    Was Jesus An Enlightened Buddha? Was he Buddhist?

    Was the young Jewish guy enlightened (in the young Hindu guy's sense) ? ...Not sure...But according to gossip opsss gospels (which more often than not can lead to Chinese whispers, when being written down), he was meant to have been wise beyond his years...

    However it would seem that his wisdom has only rubbed off on a few of his so-called "Christ-Like" followers, who have looked within for experiential understanding...In other words they didn't take the gospels as gospels, (just believed what was said) they looked within and saw for themselves, so to speak...

    So there is perhaps a brighter side to his teachings....

  • Re: Sexual Misconduct

    Umm which remind me...

    "Sex is terrible, sinful, aberrant, disgusting, degrading.....Now be fruitful and multiply, and repopulate the earth."

    Is it any wonder that many Westerners in bible-centric societies are f@#ked up (pun intended :) ) when it comes to being open about sex........Go figure :)
