Inoue’s objective is not to eliminate the clergyman, however to cause him to apostatize, to ensure that numerous other Christians will definitely misery in addition to return to common Japanese spirituality. Rodriguez has many conversations with Inoue worrying the nature of truth as well as additionally the capability of Japan to take in the global spirituality of Christianity.
