‘I Tell Them About Jesus’ Love’: As Japan’s Suicide Rate Soars, Christians Offer a Reason to Live

  1. Friedrich Nietzsche said "He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how." That God shaped hole inside every human being which yearns desperately for the eternal purpose of life can only be filled by God Himself, and it's the only lasting remedy to the suicide epidemics in the developed world.

  2. Wow. I'm currently working towards becoming a japan English teacher. I'm looking into the state of Christianity in Japan and less than 1% of the population are Christians or have even been presented the gospel.

  3. Liars. Suicide is not soaring, it's actually dropping in Japan according to current data. It's still above average but significantly lower than for many other countries. Also most suicide in Japan is by men for various cultural reasons related to Samurai ways. Japanese women by contrast have a rather low suicide rate compared to other countries.

  4. The Japanese are a sad people at that. When I was there in 2012 I could see it. Legions of men and women walking to work with that blank and emotionless expression. They emit a sense of hopelessness, that deadening of energy, and ossification of the spirit. They are also struggling with a population crisis because there is no interest in love. All these people do is work, go home, and repeat the process over and over. Hell I would kill myself if that was my life.

  5. There is no problem our God cannot solve. And those who put their trust in Jesus Christ will live a victory life.
    More than 20 years ago I have lost my purpose of life and I asked God to take me home.

    Holy Spirit replied me "Give me your life and see what I can do with it".

    I would like to be a witness for Jesus Christ in Japan before Jesus Christ returns.
