Anyways, you also mentioned this post on r/touhou
Since I am a Christian, I think it would be interesting to put myself in that situation. A Christian could do a variety of things in Gensokyo, but I have my own specific strategy.
First, I will pray to the Lord for peace. I imagine being thrown into a whole new world may make me anxious, so I would use it as a way to calm me down.
Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
I will then pray to God for understanding. Specifically, am I the only person who was thrown into Gensokyo? As an older brother, I want to make sure that my younger sister is safe, plus my mom and dad too! For this situation, I will assume that it was only me, 1 Christian. (Though I hope my family will be alright taking care of themselves on their own on Earth).
Gensokyo on the wiki is described as the Land of Illusions aka the Land of Fantasy. It’s a good way to tell people that Touhou is a fictional (meaning fake) series.
But the scary thing is... since Gensokyo is the Land of Fantasy, and I, a Christian, am in Gensokyo. Would that mean that my family has forgotten about me? Thus, I will assume that, I’m just an unfortunate human who fell in through the Outside World, transported to Gensokyo. Human beings are not fantasy creatures, yet they exist in Gensokyo, like with the Human Village. As such, we can conclude that there are things in Gensokyo that are truthful (Christianity) and false (Hinduism, Shintoism, Buddhism, other false eastern religion ideas).
As such, I will need weapons to battle against those false religious ideas that the people in Gensokyo could unfortunately falsely believe are true. I know some people might try to immediately find an escape, but in my eyes, what if God sent me there for a purpose? I think, the Lord would send me there to evangelize, to spread the truth of Christianity. That the only way to Heaven is Jesus Christ. Certainly there are sinners in Gensokyo’s, people who have disobeyed the Lord’s laws, who need to be made clean of sin through faith in Christ Jesus. And therefore, all creation will gain permanent life and washed of all death.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have aionian life.
It’s similar to how I’ve gone to places where Touhou fans congregate and spread the Gospel of Universal Salvation through Jesus Christ to them. Thus, I will need to equip myself with spiritual protection in order to go soulwinning, like the verse below mentions.
The Whole Armor of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. 14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. 16 In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; 17 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God
I will do this by finding a writing utensil and paper. I will write down Bible verses that I have memorized, copies not just for myself, but to post around Gensokyo. Maybe I can hang it on a tree, or attach it to a pole, place it inside of a book, or hand it to people. I already do those things in real life already when evangelizing in my own city, so the only difference would be a change in scenery.
In terms of the youkai, from the Touhou games, they have many powers. However, none of them are as powerful as the Almighty Lord.
Romans 14:8 If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.
Whether I’m kept alive or killed immediately upon entry, the Holy Spirit is inside of me, so I will go to Heaven. I have not the spirit of fear, but of love, in me. Eventually, the Holy Ghost will be inside all of people and gain permanent life in paradise.
Joel 2:28 “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh
Overall though, thank you for the messages! These were fun writing prompts to respond to. I like looking at creative works, and I did take some creative liberties for the “transported to Gensokyo scenario”. The Lord of Hosts blesses you with kindness and love my friend SailorWriter :D
