QUOTE (Mitsuo Fuchida) – April 14

April 14, 2014

English: pd-Japan, Japanese production of mits...

“I would give anything to retract my actions at Pearl Harbor, but it is impossible. Instead, I now work at striking the death blow to the basic hatred which infests the human heart and causes such tragedies. And that hatred cannot be uprooted without Jesus Christ … he is the only answer.”
~ Mitsuo Fuchida

In honor of Mitsuo Fuchida, the lead pilot of the December 7, 1941, raid on Pearl Harbor who shouted the war cry, “Tora, Tora, Tora!”. He became a Christian on this day in 1950.

  1. Actually, he came to know the Lord in September, 1949. I just released his story after nine years of research and work on both the screenplay of his life and now the novel. This may seem like a crass plug, but I think all here would be interested in the complete, true story, endorsed by Ravi Zacharias and many others. More here: http://www.WoundedTiger.com


    • Thank you for the correction.


      • JD, I just reread my comment and it comes across as rather blunt, which I apologize for. Nuance is hard to gauge in text sometimes. Thanks for highlighting this amazing true story that few have heard about.


  2. I first heard of his testimony from a sermon by John MacArthur. Thanks for sharing this!


  3. I always am blessed by taking a quick read of your blog. Thank you for your dedication and faithfulness to this ministry. 🙂


  4. Reblogged this on U.S. Constitutional Free Press.
