Hi, My name is Masaru Horie, a Christian Japanese living in BC Canada. I am voluntarily producing visual tools for Gospel Evangelism in Japan.
There aren't many options for visual tools for evangelistic works in Japanese. For example, the distribution of Christian movies in Japan is significantly limited due to the short demand. Due to the shortage of demand, only 1 or 2 Christian movies are distributed in Japan yearly. As a result, missionaries in Japan have to struggle to prepare many materials by themselves. Even though they know many good Christian movies produced in North America, they can not share them with Japanese people in Japan because these movies are not translated/subtitled in Japanese. When they make flyers it is not easy to find free Christian illustrations. The purpose is to assist all Christian workers with visual materials, videos and illustrations.
Personally, I think this movie is one of the best Christian movies ever. Because it perfectly explains the reasons for many of the social problems that are currently occurring around the world. It shows us the reason for the devastation in America's liberal cities such as San Francisco. Another noteworthy thing about this movie is that while regular movies tend to become "outdated" when they get old and become unsuitable for the current situation, this movie is completely the opposite. The closer you watch it to the end days, the more the impact it has becomes stronger. This movie was made in 2002, more than 20 years ago, but if you watch it today, the impact on you will be even stronger than it was then. Please watch and experience it for yourself.
The Japanese subtitle for the Christian TV drama "7th Street Theater" episode 10 "Shelley Part 2" is up キリスト教TVドラマ「七番街シアター」第10話の日本語字幕 7 August 2, 2023
The Japanese subtitle for the Christian TV drama "7th Street Theater" episode 10 "Shelley Part 2" is up now.
The reason I love this drama is that they always prioritize prayer as their final solution to any difficult issues and problems. That is the privilege of Christians and the most powerful and the best solution all the time.
日本語は英語に続きます。 I subtitled "Alison's Choice" which is directed by Bruce Marchiano. He is well known in North America, but I could not find even an article about him in Japanese. I am glad for this opportunity to introduce him to Japanese people.
The theme of this movie is "Abortion", the evaluation of the movie is bipolar, and caused some arguments. The point is whether a fetus is a human or not. People who admit to abortion ignore the human right of the fetus, so their consideration would focus only on the woman who is pregnant. Then what does the Scripture tell us about it? The key verses would be Psalm 139, Jeremiah 1:5, and Proverbs 6. This movie looks at abortion from God's perspective according to the Scripture, please watch.

Japanese subtitle on A Rich Christiano film "A Matter of Faith" 映画「信仰の選択」の日本語字幕版 June 9, 2023
日本語は英語の後に続きます。 Thanks to the generosity of the movie director Rich Christiano, he made his movie available on YouTube, and he allowed me to put Japanese subtitles on it. So that the movie is now available to Japanese people. My translation is trained and endorsed by Mr. Masahiro Ogawa who worked for Warner Bros for 46 years and subtitled more than 2000 movies!
