Buddhist Monk turns to Jesus

Bruce believed in Buddhism and in 1994 he was ordained as a novice monk. Even though he was relaxed at peace, there were no miracles, or great spiritual awakening in his life. At last he turned to Jesus Christ and his life changed for the better after his conversion to Christianity.

BUDDHIST Monk turns To JESUS Christ

After I finished high school, I decided to find my own identity by researching my Laotian background. I read many books on Laotian history, religion and philosophy. Besides researching my ethnical background I also wanted to find out more about the belief I had been born into. Buddhism with all its rules and regulations was not satisfying me spiritually or emotionally. By the age of 30 the problems in my life were almost crushing me. I thought if I worked harder at Buddhism, I might find the answers.

In 1994 I was ordained as a novice monk. There where several reasons for doing this; to gain spiritual experience and merits, but also to pay respect to my parents, especially my mother. The parents of monks receive honour and status in the community, so by my becoming a monk, I also raised their status. My family and friends prepared the initiation ceremony. My head was shaved and I was dressed in a white robe, which was later changed to a yellow one. The next 3 weeks were spent in a Buddhist temple learning to obey very strict rules.

My day began at 6.00am chanting and praying the TRIPITAKA: the Triple Gems: the Buddha, the teaching and Sangha Monk community. Then I would sweep the floor and tidy up. As a novice monk I had to cook breakfast and lunch. The remaining time was spent washing, meditating, teaching and studying the Buddhist scriptures. Since there is very little written Buddhist scripture recorded, the teaching method is passed on verbally and memorised. Even though I was relaxed and at peace, there were no miracles, or great spiritual awakening.

My conversion to Christianity

I finally left the Buddhist temple none the wiser, or more able to cope with my problems. Yes, for a while in the monastery, away from every day problems I felt at peace, after all I didn’t have to cope with reality. However, I didn’t feel satisfied, nor was I taught how to cope with life outside the monastery.

I didn’t find the answer as a Buddhist monk so I decided to look elsewhere. I spent many months of continually reading books on different religions, including the Bible. Some of my Christian friends even invited me to their church. I also attended a church camp. None of the above however made a difference until on Monday 27th Dec 1999 I met a lady who told me about Jesus Christ. On this day I made Jesus Christ my Lord, Master, Saviour and God.

I met her while visiting my best friend, Zlatko. She listened sympathetically to the problems and struggles in my life, emphasising that ONLY GOD could help remove the burdens from my shoulders. I could not work for my “”Salvation””. As I listened I felt different, warmth had crept into my heart, and finally I said a short prayer to welcome the LORD Jesus Christ into my heart as my Saviour. I didn’t know it then, but found out later, that Jovanka my friend’s wife had prayed intensely in “”tongues”” while I was being witnessed to. God later told her the following: “”Marlies, you think it was your good witnessing skills that led Souk to Jesus! No, when Jovanka prayed in tongues she bound the demon sitting on his head that had stopped him from turning to the Lord Jesus Christ.””

When the prayer was over I felt totally at peace and relieved. I was not even afraid of what my parents might say that one of their children had changed from a religion that had been in the family for centuries. In fact, within a few weeks I told them that no longer did I follow the Buddhist religion, but had become a Christian.

My life changed for the better after my conversion to Christianity. I was taught the basic Bible principles and gradually the Holy Spirit opened my eyes and heart to see and understand the “”TRUTH”” about GOD. I saw miracles, received revelations from God via dreams. Also my prayers were answered. As well as, there was a visitation by the Lord Jesus Christ. One very important change was that slowly God had helped to erase my past sadness, heartache and worries and replaced them with His warmth, healing, love, joy and peace.

During the first 4 years of being a born-again Christian, I learnt how to fight spiritually and to overcome the tricks and temptation of the enemy–satan. Despite my sincere efforts though, there still remained old habits such as laziness, gambling, lust, rebellion, stubbornness, pride and childish behaviour – tantrums. There were also major issues of confusion in speech and writing and depression.

