I think Buddism is one of the better religeons if you want to call that. A way of life is more like it.
Ego is an obstical you have to over come. Just put it aside like it wasnt even there.

Buddhism can't save you, only the shed blood of Jesus, can do that, because you are still a sinner, like all of us and the wages of sin is death. I'm talking about the second death of the your Soul. For every man will die a fleshly death. There is only one way to the Father and that is through Jesus. Put your Faith in Him!
 Quoting: Tips


Like the story of Solomon and the baby, you telling OP your way is the only way essentially cutting the baby in half. Every individual soul has to find their own way with whatever teacher fits. There is more than one way back to God, and remember the bible was written by man.

 Quoting: LDreamer100

I think your analogy is off. Solomon ordered the baby to be cut in half as a test to see which woman loved the baby more. Which ever woman said, "No! You can have the baby!" was the one who loved the baby more. That has nothing to do with what Yeshua/Jesus said when He said, "I AM the way, the Truth and the life, and no one may go to the Father but through Me."

You see, your argument is not with this poster, but instead is with Yeshua/Jesus Himself. He's the one who said it, so you may want to take it up with Him.

It can't simply be a case of "any teacher fits," because so many teachers are leading people in exact opposite directions or paths. They can't all be right. By self-definition if one is right, so many others can't be. And if you think they are mistaken, you are proclaiming that you know better than all those other teachers about their own religions. That seems to be a very arrogant position to take, don't you think?

God Himself said, "Here is my Son, in whom I'm pleased." Yeshua/Jesus was only doing His Father's will. And that includes when Yeshua/Jesus said that He is the only way.

The bible was indeed written by man, but by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to get it right. The bible is our instruction manual for a relationship with God. Why would He let us get it wrong? And if we think some of it is wrong, which parts are wrong? - just the parts we don't like? That cafe approach to spirituality is disingenuous. We can't pick and choose which parts we like, and which parts we don't like, if they don't fit within our preconceived box of interfaith/ecumenicistic thought.

there is no 'better' religion.
they are all control. ALL of them. PERIOD

once you start thinking for your self and look inward for answers instead of outwards to a deity then you will find real spirituality.

Do I call MYSELF Serenity? Or is that just an Avatar name? By the way, I picked it because my original name had been taken.

And typing "just sayin'" to me shows how far internet slang and Facebook speak has affected the minds of the weak. Be a bit more original..."Just sayin."

How do you know what serenity or lack off religious/Christian people have? I have great peace and joy in that I am secure for when the soon to be Great Tribulation kicks off. You cannot beat that serenity!

Re: Why I pick Buddhism over Religion, and achieve a higher level of serenity over religious people
OP, it seems that your ego has gotten the best of you to proclaim that you have achieved a higher level of serenity over religious people. There are many people, in many walks of life, in many stages in their spiritual development. This development goes up and down, depending on how much we turn ourselves away from the Love of the Supreme Being or not. The more we turn to ourselves for help, instead of the Love of Supreme Being, it will bring us either further away or closer to freedom. It is getting easier now to grow spiritually faster, but we can easily turn back too due to our limitations and difficulty in surrendering.

With this said, it is wonderful to see that you have found something to help you with your path. May it continue to bring you much peace and joy within your whole heart and whole being.

Many blessings my sibling.

Well...you're certainly "par for the course."

I'll have to admit...the OP is definitely more serene than you, and despite his/her egoic statement about being at a higher state of consciousness than those wrapped up in religion, I'll support the idea that they also are showing higher qualities of "Christ-like" wisdom than yourself. You're not a very good representative sample of those who follow your religion. That's for sure.

This is precisely what the OP was referring to when he stated that he had achieved a "higher level of serenity."

You helped prove his point, despite the fact that other intelligent people were trying to counter it with logic and LOVE.

BRAVO...Brilliant...

I guess I retract all of my previous statements about the OP not achieving a higher state of serenity than people like yourselves. -You helped him prove it...LITERALLY.

Serenity in this life is great. Eternal life, and all it entails, is availabe through one: the Lord Jesus Christ. He is alive, and you can ask Him to lead you to Truth. Don 't take my word for it. I am not promoting religion. I am suggesting an introduction to a living Person. He WILL reveal Himself if you ask Him.
