Demonic Bhuddism ?
I believe that God has a purpose for allowing many non Christian faiths to flourish. These faiths serve a purpose to fulfill prophecy – at least that is a purpose that is visible to us.
All of our attention regarding these faiths has focuses primarily on the role of Islam and their persecution of Christians, their hatred towards Israel and the permeation of their culture in the West.
Hinduism and Buddhism are the eastern religions that have influenced new age thought/belief systems the most. These new age ideas have permanently entered western culture in a seemingly innocent and innocuous way – such as yoga, feng shui, reiki, etc.. There are many practices attributed to these eastern religions that have made their way into the Christian Church, such as meditation and the adaptation of mantras as influenced by the breath prayers of the early Christian Desert fathers.
Many Christians do not feel threatened from Buddhist practice because there has been no history of Buddhists persecuting Christians throughout history to create a cultural meme, and Buddhism has always been perceived as a peaceful philosophy. Western culture has been adorned with laughing Buddha statues, and the concept of buddha coexisted peacefully with the west. It eventually became very fashionable for many westerners to adopt Buddhism as their faith, and Tibet became vogue.
Buddhist belief involves spirits. There are many spirits that exist in the unseen world and the Buddhists contact them in specific rituals. The Dalai Lama conducts an annual consultation with oracles, a ceremony which involves a spirit taking over the body of designated mediums. The Dalai Lama consults with this spirit regarding spiritual matters and matters of state.
For the first time, the Dalai Lama gave his permission for this ceremony, which is attended by so many Buddhists, to be filmed. Below is the documentary, and I warn you that it may be disturbing to many.
This is outright conjuring and consultation with unseen forces. It appears to be demonic possession. Why then am I posting this, you may ask?
I am posting this because there is a darker side to Buddhism than the flowery, peaceful aspect that has been promoted in the West. If you see the ritual, you will understand what I mean. This are many non suspecting Westerners who may be disillusioned with their spiritual experiences so far and are seeking answers in peaceful Buddhism. The peaceful approach to world politics expressed by the Dalai Lama in his views may attract many unsuspecting Westerners who never embraced Christ and who are upset with the violent conditions of the world today.
The Dalai Lama makes it very clear on his site that Buddhism is a faith that has no belief in a creator. It centers around the human. Today’s counterfeit Christianity is trying to instill the same message. Look at the modern Bible translations, the way certain Churches have become industries, the contorted and twisted way the media and many ‘teachers’ profess the Gospel. It is all about the individual today in order to excuse the vile and sordid behavior of society. Christ is being taken out of the scene for many. So many people are going to be engulfed by faith systems that have distanced themselves completely from Christ and by systems that never have included Him or God, which acknowledge, however, a world of unseen entities.
We know that Buddhism is Godless and void of Jesus Christ. However, how many know that their leaders officially consult unseen entities for guidance? These spirits take possession of the person used as the medium and cause them to hiss and writhe and spurt out the information the Dalai desires to learn. Need I say more?
I am just sounding an alarm that many other philosophy/faith systems have demonic influences even though this aspect of their faith is not normally made known to the West. Many young people are drawn to these belief systems, unsuspecting and uninformed – I am just sounding an alarm.
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Ephesians 6 11:13
