Muslims And Buddhist’s Murder 1500 Christians!

I will very rarely post from other sources. However, I ask Christians to pray for peace and the war against Christians and Jews! Theodore Shoebat’s article is very disconcerting.

*”Rescue Christians has brought many Christians into Sri Lanka, but now the tides of hope are shifting, and the devils of both Buddhism and Islam are cooperating to destroy Christian lives. As our Lord tells us:

How can Satan cast out Satan? And if a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. (Mark 3:23-27)”

Please pray for the persecuted and the persecutors!

God Bless!

Buddhism: Harmonizing With Christianity?

I recently met by chance with an acquaintance of mine, (maybe slightly more than an “acquaintance”) and he asked “what is new with you these days?” and he was very surprised to hear my response…I said I have become an ordained Christian Minister. More surprising to me, he told me that he too was a believer. Even more surprising to me, although he professed to be a Christian believer he said that he lives his life following the lifestyles of Buddhism!  After further explanation to me he stated that although he believes that Jesus is the Messiah he sees nothing wrong in following the teachings of Buddha as they are very similar.

When I started questioning him on how he came to that decision in his spiritual journey he quickly shut me down, and I could see him getting agitated. So before I left him I gave him some spiritual food for thought.

 Buddhism has an “Eight Fold Path” that is the basis tenet of their belief system. By following the “Path” you will be led to 1) Many Reincarnations 2) Erasure of Karmic Debt; all leading to Nirvana.

Conversely the Christian Bible tells us we must exercise the spiritual disciplines in order to transform our desires. Suffering is not overcome from the quashing of the “self” but through the “selfless” sacrifice of our sinless savior Jesus Christ.

In Buddhism the soul escapes the body and then dresses up in other bodies. Harmonize with Christianity? NO WAY! These two belief systems cannot be harmonized. Buddhism is a false doctrine and offers false hope. Whereas Christianity offers eternal life promised to us from a resurrected savior Jesus.

Since Jesus rose bodily from the tomb and had over FIVE HUNDRED WITNESSES, and he promised that he will return to us in judgment I must believe that. He is still alive. Where is Buddha?

Buddhists require great works to reach Nirvana; Christians do not have a works based faith. Christians only need to realize that we are ALL sinners and require the Grace of God to save us. We ask for forgiveness through repentance. We believe that Jesus was crucified, buried and rose in body three days later.

On the surface most people believe that Buddhism is a peaceful, anti-suffering religion. However I still have not met that many people that really know what Buddhism is all about. Most think of this little fat “Buddha” statue and Yoga, not researching it or really trying to understand it. It is also a favorite of Hollywood celebrities, and we know how well meaning they are…ahem.

Can you see how the two beliefs are similar? I can’t.

John 14: 6 (NASB)

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

Is Buddhism Satanic?

Ok, I know that you are going to cry “foul!” straight away. I mean how could I even table such a question? Everyone knows that Buddhism is such a peaceful religion with those cute little “Buddha Statues” on the mantelpiece and sitting in the bathroom with an air freshener inside them. Come on!

Buddhist’s, just like Wiccans say that they are not Satan worshippers. However, from a Christian perspective we must ultimately say that if it is not from God, it must be orchestrated from Satan. Buddhism is an alternative religion for those who reject Christianity.

Let me point out some glaring anti-Christian issues with Buddhism:

Buddhism teaches that man’s suffering is caused by his egocentric desires and aversions, and if man can change his way of thinking, Nirvana (a peaceful state of rest and tranquility) can be gotten among the problems of this world. It all funnels down to mind control; and doesn’t address the evil heart of man, as the Bible says is “desperately wicked” and deceitful above all else. Jeremiah 17:9, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Buddhism tries to convert the human mind, without bringing into play the sinful heart that cannot be tamed.
Buddhist’s bow down to Idols and worship them:

The Bible teaches that sacrificing to idols is the same as sacrificing to devils. Demons thrive on idol worship. You’re literally in communion with devils as 1 Corinthians 10: 19-20 tells us:
19 Do I mean that what is offered to a statue of a god is anything? Do I mean that a statue of a god is anything? 20 No! But what is offered by those who worship statues of gods is offered to demons. It is not offered to God. I don’t want you to be sharing with demons.

Idol worship has always been associated with Satanism, paganism, and the occult!

Buddhism is a false religion that is becoming more and more popular every day. What with the “Coolness Factor” of hanging around with the Dalai Lama and celebrities grasping onto it, what could be wrong with that? One of the reasons is that it does not put any absolute demands on its worshippers. People don’t want to tolerate sound and true Bible Doctrine anymore.

2nd Timothy 4:3, “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears.”

I quote the Dalai Lama, “The ultimate authority must always rest with the individual’s reason and critical analysis,” meaning that if it makes sense to you, that’s all you need.” So in a nutshell…if it feels good, do it? What a bunch of nonsense! Call me intolerant, but I will not sell out the Almighty God!

If you are a Buddhist, ask yourself, “Why am I praying to a dead Spiritual Leader?”” What promises has he made?” Please turn to our Savior Jesus Christ and ask for repentance! Jesus Christ has risen! Christ is alive and has a purpose in your life! YOU ARE TO GLORIFY HIM IN ALL WAYS! Not a false religion statue!

Here is a perfect example of the good of Buddhism….

Proverb 16:25, “There is a way that seems right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

Why Jesus is “The Only Way” and not Buddha or Muhammad.

Red Alert! Jesus claimed, and you can read it for yourself, that he is the only way to God!

John 14: 6, Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. How clearer could it have been stated? And to take it a step further he said that “whoever rejects him, rejects the one that sent him” Luke 10:16 “The one who listens to you listens to Me, and the one who rejects you rejects Me; and he who rejects Me rejects the One who sent Me.”

Some may go and make the accusation that “all religions have the same kind of message, however they would sincerely need to re-evaluate that statement. Muhammad the founder of Islam and Siddharta the founder of Buddhism are both dead and still in their graves. But Jesus the Messiah is risen! Very crucial indeed! Jesus’ disciples claimed him to be God.

John 1: 1 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Jesus himself claimed to be God, read John 10: 30-34, 30 I and the Father are one.”
31 The Jews picked up stones again to stone Him. 32 Jesus answered them, “I showed you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?” 33 The Jews answered Him, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God.” 34 Jesus answered them, “Has it not been written in your Law, ‘I SAID, YOU ARE GODS’?

Can you name any other founder of a major religion that has made that claim? Jesus was coined at one time as “Either a Lunatic, Liar or Lord” However Jesus put that statement to rest by saying his resurrection would be proof of him being Messiah in the scripture;

Matthew 12: 38-42, 38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees said to Him, “Teacher, we want to see a sign from You.” 39 But He answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation craves for a sign; and yet no sign will be given to it but the sign of Jonah the prophet; 40 for just as JONAH WAS THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS IN THE BELLY OF THE SEA MONSTER, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41 The men of Nineveh will stand up with this generation at the judgment, and will condemn it because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and behold, something greater than Jonah is here. 42 The Queen of the South will rise up with this generation at the judgment and will condemn it, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and behold, something greater than Solomon is here.

Jesus is more than a preference, HE IS THE ONLY WAY!

Amen!
