(Autumn Paddy Fields in Japan)


When I put “Kind Japanese” in the keyword field of a certain English search engine of the Internet, it returned 7,290 results.

When I put “Kind American(s)” in Japanese in the keyword field of a certain Japanese search engine of the Internet, it returned 622 results.

One of such Japanese sites is a blog presented by a Japanese young woman.

She studied in the U.S. till July 2007.

She wrote in March 2007 that she met an American professor who was doing research on thoughts and ideologies of scientists having been involved in the Manhattan Project, when she happened to stay in a guest house of a college in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania,

The professor and his wife shared an opinion that those scientists must have felt the pangs of conscience (as they had helped kill hundreds of thousands of innocent Japanese civilians at the end of World War II).

She dared say to them that it must have been an act of racial discrimination that America had used the atomic bombs to the Empire of Japan but not to Nazi Germany, which the liberal couple agreed to.

According to her blog posting, though she felt uncomfortable expressing such a grave opinion of her own to the couple who were kind to her like some other Americans, she allowed herself to add that the atomic bomb attack on Japan had been a crime against humanity.

Then, the American couple nodded.

She wrote that it was always a liberal, highly-educated, and intelligent specialist or expert that took an interest in a foreigner like her from a country or a region which traditionally does not belong to the European Civilization.

Those liberal Americans are grouped into two types.

Liberal Americans who belong to the first group think that the religious right were skillfully mobilized by the Bush Administration to support the Iraqi War. Accordingly they believed (when she met them in 2007) that Mr. Barack Obama would win the Presidential Election in 2008.

Those of the second group think that America is essentially a conservative country with full of people who hate intellectual persons. These liberal Americans are overwhelmed by the persistent mood of the conservatism deeply rooted in the American history.

My concern is of course whom kind and conservative Americans will vote for on the coming Presidential Election Day.

I think they will vote for Mr. John McCain but also Democratic candidates for the Congress.

It is so, since spiritual matters are more important than economic matters.


That is all for today.

There are kind people everywhere, since some people are born kind.

You can meet such good-natured persons even in a big city of China.

And, this week’s invention of mine is a cable car system in a city which is operated over roadways of a city.

It will allow for the best use of empty space over the vehicle road (a Japanese one in the above figure) of a big city along with promotion of sight-seeing.

Joh 11:1 Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.

Joh 11:2 (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)

Joh 11:3 Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.

Joh 11:4 When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.

Who Has Supported the Superpower USA?

(City and Suburb)

Who Has Supported the Superpower USA?

If the U.S. loses respect from all over the world due to this financial crisis and the underlying foreclosure phenomena, what is its status of being the sole superpower on the earth?

Citizens of the Roman Empire never felt a duty to make other tribes and kingdoms prosper along with growth of the Empire.

Yet citizens of the United States must feel a duty to make other countries and regions prosper along with growth of the U.S.

Citizens of the Roman Empire never felt a duty to make peoples of other tribes and kingdoms feel proud of themselves as equal members of mankind.

Yet citizens of the United States must feel a duty to make peoples of other nations and kingdoms feel proud of themselves as equal members of mankind.

As the citizens of the Roman Empire never felt such duties, the Empire collapsed in the due course of history.

If the citizens of the U.S. never feel such duties, the U.S. would collapse in the due course of history.

Just think about it. Why have American citizens been able to enjoy such a huge amount of credit made available to them at lower costs and rates?

It is because Japan has provided big funds to the U.S. financial sector and purchased so many U.S. Treasury bonds in these decades, though China has followed suit in these years.

Without showing any gratitude to global financial supporters, American citizens have been enjoying rich lives leveraging lucrative credit systems which have been supported by huge inflow of money from Japan, oil-producing Islamic countries, European investors, and so on.

As American citizens are not grateful to Japan and other global financial supporters while living in such big houses, we cannot expect them to express their thanks to the God.

The American Dream has been bolstered not by hard working of American people but by extremely large infusion of money from overseas.

Without being aware of this reality, if American voters elect Mr. Barack Obama as their President, potential and underlying problems will not be solved.

In other word, only when American citizens start to express their appreciation to Japan and other global investors, the crisis in the U.S. economy and other problems in the U.S. society will be solved.

Electing an African American as U.S. President alone may be a too easy method of addressing such issues.

