Dear Mr. Adachi,
I have read a good portion of your website and most recently
Christian" response you have posted. I am the younger sister of
Marlena, the person who sent you that e-mail, and have one more question
regarding your standpoints, and a request. I understand your personal views
on the Bible, but the question that is still lingering in my mind (which
I also feel was the original question of that email) is if you are a born-again
Christian. And whether you are or are not, I also wonder if you personally
believe whether the prophicies of the Book of Revelation (i.e. the rapture,
the antichrist, etc.) are true or not.
Please understand that I am NOT trying to pick a fight. Much
of what I am trying to say naturally will sound argumentative when written
out in letter form.
Thank you very much for your time and efforts!

I know you're not looking for a fight, so don't take my response
to your question as a rebuke. It's a sharing of information to, hopefully,
open your eyes to new vistas of insight and realization. I wouldn't bother
to answer you if I was only interested in one-upsmanship or debate.
You're asking the wrong question when you ask me if I'm a
born-again Christian. A "yes" or "no" answer to your
question leads one into a fixed path of structured thought, an inculcated,
contrived, and calculated mind set (perhaps 'mind wash' is more
accurate) that automatically leads one into certain conclusions
and judgments-which is exactly what it was intended to do- about
the person to whom the question is posed.
Well, I'm not going down that road.
It seems like such a simple question, doesn't it? "What's
the Big Deal?" you might say. You're just looking for a simple 'yes'
or 'no' to a question that "is still lingering" in you mind- right?
OK. For starters, your lingering question is based on pure
curiosity of a personal matter that you really have no right to inquire
about or a justified reason for asking in the first place. You're curious,
but in a prying sort of way. I'm not going to throw rocks at you for a relatively
small impropriety, but you should recognize, at least, that you're
asking an inappropriate question.
However, my reason for not answering you directly goes beyond
It's damaging to you, whether you accept that or
not, to pose such questions to people. It's damaging to your soul's development;
to the spiritual development of your heart; and to your capacity to understand,
love, and forgive. It's damaging to your relationship with Jesus and with
Because the pre-programmed response (mind set) which
you already have there sitting inside your mind and heart is ready
to spring forward the moment you hear the word "yes" or "no"
in response to your question.
If it's "yes", then you'll generally heave a sigh
of relief and tell yourself that someone like me could likely be led back
to the Righteous Fold, as it were, given enough time and quoted enough verses
from the Bible-from a reasonably skilled verse "quoter"; say Jack
Van Impe, for example. If the answer is "no", then that's a horse
of an entirely different color.
If the answer is "no", then you're dealing with
a 'unsaved' person; a person who has not 'accepted' salvation through the
Blood of Christ, and we both know that the only route to eternal salvation
is through a personal commitment and relationship with Jesus Christ.
Isn't that so Mariana? Isn't that exactly what you
believe to be the truth of the matter?
How do I know that?
I know that because you've been on the receiving end of Christian
fundamentalist indoctrination. You wouldn't have asked the questions
you did, if you hadn't been exposed to that indoctrination. Of course, you
never thought of it as indoctrination. You were just sitting there listening
to Pastor so and so on TV or in church, bringing you the "Good News"
and the "Word of God" straight from the Bible (and the Pastor)
into your heart and mind for more than a few years I'm guessing. You listened
in the interest of bettering yourself and having a closer relationship with
Jesus. I understand that and I don't fault you for that.
You listened for the best of reasons and you were there to
help save yourself, your family, and to go beyond that-to help save others
in the world who were yearning for the same peace and comfort that you found
in the company of like-minded Christian brothers and sisters. I got all
I know your intentions were good and they were sincere, but
you've been led into a blind canyon by all those fundamentalist
preaching sessions; listening to and absorbing the words of those
preachers, who pretty much led you to the same place-a blind canyon-
the mind set I mentioned earlier.
