Once again, Christian evangelists have abused Buddhists and Muslims, this time by the National University of Singapore (NUS) Campus Crusade for Christ (CCC):
The small text circled in red above reads:
“In a country where much of the population is M, much prayer and work is needed in this place. As our first team to be sent to this place, you will be reaching an unreached people group. This is a pioneer work where you will get to help start movement on their campuses! … …”
Please make a stand and tell the insensitive religious zealots that enough is enough. Check out and LIKE the Facebook page Say Yes to Religious Harmony.
It’s ok to discuss and compare religions but it’s a no-no to abuse others’ religion no matter how “well-intentioned” you are or how much you “love” them. How can you love someone when you don’t even respect the person in the first place?
Please stop offensive evangelism and unethical proselytism now.
「至於與『祂者』相遇的經驗，在解脫道與菩薩道的正常道，是比較沒有，但是菩薩道中的方便道──念佛法門，把心念全然地繫緣在佛陀，而不是在自己。這種心念的運作機制，與基督教與 holy other 相遇的經驗不完全相同。原因是，即使念佛念到於定中見到佛陀的影像現前，甚至聽到佛陀說話，都依然知道這是『唯心所現』、是『因緣生法』，並非真實的 holy other 現在面前。這就是所謂的『念佛三昧』，它基本上還是自力的。但為何要把佛陀當做念茲在茲的對象？其功用在於無形中的潛移默化，在專注地向佛認同的過程中，逐漸地提升自己；在敬仰佛陀，以佛陀為典範，向佛陀看齊的虔敬心中，以精進力趨向佛道。」
7 mins 22 secs into the video, Nabbi Ram Singh related his shocking observation:
“Once I was called to a village for some antenna work. When my two friends and I had finished their work, we passed a local church on our way to the car.
There were about 250 poor people waiting to go inside the church. 3 priests, in long white ropes, were ordering these people to step on pictures of different Hindu Gods, which they had placed on the steps of the church. This was to prove that they had renounced the Hindu Gods by converting into Christianity.
Later, it came to my knowledge, that they were also ordered to burn pictures of our Hindu Gods. My friends and I were very shocked, because if you stepped on pictures of Hindu Gods, it’s very difficult to return to the Hindu faith.
Poor people choose to become Christians, because the Church promised them advantages, things that would take the Indian government a long time to deliver, and they promised them healing from all diseases just by coming to the Sunday prayers in the church.”