The Break Through

I thank God for Christian friends who put up with me. Gradually life was getting so bad that I gave in to the prompting of my friends and on the 13th July 2004, we sought God in order to have the root cause revealed, which had hindered my walk with Jesus. Yes, I knew Jesus loved me very much and that I was his child, but there were blockages that were hindering me from a closer walk.

That night we praised and worshipped the Lord Jesus and waited upon Him. During prayer, 2 events from my childhood came to mind. One night my parents went out and my younger brothers and I were looked after by the maid. Looking back, I now know that she was performing witchcraft. We were sitting on the floor around a burning candle. Suddenly she said “”something””, then threw a rag-doll at me. This frightened me so much that my spirit nearly jumped out of my body. In fright and anger I retaliated by throwing a nail cutter and file at her which hit her near the eye. She had a sore left eye, but was otherwise ok.

The 2nd event happened at the age of 8, when my father gave me a small job to do. I had to offer water and food to an ICON among other Buddhist statues inside the house shrine. One night I forgot to bring the food offering and the spirit, became angry. That night, my family and I were woken by constant knocking on the floor and wall. When my dad returned from police duty, he told me it was a spirit of a dead boy who had been called upon to come and protect the family. I was punished for not doing my job. Now, I know that the dead boy would have gone straight to heaven, because all children belong to God, regardless of what religion the parents are. The ’spirit’, asked to protect my family in fact was a demon and a bone from the dead boy’s body gave it the right to be in our home.

I shared these two events with my friends. The first thing that came out during prayer was that my name had to be changed from Souk-SonKhan to Bruce. Souk-SonKhan in Loation means war on Friday. All my life I remembered strife and conflict, especially during my school days when other children would tease me about my name, calling me ‘cry baby’, for that is what Souk means in English.

In regards to the curses, of a ‘befuddled mind’, poverty, depression and suicide, spoken out by the maid, Marlies broke these and asked God to turn them into blessings. Interestingly, when we looked up the word ‘fuddled’ in the dictionary, it described my attempts at speaking perfectly — foolish, confused and muddled. Then she commanded the ‘boy demon’ to leave my body. Because I had forgotten to give the demon its offerings it had come into my body as punishment. This explained my childish tantrums considering I am now 38.

When Mendo, Marlies and I met again the next day she had an interesting story to tell me. Apparently the ‘boy demon’ had followed her home after leaving Mendo’s place that night and just as she was about to go to sleep it stood by her bed and told her to invite it into her life. In no uncertain terms she told it to go back to the Laotian village where it had come from! As it couldn’t go into Marlies it decided to force its way into my life again.

After the prayer session on Monday night I expected a spiritual battle and was ready for warfare. I dreamt that I was in a house with a teenage boy. Not until what appeared to be sunrise did I realise that my dream had become reality, because as I was pushing the boy out of the window I noticed that he was wearing my white and blue striped flannelette shirt which ended up in my hand as he vanished. Then I realised that the boy in my dream had not been a human being but the spirit of the dead boy who my father had asked to protect my family over 30 years ago. Instantly I rebuked it and commanded it to leave in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Now, I had evidence that the spirit impersonating the dead teenage boy had been living in my soul and had been holding back my life’s progress and joy.

The next night the demon tried, but did not ucceed, to come back into my soul while I was sleeping. I was woken up when the evil spirit tried to touch my legs; so I commanded it to get lost and never return.

For those reading my testimony you might ask yourself the question, “”why did it take 4 years for me to get properly cleaned out?”” Extreme stubbornness and pride, on my part, prevented God the Holy Spirit from getting through to me. Every time I was told that there was something wrong I threw a tantrum and didn’t mix with my friends for a few weeks, or months. At one stage I had a friend staying with me. God gave him a dream and in that dream Rey saw Jesus Christ sitting on my bed. Tears were rolling down Jesus’ cheeks as he looked at my sleeping body.

