind has developed material civilization more than relying on the teaching of God might mean something horrible.  The mankind might be challenging God.

It is Satan who is challenging God, according to the teaching of God.  Then, Satan should help the mankind develop material civilization.  In this context, we cannot expect nothing wonderful in the future of the mankind with extremely developed civilization.  God will surely destroy Satan and the human material civilization that is supported by Satan.

Finally, no matter how happily a man lives and dies, it is God how to treat his or her soul after death.  Human science and technology, as well as wealth, are useless in the end for any human beings.

"he had been blind, and received his sight" - 150 Million Foreign Workers

Flying with a piece of rainbow

150 Million Foreign Workers

There are globally 150 million people who are working in foreign countries.  In the US, there are 37 million foreign workers.  Those workers send money to families in their home countries.
A remittance is a transfer of money by a foreign worker to an individual in his or her home country. Money sent home by migrants competes with international aid as one of the largest financial inflows to developing countries. Workers' remittances are a significant part of international capital flows, especially with regard to labour-exporting countries.[1] In 2014, $436 billion went to developing countries, setting a new record. Overall global remittances also totaled $583 billion.[2] Some countries, such as India and China, receive tens of billions of US dollars in remittances each year from their expatriates. In 2014, India received an estimated $70 billion and China an estimated $64 billion.
Christ Jesus told 2000 years ago to be kind to foreigners since ancestors of Judaists had been once foreign workers in foreign countries.

However, the fact that India and China are top two countries in terms of the amount of remittances suggest that the world is not developing in a sound manner.  The global economy is making rich Hindus and Chinese richer but making poor Hindus and Chinese leave their home countries to work in foreign countries.

Anyway, those working in foreign countries should need help from God more than those working in their own countries.  That must be why Judaists have never abandoned their religion since they had been expelled from Palestine about 1900 years ago.

"they put new wine into new bottles" - Appearance and Truth

Fukushima City, Japan

Appearance and Truth

Christ Jesus said, "Don't judge people by their appearance!"

In other words, we should not try to look better than others for the purpose of gaining more favor than others.

This truth is often adopted by mystery novelists.  The true culprit of a crime is sometimes a person who looks so innocent, pretty, or handsome.

Indeed, there are no descriptions in the Bible that suggest that followers of Christ Jesus included beautiful women, though there might have been some such women.

Anyway, the Bible teaches that the world became bad since men started to marry good looking women.

"What question ye with them?" - Japanese History and the Imperial Family

Tokyo Bay

Japanese History and the Imperial Family

The history of Japan is divided into the five stages:
I: From the Stone Age tens of thousands of years ago to the establishment of the imperial court around the 4th century.
II: From the establishment of the imperial court to the start of the first samurai regime in the early 12th century.
III: The period of samurai government from the early 12th century to the middle of the 19th century when the last samurai regime collapsed.
IV: From the Meiji Restoration of the imperial authority in 1868 to the end of WWII in 1945.
V: From the end of WWII to the present day.

The most important feature of the Japanese history is that Japan has not been occupied or colonized by foreign tribes or nations except the short period of occupation of Japan by the US and allied forces after WWII.  And, Japan has only one family that is recognized as royal family all thorough its history: the Japanese Imperial Family.

It is especially interesting that only one family, the Imperial Family, has occupied the position at the top of the Japanese society and Japanese races all through the Japanese history.  Though samurais (warriors with administrative power) took over power from the imperial court in the early 12th century, they did not abolish the imperial court.

Through the period of samurai regimes, samurais established their governments to govern and control all over Japan while emperors and the imperial court were left in Kyoto without any actual political power.  However, no samurai families openly tried to supersede or succeeded in superseding the imperial family, though samurai shguns, the top leader of the samurai class, put emperors and the imperial court under their control.

Till the middle of the 19th century, this political structure had worked well.  No foreign countries could invade and occupy Japan while the integrity of the Japanese society had been well maintained.

But, when Western nations, including the US and Russia, expanded their colonial activities to the Far East and tried to make Japan open the nation to them based on their military power, samurais understood that the traditional national system of Japan was ineffective.  From the early 17th century to the middle of the 19th century, the last samurai regime led by the Tokugawa clan closed the door to most of foreign countries.  Bur they found that the world was rapidly changing with Western countries, with advanced technology, expanding their power to Asia.   Japan could not be excluded from this trend.  Sooner or later, those Western nations with advanced weapons realized by their industrial revolution would soon colonize Japan by force.

