Masaru Nakamura（中村 多）／著
Writing this book, “The Wisdom of Solomon” has been my desire and challenge for a long time.
The reason why is that the heart of our nation was completely lost because of the unprecedented defeat in war about 60 something years ago. It was just like a saying, ‘The country is destroyed; yet mountains and rivers remain,’ the land remained; however, the nation’s heart was gone.
The elderly all through the ages would often say to the young at that time, “The young are up to no good,” or “There were good old days.”
Although I am not one of those who talk about this kind of nonsense, I sure believe it is a fact that these old days were good.
Needless to say, it is a matter of education. People could not learn ethics or morals in the postwar education system, and only the individual rights were valued. Top of that, people grew up without an opportunity to discuss ethics and morals, which were the most important norm to live as human beings during the high economic growth era.
Even in the old days when ethics and morals were taught and followed, there were crimes and some abominable incidents occurred.
However, ethics and morals are not taught nowadays, and various crimes are committed without the foundations of life. What the daily news media cover is astounding. Recently a large part of the public has come to realization that something needs to be done.
Now I hope you stop and think about the “Book of Proverbs” which is the wisdom given to Solomon by Almighty God.
