Topic 10 – Agnostic Buddhism

-------------------------------------------------

 

P1001. There are two major forms of Buddhism (a) agnostic Buddhism and (b) poly-spiritistic Buddhism.

 

P1002. Buddha himself was an Agnostic. He said that he does NOT know if God exists. But he just wanted to give us a way to live our lives so as to attain a measure of mental peace in this life. Walk the middle path. Avoid the extremes of both hedonism and asceticism.

 

P1003. Since Buddha was an agnostic (not an atheist), there is no reason for such a Buddhist to object on principle against the Core of the Gospel in Christianity.

 

P1004. And since my primary interest in seeing if there is a God, I can validly move past such Agnostic-Buddhism to look at other religions (such as Christianity that DO answer the question of whether God exists).

 

P1005. AND, the teachings of Buddha (on how to live our lives so as to attain peace of mind) are similar in many aspects to the teachings of Christ.

 

P1006. So, such an agnostic Buddhist should have no objection (in principle) to following the teaching of Jesus for this life.

 

………………………….

C1001. So, Agnostic Buddhism provides NO reason to NOT accept the teachings of Jesus Christ.