Accordingly, Japanese came to abolish the samurai rule and established a modern government with the emperor set anew as the monarch.  Ex-samurais became bureaucrats, officials, military officers, and other elite members of a modernized government.  This is what is called the Meiji Restoration.

Put simply, to cope with the Western colonizing power and defend Japan and the Japanese race, Japan needed an authentic symbol at the core of its national system.  And, the Imperial Family was fit for this purpose.  All the Japanese were assembled around the Imperial Family to cope with Western powers.  They were requested to pay absolute respect for the Emperor, though some democratic systems were introduced into the Japanese politics and society before WWII.

After the Empire of Japan was defeated and WWII ended, Japan has been strongly influenced by the American culture and civilization.  The new Constitution, which  ensures full democracy, was adopted where the emperor is defined as a symbol of the Japanese people without real political power.  The Japanese people are positioned as supreme rulers of themselves.

So, the Imperial Family has survived to date.  It is truly a symbol of the Japanese history.  However, it is still unknown what role they should play in future.  But one important factor contributing to their 1500-year long survival is that the Imperial Family has been in the center of the traditional culture.  If it has lost political authority completely, the Imperial Family should hold a position with authority in the shinto religion and various fields of traditional culture.

"and made them all sit down" - The Key is God

The Tokyo Suburbs

The Key is God

One of the important teaching of Jesus Christ is that human beings must first think about God and then think about their living.

It means that as long as men are following the teaching of God, God will help them survive and live well.  However, if you cannot think that God has actual power to save poor believers and He would really exercise His power for them, you cannot follow the teaching of Jesus Christ.

In this world, wealth and worldly power have decisive influences on people.  To be happy, one must have money.  To be safe, one must be protected by social or political power.  This is  commonsense.  But, Jesus Christ teaches that it is God that saves people who are not happy and safe.  Jesus Christ teaches it is not money and worldly power that saves people who are not happy and safe.

In other words, Satan teaches that only money and worldly power can make human beings happy, so Satan tells human beings to be as cool or cruel as possible to others in order to be happy.  But Jesus Christ teaches that human beings must first follow the teachings of God and then God will take care of them.

One of the keys to handling this issue is what God is for human beings.  From the beginning, can human beings believe in existence of God?  The teaching of Christ Jesus is based on the condition that people can admit existence of God as super existence with unlimited power.  And, He teaches people who admit existence of God that God must be first respected and then He would take care of people.

Today, most of people think they can be happy if they have money.  Some of them might think that God is existent, but they also think that God does not give them money and make them happy.  Others even deny existence of God, and they naturally think that God does not give them money and make them happy.

However, even the most advanced science cannot deny existence of God who created this material universe.  The most advanced science even suggest other material universes outside our material universe.  So, we cannot deny existence of the spiritual universe outside our material universe.  And God can exist materially and spiritually.

If human beings belong to the universe God created, it is logically correct that they first follow the teachings of God before trying to be happy based on money.

Every problem in this world is related to human desire to be happy.  But, if everyone first follows the teaching of God as he or she is supposed to do, there will be no problems and tragedies in the world.

The theme for human beings is God and how correctly they can understand God.

"when Jesus made the clay" - A Lecture by Great Author Soseki Natsume

Around a City in the North of Tokyo

A Lecture by Great Author Soseki Natsume

The most popular author in the modern history of Japan, Soseki Natsume (1867-1916), once made a speech to young people.

As the audience were mostly students of universities, colleges, or high-schools, who were expected to become elite members of the Japanese society before WWII, Soseki especially dealt with their future.  So, the highly-respected author, who once taught the English literature in the Imperial University of Tokyo, delivered a lecture.

"Most of you are elite students.  When you graduate from schools, you would be regarded as elite candidates of the society.  If you start to work in government offices or big enterprises, or engage in any professional work, you will be envied.  And, as time goes by, you will have some power and wealth.  Then commonplace people will have access to you for your power and wealth.  They will flatter you to gain your favor.  And you may corrupt and degenerate.  You have to be careful in handling your power and wealth."