Stubbornness and pride are major sins. In Buddhism, with the wheel of reincarnation, you simply try to be good, but as you might come back as an ant, or tiger, it doesn’t really matter. By the continuing process of reincarnation you are not held accountable for your actions, even though your conscience tells you when there is something wrong. In the Bible however it is written: Hebrews 9:27 “”Everyone must die once and after that be judged by God.”” I became a monk, because amongst other things this would give prestige to my family. Buddhist monks might have a higher standing in society, but ultimately they will stand before God and be accountable for their sins. The Bible says: Romans 3:22 God puts people right through their faith in Jesus Christ. God does this to all who believe in Christ, because there is no difference at all: 23/ everyone has sinned and is faraway from God’s saving presence. 24/ But by the free gift of God’s grace all are put right with him through Christ Jesus, who sets them free.

I look back now at how much I’ve learnt from the Lord Jesus through his Holy Spirit. Jesus won the victory over death at the Cross ( Luke 24: 7) and set me free. God is so kind and loving that He entrusted His faithful followers to use His Name and power for genuine purposes such as healing the sick and casting out demons, so that His Father might be glorified. (Luke 1:19..) So, people have the freewill and choice to accept Jesus Christ by Faith to be their Lord and God Then they also have a choice of being “”totally”” cleaned from sins and denouncing all previous masters.

Even though I am longing to go to Heaven to be in God’s presence, I realise that there is so much work to be done on earth. I am very grateful to God who knows that I try very hard to please Him, but it is only through His Grace and the Blood of the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ that I am accepted to be worthy, not good works.

I must thank many people who have shared their love and devotion, guidance and prayer with me to get to know and come closer to the Great, Living God. My parents and family have raised and fed me, but I see my Christian brothers and sisters – as my extended spiritual family. It is my heart desire to follow the Wonderful Lord Jesus and to fulfil His commission which is to preach, pray, share God’s love and the Good News to all nations regardless (Matthew 28:19)

No other philosopher or religious leader could ever guarantee their followers the assurance that their names will be written in the “” Book of Life”” (Revelation 20:12) and that they will live for an eternity in heaven with Almighty God. I will always give praise, glory and honour to Almighty God the Father, through his Son Jesus for the ransom of my sins on the cross.

If you have never asked Jesus Christ into your heart then pray the following prayer.

“”Oh, Lord my God, I come to you today and I ask you to forgive me for my sins. I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who died and rose again to set me free from my sins. I ask now Lord Jesus that you would come into my heart and be my Lord, Master, Saviour and God. I also ask that you Heavenly Father would give me the Holy Spirit. I welcome you Holy Spirit into my heart and I pray that you would teach me and guide me in the way I should go.

Oh Lord my God I ask you now to forgive me for the sin of having served the devil (name the areas eg Buddhism, witchcraft, Satanism etc.) in the area of … and that you would wash me clean with the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ from that sin.”” Then say: “”Devil the Lord Jesus Christ has forgiven me for serving you …. He is my Master now, and I tell every foul demonic spirit to get out of my life now and stay out. I take the Sword of the Holy Spirit and cut off every association with the devil once and for all. Amen

  1. A fantastic testimony! When a Buddhist, Muslim, Roman Catholic or whatever religion they were into, when they meet Jesus there lives are changed forever!

  2. I am a Catholic, but I am living in a multiracial country with lots of religions.. Forgive me if I am wrong.. But I find that when someone choses to become a monk, what he usually does is having a peaceful mind, meditating, doing charity (only in temple) for a good Karma.. But doesn’t it sounds so selfish? Doing all of those things for your own good only? So where is God? I am sure, even when you are in your so called earthly life, there are still a lot of good things that we can do.. Just think about humanity.. I am not here to preach, but I want to encourage people to think… If there is no God, then how does everything ever existed?

    i would asked from the writer what is the solution in christianity for been sick, getting old and death. all the christians face these problems. When these things prevail all the people face problems in their life. There is no escape from the God. Only buddhism has the solution for these problems and no the
    religion.

