The god Of Buddhism

Buddha is the god of Buddhism! I know that many Buddhists will not freely admit this. If Buddha is not a god, then why does the Buddhist worship, Buddha?

“There are different types of worship. When someone worships a god, they praise him or her, making offerings and ask for favors, believing that the god will hear their praise, receive their offerings and answer their prayers. Buddhists do not indulge in this kind of worship. The other kind of worship is when we show respect to someone or something we admire. When a teacher walks into a room, we stand up, when we meet a dignitary we shake hands, when the national anthem is played we salute. These are all gestures of respect and worship and indicate our admiration for persons and things. This is the type of worship Buddhist practice. A statue of the Buddha with its hands rested gently in its la, and its compassionate smile reminds us to strive to develop peace and love within ourselves. The perfume of incense reminds us of the pervading influence of virtue; the lamp reminds us of light of knowledge and the flowers which soon fade and die, reminds us of impermanence. When we bow, we express our gratitude to the Buddha for what his teachings have given us. This is the nature of Buddhist worship.”

Is that true?

“Though Buddhists claim that they do not serve a god, another fact contradicts their denial of serving a god. They have their version of a “Bible”: “The Dhammapada, an anthology of 423 verses, has long been recognized as one of the masterpieces of early Buddhist literature. From ancient times to the present, the Dhammapada has been regarded as the most succinct expression of the Buddha’s teaching found in the Theravada Pali Canon of scriptures known as the Khuddaka Nikaya (‘Minor Collection’) of the Sutta Pitaka.”

Buddhism is pure idolatry! Bowing down to statues of a dead spiritual leader is strictly forbidden in the Holy Bible!

Gal 5: 16-21

16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, 21 envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Buddhism is a false religion bowing and praying to a false god. Pleas, Christian, pray for the Buddhist. Pray that the Holy Spirit comes upon these people.

Christianity is the true religion and the only religion that can be historically verified. Buddhism and Hinduism are not true faiths, as they do not have any central claims of events in the spectrum of time or space, so believers cannot investigate such claims.

The Biblical Position Of Bowing To Statues Or Idols

(Leviticus 26:1, Deuteronomy 5:8-9, and Luke 4:8).

“Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the LORD your God… Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me… And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve”

Bowing down is a form of worship:

Psalms 95:6 and Exodus 34:8;

Oh come, let us worship and bow down;
let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker

And Moses quickly bowed his head toward the earth and worshiped.

If you are following Buddhism, Roman Catholicism or any other form of false religion that bows to and worships idols, REPENT!

John 14: 5-7
5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.”

Follow Jesus, repent.
