A Christian at the Swap Meet
I went ot the swap meet today and a guy passing out pamphlets tried giving me one. I told him I was Buddhist and we got to talking. He had some basic knowledge of all religions and beliefs. He didn't act judgemental at all. He told me he didn't own anything except the clothes on his back and his bible. He lived at th emission. He said he was happy with what God had given him. We got to talking about the bible and I mentioned the first and tenth commandment contradicted each other. I recited them and instead of making up something he said what I said made sense and he had to look up an explanation. I gave him my phone number and he said he would give me a call. I also asked him to explain why God would have to send his son here to forgive us of our sins being that God made all the rules and could just say we are forgiven. He didn't have an answer but his faith was not swayed. I didn't want to sway his faith at all. I told him there are Buddhist Christians and muslim and Buddhist everything. He told me that people mix things upm and they are misguided. I will say his discipline was great. I used to get a little heated with these types but this time with my new outlook I was more interested in his answers without judgement. I am curious to see what he calls me with.
