Why not Buddha or Confucius?

By Adrian Rogers

BIBLE MEDITATION:
…and thou shalt call His name Jesus: for He shall save His people from their sins. Matthew 1:21

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
Are Christians fools for believing in Jesus? Are we serving a false God? If you go to the tomb of Confucius, you’ll find it’s occupied. If you go to the tomb of Buddha, it’s occupied. But if you go to the tomb of Jesus, you’ll find it empty. He is a risen Savior.

Now that’s very important, because you can take Confucius out of Confucianism and still have Confucianism. Take Buddha out of Buddhism—you still have Buddhism. But you cannot take Jesus Christ out of Christianity and still have Christianity because Christianity is not a code. It’s not a creed. It’s not a cause. It is Christ Himself.

ACTION POINT:
You have a hope that the world needs to hear about. Who can you share that hope with today?

  1. How wonderful that you have found Christ. I doubt very much you could take the Buddha away and still have the Buddha Dharma. The Buddha taught for 40 years and he was and still is an exemplary example. Enlightened energy does not disappear actually no energy disappears. Even Newton knew that.
    Can you tell me, why must so many Christians make others look bad in order to try to make themselves look good?

    • There is no such thing as “Enlightened energy”, that is a construct created by those seeking something they will never find. This “Enlightened energy” comes perilously close to other energies spoken of by various other practitioners that is in itself demonic in origin. As well, there is a HUGE difference between real scientific energy and “Enlightened energy” – scientific energy is simply converted to another form, not so with this other energy of which you speak of. As for Christians making others look bad, that is not at all what we strive to do. We offer the truth for anyone willing to accept it, the Truth of Christ, not our own truth which would be and is worthless. This is not about making ourselves look good, it is about speaking the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ – His truth, not ours. I can strive to be a better person 24 hours a day every day, it will avail me nothing as far as the “afterlife” goes. The only way to be saved is through Jesus Christ, we cannot save ourselves regardless of what we do. Have you EVER done anything wrong? That is a sin, and it only takes 1 sin to condemn us forever. Still, Jesus Christ came to this Earth, and gave up His own life that we may be saved through His sacrifice for us. THAT is how much God loves us. What other god lays down his own life to save you? NOT ONE!

Luke 21:36 "Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man."
