Origami is a popular pastime in Japan. Try to fold a paper crane! Some Japanese believe that folding 1,000 origami cranes will bring them good luck and long life. There is only one path to eternal life as the Bible says in John 14:6, "Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.' "