Soseki Natsume himself did not have access to politicians and financial cliques, though he was sometimes invited to parties or banquets by leaders in politics and business.  Soseki kept some distance, in a deliberate way, to those elites of the Imperial Government and business leaders.

And, there were no other authors except Soseki who clearly gave a warning for negative effects of power and wealth on humanities in the history of the Japanese literature.  Every author wants to be rich, influential, and famous.  Ordinary authors cannot hold a warning for evil of money and social status, admonishing young people not to be influenced by a rotten climate of the society.

If you become very rich or obtain some political or social power with high status, you will have controlling power over some people.  And, it will be very difficult for you to be benevolent, fair, just, and kind to them.  One of the most important themes of literature must be this issue.

"the golden altar which is before God" - Green Islam or Yellow Islam


Green Islam or Yellow Islam

According to the teaching of Islam, Muhammad actually met Christ Jesus.
The Isra and Mi'raj are the two parts of a Night Journey that, according to Islam, the prophet, Muhammad, took during a single night around the year 621. It has been described as both a physical and spiritual journey.

From various hadith we learn much greater detail. The Isra is the part of the journey of Muhammad from Mecca to Jerusalem. It began when Muhammad was in the Masjid al-Haram, and the archangel Gabriel (Jibrīl or Jibrāʾīl) came to him, and brought Buraq, the traditional heavenly steed of the prophets. Buraq carried Muhammad to the Masjid Al Aqsa, the "Farthest Mosque", in Jerusalem. Muhammad alighted, tethered Buraq to the Temple Mount and performed prayer, where on God's command he was tested by Gabriel.[6][7] It was told by Anas ibn Malik that Muhammad said: "Jibra'il brought me a vessel of wine, a vessel of water and a vessel of milk, and I chose the milk. Jibra'il said: 'You have chosen the Fitrah (natural instinct).'" In the second part of the journey, the Mi'raj (an Arabic word that literally means "ladder"[8]), Buraq took him to the heavens, where he toured the seven stages of heaven, and spoke with the earlier prophets such as Abraham (ʾIbrāhīm), Moses (Musa), John the Baptist (Yaḥyā ibn Zakarīyā), and Jesus (Isa). Muhammad was then taken to Sidrat al-Muntaha – a holy tree in the seventh heaven that Gabriel was not allowed to pass. According to Islamic tradition, God instructed Muhammad that Muslims must pray fifty times per day; however, Moses told Muhammad that it was very difficult for the people and urged Muhammad to ask for a reduction, until finally it was reduced to five times per day.
This story for Islamic teaching suggests that Islam is decisively linked with Judaism and Christianity, though it has its own unique part.

If Judaism is blue, Christianity is red, and Islam is green, their relationships can be expressed in analogy with  light's three primary colors as below:

Maybe, the white part represents the true religion.  Then, we have to find the overlapped teachings of the three religions to be true believers of God.

However, if Judaism is blue, Christianity is red, and Islam is yellow, their relationships can be expressed in analogy with  light's three primary colors for color material as below:

In this case, the common part of the three religions is not white but black that is not true religion but nothing.  Then, we should not have take together the three religions but should leave them separately as they are.

The point at issue is after identifying Judaism as blue and Christianity as red, what color should Islam take.  If it takes green, all the three religions together would eventually result in white, the true religion, but if it takes yellow,  all the three religions together would eventually result in nothing or nothingness.

In this context, the religious fate of the mankind depends on Islam.  And we cannot take an optimistic view on the outlook of it, since Islamic nations have been under tragic conditions since the start of the 21st century to date.

Or maybe there are two types of Islam: the green one and the yellow one.  Then should we conquer the yellow Islam as the above tentative theory suggests?

"in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon" - Same Old Evil after 15 Years after the 9/11 Terror


Same Old Evil after 15 Years after the 9/11 Terror

The 9/11 Terror did not make especially poor men rich and rich men poor in the US and other Western nations.  But it triggered some serious changes in the world.

The most important result has been unstable conditions in Islamic nations.  As the US demolished the Saddam Hussein regime in Iraq, ISIS terrorists expanded its power of influence in Iraq, Syria, Libya, and other Islamic regions, which resulted in a large number of refugees to Europe.

Indirectly this situation that the US cannot fully occupy, control, and foster pro-American regimes in Islamic nations despite its long-term War on Terror has bee taken by Russia and China as showing a kind of weakness of the US power.  Accordingly, Russia has acted bellicosely in Ukraine and China has acted  militantly in the South and East China Seas.  Even North Korea continues its nuclear-weapon development plan.

