Japanese  Evangelical Theology


原理主義 (Fundamentalism)

This section of iTheology.net offers the English speaking world a glimpse of one Japanese publication: "Fundamentalism. Japan Evangelical Association Theological Commission Pamphlet 6" (May 2006). 

This publication by JEA (equivalent to the National Association of Evangelicals (US) and the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada) was a response to the American 9/11 tragedy of 2001. iTheology.net offers an English translation of the publicaiton, along with a few responses.

The term “fundamentalism" is most commonly used in this Japanese publication to mean all American evangelicals and fundamentalists. The publication is an attempt to distance Japanese evangelicals from American evangelicals and fundamentalists who who in general are seen to take an unfortunate fundamentalist pro-war stance.
