As you can see from the graph, I hitchhiked in 2016 much more than in 2015! It was my second best year since keeping records from August 2, 2004. If you think in miles, just divide the distance in kilometers by 1.6. Including what I kept track of in 2004, … Continue reading →

I read on a blog that the Pantheon Desktop was available for Fedora, and that it was a simple GUI that imitated the Mac OS interface. This is what I did to install it: 1. After logging into root with Terminal, I used gedit to create a file in /etc/yum.repos.d … Continue reading →

This is all of chapter 1 of Fifty Years in the Church of Rome by Charles Chiniquy My father, Charles Chiniquy [pronounced, “Chi-ni-quay”], born in Quebec, had studied in the Theological Seminary of that city, to prepare himself for the priesthood. But a few days before making his vows, having … Continue reading →
The excepts below are from chapter 58 of Charles Chiniquy’s book, “Fifty Years in the Church of Rome.” Abraham Lincoln had not only defended me with the zeal and talent of the ablest lawyer I have ever known, but as the most devoted and noblest friend I ever had. After … Continue reading →
This was taken from the first part of chapter 5 of Fifty Years in the Church of Rome By Charles Chiniquy. The day following that of the meeting at which Mr. Tache had given his reasons for boasting that he had whipped the priest, I wrote to my mother: “For … Continue reading →
Forward from the Webmaster: I am sure you have heard of the “conspiracy theory” that the moon walk never happened. If you are of a different opinion, would you please bear with me and read what Bill Cooper had to say about it? Milton William “Bill” Cooper was a former … Continue reading →
Today I read the biography of Dorothy Day, (November 8, 1897 – November 29, 1980) an American journalist, social activist, and Catholic convert. (Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dorothy_Day) I wondered, “Why would anybody who was raised a Protestant be attracted to the Roman Catholic Church to the point of embracing it and its … Continue reading →

Some of the topics: The complexity of living systems The testimony embedded within the fossil record The historical and cultural proofs … Continue reading →
By Susan Weeks Yes, I am glad that Hillary was not elected. And yes, I will pray for Trump. But if you think He was put in the presidency because He has God’s FAVOR, then I think you don’t know much about him. Trump was not an unknown or a … Continue reading →
n November 5th I boarded a train in Aomori City on my way to Misawa. There were two Caucasian looking young ladies sitting in the train car. I sat down next to them and asked where they are from. If I was in a metropolitan area like Tokyo, I probably … Continue reading →
By David J. Meyer (A True Story) This is a testimonial from a Christian pastor who was raised by a family that practiced witchcraft. Witchcraft is very real but greatly misunderstood. I know because witchcraft goes back on the paternal side of my family for over five generations to Chesterfield, … Continue reading →
This study is a “Readers Digest” version of a longer paper that addresses the topic in a fuller context. Hopefully, nothing of critical importance will be lost as a result of this reduction. I ask the reader to carefully read the preceding chapters (chapters 1-7) before considering the text in … Continue reading →
The phrase “the covenant” occurs 106 times in 102 verses in 63 chapters and 25 books of the King James Version of the Bible. The word “the” is a definite article which is used to denote a proper noun. Therefore in every case “the covenant” is used in Scripture, it … Continue reading →
On September 17th, 2016, I hitchhiked from the crossroads of Route 345 and Route 7 near Gatsugi Station in Murakami City in Niigata Prefecture all the way to Aomori City in a single car! This is a distance of about 400 kilometers or 250 miles. I am 66 years old … Continue reading →

“And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.” (Matthew 17:2) “…and he was transfigured before them. And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them.” (Mark 9:2, 3) … Continue reading →
The following section is from my good friend David Nikao’s website. 1st Seal – The white horse represents the conquering Roman Empire, from 96 – 180 A.D., as it was a time of its greatest expansion and their military conquests were celebrated by riding white horses in their victory parades. … Continue reading →
Kent Hovid’s answer is so good, I transcribed it. You’re welcome to print it out. All right, your question, “Where did God come from?” assumes that you’re thinking of the wrong, obviously displays that you’re thinking of the wrong God. Because the God of the Bible is not affected by … Continue reading →
As one begins his search for Truth buried within the pages of Holy Writ, his humanity and finiteness abruptly comes into focus when confronted with the unfathomable depths of God’s wisdom. God revealed this truth to the prophet Isaiah when he said: “For as the heavens are higher than the … Continue reading →
I hope to point you to books written by good and God fearing men and women, authors who have done much investigative research in order to discern truth from the lies fed to the world today by the power elite. The purpose is to give you an education you will hardly find anywhere else. Knowledge is power! The Bible in Hosea 4:6a says, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: If you want to study about the New World Order conspiracy, don’t just watch Youtube videos about it, read some books! “What books?” you ask? You can start with the list of books on this website.
I recommend 16th to 19th century authors and a couple of early 20th century authors such as Jeremiah J. Crowley and L. H. Lehmann. Their books contain the real history of the author’s day, and not mere school textbook history which is often biased by the educators who wrote it. For example, on this site you can learn the facts about Abraham Lincoln’s assassination, and who really was behind it based on testimonials of people who actually knew Lincoln face to face such as Charles Chiniquy who wrote ““Fifty Years in the Church of Rome” which is on another website I linked to. There is only one fairly recent book I recommend which was published in 1999, “Rulers of Evil” by F. Tupper Saussy. He correctly identifies the problem and what to do about it.
What I am doing now
Last year in 2016 I hitchhiked to various parts of Japan, specifically to Aomori Prefecture, the Kanto area (Tokyo, Saitama, Tochigi and Chiba), Nagano Prefecture and the Kansai area (Osaka & Kobe) to work on various job to earn money to support myself and pay for the hosting of this website. As I sit next to the driver who picked me up, I share with him or her the Gospel of salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ. Unlike North Americans or the average native English speaker, most of the Japanese people have never heard it even once in their lives.
This year in 2017, except for a trip to the Osaka area, I’ve been home in Niigata city recovering from an prostrate gland affliction and working on my other website, Deep Truths. I am hoping and praying 2017 will be a year of new beginnings for me and greater fruitfulness for God’s Kingdom. I may leave leave Niigata which has been my home since 2002 to go to greener pastures and have more opportunities to share the Gospel with the Japanese. From February 2nd., I began working on translation of a tract from English to Japanese. You can read the tract from this link.
