Can I post about my Christian belief anywhere on this forum?

Post by Ervin »

Hi everyone.

I was wandering if I can please post about my Christian belief anywhere here on this forum?

I have been into buddhism in the past and other religions but I am a Christian now and I would like to post my views/knowledge.

Thanks

Not really. It’s against the TOS. However I personally congratulate you on finding what is appropriate for you. I’m


from the TOS:
COMPARATIVE RELIGION

This is not a "comparative religion site". It is a site to learn about and discuss the Buddha's teachings without animosity. While some comparative discussions may be permitted at the discretion of the Moderation Team, it will be allowed only to the extent that such reference serves to illuminate a point about Buddha Dharma.

2. I support Mingyur R and HHDL in their positions against lama abuse.

Lama: Even If you had died the 3 Jewels would still have protected you. (DW post by Fortyeightvows)

Those who, even with distracted minds,
Entered a stupa compound
And chanted but once, “Namo Buddhaya!”
Have certainly attained the path of the buddhas.

-Lotus Sutra, Upaya Chapter

純一実相。実相外。更無別法。法性寂然名止。寂而常渉照名観。
There is only reality; there is nothing separate from reality. The naturally tranquil nature of dharmas is shamatha. The abiding luminosity of tranquility is vipashyana.

-From Guanding's Introduction to Zhiyi's Great Shamatha and Vipashyana

Well, if it is classed as 'contemplative' you could maybe post here:

Thanks for clarifying Ayu.

We do occasionally have good inter-faith discussions. On the other hand, if you only want to post in Buddhist forums to turn us all into Christians, that's (1) probably a waste of time because most of us are here because we have rejected Christianity and (2) totally inappropriate wrt forum rules.

No, you can't. It's explicitly against the terms of service to proselytize here. We wish you the best on your new spiritual path.

Hope this helps.
