About Shirō

This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God’s child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister. - 1 John 3:10 (NIV)

But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these things defile a man. For from the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, all sexual immorality, theft, lying, and slander. - Matthew 15:19 (NLT)

"Now, those who accompany me in being besieged in this castle, will be my friends unto the next world." - Amakusa Shirō Tokisada: The Siege of Hara Castle, Shimabara Rebellion.

The Temple of Shirō is named in honor of Amakusa Shirō Tokisada, a Christian martyr of Japanese descent. Shirō was a Japanese Christian of the Edo period and leader of the Shimabara Rebellion, December 17, 1637 to April 15, 1638. Shirō was among a group of Japanese Christians who, in 1637, assumed control over Hara Castle during a rebellion against the Shogunate. They mounted a coordinated defense that held off attackers, but the rebel force had no logistical support, their resolve was weakened and they were betrayed from within. Source: Wikipedia.

But because the Holy Spirit guides us in everything we do, We have no such impediment. Jesus en ti confio. 1 Corinthians 12:7-11 (NIV)
