Re: Are Christianity and Taoism compatible?
I've got a moment to offer a couple of 2¢. . .I dunno much about taoism except what I'm looking up right now, but keep in mind that there's a wealth of fairly key scriptural angles that Xtianity itself largely does not subscribe to: Christ within us, God as Sovereign, Christ slain from the foundation of the world, the scope of His sacrifice, the feminine aspect of the Holy Spirit, God eventually becoming "All in All", application of "equal weights & measures"->being judged as we have judged others, most of the Sermon on the Mount, etc. Thus, a grain of salt may be advisable ;)

The growing understanding of quantum physics is eclipsing the old, static models (which are essentially idols, per scriptural definition).
A great book you may find interesting is "Quantum and Non-Quantum States of The Lord Jesus Christ" by a Vincent Speckhart. Heavy stuff that reaches beyond the encrusted standards of Laodicean churchism. A quote: << Since Christ is the foundation of the Quantum State and since the energy of every quantum state is superpositioned in every other quantum state, energy of Christ superpositioned in every part of the Quantum States is able to annihilate all antiparticles in creation. >> (Colossians 1:20, Psalm 22:27, Habakkuk 2:14, Revelation 5:13, 2 Corinthians 5:19-21, Philippians 2:9-11, etc.)

I once heard it pointed out that in the original Hebrew texts, the terms "good" & "evil" most purely boil down to the concepts of function & dysfunction. And in the same vein, it's not uncommonly taught that "sin" equates to an archery term, essentially meaning "to miss the mark". Concepts in scripture are today largely over-dramatized and exaggerated from the practical into a form of carnal pageantry.Corporately, we've strayed from the old ways.

As I'm sure you're aware, they don't like"isms", and if they can slap a label on something, that label makes it suspicious. It's a sadly effective shortcut to remaining on the treadmill. (And my apologies to those mired therein, but eventually the call to "Come out of her" hits home and it's clearly time to climb out of the playpen).

I can neither recommend nor denounce taoism per se, but I do advise an open mind to perhaps something bigger & better than our various established short-sighted approaches. If taoism is any *good* for us, there will likely at some point arise parallels with concepts that have been buried in scripture over ages of leavened re-translations and chicken-fried bias.

I am not an expert on Taoism...
Just be careful:

"See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ."

..........

Was the "thief on the cross" with Jesus, under the First Covenant(Old Testament) or under the



New Covenant (New Testament) ?






15 For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance—now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.

16 In the case of a will,[d] it is necessary to prove the death of the one who made it, 17 because a will is in force only when somebody has died; it never takes effect while the one who made it is living. 18 This is why even the first covenant was not put into effect without blood.

...... 18 The former regulation is set aside because it was weak and useless 19 (for the law made nothing perfect), and a better hope is introduced, by which we draw near to God.

Are there requirements of a New Covenant(New Testament)....for men and women today?



Are they the same requirements of the 1st century and the New Testament?



What are the requirements for men and women today?



Can men and women obtain salvation today outside of the requirements of Jesus?



Some "religious leaders" say ALL roads lead to salvation.



Jesus says, "13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

Re: Are Christianity and Taoism compatible?
Christian Tao

What then is the Tao of Christ? The way, or the path, that we walk should align with the path He has set before us. We should walk in His footsteps in our lives as spiritual individuals. Here are just three parallels between Tao and Christ’s Way.

Humility.

The Tao Te Ching chapter 7 teaches “…the wise person puts himself last, and thereby finds himself first,” and Matthew 20:28 records Jesus saying He came to serve rather than be served. Prior to this, in verse 16, Jesus is recorded as saying the last will be first. Furthermore Tao 40 reads that “Reservation is the action of Tao. Quietness is how it functions,” and we see Jesus facing injustice and mockery silently in Matthew 27:11-31. Jesus’ Way is one of humility and quietness.


Contentment.

Tao 80 teaches, “Let people’s responsibilities be few…Let them be content with their clothes, satisfied with their homes, and take pleasure in their customs.” Jesus’ teachings on contentment are similar in Matthew 6:25-34. Also Tao 9 says, “Amass possessions, establish possessions, display your pride: Soon enough disaster will drive you to your knees.” Does Jesus not warn as much in Luke 12:13-21? Luke 9:58 reveals that Jesus claims no home as His own, but He goes about His work as the embodiment of contentment rather than ambition.


Peace.

Tao 43 reads: “The soft overcomes the hard in the world as a gentle rider controls a galloping horse.” Isn’t this similar to how Jesus says we should answer enmity in Matthew 5:43-48? In chapter 31, the Tao teaches, “A person of Tao values peace and quiet…His enemies are his enemies second, his own brothers and sisters first.” Do we not see this epitomized in Jesus’ life when the mob comes to get him in John 18, and Jesus heals one attacked by Peter. By His life, Jesus shows us He is the Prince of Peace.