The 9/11 Terror killed 3,000 Americans and other nationalities, but the following War on Terror and Islamic civil wars took on and victimized millions of lives of Muslims.

It tells that the then President W. Bush made a bad decision and led a wrong war.  His lack of  qualification as a US president was also revealed by the 2008 Financial Crisis.  So, American voters chose Barack Obama as the first African-American President.  This revolutionary choice somewhat contributed to stability of the American society and the global political mood, though Islamic nations under threat from ISIS have not been enjoying the benefit.

The lesson of the 9/11 Terror is to understand evil of wealth, because super-rich people in both the US and oil-producing Islamic nations became enemies of Muslims as they suppressed them.  As poor Muslims thought that they were abused by rich Muslims and Americans, some of them supported AlQaeda and now are supporting ISIS.

Rich Americans and rich Muslims, both must have found a chance in making more money after the 9/11 Terror.  Accordingly, none are serious in preventing tragedies in Islamic nations.  Indeed, Dubai and some other Islamic nations are prosperous, and the US economy is also expanding 15 years after the 9/11 Terror.

Unless those countries concerned give up their prosperity and use it as resources to realize justice and welfare among poor Islamic people, the aftermath of the 9.11  will not cease any time soon.

Put simply there is still the same old evil 15 years after the 9/11 Terror: the rich and super-rich in the US and Islamic nations.

The war on terror has resulted in loss of hundreds of thousands of lives and the 9/11 had a 0.28% share in the total loss. They justify the loss of lives as ‘collateral damage’ but explain that to a young orphan in Iraq or Afghanistan provided they managed to survive.

"into a desert place belonging to the city called Bethsaida" - Uniqueness of Okinawa, Japan


Uniqueness of Okinawa, Japan

It is said in a city with population less than 300,000, you can be easily identified by others such as the police if a certain incident occurs and you might surely encounter your acquaintances in a place where you do not expect such an encounter in the long run.

Accordingly, some smart guys, including some criminals, want to live or work in a big city with population of more than one million.

In Japanese villages in old times, there was an untold rule of ostracism.  If a villager did something that gravely provoked others, if not a criminal, and did not compensate damage, the person would be treated as if  he or she did not exist in the village.  Every human relation and  companionship would be rejected except in the cases of funerals and fires.  Then, in some cases, a  villager ostracized had to leave the village because the person could not live normally any more.

This kind of social customs can be seen any small communities in the world.  Villagers envy others, have a grudge against one another,  and have their prides hurt and neglected.  If there were no rules and authority to govern villagers, a village can be easily fallen apart.  If villagers got their revenge on one another without restriction, no order and peace could be maintained in a village.

Accordingly, people would behave cautiously and get sensitive to others' moods in local villages everywhere in the world.  It is because every member of a village knows every other member.

To avoid such evil, one has to leave his village  and come to a big city.  Then, he would be freed from close censorship by other villagers.  But, in a big city, there are too many temptations in addition to too many criminals.

Traditionally, Asians were living in such local communities with various restrictions.  Even in capitals and big cities of their countries were under strong control of their native rulers who also controlled religions of their countries.  Then since the 16th century, Westerners started to invade and colonize Asian regions.  And, if native rulers of those Asian regions could not cope with Western military power and surrender, local people in the regions had to just follow their rulers.  It is because Western colonialists used old systems and regimes of regions to effectively control their-colonized territories.  So, if a local villager who wanted to be free from old customs in his village fled from the village to a capital, they had to face another cruel rule by Western colonialists who mostly set their colonial bases in big cities.

Especially in Islamic nations, restriction imposed on villagers was strong.  Even if they came to live in their capitals, still religious restriction was strong.  And Western countries have strong influences on their governments in their capitals.  It would be very difficult for them to be free, if they ever wished to be free.

In Japan, the ratio of urban population against its whole population is 92.49% while the UK 82.09%, Canada 81.47%, the US 81.28%, France 79.06%, Germany 74.89%, Italy 68.69%, China 53.17%, Thailand 47.94%,  and India 31.99%.