The key is respect for God, respect for Japan, and respect for other global financial backers.

Without such respect, Americans look like ancient Romans, since they never respected peoples living in the north of the Alps as well as Israelites.


That is all for today.

It is cloudy and chilly around Tokyo.

Prime Minister Mr. Taro Aso yesterday announced that he would urgently take exhaustive measures to cope with the current financial crisis triggered on Wall Street.

Prime Minister Mr. Aso also said that he would not hold a general election for the time being.

Indeed, if another Great Depression should be induced by this financial crisis, a future textbook of history would read: "American people never ceased their election fever while the destruction was coming nearer in the early 21st century."

It might be better for President Mr. George W. Bush to exercise his power so as to postpone the Presidential Election Day for, say, 100 days, since people are getting too passionate with possible President Mr. Barack Obama just like Napoleon Bonaparte had been frantically welcomed before his 100-day reign in France of the 19th century.

(Do you think that Napoleon ever loved music composed by Mozart, if you are even French?


Joh 10:31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.

Joh 10:32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?

Joh 10:33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.

Joh 10:34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?

Joh 10:35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;

Joh 10:36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?

Joh 10:37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.

Joh 10:38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.

Joh 10:39 Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand,

Joh 10:40 And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John at first baptized; and there he abode.

President Mr. Barack Obama

President Mr. Barack Obama

More than the American people, the Japanese people are concerned with realization of an African American President of the United States of America.

Japanese businessmen usually meet European Americans in their negotiations or cooperation at a higher level of corporate activities.

Japanese elite engaged in the academic field, the media, or any other cultural activities usually meet European Americans in their negotiations or cooperation at a higher level of bilateral activities.

As 65% or so of the U.S. populations is occupied by European Americans, it is very natural.

On the other hand, African Americans only account for 12% of the U.S. population.

Among them, those whose identification as being an African Americans is not linked with the historic fact of slavery and the Civil War must be a minority even among contemporary African Americans.

Then, why do American voters have to choose such a candidate who is categorized into such an exceptional group of the people?

Has the American society come to be truly a colorblind society?

Has the feeling of superiority of European Americans over African Americans vanished away in the American society?

Do European Americans really feel comfortable being surrounded by African Americans or being managed by African Americans?

Most of the Japanese people are really intrigued by the emergence of Mr. Barack Obama as the next U.S. President.

If the American society is not yet fully colorblind, the feeling of superiority of European Americans over African Americans has not yet vanished away, European Americans do not really feel comfortable being surrounded by African Americans or being managed by African Americans, but American voters still like to vote for Mr. Barack Obama, what does it mean?

No matter who a Democratic candidate is in terms of the racial background, the situations in the U.S. must force American voters to choose a Democratic President.

No matter what experiences a Democratic candidate has in terms of political and administrative background, the situations in the U.S. must force American voters to choose a Democratic President.

Then, the situations in the U.S. must be far graver than the Japanese people think and imagine.

Those situations are in fact clearly indicated by the exposed wrongdoings on Wall Street.

Nonetheless, there are some issues casting shadows to the emergence of the first African American President of the United States of America.

(i) Too much reliance of Mr. Obama’s campaign on the Internet and information technologies which often leverage social phenomena abnormally.

(ii) Less concern about reactions various players in the world political and economic communities will produce to see the very different type of the new U.S. President.

(iii) Too much fundamental challenges are left without exhaustive discussions between Republicans and Democrats, since the personality difference between the two candidates is so stark.

[(iv) There is still one thing common between President Mr. Bush and Mr. Obama, which is higher academic background, while Jesus Christ loves more those without much schooling.]

Anyway, the inauguration of the first African American President must owe its realization to the support from poor European Americans the number of which must be 100 million including children and elders.


That is all for today.

But, easy come, easy go.

The Obama boom might stay longer, or it might be gone soon.

Yet after all, the real trend of, and decision by, millions of poor European Americans must be recorded significantly in the history.

All I hope is that such poor European Americans will eventually turn to the God.

It is so, since if one percent of them do so, we can assume that there would be a million or so believers and followers of Jesus Christ in the U.S.

(Election is on locomotion. Don’t you feel so as you observe or report it?


Joh 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

Joh 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

Joh 10:29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.

Joh 10:30 I and my Father are one.

