The idea behind this site is that God loves every culture and He desires to redeem every culture according to its own kind. Therefore we cannot approach other cultures and people with our western mindset, with our western Christian music and manners etc. We have to understand the culture and help Christ to redeem that very culture without destroying its beautiful elements and at the same time as the sons and daughters of the kingdom we have to help a culture to free itself  from practices and rites which are inhuman. My intention here Therefore it is possible to be a Japanese, and be a follower of Christ!

Welcome

My name is Samuel C. Lee. I am president of Foundation University in Amsterdam, I also lecture sociology and contextual theology. For the past 20 years I have been a full time pastor and recently a member of the steering committee of the Dutch National Synod (protestant forum).


I hold M.A. Degree in Sociology of Non Western Societies (Leiden University) and PhD in Intercultural Theology (VU University / Free University Amsterdam). My research areas are Japanese culture & society, Sociology of Religion and especially Christianity in Japan. My goal is to help the western or non-Japanese Christians to better understand Japan for the sake of the Kingdom of God.
