[Disclaimer Touhou is a fictional series]
HSong (me) says Oh yeah, I saw that your profile picture before was the PC-98 version of Yuuka Kazami! Oh, and her PoFV theme is very catchy, the trumpets sound really good!
Yep, if I saw her I would be careful around her. Even though her ability is manipulating flowers, she used a huge one to destroy a whole shrine.
Luke 12:27-28 Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 28 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith!
Though, the Lord is the true manipulator of flowers. He clothes the flowers with many different beautiful colors and shapes! How much more will He clothe the whole world with His grace, and all will have their robes be made clean from sin. Psalm 102:26 :D
Sailor Writer says “I've something to say, I want to make a Touhou fanfic, where the main characters are Christians, and I want it to be as epic as possible. Do you like read about one of the characters?”
I would be very interested in reading that Touhou fanfiction! I mentioned before what sort of actions a Christian could do if I was suddenly transported to Gensokyo, so that could be a good writing prompt.
I think it would be interesting to feature the fictional (fake) Touhou character Utsuho "Okuu" Reiuji.
You mention you want to make it epic. I think if there was a threat of a nuclear bomb going off I think that would make things very intense. The Christian could negotiate with Okuu to stop her from launching atomic weaponry that could destroy Gensokyo and convert her to Christianity. Her location on the wiki is the "Hell of Blazing Fires", should be Sheol/Hades technically, but, you could save her from that. Hence it now being the "Former Hell of Blazing Fires". Convert her from a "hell raven" to a "raven".
Luke 12:24 Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them.
One of her backgrounds features a real photo of a cat on trefoil abandoned city of Pripyat, the town created for the Chernobyl workers in Ukraine. Possible reference to how cats are now living in the ghost town after evacuation. Also possible reference to something called the "Black Bird of Chernobyl" from Touhou wiki.
I say this because she reminds of Wormwood from the Bible.
Revelation 8:10-11 The third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many died from the water, because it was made bitter.
The Ukrainian word for Artemisia vulgaris is chernobyl (Ukrainian: чорно́биль, romanized: chornobyl', lit. 'black herb'). There was the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster where due to radioactive fallout, environment was made "bitter" in a sense. Towncenter of Chernobyl, there's even a memorial with the wormwood star where an angel is blowing a trumpet. Some could have a dispensationalist futurist view of Rev, but I'm personally a preterist.
You are putting your faith into practice. The fact that you're here talking to me about Christianity, and incorporating it into fandoms like Touhou, shows that you are indeed putting your faith into practice. The text of these conversations serves as proof of that. [We are saved by faith alone in Christ, all people will be permanently saved thus]
Matthew 18:20 For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”
Both of us are here, gathered in the name of Christ. Even though it's online, we're here spiritually together.
Speaking of spirit, faith alone in Christ is the seed, and the Holy Spirit is like the tree that grows afterwards which produces fruit, good works. Works salvation is false, good works do not save us. Rather, they are evidence that we are already saved. And we cannot lose our salvation, as who can remove the Holy Ghost, God, when He dwells inside someone?
Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
Think of a tree in the summer time. It can grow many fruit. When times are good (economic boom, vacation, relaxing moments), it can be easier to have joy, to be patient with others and to be kind. However, then comes winter, where the trees may not grow fruit at that time. When times are bad (economic recession, working overtime, school stress, world war 3, climate change, natural disasters, high unemployment, mass violence, the state of the world right now), it can be harder to be gentle when you're already under so much pressure. How difficult it can be to be at peace to those who persecute us Christians during these troubles.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
Yet, the seed has already been planted. Indeed, a person had faith alone in Christ. The Holy Ghost, the Lord upholds that tree, nothing will uproot it. Faith = faith. Seed = seed. If a seed is planted in the winter or summer, it is still a seed. Faith in hardship or good times is still faith.
Like the fictional (fake) Touhou game Phantasmagoria of Flower View, there are seasons where the flowers may be seen glittering oh so wonderfully in the sunlight yet other times where they are completely covered by snow.
There are times, the summer, where due to the external environment you will be able to put your faith into practice. There are other times, the winter, where you will not be able to put your faith into practice. Your faith in Christ is your faith that permanently saved you. No matter the temperature, the Holy Ghost will always be by your side, always. That is guaranteed.
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