Miracles in Reminiscence

(Two symbols of Japanese autumn)

Miracles in Reminiscence

This spring a great earthquake hit southern China, taking 80,000 or so lives.

Then, the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games was held amid desperate protests of Tibetans.

(There were some signs of ill presage, since two Japanese, former Olympic-gold-medalists in the female marathons could not join the race in Beijing due to bad physical conditions they had suffered in screening races as well as in the preparation training.

Anyway, their absence in the Beijing Olympics race could be regarded as tendering Japan's condolences to Chinese victims and their families of the Great Sichuan Earthquake.)

At the end of the summer, Mr. John McCain’s campaign grew in popularity along with his nomination of a female governor for the vice-presidency.

But, in September, Lehman Brothers went bankrupt, followed by a drastic change in business and management on Wall Street.

Consequently, Mr. Barack Obama’s campaign regained momentum.

Everybody is now anticipating that Mr. Obama will be elected as U.S. President while the global stock markets have fallen into the doldrums where China cannot act as a savior, since it is yen that is appreciated higher than any other currencies, including the U.S. dollar.

In summary, the God looks like having given strong warnings against China, Wall Street and the global money market, and the U.S. Presidential Election.

After all, China would behave reasonably, Wall Street would behave reasonably, and the next U.S. President would behave reasonably.

Then, the year 2009 will not be so bad.

Accordingly, I may further study the glory of the God to be manifested in the near future, no matter what manner Jesus Christ might perform His advent in.


That is all for today.

Jesus Christ actually said that you did not have to be rich, since a man who became rich turned to be a servant of the Devil without exception.

Therefore, nobody must try to earn big money in the money market.

Yet, you may be allowed to earn very small money in NYSE or TSE as long as it is truly a very small amount of money, say, such as a dollar or two per day.

(Personally I like this song, since it is called "La Mer" which is French, isn't it?

Mar 10:29 And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's,

Mar 10:30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.

Money, Technology, and Faith

(Tokyo and the Suburbs in Autumn of 2008)

Money, Technology, and Faith

Last night or early this morning I had a dream, though no French girls were dancing there.

I was talking to Ms. Condoleezza Rice who took her seat in a motor coach. I said something about a crisis or such a situation while she looked cool and smart.

Anyway the era of Mr. Colin Powell and Ms. Condoleezza Rice is about to pass.

Everybody might forget it immediately after Mr. Barack Obama is sworn in.

But there seems to exist one thing common among them: less habitually making fun of others in comparison with European Americans of the same class.

Or, in other word, they look more Christian in comparison with European Americans in the same social class.

Let’s see what an American Christian is thinking about the current financial crisis:
The Last Days
Duncan Heaster

There's a lot of talk about the present financial / liquidity crisis fulfilling Bible prophecy and heralding the soon return of the Lord Jesus Christ. But searching website after website, I couldn't find anyone quoting any actual Bible prophecies that indicate any kind of financial crisis before the Lord's return. Of course the Lord Jesus predicted that one sign of His return would be that people would "hear" all sorts of things that will make their "hearts fail them for fear in apprehension of those things which are coming on the earth" (Lk. 21:9,26). Now that we do see fulfilled, thanks to the unprecedented media explosion and updates on things like global warming, financial problems etc. being beamed onto our screens 24/7. If one only heard the news once a week or even once a month, our hearts would 'fail us' far less. But those days are gone; for even if I don't look at the media, someone else does and in our global village, their reaction ends up affecting me.

So I turned to the Bible, to see whether the financial crisis is predicted; and what the Bible says about wealth in the last days. I found the very opposite to what's being peddled around by the doomsday boys and prophecy hacks. Passage after Bible passage makes it clear that there'll be a time of unprecedented wealth and prosperity just before the Lord's return. I may stand with my back to the world about this, but so what. If that's what Scripture says, let's hear it out and give God's words their true weight:

- Mt. 24:37: "As the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the son of man be". And as Jesus points out, the period before the flood was characterized by prosperity and materialism. There was a sharp increase in population, in arts and technology (Gen. 4:21,22) and urbanization (Gen. 4:17). Job 22:15-18 comments on the people living just before the flood that they cast off all commitment to God and yet God "filled their houses with good things" -exactly the scene today. Note how Jesus observes that Noah's world were totally self-obsessed with their hedonism right up "until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all" (Lk. 17:27). The picture is of the Lord's coming abruptly interrupting a pleasure-drunk world.

