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.

Pantheism: What is it?

Hinduism’s main belief system is pantheism; here is the definition:

*Greek for “everything is God”, the belief that God and the universe are essentially identical. More specifically, pantheism is the designation for the understanding of the close connection between the world and the divine reality found in certain religions, including Hinduism. One variety of pantheism speaks of God as the “soul” of the universe, which is thought to be God’s “body.” Pantheistic religions often suggest that our experience of being disconnected from each other and from the divine is merely an illusion.

Does The Roman Catholic Church Perform Sorcery?

I know, now you are going to say I am going too far now! However if we look at the very definition of “Sorcery” it is: “The involvement of the Spirit World via rituals and orations to get a specific aftereffect in the Physical World”. Are the Roman Catholics guilty of these things? Let’s take a quick look of this from the writing from the Church’s own publications:

CCC 1127 Celebrated worthily in faith, the sacraments confer the grace that they signify .48 They are efficacious because in them Christ himself is at work: it is he who baptizes, he who acts in his sacraments in order to communicate the grace that each sacrament signifies. The Father always hears the prayer of his Son’s Church which, in the epiclesis of each sacrament, expresses her faith in the power of the Spirit. As fire transforms into itself everything it touches, so the Holy Spirit transforms into the divine life whatever is subjected to his power.

CCC 1128 this is the meaning of the Church’s affirmation that the sacraments act ex opere operato (literally: “by the very fact of the action’s being performed”), i.e., by virtue of the saving work of Christ, accomplished once for all. It follows that “the sacrament is not wrought by the righteousness of either the celebrant or the recipient, but by the power of God.” From the moment that a sacrament is celebrated in accordance with the intention of the Church, the power of Christ and his Spirit acts in and through it, independently of the personal holiness of the minister. Nevertheless, the fruits of the sacraments also depend on the disposition of the one who receives them.

These two reference examples (and there are more) show clearly that by the simple act of performing a sacrament, which is a ritual, a particular outcome will arise. When the sacraments are done by a priest in a particular style they achieve, by indication of the procedure procured and the authority of the church and the priest, the intended result will be received, according to the Roman Catholic Church. This my friend is Sorcery!

The Rosary Beads:

The Rosary Beads are ritualistic and boldly laughs at the words of God! Roman Catholics must do 20 sets of 10 “Hail Marys”, (200 times in total.) In defense the Catholics petition to Psalm 136, that translates the same phrase 26 times with 26 different blessings that God gives us. It is not 26 in a row as with the rosary! This is a song, and not a prayer. As history indicates The Roman Catholic Church borrowed the idea from the Pagan Hindus and Buddhists and goes back as far as 1000 AD! The beads the Catholics use today were invented in 1090 AD by Peter the Hermit (a priest of Amiens and a key figure during the First Crusade).

Biblically a Christian knows this is wrong, and condemned by Jesus:

Matthew 6: 7-8, 7 “And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words. 8 So do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.

The Rosary is not only vain repetition and meaningless, it is a form of Mary worship that is against the Second Commandment.

Exodus 20: 4-5 4 “You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. 5 You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me,

I ask that Christians pray to God (directly) to show the Roman Catholic’s the true way to Jesus and ultimately Salvation.

God Bless!
