i believe in Jesus Christ
i believe in salvation
part of it is gaining Wisdom
read the Bible. read the King James Version. read the NLT. new living translation.
i believe some of the Bible was actually added later on. decide for yourself.
having said that, i also like the idea of everyone being bodhisattvas
a bodhisattva refuses to go to nirvana unless all beings are saved.
so i believe in collective salvation.
we watch TV. we are inundated with advertising concepts.
it is better to try to gain the Wisdom both from Christianity and Buddhism and ecology movements and simplicity
that says, no, you don’t need a second and third car to feel happy
you don’t need to somehow become a millionaire, a billionaire to be a worthwhile person
when there are people starving
and going without fresh water
i don’t know if i would want to be a billionaire. i would give it away.
yes i believe in survival of the human race. i also believe in survival of all the species on earth.
a mass extinction is going on.
i am getting into the books of Joanna Macy
i don’t know if i could forgive a God who would send people to hell forever and ever.
i believe in a Buddha of Compassion who has compassion for all people and all beings
it is merely another way of referring to God.
we need to get together and see what we can do for the rain forest, the wild places, the wild creatures on this planet.