- The situation in Sodom just before its overthrow was likewise quoted by the Lord as a foretaste of how things would be before His return. "They (as well as our present world) did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded" (Lk.17:28). Their materialism had the same abrupt interruption as in Noah's time- "But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the son of man is revealed" (Lk. 17:29,30). The suggestion seems to be that the people of Sodom were mindlessly doing their thing right up to the point of Divine intervention. Their obsession with daily activities without an awareness of God was as bad as their other sins; a point we would do well to be aware of. However, their eating and drinking must have been to gross excess- Ez.16:49 defines " the iniquity of Sodom" as being " fullness of bread" among other things. "They bought, they sold" suggests that Sodom was a major trading centre, rapidly increasing in wealth; " they planted, they builded" (Lk.17:28) implies a real boom town. Such success resulted in the people being proud, arrogant and of course sexually perverted (Ez.16:49,50). It is these aspects of Sodom which are so precisely matched by our self-centred, money mad world.

- The descriptions of 'Babylon' in Revelation 18 are replete with reference to Sodom (1). This latter day world system is likewise characterized by fantastic wealth and opulence. Rev. 18:11-19 prophesies a heartfelt lament from the unbelievers at how such great prosperity and industry had been brought to nothing in a moment by Christ's return. Some Bible prophecies (e.g. Ez. 38:12) speak of how the wealth of the latter day world will be given over to God's people at Christ's return- the wealth is there in the world at the time of His coming!

- James 5:3 warns the last generation of believers against the absurdity of heaping together treasure in "the last days". If Christ is about to return, why give your life to getting rich just before He comes? The suggestion seems to be that there will be the opportunity for believers to amass wealth immediately prior to the Lord's return.

- Laodicea, the last church addressed by the Lord Jesus in His letters, has been seen as symbolic of the latter day church. And they were characterized by being "rich and increased with goods" (Rev. 3:17). "Increased" suggests an increase in wealth for them in the last days.

- There are at least four predictions that in the final "day of the Lord", ultimately revealed when Christ returns, people will finally realize that their wealth has not been able to save them (Is. 2:20; 31:7; Ez. 7:19; Zeph. 1:18). They are pictured as throwing their silver and gold to the animals in the face of the awesome revelation of God's glory upon this earth. They obviously have that wealth prior to His coming to be able to do that with….

As you can read the banner of this EEE Reporter blog, since I started this blog in the spring of 2005, I have been giving a warning against the abnormal pursuit of wealth observed in the American society. It is because such a biased quest of wealth really looks like a phenomenon which was predicted to happen in the end of a certain period of history.

The last thing we have to face in a destined fiasco of this financial frenzy must be a highly religious matter.

For some believers, Jesus Christ in person might come again on this earth to save them.

For some pious, poor people, Jesus Christ might just send His Angel in a human figure.

For some ordinary people, Jesus Christ might just perform a miracle from Heaven above.

For villains, oh, I cannot tell and hope anything in this context.

But, look back to the last Global Great Depression which started in 1929, and then you would see that Christianity fairly revived then so as to save many poor Americans spiritually. It also led to establishment of various social and administrative systems planned to help and save poor citizens financially and economically.

Domestically, the socialist fundamentals set during the era after the Great Depression survived until the era of Reaganomics in 1980’s.

In other word, the social and administrative reformation introduced after the Great Depression before WWII lasted for 50 years until the advent of computer-based multiplication of wealth in the money market in 1980’s.

Since then, computers and the telecommunications technology have so developed as we see today along with inventions of Intel CPUs and Microsoft OS.

However, today, development of computers and the telecommunications technology seems to reach a ceiling.

Today’s technologies still cannot allow a computer to offer users a definitive answer to such a question as to what the most profitable money trading is.

Indeed, a financial crisis must come before technology develops to the extent to being able to offer a definitive answer to such a question as to what the most profitable money trading is.

Otherwise, every computer user will try to exploit the power of new computer technologies in the 21st century so as to know definitely what the most profitable money trading is.

Before mankind is equipped with such a super technology, Jesus Christ must interfere with the human world.

It is because such a super technology will extremely endanger the human society, allowing for super fast transactions of trillions of dollars all over the world through simple operations by every Internet user.

We may find some descriptions about such a technology in the Bible.


Now, you know it is the money market that counts.

