My God, Christ

Ikuro Teshima

Then one of the scribes came and asked Him, “Which is the first commandment of all?” Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is one. And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.'”
Mark 12:29

In postwar Japan, the spiritual deterioration is serious and evil crimes are committed one after another; people have become as cold-hearted as stone. In order for Japan to recover from this spiritual deterioration, it is very important for us to revive religious power more than anything else. For this purpose we should nurture religious minds through the sixty-six books of the Bible, which is the oldest and immortal book of human beings.

I have led a life of faith for fifty years since I came to know Christ at the age of twelve; during those years, the God of the Bible has guided me and helped me overcome crises of my life many times. I have countless stories to tell about Christ my God who redeemed me, taught me, guided me, and loved me for the past fifty years.

Jesus Christ said, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.” As I know no other God beside my Lord Christ, I wholeheartedly love Him.

During the Song Dynasty (960-1279) in China, a Zen master called Mumon preached on a religious mind: “Do not pull another’s bow. Do not ride another’s horse. Do not talk another’s faults. Do not try to know another’s business.”

Likewise, I do not know another God besides Christ; I do not want to talk about the faults of other religions. Neither do I use the bow of other denominations or ride on other churches’ ministry. My revered Dr. Toyohiko Kagawa said, “As far as religion is concerned, a borrowed faith is useless.” And Jesus Christ also said, “Love your God with all your heart.”
