Japanese Pastor Publicly Repents for Japan's Past Sins

Teresa Neumann : May 21, 2010  Michelle A. Vu - Christian Today

"Japan repeatedly killed, murdered, stole, robbed, raped—just humiliated her neighbors. Therefore, as a Japanese, I really want to express my feelings of repentance. Not only do I want to repent to countries that Japan invaded and bombed and killed, but also as a Christian I want to really repent towards Israel."

"Japan repeatedly killed, murdered, stole, robbed, raped—just humiliated her neighbors," Oyama said. "Therefore, as a Japanese, I really want to express my feelings of repentance. Not only do I want to repent to countries that Japan invaded and bombed and killed, but also as a Christian I want to really repent towards Israel."

According to the report, mission leaders in attendance were asked to pray to remove anger and bitterness toward others from their heart. Japanese church leaders were specifically encouraged to extend a hand to mission leaders of Asian countries that Japan hurt while they prayed.
