NOTE - This will enlighten all, even the heathens?
Luke 17:20 - And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come,
he answered them and said, "The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall
they say, 'Lo here! or, lo there!' for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you."
Jesus also said, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Light. No one comes to the Father but by me." This means he IS the way , he IS truth, he IS the light. The only way to heaven (zen, enlightenment) is "through him."
This means the only way to heaven (WHATEVER you want to call it) is through TRUTH, through LIGHT. Remember, Jesus WAS truth, he WAS the light - he was a MANIFESTATION of heaven (this is what he called "it").
My point - The way to "heaven"(true self - identity) is through truth - ANYONE can be a manifestation of truth, NOT JUST JESUS. In reality, we are each a manifestation of truth (reality), you simply have to SEE it.
How do you feel?
Meh, you asked the same thing a little while ago.
You lost my attention at this part "Luke 17:20 ", reading babble verses doesn't enlighten me, it lowers my IQ.
I'm so enlightened, I'm experiencing dizziness.
I feel that you don't have a clue.
I feel that using bible verses to try to prove the bible true is circular reasoning...STILL.
Mind me asking why you have a picture of Hotai as your avatar?
if you are trying to get a picture of Buddha at least get one that isn't insulting to Buddhists
you're weird ryan .. there is NO god ... religion is a scam
using scripture to bolster one's own godhood leaves me feeling like...well...like the antichrist is trying to steal my crown.
How do I feel? .... same as I felt the first time i realised the truth that you speak of my friend.....FREE :))
No, no. Christians will not accept this at all. You are taking Jesus' quote too broadly. He literally meant you had to worship him to get into heaven. He really meant that HE is the truth, not that truth = getting into heaven. You literally have to kiss up to Jesus a la Christianity.
I'm not Christian but pretty much that is what they will say to you: there is one god, God, and his son Jesus.
Doesn't mean its true at all.
I don't understand why you feel the need to explain/prove to 'heathens' that you're 'right'.
If they aren't doing anything to hurt others, then let people be with their own beliefs.
Therefore, I feel indifferent.
