Buddhism 2


We have examined and answered:

  1. Reincarnation, and found there is no real proof.
  2. The Dalai Lama’s claims of consecutive life/death/rebirth, and found many inconsistencies with the story.
  3. The Dalai Lama’s methods of being discovered lend themselves to a great deal of probable error, if not outright coaching of candidates what to say/do.

In this post, we examine the 50 million dollar question – who set up the system of the karmic wheel, life/death/rebirth/nirvana?

This is a major area in which Buddhism falls apart.

“Who created the Universe?”

The answer is usually, “The universe has always been here.” or “it created itself.”

So – nothing plus nothing equals everything, then.

Logically, this falls apart immediately.

SOMEBODY put together this system. Someone organized it. Someone set up the rules we all play by. There’s a definite order to the way Buddhists believe. Without a supreme being, a God, the order becomes suspect.

Who determines whether a person ascends or descends the karmic wheel? Who examines ones motives? Actions? Thoughts? The eightfold path places emphasis upon these things.

If we see a rich prince depart from luxury and depart to become a monk, and then become disillusioned with the false religion he’s in – we can well understand Buddhism. it sounds logical – but without a God, the whole system breaks down VERY rapidly.

Apostasy reigns around us, churches are sliding into worldiness, a whitewashed Gospel is preached everywhere... "Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Jeremiah 6:16 (KJV) So, I'm speaking out. ...Why aren't you???