But, the money market is sustained by the advanced technology.

Yet, faith and love must control development of the technology.

When love and faith get weaker, technology can be abused for the sinful money market, resulting in an uncontrollable financial crisis eventually.

Therefore, a Religious Revolution must come before a further technological revolution in the 21st century, which I must tell some key figures, such as the Secretary of State, and those who can interview them.

(I think the world can quench this hot financial crisis eventually. However, there is something more difficult to quench. )

Mat 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Financial Crisis and Faithful Christians

(Tokyo Station)

Financial Crisis and Faithful Christians

Now, you must ask, “Lord, what is all this for?”

Then, you have to find the answer: “It is for glory of the God to be manifested.”

Let’s see what the Pope said and what an American Christian said:

VATICAN CITY – Pope Benedict XVI says the global financial crisis show the futility of money and ambition.

Benedict says that "now with the collapse of big banks we see that money disappears, is nothing and all these things that appear real are in fact of secondary importance." He urges those who build their lives "only on things that are visible, such as success, career, money" to keep that in mind.
The pontiff was speaking Monday as he opened the works of a meeting of 253 bishops at the Vatican.
Benedict says "the only solid reality is the word of God.";_ylt=A0oGktt7JwVJFjMBYUdTDqMX;_ylu=X3oDMTBvdmM3bGlxBHBndANhdl93ZWJfcmVzdWx0BHNlYwNzcg--

The Pope should have showed his love to victims of the Wall Street debacle and his love to the enemy of those victims, since the Pope must have been one of victims.

A Christian View of the Economic Crisis
Is the economy really driven by greed?

Al Mohler | posted 9/29/2008 10:03AM

Christians should think seriously about this economic crisis and ponder what it would mean to come to a Christian understanding of what it means to be participants in this economy. As Adam Smith recognized, the economy is a moral reality. Human beings actualize their moral selves in making economic choices and through participation in the economic system — and we are all participants.

Indeed, one of the defining differences between the current crisis and the crisis of the 1920s and 1930s is that the vast majority of Americans are now, in effect, investors. Our retirement accounts are, by and large, mingled with the investments of the titans of industry. Through their pension funds, school teachers are investors right alongside Warren Buffet. This was not the case in the run-up to the Great Depression. We all want and need the stock market to do well, and the outcome of any market crisis effects both Bill Gates and the worker in the local medical clinic…

The Bible honors investment and thrift, and Christians must be wary of the impulse for short-term gains and pressure for instant profit. Over the long-haul, the entire economy must prosper if the vast majority are to do well and realize a responsible gain….

Under the expression of Christ-recommended investment, American Christians are doing the opposite thing to what Jesus Christ recommended.

Jesus’ investment means the investment for others so as to make others happy.

American Christians’ investment is intended to make themselves happy, which is anti-Christian.

In this context, it is truly the end of justice in the Vatican and the Christian Nation the United States of America.

If the Pope loses ability to put himself in the same status as a poor man, he cannot be qualified as a follower of Jesus Christ anymore.

If American Christians still think about only themselves, neglecting poor people in the world who are being badly affected by this Wall Street debacle, they are no more Christians at all, since even followers of the Devil would use terms in the Bible following the interpretation extended by the Devil.

In summary, the Pope should become one of poor men; American Christians should worry about poor people in the world but not themselves.

Then, glory of the God will be manifested.


It is said that investors are selling securities and bonds contaminated by, or linked with subprime loans, to secure dollars at hand.

And then, it is said that they are selling dollars to get and keep yen, since Japan is the least contaminated by, and linked with, devils, fiends and goblins on Wall Street.

However, if Americans and Europeans cannot be free from conventional views and thoughts of Christianity used in justification of their financial activities for their own profits, they would not be truly saved by Japan without mentioning the God.

On the other hand, if Japanese cannot realize the defect in religious paradigms of the Vatican and American Christianity, they would not be able to save Europe and America (and China has never recognized a concept of saving the world).

That is why I am telling you that those who have belonged to the Vatican or Christian communities in America and Europe should listen to EEE Reporter.

It is so, since Japanese in any political parties cannot ultimately enjoy a status more than the one of being a blessed outsider from European/American Christianity.

(Between the Kingdom of God and Wall Street, there might be a lane where a tune of Mozart is drifting.


Mat 10:26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.
