I am Tomoko. I come from the far eastern land of Japan of Shizuoka. I now reside in western country of the USA. I attend a church called First Presbyterian. I first discover my new relationship with Christ when I still live in Japan. I feel like something was missing..a missing link. I now have a boyfriend and we attend church regularly with his family. It is as if I feel like I am unwelcome. I had an older man approach me and ask me about my boyfriend. He said that it is a sin in the bible for anyone to date outside their race. Is this TRUE? This sound like nonsense I never hear of it before. My boyfriend is white. But why do people make color or race a factor and not judgement of character? Do they not like Japanese Christians?
