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 →
My name is James Arendt but some people also know me as “James Japan.” The photos above are just a few of the thousands of kind Japanese people who have picked me up when traveling by hitchhiking. More about me. See also the site mission statement.
My good friend Jim Gibson sent me his book, An Appeal to Reason. It’s a great read about examining the evidence of origins in the evolution versus creation debate. 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 →
This is the story of when Japan rescued Polish orphans from Siberia at the end of World War One. I translated it from Japanese to English from the YouTube with the help of my Japanese friend Yoko Ishikawa: The untold story of why Poland is friends with Japan! Praise to … 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 →
Those who may be football enthusiasts will probably recall a famous Minnesota Viking whose name was Jim Marshall. While famous for many feats, his most memorable feat was accomplished in 1964 when he ran for a 66 yard safety, the wrong way! In life, we need to make sure that … Continue reading →
Dear reader, For years I have used inexpensive web hosting for my websites. It’s called “shared hosting”. I am paying about $70.00 US per year for this website. But unfortunately, this site crashes often. People often come to the site and they see the framework but no content! The home … Continue reading →
To many, the God of the Old Testament appears to be vengeful and cruel. This has been the accusation of the atheist and agnostic. Even many Christians can’t seem to reconcile the goodness of God (which they have experienced in their hearts) to that which they have read in the … Continue reading →
Approximately three months after Jesus had raised Lazarus from the dead, Jesus and the disciples went to Bethany, the home of Lazarus, Martha, and Mary. This was the beginning of the Passion Week, the last week of Jesus’ life leading up to the crucifixion. As the news spread of Jesus’ … Continue reading →
Most “prophecy teachers” today place the battle of Gog and Magog just before, or at the very beginning, of the Tribulation Period. Others, however, have the battle of Armageddon first and the battle of Gog and Magog as the final conflict. Of course, being the contrarian that I am, I … Continue reading →
I thought this was funny and hope you do too. George W. Bush really did say these things in speeches! See: http://www.snopes.com/politics/bush/piehigher.asp Make the Pie Higher by George W. Bush I think we all agree, the past is over. This is still a dangerous world. It’s a world of madmen … Continue reading →
By Jim Gibson The book of Hebrews has language that seems to be very “Pauline.” Because of this, I once believed that the apostle Paul must have been the author of this important New Testament document. I’ve since changed my opinion on this based on the following verses: “How shall … 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
This year of 2016 I’ve been hitchhiking 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 my spouse 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.
