Japanese Assembling of the Church

I met a sister named Fumie recently through Facebook and Twitter. She is from Japan, although she now lives in the United States.

Yesterday, she asked if she could write about my blog and introduce her readers to it… in Japanese!

Of course, I was honored and said that she could link to my blog and thanked her. Then, I asked her to send me the link when she had written her post, because I had never read anything about myself or my blog in Japanese… not that I could read Japanese even if I had seen it.

So, here is a link to the information about me and my blog in Japanese.

This is what Fumie told me that it says:

While I was looking for some ‘home church’ information on Twitter, I have come across with this particular blog.

The writer of this blog brings very interesting subjects and points in relation to modern churches that I myself often wonder about.

If it was me, 5 years ago, I would not have paid any attention to this blog or read this blog at all due to the differences in denomination and the use of Bible version.

Any questions or uncertainty about church gathering, he searches and bases his belief in the word of God; He has read and studied many different versions of the Bible, yet it is funny to me that I, who only use King James version, often come to the same kind of conclusions as he does. ( you have to understand the fact that I WAS one of those who advertised ‘I am an Independent Fundamental King James Only Bible Believing Christian.)

In short, I think he believes that a place called ‘church’=a place where believers assemble should be the place to encourage and edify one another. As I read his blog, I can tell that he is doing such ‘assembly’.

I become content reading his blog, knowing that someone has spelled out the point much better than I would have. Even though his blog is written in English and I write mine in Japanese, I feel like there is no need for me to restate my point; thus I tend to neglect my own blog.

His blog is easy to read (I think) and I hope you will enjoy reading as much as I do.


Thanks again, Fumie!