    • Marilena Fackerell says:

      Hi Nishantha,

      The solution from Christianity, from Jesus Christ to the problems you raise are these: Jesus promises to heal people supernaturally and He does. My husband sees miracles when he prays for people often in their bodies being healed. And there are many testimonies around the world, lots and lots of them of people getting healed by a miracle. The problem of getting old can’t be fixed by any religion, is how God made all human beings to be and no ideology will make someone stop getting older. The problem is death is the same, except that in Christianity some people get raised from the dead through prayer and also there is hope after death that you will have eternal life in heaven, which no other religion can promise.

      • Actually, not true. Islam also promises eternal life in heaven. I’m sure there are a few other minor religions that also do the same. Christianity does not have an exclusive claim to that belief.

        Looking from the outside, being of neither religion (Islam or Christianity) to me they look almost the same. (Yes, Islam currently has a pretty violent reputation, but Christianity did too, once. The crusades were pretty violent when Christians used military might to conquer others. The inquisition was violent, when unbelievers (pagans, which was basically the old polytheistic religion of the time) were burned at the stake. The Salem witch trials were violent, when people went crazy and killed anyone on a rumor.)

        Now even fundamental Christians don’t take everything literally in the bible. For example I don’t see any Christians stoning adulterers to death, or selling thieves into slavery. Yet that’s exactly what the bible says to do. Islam will get there too, someday. (In that they will calm down and eventually start ignoring the more outlandish things in the Koran and instead just cherry pick what they like. What Christians do, basically). The two religions are more alike than you’d like to believe. They’re practically siblings.

        • While Christians have tended to cherry-pick the New Testament for the parts they want to keep, it has to be remembered that the New Testament EXPLICITLY teaches that we are no longer under the Mosaic system of Law which was given to Israel and told them to stone adulterers to death.

          The Inquisition was run by the Roman Catholic Institution and murdered many true born again Christians as well as plenty of other people they did not like. Don’t call it Christian because it wasn’t according to the New Testament – but rather in opposition to it.

          Maybe you are the one cherry picking – just cherry picking history and parroting tired cliches against New Testament Christianity. You have to look at what the New Testament says. Because it is a New Testament which replaces the Old one.

        • A sinner can’t punish another sinner (Jesus says like this, If you are perfect stone the adulterers)
          Jesus is the God, he forgive the sinners, he told to love and not to punish. Jesus told be perfect as your father be perfect.

  4. Hello,

    Why be so angry at one another? nether religion would support that. I have not read much Buddhist scripture but have read much by the Dalai Lama, who is a very reasonable person and has only good things to say about Christianity. There is so much in common between Buddhist and Christian values. I am recently born again in Christ and would say that the Dalai Lama’s writing led me on this path. I have concluded that God occupies the empty space that Buddhists yearn for and aim to occupy. It is such a relief to find that its not empty! I now see that striving to achieve Nirvana through meditation is far beyond the capability of most humans and we need the infinitely great power of God to guide us in life and to make us accountable when we stray from what both religions obviously agree is the right way to live. Peace and may we all find God Almighty! Amen.

    • I think people say “he couldn’t be a real Buddhist monk if he converted” because they feel, like I do, that if they experienced what we have experienced in Buddhism then they wouldn’t want to leave Buddhism and they would see the obvious truth in the teachings.

      However if their understanding was inaccurate (ie they thought demon ghost boys had something to do with Buddhism and didn’t understand the law of karma like this man didn’t) then they lacked a proper understanding of Buddhism. Apparently its possible to be a monk in name but not really understand Buddhism.

      Also if they practiced correctly, they would experience the same things that many other Buddhists have and would therefore not want to leave it. Thats what people think when they say “he couldn’t be a real monk if he left”. (I bet you’d say exactly the same thing about a Christian who deconverted out of Christianity)

      If someone left Buddhism for Christianity, then many people will just assume that that someone hasn’t experienced what they have experienced. Otherwise why leave it?

      I do not believe nirvana is beyond the capability of any human. But that is where we Buddhists must believe based on faith.

