Dhamma Theives-- Christianity the counterfeit Teachings

Jesus admits throughout the Bible the teachings don't come from him but refuses to declare the father:

John 7:16 Jesus responded to them, "What I teach doesn't come from me but from the one who sent me.

The forgery or counterfeit Dhamma is predicted by Buddha in Saddhammapatirupaka Sutta:

But there is no disappearance of the true Dhamma, Kassapa, till a counterfeit Dhamma arises in the world; but when a counterfeit Dhamma arises, then there is a disappearance of the true Dhamma...

-----

Basically what this means is that those who counterfeited Buddhist Suttas as teachings of Jesus will not get what they were promised, just like getting gold dust is no substitute for real gold.

This means no entry into heaven. Christians will not have the right code to get in. Immigration policies are quite strict in heaven.

Christians in their deep ignorance and arrogance say Jesus was talking about the Jewish god-- far from the truth-- Jews NEVER used this word for god-- NEVER!

The key study by Jeremias'[Jerem.CentM, 19-27; see also Jerem.NTT, 65-8] takes a long and detailed look at this special term. To touch upon the high points briefly:

Jeremias notes that "Abba" had only come to mean "Father" when used among human beings - and adds that to use the term when referring to God was unthinkable. It was not used by Jews in such a familiar way until the Hasidim movement, which began in the 18th century. The use of "Abba" is "without analogy in the Jewish prayers of the first millenium A.D."

Christians essentially are like leaches, leaching off Buddhist stories and concepts and converting billions with counterfeit documents known as the New Testament:

The spiritual weakness, even falsehood, of a religion is proportionate to its refusal to acknowledge its real sources and borrowings, or worse, to colonize the literary, cultural and religious wealth of others, to vampirize away the lifeblood of the host system until it is weakened, or better, dies away. This institution- al dishonesty or denial will ultimately be its own undoing as history and science reveal the truth to the future.

Jesus admits teachings are not his-- but keeps father a secret!! Or do the New Testament writers try to destroy evidence of where the original teachings come from?

And Jesus cried out and said, "He who believes in me, believes not in me but in him who sent me. John 12:44

SO WHO SENT JESUS?

Jesus keeps crying out that the teachings are not his!!

John 7:16 Jesus responded to them, "What I teach doesn't come from me but from the one who sent me.

8:26 but he who sent me is true and what he has said to me I say to the world.

28 that I do nothing of myself, but as the Father taught me, I speak these things.

"for the Father is greater than I." John 14:28

So does Jesus simply say Buddha taught him these things? No. He is quite cryptic-- if you know me you know my father-- if you recognize my teachings you would know me also!!

John 8:12-20

I bear witness to myself, and the Father who sent me bears witness to me."

19 They said to him therefore, "Where is your Father?"

Jesus answered, "You know neither me nor my Father; if you knew me, you would know my Father also." 20

Daniel Hopkins, in his book, Father and Son, East is West (2007), gives the Buddhist sources of Christianity and their influence on medieval myths, in which he claims that the Jesus gospels were highly allegorical and mysterious in order to hide the name of Jesus’ father, which he claims was the Buddha’s name.

But Jesus, only a Buddhist would know who your father was-- for it is Buddha's teachings that you speak of!

Is this another way to trap demons?, ie liars so that the liars NEVER admit Buddha is the father and so the vast majority of ignorant Christians are sent to hell for denying, mocking and laughing at Buddha!!!!???

In my opinion, Jesus could be a Bodhisattva at the most, or an arahant. But there's a possibiity that Jesus never exist also or just likely an alien from another planet sent here to "fool" the people for the "2nd coming" later on.
Still Buddha reign supreme, a teacher of gods and men.
