Quoting Dr. Paradigm Shift:" LEGIONS of Buddhist monks, all hellbound-despite their peace work. "


According to the Bible, yes.

I'm sure they get to EVERYONE.



Can you not see the flaw in your logic here?

Part of why MANY of us want nothing to do with it. Give someone free will and then punish them for using it, even if they didn't know any better.



LMFAO.

No I don't see a flaw. I know that what the Bible says, I believe. Nothing you say is going to change that.

The Rig Veda states that the only way to Nirvana is through the ultimate truth of Krishna and the avatars. What makes the Bible right and the Vedas wrong?

I believe that since Jesus said that He is the Way, the Truth and the Life and that no man comes to the Father except through Him, that is what makes everything else wrong.

And seriously, there's nothing "ironic" about that.



Tell the desperate and uneducated a fairy tale with a promise of a better life and see how devout they become.




That's NOT irony.

Christian missionaries force their beliefs on innocent people who don't want to convert. There have been thousands ofdeaths in India alone because of them.

So if Princess Di was a non Christian during her life is she in Hell now despite all the good things she did for humanity?

You know Krishna? The one that Christians stole Jesuslife story from? He said he is the light of the world and enlightenment is achieved through him. The main difference is that hindus say you can call him Jesus if you want and they won't condemn you for it.



If Gandhi is burning in hell, I hope he saves some marshmallows for me. That's going to be one hell of a bonfire.

this is part of what;s so lazy and self righteous about some christians to me. "All I have to do is believe and say I'm sorry and YAYYYY heaven for me!!!!"



While people like Gandhi go to Hell. People who have done great things and cared for human kind---one hundred times more than most "christians" will ever do.



I'll hedge my bets on being a good person, thanks.

This is where I am at, and where I am going to leave it. There is no point in arguing and rustling feathers. I am a believer in Jesus Christ. I believe in the Trinity (The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit) I believe that Jesus is the Son of God. That he died for EVERYONE and offers EVERYONE salvation. I believe that he is the ONE AND ONLY way to Heaven. I believe that living my life for him is the only thing that I was created to do. And doing so, I live out being a loving wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend and so on. I believe that teaching my kids what I believe is imperative. I compare it to having the answer to life and sharing it. If you believed that you had the answers to life and death would you not share it with EVERYONE that you know?! Especially your kids? I believe that Jesus love everyone and that it's not my job to try and help you "cure your sin". I believe that if you serve Jesus, your life will change and you won't want to sin anymore. Will there still be days of weakness? Of course! Until the day you die! I also believe that the word of God has been distorted and diluted by a lot of "believers" today. My heart breaks when I see the hate and hypocrisy in the church today. I believe that everyone is given the choice to choose the living God, and a lot of people blatantly choose something else. I believe in a righteous judgement and I believe that His ways are so much higher than our own. My kids are taught to love, give of themselves, and live for Christ. Should they make a choice to step outside of the faith when they are older is ultimately up to them. I have and will continue to bask them in prayer from now until the day that I die. I understand that upon leaving this discussion I will be told that I am "avoiding, or can't answer important questions." I refuse to argue and try to make someone feel less valuable than I. I love debating, but there is a time to stop so that the seed can be planted and I move on. Hope that made sense :)
