We easily misunderstand the Bible in wrong ways if we interpret it according to the letter and not to its intention.
The belief “the Bible is the ultimate” as American evangelicals have has only been produced fanatics.
You cannot accept it as true that God opened the donkey’s mouth and it protested Balaam for hitting her three times(“Balaam and the donkey”).
In the old testament era, people believed that the earth was flat and no one knows it was sphere.
You cannot accept the view of the world that people believed God existing in the clouds above.
That is the reason why Jesus ascended to heaven.
Who could ever believe that snakes or donkeys speaking ?
It might be okay to believe in that way back then, but today, we can preach the existence of God and faith in Him.
This is the time to preach God’s true mind.
The failure of Jesus’s Second Coming, especially after 1986, not only caused disruption of the laws of salvation but failed End Time Prophecy to the present day.
It had lasted only for 4 years since Jesus descended from heaven again for all the heaven’s solid combination beyond religions.
There are a lot of people who do not aware of the fact in the world even though it is obvious for the people who have been pursuing the truth in Japan.
In my opinion, we should tell the truth for these people who believe in the second coming of Jesus in western countries.
Yahweh also descended from heaven. “Moses,” he said
“He started to sacrifice sheep and goats to me.”
“I did not recall if I communicated with him about it, and it turned out to be Satan who told him to do that.”
There is indeed the scene shown in “the burnt offering” that Moses misheard Yahweh in the old testaments.
There are not a little of mishearing in the Old Testament.
There is a contradiction in the biblical truth since the belief of this era was more based on the way people wished God to become.
In Leviticus or Deuteronomy, for example, God profusely ordained the death of people. If we are following what is written in there, how could we deny the death penalty?
God said to stone her to death.
According to the Bible, as God ordained killing people, it will be “sin” if we do not kill a criminal and live benevolently.
It would be sin if Abraham chooses his love of son against God’s will, although He told Abraham to offer his only son for a burnt offering.
Only God can make a judgement about biblical sin but human.
Although this is true, probably because of the passage of time, it has caused misunderstandings now a days.
It is certain that God but we judges between right and wrong for all eternity.
The universe in front of us, that is, God judges Sin forever.
Development of the Son of God is “what God only expects.”
We shall achieve “what we expect” only when each of us accomplish what God expects.
Main reason of the world’s corruption is that we are only trying to achieve “what we expects” but “what God expects.”
Expectations of both God and us have a very slight difference. However, we are demanding only for their benefits such as:salvation, peace, desegregation, national interests, extinction of the inferno and nonviolence without achieving what He expects.
Nonviolence without any development.
Peace without any development.
Segregation without any development.
We call it “a master thief of the universe.”
This is called “zoku(a bandit)” in Zen sect.
They say “Zoku, zoku, go away.”
The universe is both God’s expression and God’s temple.
“Heaven” is God’s mind and “earth” is God’s body.
They shall forever be one.
People without faith are trying to skim profits as a thief robs a purse in spite of living in the God’s universe.
They say “Go away, you bandit” in Zen.
It has to be God’s ultimate law being preached since “complication of the law” is our mission.
Although there are certain trends of abolishing death penalty in European countries, christian countries contradicts the Bible since it says God ordained killing people.
Humans became very selfish supporting this movement abolish ing the death penalty.
There are many people supporting the death penalty in the East, not to mention in Japan.
How should we face this in biblical truth?
To put it simply, we can say that civilization supporting the death penalty is immature and civilization against it is mature.
People who support the penalty are who support immaturity of human life, and also there will be a criminal carries it as long as we are immature.
There will always be a victim after a serious crime. People consider that a murderer has to be dead when they think about fair justice between them and that is why people support the death penalty.
People feel unfair and miserable the murderer not to be executed.
That is why people in the East advocates the death penalty.
Main reason why people accept the death penalty is immaturity of human life.
A guilty man commit crimes for his benefits and pleasure because he is immature.
After crimes, there is a victim.
People think the guilty man has to be adjudicated fairly.
It might be okay to support the idea if human is immature forever.
There would be some people who continue to commit serious crimes because of their prematurity.
And that we tend to see that the death penalty is reasonable.
Then why is there the universe? Why does human live forever?
God never created the universe for leaving human life immaturely.
If we call immaturity as ”eternal premise,” the immaturity will continue to provide criminals who deserve to be dead.
Immaturity is far from God’s mind and close to God’s body.
Immaturity is far from justice and close to benefits.
Immaturity is far from the absoluteness and close to the relativity.
This is what immaturity is from God’s point of view. The universe decides if our humanity is mature and immature.
We cannot support the death penalty if we are the sacred God’s children.
There will naturally be no death penalties once serious criminals are no longer exist as our life develops and improves through the eternal time.
This is the destiny of the God’s children facing Him.