Re: Are Christianity and Taoism compatible?
From the same link as above...


As Christians, our lives are to be epitomized by self-control and restraint. The central key to living in peace and harmony with others, in living contentedly, and in living humbly before man and God is the simple quality of self-control. Sometimes, such restraint may seem foolish as does the word of God in I Corinthians 1:18-25 or in the Tao chapter 41: “When a wise person hears Tao, he practices it diligently…When an inferior person hears Tao, he roars with laughter.” We are not conformed to this world, but rather we are seeking to conform to the divine nature of Christ. That journey begins with a principle the Taoist understands well: self control.

Using I Ching or yijing without reading the "Zhou yi" is like playing with a ouija board at best.

Read the parable of the prodigal son.

God as Taoist master.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 15301379


Tao is God
 Quoting: A Friend


Some people say creation is God.

That is like the people who mistake God for light, which is only part of creation.

God is prior to creation and the separation of opposites like light and darkness.

Tao represents a balance of opposites.

God is still beyond that because he is outside of it and he works with the balance of opposites.

Creation is always immersed on the Tao, or the play of opposites, but thanks to God breathing his essence into man, people are capable of using their imaginations to step outside of it and see it from God's perspective.

It is not the same thing as being God, but something like being the image of God.

Demonic spirits could recognize the spirit of God instantly in Jesus because he could look upon them, without fear, as manifestations of the Tao.

Taoism is useful for understanding creation, just as science is useful for many things, but neither of them is a substitute for relationship with God, which Jesus represents.

God is a person, and relationship to God is so personal that only a person can truly do it. Not angels or devils, or anything in creation. Personality itself is prior to creation, and prior to the division of opposites.

Persons are essentially whole beings.

When Jesus urged us to be perfect like our Father in Heaven, he was talking about our essential, undivided, and indivisible wholeness as persons.

We can be perfect.

We aren't the Tao, but we are immersed in it.

We can observe it and work with it.

Re: Are Christianity and Taoism compatible?
Six pages and no one has mentioned Saint Francis of Assisi? Here we have the full fruiting of a Tao Master who used Christian language. He didn't need to know the word Tao, I believe "spirit" or Holey Ghost would suffice. As far as the Taoists are concerned, it is the undefined, while any name or sexual assignment (such as Father or Mother) are defined metaphors, no longer potent. Taoism WORKS because it is compatible with the reality of constant change and the flow of the Tao in Nature. It is unselfish. These things are abstract ways of being and looking and expecting, not blocks of lead like "Penance" or "Being Saved". Those metaphors belong to the lower world of Rulers and Slaves.

Being "spiritual" wont get you to Heaven.

There's more important stuff than "getting into Heaven"

Re: Are Christianity and Taoism compatible?
Toaism branched off from The School of Naturalists or the School of Yin-yang
yin (dark, cold, female, negative) and yang (light, hot, male, positive) and the Five Elements or Five Phases (water, fire, wood, metal, and earth)

What is the image of Yin-Yang?

It is the image of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

You decide.

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

Re: Are Christianity and Taoism compatible?
Of course not. Taoism is just another false religion leading you to hell.

Next you'll say you're into Chrislam.

You stay away from those eastern mystics if you know what's good for you, they will take you to depths of depravity you don't want to reach.

Also you need to look over your salvation. It sounds like it didn't take seeing you are ready to now embrace one of Satans religions.

You've been cautioned, what happens next is on your head.
 Quoting: -GLP-Christian-


If you think ANYONE is going to hell, obviously you aren't a true Christian.

Eternal suffering makes no sense, when anyone and everyone deserves redemption. Not just for themselves, but for the universe itself.

All religion holds truth. It's up to you to decide where to look.
However, taking one side and sticking with it is foolish no matter what.

Re: Are Christianity and Taoism compatible?
Six pages and no one has mentioned Saint Francis of Assisi? Here we have the full fruiting of a Tao Master who used Christian language. He didn't need to know the word Tao, I believe "spirit" or Holey Ghost would suffice. As far as the Taoists are concerned, it is the undefined, while any name or sexual assignment (such as Father or Mother) are defined metaphors, no longer potent. Taoism WORKS because it is compatible with the reality of constant change and the flow of the Tao in Nature. It is unselfish. These things are abstract ways of being and looking and expecting, not blocks of lead like "Penance" or "Being Saved". Those metaphors belong to the lower world of Rulers and Slaves.

I don't know much about Saint Francis of Assisi. I will look him up, thank you.

I know Jesus is the Way. What I wonder is if the Way and the Way are the same Way. LIke once you walk with Jesus you are both on the Way together.