      Whereas Christian faith demands a belief that all humans are rotten, like dirty rags, Buddhist faith requires that we believe deep down, all humans are naturally good, even though the defilements may make it seem otherwise for some people. It is only from the belief of a true nature that is originally good that we can come to the belief that all beings can realize nirvana. If original goodness did not exist as our basic nature then no beings could attain nirvana. Yet people yes even contemporary people have become enlightened as have many many over the centuries. Therefore our true nature is good, it is kind, it is compassionate.

      • will sommer says:

        Your premises do not lead to the conclusion that our true nature is good. Regardless, would you not feel pleasure, even when faced with the suffering of others if you were in eternal bliss?

        • No, I would not feel happy or pleasure, unless it was the same kind of forced pleasure that drugs give people. If I were forced to feel pleasure because that’s what heaven was, then of course I would feel pleasure I’d have no choice.

          But if I had a choice? I really really would be horribly unhappy to know that a huge percentage of the human population is going to suffer for eternity, simply because they were not lucky enough to believe the right thing. In fact, how could you even think you would be happy? Knowing that? If you are actually capable of feeling empathy at all…then I find it hard to believe anyone would be content in heaven, knowing others perhaps friends, even loved ones- are suffering eternally in a prison that “god” and “jesus” refuse to tear down.

          I think the only reason you can imagine yourself not feeling horrible about others eternal suffering is because you aren’t really in touch with your true self…which is your good self. You’ve buried it with who you think you are… a piece of dirty rag. You are not a rag, you are a beautiful human being, whose true nature, beneath all the dirt, is good and beautiful. But if the layer of dirty is so thick, then of course you won’t see your true, good nature. It’s buried. That’s how I see it.

          • Rod Carlson says:

            Of course I feel bad for those not lucky enough to get the right answer. I think God wants us to have compassion for those who cannot or do not want to understand to save them from destruction. In the end though the world is full of cases where lack of knowledge is death. I’m an engineer and ignorance is not bliss it’s death! That is what we don’t know can surely kill us. Hosea 4:6 says “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest.” There is a reason why children have guardians when they are younger, it’s to provide guidance and protection from their ignorance, and that is because the world is plagued with complexity that by choosing wrongly can result in death. Children don’t know these things and thus are not held accountable, but rather we as guardians and parents must be held accountable for them until of age. But to say that God or his people are excited to know that a great percentage of people will not become accountable to the truth and result in their own death is an Ad hominem attack of Christians. We care very much about people getting the answer, in the same way I care that a engineering student understand the laws of thermodynamics to make them accountable. You’re right though not everyone is going to let themselves become fortunate enough to accept the truth and working order of the universe. Many will be lost to hedging bushes using their lawn mower, we can place warning labels on such things as much as we like but somewhere the responsiblity falls back on the owner of their own life. The truth is that it pains us very much that most people don’t want to become accountable to the truth and will die like any other likeness on this world due to lack of knowledge. You of course may blame the creation or creator for this order, but maybe instead of being born fortunate it amounts to us inheriting our fortune by choice. Freedom of choice to be exact, many choose death and ignorance. As far as Buddhism I’ve had many good friends that are Buddhist. I’m hopeful that there is some exemption for lack of exposure to truth, it does say in our bible that we are judged by how much we are given. A man that is given more is expected more. So the real question is for example if you fully have had your conscience speak to you that Buddhism is wrong and you denied it out of convenience say not to alarm or make your parents hate you, then you were given the truth but preferred ignorance. In which case you are guilty as the lawn mower owner raising the mower above his head to hedge some bushes. On the other hand if you felt no spark of truth of Christianity and your heart because you never truly contemplated it then I measure the opportunity may arise later. The reality is that the truth doesn’t force itself on us, but falsity creates loss and destruction always. Is God evil for allowing such? No because he gave us more than all other creations in his universe the choice to choose the truth, which is very benovolent. God is life and truth. The reason people go to hell (death) and destruction without him is because that is causitive for what happens when one is missing the spirit and protection of the truth and life. And that is an individual choice, just like jumping off a bridge is also an individuals choice. We all feel bad when someone commmits suicide, it nags at our heart but the individual is accountable for his own causative lies and self choices. But yes I cry for my family all the time when they might not make it to heaven, I worry about myself as well. The point is that without repentance and trying to form a relationship with this greater thing the end result is as causitive as the law of gravitation or thermodynamics. Which brings up another point…the law of karma that buddhist believe. They always say that people that are bad have to pay the badness in retribution in the next life. Or those who are good get to live better in the next life. But who makes this law? Was it just a universal law that has no personality? See the fact that the universe is so intelligent with laws to me indicates that man is pretty small in the logical and reasoning arena. The world is crawling with such laws in physics. The mathematics that apply outside of us are not of our own making. They are all intelligent as the laws of physics. The problem is that we are small in the department when the universe itself seems self aware? I could go on and on, but Buddhism is lacking. It’s lacking because it believes in laws without a reason of law making. It’s the same lacking melodrama that atheist point out when they say man is the ultimate in everything, even though mathtematics and science disagree that we are quite puny in the intelligence casaution department of the entire universe. Belief in Laws like Karma but no lawmaker. Great I guess that a video game was created without a programmer too?

