A Country in Crisis
On a larger scale Japan, with its aging population and an abysmal birth-rate, is finding its ratio of laborers to retirees already unsustainable. With no signs of improvement, the situation will be utterly unmanageable by 2050. This is additional pressure on many families already torn apart by crushing work hours, promiscuity, and an atmosphere of shame-induced stress. Nationwide, a scant 0.6% of the population identifies as an evangelical Christian. Among Japanese teens, 57% have never met any Christians at all. Society desperately needs both the hope found in Jesus and a radical shift to embrace biblical values.