Japan is a highly urbanized Asian nation; most of Japanese are free from old or traditional social restriction as have been found in local villages in older days.  But, in Japan, Okinawa Prefecture, an island province in the East China Sea with population 1.4 million, seems to be still under conditions of close relationship and strong restriction in terms of social life of people.  It might have unique influence on the fact that Okinawa has more US military bases since the end of WWII than any other prefectures in Japan.
Okinawa Prefecture in Japan today might somewhat look like an old Western colony, though there are more human empathy in Okinawa that cannot be frequently seen in Tokyo and other big Japanese cities outside Okinawa.

Note: Okinawa prefecture constitutes 0.6% of Japan's land surface, yet as of 2006, 75% of all United States Forces Japan (USFJ) bases were located on Okinawa, and U.S. military bases occupied 18% of the main island.

"he saith unto him, Follow me" - What Japanese Chess Implies

Tokyo Bay

What Japanese Chess Implies

In Japanese chess (shogi), there are possible 80 moves in a given stage on average, but chess has only 35 possible moves on average.

It took 16 years for computers to defeat a professional shogi player after they had beaten a professional chess player.  Shogi is far more complicated than chess.

It is thought that shogi was imported to Japan from China around the 6th or 7th century, though this game was originated in  ancient India.   Incidentally, Western chess was also from the same origin in ancient India.

So, Japanese have trained their brains through this game, shogi, in addition to go play for more than 1300 years.  It might imply that Japanese have been traditionally more clever than Westerners whose brains have been trained through chess whose complexity is less that that of shogi.

Indeed, Japanese are good at manipulating matters in strategic ways.  That is why Japan could become a country well industrialized and modernized even before WWII, unlike any other Asian nations.  Since the abolition of its closed-door policy  in the middle of the 19th century, Japan rapidly caught up with Western nations in terms of science, technology,  industry, and culture.  Indeed without Japan's success in its industrial revolution since the middle of the 19th century, most of Asian countries, including China, India, and Korea, should be under colonial rule by Western nations even today.

However, Japan had not been influenced by ancient Greek civilization till its start of Westernization after its Meiji Restoration or a drastic regime change from the rule of samurai to the imperial government.  Therefore, underlying philosophy, rooted in the ancient Greek Civilization, that allowed Europeans to develop their scientific study was so remote from the traditional Japanese culture.  So, contribution by Japanese to development of the global history of modern ideas and thoughts is so little as compared with Japan's contribution to global science and technologies.

Moreover, Japan led by samurai leaders closed its door to Western countries, except the Netherlands, from the early 17th century to the middle of the 19th century for the purpose of preventing influx of Christianity into the Japanese society.  So, even today most of Japanese do not become Christians and are not not familiar with ideas and thoughts based on Christianity.  Only, 1.5% of the Japanese population go to church.

In China, it is said that there are more than 60 million Christians, accounting for only about 5% of the Chinese population, though its communist government does not allow full freedom of religion.  China has also never been under influence of the ancient Greek civilization in its history of ideas.  But, Chinese love complicated games more than Japanese.  They are strategists as good as Japanese.  But, there is a big difference between Japan and China in terms of their views on humanity and society.

After WWII, a new Japanese Constitution  was formulated along with advice from General MacArthur who led the US and allied forces that occupied Japan.  And, the framework of the Constitution was set by young US officers who believed in Christian virtue.  Therefore, the Japanese Constitution was basically influenced by Christianity.  The success of Japan after WWII was made possible partly owing to this Constitution.  There are many articles and provisions that pure Japanese cannot even come up with in drafting a constitution.  But, with this Constitution, Japan came to be regarded as fully modernized to be a member of developed Western countries after WWII.  In other word, Japan shares some basic cultural value with Europe and America.

However, China is different.  Though it is governed by those who nominally believe in communism, a product of modern European civilization, China is not under influence of Christian virtue.  Leaders in the Chinese politics and industries do not share basic cultural value with Europe and America.  

As Japan has succeeded in development of technology and economy, it is no wonder that China has also succeeded in these fields, because they are strategists as good as Japanese.  But, China looks being short of some important elements of civilization Japan has sufficiently and Europe and America have fully.

Anyway, as Japanese chess, imported from China, is more complicated than Western chess, Japanese and Chinese can well play with Westerners.

"they marvelled, and glorified God" - Women and Criminals

Around the National Diet Bldg., Tokyo

Women and Criminals

European women and American women are so mean and rotten to the eyes of Muslims.