The more we are enlightened, that is, the more we become close to God, the less serious criminals exist.
So that there are no need of the death penalty any longer.
This means that God does not consent the world of killing people or the death penalty.
The penalty is only an imperfect system created by our immaturity.
God does not consent the death penalty if it ends with human’s development and improvement.
You can support it if you are immature forever.
However, considering the purpose of the universe and God’s will, you would never be able to support the death penalty.
Though the humans are premature, in the historical directions, we need to move into a direction abolishing the death penalty.
That is to say, the direction of awareness and maturity.
It is not impossible to understand supporting the death penalty, however, in that case, we have to be immature for good and we lose our purpose through the eternity of time.
The existence of the universe shows that God does exist and there is no room for argument.
The universe is God’s body and the sacred place.
As long as the universe exists, God shall exist for all eternity.
There is no room for argument.
We, God’s children, must move into the direction of awareness and maturity.
God’s order of killing in the old Testament was a temporary expedient.
It is the same as the death penalty today.
Orientals support it and say “kill the criminal.”
This is the same as God said “stone her” in the old Testament.
We do not dare to say the order is evil, because it is a limited good, but it will be when we make it limitless.
We will have to support the death penalty forever.
We, living as god’s children, cannot consent that.
There are no need of the death penalty once we enlightened and move toward God.
However, human life close to God’s body, materials and results often claim abolishing of the death penalty in order to obtain only the result which is the world of no death penalty without faith.
This idea makes the world worse.
Egoism will increase to an unlimited extend and also the evil will present conspicuously ugly aspects when we do not execute criminals with no reflection.
As I already mentioned it, “Heaven” is development of the human life and “earth” is abolition of the death penalty and they shall forever be one.
But we tend to break their relations off and put “earth” namely, the abolition of the death penalty , on “heaven.”
This is so-called idolatry.
Also there would be a problem concerning if people intend to support the penalty even if we are developed outstandingly or not.
The abolition of the death penalty in Europe is antithesis to the supports of the penalty in the East.
Letting human be immature does not correspond with the purpose of creation of the universe.
The universe created for the development of human life and is the school where we aware the God’s mind.
Which means that the development of human life is major premise for the purpose of creation of the universe.
Therefore, as a result of it, the death penalty will be abolished.
As we follow the God’s mind, the penalty will be abolished eventually.
Again, “Heaven” is enlightenment and “earth” is the abolition of the death penalty and they shall forever be one.
The conclusion and the direction in Europe is rather correct.
The abolition of the death penalty in Europe, however, tend to be claimed only for the result without faith.
This is a legality good which Kant advocated and it is fake.
They only aim at the abolition of the death penalty and they just want the result. That is why it religiously corresponds to idolatry which worships the God’s body.
Even we look at this favorably, it is a good resulting in a metaphor, benefits and materials, in short, a pious good.
Since these do not corresponds to infinity, the East supports the penalty as antithesis to them.
Expediently peaking, there is both good and a problems in both Europe and the East.
The problems caused in order to have less faith and less enlightenment in God.
This is not right saying the abolition of the death penalty as we do in Europe or supporting the penalty with eternal immaturity as we do in the East.
“Heaven” is enlightenment and “earth” is the abolition of the death penalty.
People in Europe and the East break relations between both “earth” and “heaven” and it caused problems.
We tend to address supporting or denying it in “earth” with no “heaven” as faith in God and development of human life.
Lack of enlightenment of “heaven” is simply lack of faith in God.
Lack of faith creates meaningless argument and nonintersecting parallel problems.
This is a problem of the distance between God’s mind and human’s.
This is pointless trying to abolish the death penalty or supporting it at all without knowing God’s mind.
That is same as aiming at or denying wealth is no solution to problems.
Immaturity of every human creating all the problems of human being and the world should be into the middle of the extremes.
In short, immaturity shall not be a purpose or not be denied.
What we ought to do is to be in the middle of the extremes.
We cannot solve problems and eliminate our immaturity, even though we aim at it or deny our immature reality.
This is the way to spiritual enlightenment being into the middle of the extremes as we do not aim at the immaturity or deny it.
We cannot build the kingdom of God and be enlightened when we are immature or deny our immaturity.
If so, being in the way to spiritual enlightenment is the only way to solve the immaturity of human life creating all the problems of human being and the world.
There is no way other than realizing the God’s mind from committing your mind, spirit, thought and power.
kening of the “true self” after all—Kitaro Nishida
It might be okay to support the death penalty within a finite range back in the old era as God ordained the murder, but today, it is not forgivable.
You cannot take it as true in the present era that God ordained the murder. If you believe that as it says, there will forever be the death penalty in the world.
Today, we can preach the God’s true mind and faith in God.
Therefore, “complication of the law” has to be made.