          • Rod Carlson says:

            Also bliss or nothingness as the ultimate in Buddhism is another big fat fib. Let’s put this in perspective in order of this world we live in? The natural order of this world is tendencey to higher disorder. The law is called entropy (thermodynamics). That is a car rusts, and house rots, and shoes get worn out, and a clean hosue gets dirty left uncleaned. Nature wants to level tall structures and bring them down. But life fights entropy. It’s always trying to overcome the natural tendency of this world toward death, chaos, and lower energy and structural order. Life fights entropy by growing upward from the ground and creating orgainization out of disorder. Obviously it can do this with cheap energy say solar energy, but still missing is that Life is anti-disorder. The preferred direction of entropy is nothing! Which is to be precise also DEATH! All this mumbo jumbo of bliss of nothingness is basically the worship of death and entropy. It’s unnatural and it’s a lie of the first order of the deception. Quite frankly the reason no monk can become like Buddha is because they aren’t dead yet, just give it time though and they all will get their wish of bliss and nothingness. Do I dislike Buddhist for telling them this, NO! I love my Buddhist friends and quite frankly they deserve better, they deserve the benefit and anti entropy of God and his Son. Anyway, I was born Christian but went looking over all the other religions with a fair and honest mind, but I analyzed the merits using my logical engineering brain. Christianity is the only truth in this world. And I will also say to those saying why did God have a ransom of his Son’s death to cover our sins? Well as an engineer this is why most laws we study are conservative. That means you don’t get something for nothing. For example things don’t just magically appear or disappear they have to be accounted for and change forms but still exist. To me the constancy of physics and mathematics is one of the fundamental truths. In the same way that I dig a hole in the ground the moved soil doesn’t just disappear without taking it from somewhere else. In fact that is the biggest problem I have with hypocritical environmentalist and liberals in general is that they always think things are perpetual motion machines or there is a free goodie machine somewhere that generates free electricity without burning coal or oil for example. And yet we physcist and engineers know such is rubbish. So in the same way that you cannot create money without counterfeiting (cheating another out of the net worth of their savings), a causative world requires that a debt or hole be repaid. So to me the idea that one man’s goodness and payment of our sins to cover all of us isn’t illogical at all, it’s shows though what true love really is. And yes Jesus in my opinion started out a man just like any of us now, the fact he talked as first person as the God of the universe was explained over and over that the spirit of the father can inhabit us. That is his body wasn’t all of God, but his words were nonetheless conveying the thoughts of the entire intelligent universe just like me talking on a speaker phone or PA. So long story short, the ransom is paid but we still have to repent. There is a working order to the universe, pretending that they are cruel (say laws of thermodynamics) doesn’t do junk for our predicament. We either fess up the truth and start to live by it, or we earn back the payment of our lies and sins. Still ignorance is not bliss. Nothingness and bliss is entropy. And entropy is Mr. DEATH! In short Buddhism is a waste of time because it’s not relevant to this world. It makes up all kinds of laws with no law maker. It acts like there are no other laws than Karma. It embraces the opposition of life that is death/entropy/destruction as the highest good.

