Christian is only 1% in Japan
Before I write my testimony, do you know this fact!?
Of course, this means 99% Japanese people are non-christian.
Also, please let you know this fact.
In Japan, the number of people who commit suicide is the largest in the world
It is really significant for Japanese to tell the Gospel.
Now in Japan, only a little opportunity to think about Gospel.
As a member of Japanese people, if you pray for Japan, I want to say thanks you from bottom of my heart(^O^)
How did I become a Christian?
In Japan, most people (more than 90%) are not interested in religion.
I was one of a such people.
My major is biology, and I wanted to become a biology professor in the future.
When I was a freshman, I was really looking forward to how to teach in a college class.
However, I was knocked out because some professor look down on students and most professor have so many bias.
The first miraculous encounter
I thought that I should not do the same in teaching biology in the future.
So I decided to study religion, which is the opposite of science, to keep my balance as a person and to go to the church.
I belonged to the ESS club (English Social Study), I chose the church that Warren’s meeting in there happened to meet, and I will meet Gil there!
The second miraculous encounter
Gil and I have the same major, and we talked about it as interesting.
Fortunately, he was a believer in Christianity (religion) while studying biology (science), and such a singular existence was close to me.
Many questions appear while I hear teaching at a church.
- Who is Jesus Christ?
- What is God like?
- What is the definition of Christianity?
- What kind of story is the Bible? etc.
I was at a loss for everything I could not understand.
I listened to the story that many encounters and the person had while I asked many Christians. (I write it by a future blog article)
The final obstacle that block my way
Although I thought that I would like to become a Christian, being attracted to something that Christians have
- I live as a Christian
- I live as a non-Christian
I didn’t feel bad either.
It was natural that １ would be better if it was a Christian, and on the contrary if he was a non-Christian, it seems that he had never thought of ２or so.
In the midst of my troubles, I became more and more aware that I was a sinner, that I was an ugly person, and I noticed the presence of Satan(devil) in me.
Satan in Me is pride.
It is a heart that unconsciously compares selfishly and judges that I am superior to the other opponent.
There are so many other examples, but I want to get rid of the Satan!
I became able to think so.
Baptism( Start my Christian life)
And on October 28, 2018, I decided to remove Satan as I was baptized!
I chanted in the water “Satan go away!”
It was clear that I was able to become a Christian, but Satan is not completely gone.
But now I am grateful to Satan!
I realized that it is meaningful for God to do what Satan is in this world as good.
I was able to be a Christian thanks to Satan being in this world!
How to live as a Christian in the future!
I am in the depths, but in the future I want to be a missionary and share the gospel with people all over the world.
However, even my parents who are closest to me now can not convey the gospel, in fact they have been kicked out of my house.
I realized the difficulty of telling the gospel, I would not say that many people want to be a Christian, but I hope that “the moment when you can feel God’s love” will come to many people ”
However, by all means, language skill is necessary to talk to people all over the world.
For that, I will do English training everyday and I will upload the appearance to my blog!
While I go around the world, I will continue to write this blog and I will try communicating with as many people as possible through this blog.
For training in English, write both Japanese and English articles!
The contents are exactly the same, so do not worry.
Just if you do not mind, if I have mistakes in grammar or spelling in English articles, I’d appreciate it if you could tell me.
Let’s grow together with you as a Christian!
Thank you for reading!
