Believe in Jesus Christ with faith alone and be saved, therefore all people will go to Heaven.
In terms of mythology, it’s useful to look into while realizing it’s fake so we can recognize other false ideas as being untrue, like endless torture

Hi, I know me and you have differences, but I am going to ask you a question. How were you exposed to Touhou
A moment ago
So I reply with the following
Hi SailorWriter, good to see you again my friend.
Touhou is nothing more than a mythology, like Greek Mythology. A person can still read Greek Mythology and not believe it. I treat the Touhou Project the same way. I have read some of their literary works, and played their games, and I understand that is fictitious, meaning fake.
Acts 14:11 And when the crowds saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in Lycaonian, “The gods have come down to us in the likeness of men!” 12 Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul, Hermes, because he was the chief speaker. 13 And the priest of Zeus, whose temple was at the entrance to the city, brought oxen and garlands to the gates and wanted to offer sacrifice with the crowds. 14 But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard of it, they tore their garments and rushed out into the crowd, crying out, 15 “Men, why are you doing these things? We also are men, of like nature with you, and we bring you good news, that you should turn from these vain things to a living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them.
We see here that the problem with Greek Mythology is that people worshiped the "greek gods" rather than God. We know that Greek Mythology is false, and Touhou as well, simply because the Bible clearly states that God is one, monotheism.
1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus,
Certainly, there are people who truly believe in false religion aspects of Touhou, like Hinduism, Shintoism, Buddhism, etc. And I rebuke them, and tell them the truth, out of love for the truth. So I go into Touhou communities and evangelize them. And by witnessing to them, I can use my experience having played the Touhou games, for instance, to relate to them better.
The Touhou Project, from a pure gameplay standpoint, is quite fun. A person can still enjoy the game, while realizing that the idols of Touhou are completely fake. Just like how a person can eat food made for an idol, and still eat it, since we know idols are fake.
However, of course, it's your personal choice what things you eat and don't eat. Some people like spicy foods, other people sweets. Love does not force it's way.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way
I remember amongst my earliest experience was seeing videos of a Lunatic run of the 8th entry in the Touhou series.
Touhou Chireiden(Earth Spirit Palace) ~ Subterranean Animism (東方地霊殿 〜 Subterranean Animism)
Of course, I rebuke the religious beliefs of Hinduists and Mormons that include "Animism" in their beliefs, because they falsely teach works salvation
I've made respective Rebukes to those two on my website here:
With idols, it's important that we recognize that they are nothing at all in this world.
English definition wise, fiction is defined as fake. In truth, the Touhou Project is a piece of fiction, it's fake. 1 Corinthians 8:4
This page is a good example, where they list official ZUN stories as fake
(ZUN of course being the pen name for the creator of the Touhou Project Jun'ya Ota)
In terms of playing Touhou, I have Touhou games that I purchased on Steam. When I enjoy the gameplay, I thank the Lord for creating such a fun game. I do not credit the game's creation to idols, nor do I worship those Touhou idols. I attribute the game to the true creator, the Lord of Hosts my friend :biggrin
The keyboard that I typed on, the computer that I use, those things could have been created by atheists, muslims, scientologists and other people with false religious beliefs. I use their tools, yet I rebuke their false religions, with kindness.
Here's also a thread I created with other Christian Universalist friends of mine where we talk more about this concept.

Hope that answers your question my friend, Christ blesses you with love! Have a wonderful day :biggrin
1 Corinthians 15:22 "In Christ shall all be made alive"
Update, got a reply on another post today that I think fits this topic too!
My friend WhiteWings on Tentmaker sent me this interesting article on where the false concept of endless torture "Hell" comes from (here's a hint: it's not from the Bible) http://radical-reaction.com/shepherdsvoice/Hel%20with%201%20L.htm
So reading up on mythology is a good way to prove that Christian Universalism is true too. The truth that Jesus Christ will save everyone because all people will become believers in Christ Jesus with faith alone! :D