  5. This is what I don’t understand when I read a blog or book reviews or video comments. For years I have looked into converts story’s on how they converted and every time and every time there is always many people in the comments saying; “the person sharing is fake and never was a Buddhist or Atheist or a Muslim or Gay or Evolutionist or whatever they convert converted from.” I notice this a lot when a person converts to a Christianity. Every time I see a debate on film or at a university majority of the time it’s always Something versus Christian. Don’t you find this strange? I guess Jesus was right when he said they the world hated me first. And the bible says the word is a two edged sword, because it’s cutting people deep. I’m starting to realize the biggest threat to a person’s belief system is the word of God( the Bible), and that goes for all religions/beliefs or world views. That also goes for the Christians that try to dictate God’s word to fit there way of life. The God the bible offers all these beautiful things that I can begin to describe, but it cost everything (All of you). PLEASE PEOPLE NEVER JUDGE A RELIGION OR WORLD VIEW BY IT’S ABUSE. Leave the statistics alone, nothing to do with you personally.

  6. Buddhists are so happy people??? Then look at Tibet, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Burma now Myanmar, and Srilanka, just name a few. They are poor and miserable people. They hate each others, they kill each others without remorce.
    Nepal is the place that some men have tried to find way to escape sufferings, and Gotama buddha was the one whom about 300 million still worshiping him as their god. Did he stop sufferings??? No. His teachings cannot escape the sufferings, but leads to more destructions, and poverty/miserable. and his followers are mostly poor and primitive. Without the Christian powerful nations help, the Buddhists know exactly they would head to.
    Today, Nepal has a boy called Buddha boy is said to meditate to becoming buddha. He said, he is god nor divine being, but he only brings the light to the world. What Light???
    TEN COMMANDMENTS OF GOD IS THE MOST POWERFUL LAW. Jesus Christ is the LIGHT.
    Christian nations are Blessed and Powerful who today reaching out throughout the world to feed and feed the poor in every corner of the planet.

    Lord Jesus Christ is no Buddha as you or Luficer’s army claimed, Jesus Christ is GOD, the Almighty in human flesh. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. He is the Light, and the Resurrection. He is an Alpha and Omega, the Begining and the End. I dreamed and saw Christ since I was a child.

    I was a Buddhist child and I knew what is Buddhism and who are they Buddhists. They are 99.9999..% Evils. They have no Fear of God, nor they fear of their idol Buddhas. Why? Buddhas were men who tried to escape sufferings,they had no power over dark forces, no power to cast evils out..Buddha Gotoma himself was poisoned by eating pork. He was not able to escape sufferings. I can just go on and on… Buddhism is Satanic.

    Ps; to Charles Nguyen. Change your name to Buddhist name.

    I am not from Laos, but from next door.

  7. Big Thought says:

    The problem was the rules and regulations. Not Buddhism. First of all, Buddhism has few regulations and rules compared to most religions, Christianity included. Buddhism has the eightfold path. That is all. Christianity has the ten commandments (of which rape is not included, but talking back to your parents is) and many many other rules scattered all over the Bible. And nobody can argue with the eightfold path.
    1) know the truth
    2) say nothing to hurt others
    3) practice meditation
    4) control your thoughts

    Jesus would wear that on a t-shirt.
    Christianity is responsible for the crusades, the Native American holocaust, and the westboro baptist cult. Buddhism is responsible for a bunch of happy people who don’t swat at flies. And by definition, Jesus was a Bodhisattva (a buddha). Also, just to clear up the misconception, The Gautama Buddha is not worshiped as a deity, he is just a role model, and a teacher. A buddha is somebody who has come into direct contact with the divine and is so spiritually realized that they have transcended all forms of suffering, have a unified perspective of The All, and are perpetually in a state of connection to God.

    Rise above.