A blind canyon only has one way out, and
so does the Christian fundamentalist mind set. You're either in or you're
out when it comes to Christian fundamentalism. You're either aboard the
Glory Train or you're not. You're either a Born-Again follower of Jesus,
who's on his way to Glory & Salvation-in the very near future- or you're
not. There's no in-between.
But if you're not aboard the Glory Train, then you
must be one of them-a non-Christian: a Moslem; a Buddhist; a Taoist,
a Hindu, etc or perhaps you're among one of the 'unsaved' wings of Christianity
like Catholics or Russian Orthodox, or Greek Orthodox Christians, for instance.
Is that a fairly accurate assessment of what "you" believe Mariana?
Are you beginning to see where I'm going with this?
Adhering to the fundamentalist party line fundamentally
requires its adherents to be judgmental of others. Judgementalism,
by its very nature, leads one to condemnation of others
for not agreeing with the core precepts of the fundamentalist believers
(in our case, born-again Christians, but it could just as equally apply
to Islamic fundamentalists or Zionist
fundamentalists for that matter).
And now we're getting to the crux of the matter.
Condemnation of others eventually leads to conflict
and strife. Conflict eventually leads to war,
and war leads to unspeakable devastation and the death of millions of people,
most of whom are completely innocent and uninvolved as combatants.
Is this what 'Christianity" should be all about? Judgementalism
Did you hear on the news recently that Pat Robertson said
that a Special Forces assassin squad should kill the President of Venezuela
because it would be "cheaper" than running a war to "take
back" Venezuela from this "dictator"?
How insane do these 'Christian' fundamentalist, British
Israel front men for the New World Order have to get before their trusting
and mesmerized followers wake up to the fallacy of their words and the evil
of their intentions?
P. S. The questions on The
Times, etc are already answered on my web site in a number of places.
Use the search engine and put in the keywords to find those articles.

Having just read the letter to you from Mariana, her question "are
you a born-again christian" and your response to it, it felt it necessay
to come out of my silent corner and share a few things about the 'born-again'
question in general with your readers.
As some of us know, the Vatican has a huge collection of very
old scriptures, some dating back as far as the second century, including
original letters written by the early church fathers like Origen and Hieronimus,
the writings of Francis of Assisi and countless others. These are locked
away from the public for reasons that you and I know and many would not
believe. Now every once in a while it happens that those who do have access
to the scriptures mentioned
feel compelled to tell the public about the vast differences between old
and new, even though it means getting fired instanty.
Some very trustworthy information are available from the daughter
of one of the late presidents of the German Republic, Jutta Ranke-Heinemann.
Having completed her studies as Professor of Theology behind the walls of
the Vatican, she pointed out several inconsistencies in one of her books.
- The quote: "You have to be born again so that you shall be clean"
(which is where the 'born-again Christian' derives from) can be found only
in the very latest versions of the bible. All the older scriptures have
Christ saying : "You have to be born again and again UNTIL you are
So, by just removing two words and changing one, the question to you wouldn't
make any sense at all and the entire belief structure was changed into
a different religion, where you live only once and therefore the membership
to the church is that much more critical for 'eternity.'
Oops, another obstacle. 'Eternity' in our sense didn't exist either in
the languages of old, so she wrote. The arameic word for eternity meant
anything from 'as long as a whole life' to 'a very, very long time.' Of
the 53 times it occured in the scriptures, only once it was translated with
today's 'eternity'. (An eternal hell was simply a better tool to keep the
masses in line than a hell (of guilt feelings) which could be overcome by
repenting and correcting mistakes of the past in another class.
And, since I'm at it -some readers may already have turned off in disgust
anyway - a young mother was called in the old language 'alma' and a virgin
'betula'. Guess what the old scriptures called Mary, the mother of Christ?
And no, I don't think it has anything to do with the divine mission of the
second highest being here on earth, in which I believe in, it's just that
the Creator of the physical laws for our dimension doesn't have to change
his own laws in order to set His plans in motion.
Just thought I'll give you a hand.....
