キリストはやはり 高文化の国から来た考え方なので 日本は発展途上で理解しにくいし また、人間みな平等という考え方は 反乱を起こしかねない考え方で
I went to “Hirado Xavier Memorial Church”. There is such a Western-style church in such a rural area.
Hirado is a beautiful island.
Next, I went to “Hirado Xavier Memorial Church”. I mean, it’s quite far to go to “Hirado”. It’s about the same distance as going to Hirado from Fukuoka and going to Hirado from Nagasaki city. From Nagasaki, take the high speed towards Fukuoka, then towards Sasebo, cross the Hirado Bridge and enter Hirado. This is a fairly large island with great views. Hirado Ohashi is a red bridge and I feel like he is something else, but the bridge that he crosses when going from Hirado to Ikitsuki Island is blue, and he is a very beautiful bridge that shines in the blue sky on a sunny day. There are several hidden Christian associations on Ikitsuki Island, and he went to see them as well. It’s really interesting for him to have such a Western-style church in such a rural area. The sea is also very beautiful and he seems to be able to catch anything, so it is the best place for fishing lovers.
Xavier Memorial Church
Immediately after crossing the Hirado Bridge, there is this “Hirado Xavier Memorial Church”. Since this church was built in 1931 and a statue of Xavier was built beside this church in 1971, he is said to be the Xavier Memorial Church.
christianity thwarted by the times
Perhaps because of the times, Christ was called “Yaso”, and Christ was prohibited during the Tokugawa era. It seems that Christ was accepted in the old times of Nobunaga, but I think it was prohibited in the times of Toyotomi and Tokugawa. When I watched NHK’s “Ryomaden” a little while ago, Yaso was said to eat humans and was feared, or rather, the way it was said was terrible.I think it’s a culture unique to Japan in a village society, but what is it? It must have been because it was a terribly discriminatory society like “students, farmers, commerce, and commerce,” but there was no education for the people, and there was no way to understand Christ’s way of thinking, and Nobunaga wanted to change society. Because he was a revolutionary, I think he accepted Christ because he thought seriously about eliminating such a discriminatory society, but I think that’s why Nobunaga was a smart gentleman. It must have been a difficult time for him to survive because humans at that time had a dignity close to that of animals.
high culture religion
Christ is a way of thinking that came from a highly cultured country, so Japan is still developing and difficult to understand.In addition, the idea that all people are equal is a way of thinking that could lead to rebellion, and it is a very attractive way of thinking for an unequal society. If a person with a little bit of intelligence entered there, the country would be turned upside down. I understand, but eventually I realized that Japan was behind, and I changed my mind and tried to enter overseas culture as soon as possible.
A building that loses to the real thing
However, although this building is also a wonderful church that looks great on a sunny day, there is a huge difference in churches in Europe, so I hate to say it, but there are places where I would like it to be a little too simple, such as the Italian association and the French one. Because it’s amazing…
