Honmichi also known as the original way was founded by former Tenrikyo member Onishi  Aijiro who supposedly was appointed by the kami of truth Kanrodai-Sama to be a tenkeisha or revealed one. Anyway his calling is like that of many other spiritual or holy men who make claims as being a divine mediator and revelator of ultimate truth but apart from his self-proclaimed status or appointment he has failed to substantiate this honorary position of greatness. Moreover Tenrikyo was not convinced of this either as they had him expelled nor was the emperor who had him imprisoned.

In essence his message is not the really the original way as it didn’t radically depart from Tenrikyo scriptures and it also carries with it an overtone of Christian values. Its similarity to biblical teachings or themes is stated as believing that mankind is corrupted with evil as infecting the mind but among Christian believers it also affects the whole person whether it be described as the mind, heart, body, soul and spirit of the individual and therefore mankind needs to be renewed or regenerated by God as bringing a person into God’s will. Moreover the sinful nature of man is like an evil force of temptations that has brought about a curse in leading us away from Gods perfect plan and purpose . However in Jesus the good news is that God gives a person an escape route to endure whatever trial, tribulation or temptation that they might be facing, 1 Corinthians 10:13 

In its apocalyptical and millennial views, Christianity like Honmichi first sees a further degeneration of society before getting to the light at the end of the tunnel however what sets it apart from this movement is how and by whom it will have its futuristic fulfillment in regards to the end times. For Honmichi mankind is responsible to establish  a paradise on earth as living together in peace and harmony yet it is impossible to subjugate everyone to this philosophical and religious view as there will always be rebellious creatures who are opposed to God and thus it will take God not mankind to directly intervene as bringing about an everlasting peace as judging and removing these unwilling  dissenters otherwise there will continue to be this ongoing model of unrest and hostility towards God and each other. Also today in the 21st century we are no closer with our modern advancements to create a better civilization even with the evolution of these new cult ideologies known as Shin Shukyo which have erupted in Japan creating thousands of these new sects which essentially only further creates a dissension of diversity instead of a unity when it comes to bringing about the solidarity of humanity. In other words God can only solve this equation by eliminating the common denominator of evil humanity which will come when Jesus returns to rule and reign on earth as setting up His kingdom in bringing  about this utopian age.

In closing  I would ask you to consider the Christian worldview which began as an eastern religion but has globally grown to captivate the hearts and lives of countless millions of believers as God’s desire is to redeem all people as inviting everyone to come into His heavenly kingdom. Furthermore biblical Christianity has stood the test of time having been proven again and again to be a carrier of truth and reason which has been authenticated and ratified down through the ages having eluded the debunking theories of its skeptics. Moreover nearly 1 out of every 3 people in the world claim to be Christian and the bible is the most popular book to date having been translated in nearly every language as influencing various tribes, tongues and nations in coming under the sphere of God’s sovereign rule and authority as Creator of the Universe. Ultimately it will be Jesus who as the mediator between God and mankind  will futuristically consummate his rule in upholding His honorary title as the Prince of Peace in establishing all righteousness apart from the claims of any fringe group.

In summary perhaps you have failed to live up to the hype of this  group and maybe it has caused you to seriously question or doubt the methodology as achieving the moral implications of excellence in overcoming the setback of evil in your own life and thus I invite you to come and rest at the feet of Jesus as you will be forever altered or changed which is my testimony and that of many others. 

Finally all I can ask of you my friend is a challenge to honestly seek the one true God as I have described Him as praying that He would personally reveal Himself to you in a knowable way so as to trust Him as Lord and Savior. In turn may He fulfill your life with His everlasting joy, peace and love. 


Mt: 11:28-30 

 28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
