Will G.W. Bush go to hell

Postby Stiphan » Fri Jun 12, 2009 9:34 pm

On page 79 of this book: , it says that being annoying to others can lead to hell.

Now, since George W. Bush is hated by many many people, would that mean he is more likely to go to hell?

BTW, I don't hate Bush.

Hi Stefan,

I think that it's better to use such teachings to review our own actions, rather than to speculate on the destination of others.

Hi Stefan
Mike makes an excellent point. The only thing I would add is to say that the destiny of GWB is irrelevant.
Kind regards

May George W. Bush be happy. May George W. Bush be peaceful. May George W. Bush be liberated.

Now .... is it what one intends to have happen, or what the results actually are, which creates our future states?

In which case, most of us have a lot to worry about.
