hey dan. what will happen to those that were born with a different religion than christianity?

i'm a buddhist and i don't want to convert to christianity. could god really be so cruel to favor those who had the luck to be born in a christian country?


what are your beliefs about this?

DanJ

Hey Mo, i don't think the primary issue in life is what cultural/national background we have - God wants every human being to be a part of His family.

The issue we have, ultimately, is that the "right path" to religious devotion and knowing God is determined by God, not by us. Sometimes people treat religion like a buffet - choose whatever you want. The problem with this "non-absolute-truth" way of looking at things is that there would be no "real" answer to any life question we have - if religion and the moral principles behind it are up to us, then what does it matter? Nothing would really be "true" and no action could really be "valuable."

But if the right path is up to God to determine - then we need to seek out His way rather than our own.

What will God do with honest seekers of truth who never had access to the Christian message? I'm not entirely sure. I have faith in God's justice in the end to sort that out.

I think that being born in a culturally "Christian" country can lead a person to think they are "automatically" a Christian - even if it really isn't in their heart. The Bible calls this hypocrisy, or "self-deception." That's what I observe a lot of in America, at least.

Here's a link to something I wrote for people coming from a Buddhist perspective. Let me know what you think... http://www.absolutetruth.net/2008/04/christian-tho-2.html

well. what do you expect me to think? basically you argue that i am a non-believer.

i personally believe that the pope is the antichrist and that jesus' teachings got censored and misinterpreted.


if an open mind and heart looks at any religion, it will find the parallels among all teachings. if the antichrist looks at it, it will find diversity and wrongness.

so basically i think you're a follower of the antichrist :) ... but i know you have good intentions. and i know god won't punish you, because he's not a punisher. nor could he be. he just is. and he loves everything, even the antichrist.


amen

mo

hey dan, please dont feel offended. i'm just a kid. what do i know?

DanJ

Don't worry, I'm not offended at all. I'm glad you felt the freedom to share what you think on the site.

There is a whole lot of division out there in the world because people aren't willing to speak honestly with one another. I'm glad that you have an open heart and a desire to seek truth.

mo

hehe dan, but where will it lead us? do you think anyone will listen to me when i talk about our society being under the reign of the antichrist? not even you are listening.


people werent listening when i told them about spiritual enlightenment. people wont be listening when i tell them about the antichrist.


my mother starts to think i'm crazy. so will society. ironically, i found complete sanity and just want to share with the world. they're not listening. i'm honest.

are you all retarded people?, I mean don`t you have anything else to do? die you all, and get a real life

Is this a Catholic site or christian site ?

Sadly Catholic teaches says
Council of Trent: Canons on Justification.
Canon 30: "If any one saith, that, after the grace of Justification has been received, to every penitent sinner the guilt is remitted, and the debt of eternal punishment is blotted out in such wise, that there remains not any debt of temporal punishment to be discharged either in this world, or in the next in Purgatory, before the entrance to the kingdom of heaven can be opened (to him); let him be anathema."
The Truth of the Bible says :
"Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ," (Rom. 5:1).
"And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 14Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross," (Col. 2:13-14).

Hey MO

The fact you were born into a buddhist family really does not matter anymore.

You have been told the truth now.
That Jesus is God who came in the flesh and took on you punishment for sin.Like me and everyone else we have sinned before God.
Now MO God offers you the pardon from sin and the pardon from Hell. Ask Jesus to be you savior and ask him to forgive you. Seek after the Truth Jesus God.

MO you no longer have a excuse . I hope you choose Truth . Love you man !!

Hey Dan,
The biggest myth in the world is that Jesus is God. There is but one God, the Father. Jesus was Lord and Christ, that is "anoited one" and "Messiah". He did the will of the Father so that we could have relationship with God today and live righteously here. When we die, we'll get our reward, either a reward of a righteous person or unrighteous. The gift of God is eternal life, the reward of the righteous. We can only be righteous because He (God) is righteous. Anyone can be righteous by listening to the spirit of God that is calling all men.

Nor do I believe that the huge increase in federal government spending, on the stimulus programs and to help the banks, will be a major cause for concern, as long as American GDP will grow at a much more rapid rate during the next decade than will government spending.