However, Muslims never laugh at European and American women for their indecent looking.  It is because Europe and America have more economic, political, and military power than Islamic nations.  But since no Islamic women try to look so indecent as European/American women, it is apparent that Muslims despise the European and American culture

Even from a viewpoint of Christianity, today's European and American cultures are rotten;  European and American women expose their skins too much.  It is completely against the teaching of Christ Jesus and God.  Satan controls Europe and America more than Islamic nations.

It is because the Western or global main economic system promotes such indecency among European and American women.  Wealth in European and America is obtained through activities of businesses.  And, businesses earn profits by selling more goods and services.  And the strongest motivation for consumers buy such goods and services is not only needs but also desire.  So, businesses are making consumers' desire increase.  They present advertisement that arouse lust in consumers.  This mood is reflected in behaviors of women.   European and American women are. like businesses, trying to arouse lust among men.  This is completely anti-Christ and also anti-Islam.
Surge in number of female inmates takes world prison population above 10 MILLION
The female prison population has jumped by 50% since the start of the century, according to the report published by the Institute for Criminal Policy Research at Birkbeck, University of London. 
This compared with an 18% increase in the number of male inmates. 
As a result, the proportion of women and girls in the total world prison population has risen from 5.4% in around 2000 to 6.8%.

One bad man can sacrifice a few women or a few female victims on average.  But one bad woman must surely turn one man to a criminal and one child to a future criminal on average.

Put simply, unless all the women in the world become Muslims, God will not bless the mankind with so many criminal records in the past history.

"This is my beloved Son: hear him" - True Target of Satan

Fukushima City

True Target of Satan

There is a story, an American detective story, that a police detective was killed by a man who was so persuaded by the detective's wife.

But to confuse the police, the wife and her lover planned to kill other two police detectives before killing her husband, so that the police would suspect that the killer was a crazy criminal who had a grudge on all of the three detectives.  They thought that then the incident would remain unsolved.

This is an example to carry out a task without letting others know the intention.  Such a tactics can be seen in everyday business.  To hide a true motivation, some people sacrifice innocent parties or launch other operation in different directions to draw attention of people concerned.  It is all to hide their ill motivation.

In the human history, Judaists were attacked, sacrificed, and executed so many times.  The most tragic case of such persecution was carried out by  Nazi Germany before 1945 or the end of WWII.  It was Satan, of course, that was behind the scene.  Satan occupied the minds and hearts of Germans at the time to have them terminate Judaists.

However, Satan hates Christians and Muslims as much as he hates Judaists.  And the populations of Christians and Muslims are far larger than that of Judaists.  Satan must have targeted Christians and Muslims while he was using Nazi Germans to mass-murder Judaists.  Especially, Christianity was based on the teaching of the Son of God, Christ Jesus.  Termination of Christianity must be put the highest priority on.

In fact, after WWII, faith of Christians in Europe and the US has changed drastically.  Commercialism and the market economy have eroded the minds and hearts of Christians.  After WWII, ethics in the European and American societies have deteriorated so much.  They saw the Holocaust and doubted power of God and Christ Jesus, so that they have become less pious and righteous.  The effect of the Holocaust was so devastating in faith of Christians.

Historically, there was no proof that the more Judaists were persecuted, the more Christian faith was exalted.  In Pogroms in Russia, many Judaists were persecuted, but as a result, anti-Christ communists took over power in Russia. After the purge of Judaists from Spain in the late 15th century, the Inquisition  was intensified to persecute those suspected  to be anti-Christ in Europe, damaging faith of Christians.

Put simply, anti-Judaist movement was planned and guided by Satan.  By doing so, Satan was weakening Christian faith secretly.  The more Christians have attacked Judaists, the weaker the faith among Christians has become.

In other words, Satan who wanted to destroy Christianity had occupy the minds and hearts of some Christians to have them hate and persecute Judaists as an effective  means to erode, weaken, and demolish Christianity.

Now Satan seems to be working to have Europeans and Americans hate Muslims.  He must think that the more European and American Christians hate Muslims, the more Christianity will be damaged eventually.

For Satan, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam must be not so different as these religions follow the only one common God.   He must be pretending as if he were not targeting Christianity when he was persuading Christians to attack Judaists and Muslims.
