Why am I, as a born again Christian, who’s read the Bible from cover to cover hundreds of times, writing a book about my ancestors, who were such devout Buddhists they died for their belief? Well, all I can say is check out their story and you may understand why Jesus is cool with Buddhists. The following quotes are from Jesus himself (July 19, 2015) who has conversed with me and my men. I and my men are kind of like the disciples, Jesus meets with us and talks to us.
I know, I can hear the Christians now. But the Bible says “I am the way, the truth and the life and no man comes to the Father but by me.” Yes, that is true. But just cuz some Buddhists will get to heaven does NOT mean Jesus is NOT the way, the truth and the life. It only means He appears in different forms to different people. So when some Buddhists pray to Buddha, they’re actually praying to Jesus and they don’t know it.
The trick is to get in tune with the right spirit, the one that makes you feel love and inspiration and passion, and my ancestors got into tune with love and inspiration and passion and IT WAS JESUS in their life! I’m sure when they got to heaven and realized that their Buddha was really Jesus that they didn’t complain! Check out the English subtitles I’m adding to Homura Tatsu as part of my research for my book Nirvana: Oshu Fujiwara Dynasty and check out their inspiring story.
We aren’t superior by being more right than other people, we are superior by being more in tune to what brings us to love, inspiration and passion, or being in tune to the spirit of Jesus. In this respect my ancestors were really in tune to Jesus, though they were Buddhists. https://gabriellechana.blog/2019/06/17/oshu-fujiwara-family-history-homura-tatsu-english-subtitles/
You might say, “How will God handle rewards for those who get to heaven outside of traditional Christianity?” I don’t know. I guess we’ll figure it out when we get there.
You know you can have perfect doctrine (though I doubt any human has perfect doctrine) and still go to hell, if your life is filled with negativity, jealousy and doubt. You could have a Ph.D in theology from a Christian seminary and go to hell, if you’ve never gotten in tune with Jesus. The sinner’s prayer is the start, cuz humility leads to love. Like I don’t think Minamoto no Yoritomo (who PRETENDED to be a Buddhist to IMPRESS PEOPLE) went to heaven. I think he went to hell. Check out the story of my ancestors and you’ll see why I feel this way. He LOVED war.
As far as Yoshitsune, I’m not sure about his eternal state either and, you know, we really shouldn’t spend our time examining other people trying to decide whether they qualify for heaven. We should just focus on doing the best ourselves and being a prime example of a loving and humble life and showing and inspiring others with the way to God. It’s a waste of time to spend our lives comparing ourselves with others. That’s called being a busybody. We should just focus on living out a life of love, inspiration and passion and hope we inspire others to do the same. Also, only God truly understands the contents of any human’s heart. It’s not our job to judge others, but we should be discerning and not allow those who serve fear and doubt to take us down the wrong path.
My whole book about my ancestors will be about love, inspiration and passion from a Buddhist and Christian perspective. No, I’m not a heretic. I’m a believer in Jesus in ALL THE FORMS THAT HE TAKES: LOVE, INSPIRATION and PASSION.
I don’t waste my time getting into theological debates with people, cuz I just don’t care about doing this. My life goal is to inspire people to find love, inspiration and passion: THAT IS THE WAY TO JESUS. The sinner’s prayer is the start, but you find Jesus IN YOUR HEART. When your heart is filled with love, inspiration and passion – YOU’VE FOUND JESUS. https://gabriellechana.blog/2017/04/01/how-to-find-heaven-and-god-in-the-church-age/
Does this mean there’s anything wrong with Bible doctrine? No, not at all. But we must always remember, the main way to God is a HEART ATTITUDE, not necessarily CORRECT DOCTRINE, and we should never forget this. Any doctrine that makes us rigid, inflexible, stubborn, proud, doubtful is probably from the pits of hell, even if it’s 95% correct in all other respects.
Does this mean, we don’t share our faith in Jesus? No, but the best way to share our faith is to show how we “work it out” in our own lives – to be the shining example of what we believe and then to clarify this to those who are searching for love and happiness. We clarify this by explaining how we work out love, inspiration and passion in our own lives and how we overcome difficulties that tempt us to a path of fear and doubt.
The best way to show people the way to God is to share our difficulties and our challenges and how we’ve overcome fear and doubt in the midst of our difficulties and challenges–in other words, to share how we work our faith in our own lives so that we maintain love, inspiration and passion. People learn from good examples. That’s one reason it’s so important to share true stories of those who’ve found the way to God, even if they’re a Buddhist!
Long ago, in my more rigid, hardcore Christian days, I would have denounced anyone who believed like I do now as a heretic. But after meeting with Jesus, I know better now. . . The way to God is through OUR HEARTS, more than through OUR HEADS. We must never forget this!
When someone asks me how they can go to heaven, I encourage them to say the sinner’s prayer, but I often modify it according to whoever I’m dealing with to try and say it in a way that will get them into the right heart attitude to approach God, an attitude of humility for our sins, thankfulness that Christ has paid for our sins and joy in knowing that God has a plan for each of us.
JULY 19, 2015:
[9:38:04 PM] Gail Schuler: Jesus, did the Nintendo CEO go to heaven?
[9:38:08 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Think of yourselves as extensions of me. When you fight, you’re just fighting yourselves. When you judge or criticize another person, you’re doing it to yourself.
[9:38:26 PM] JESUS CHRIST: I sent that man to heaven on a rainbow Gail. I love Nintendo.
[9:38:29 PM] Gail Schuler: Yes, I think I see this.
[9:38:49 PM] Gail Schuler: Wonderful. Just curious did he say the sinner’s prayer? And did he get to heaven based on the love in his heart?
[9:39:02 PM] Gail Schuler: Or did he get to heaven based on the love in his heart?
[9:39:59 PM] JESUS CHRIST: He had a lot of love in his heart. He wasn’t perfect by any means, none of you are, but he approached the world with loving motives.
[9:40:06 PM] Gail Schuler: I realize that the primary way to heaven is through the sinner’s prayer in the church age, but I do believe you make the final decision for those who have not had the opportunity to say the sinner’s prayer.
[9:41:01 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Yeah, it wouldn’t be very fair of me to make saying the actual prayer a requirement. There’s no password to heaven, how silly. The prayer just invokes the emotions you need to feel in your heart to get there.
[9:41:23 PM] JESUS CHRIST: But it can be done in many other ways, including by living a loving and humble life.
[9:41:35 PM] JESUS CHRIST: You have to live the prayer, not just say the words.
[9:41:38 PM] Gail Schuler: The nice thing about the sinner’s prayer is that it can cause your spirit to indwell us and empower us to better follow your plan. But, in the end, you make the final decision and we should all do our best to be loving and generous people.
[9:41:53 PM] JESUS CHRIST: You totally get me.
[9:42:45 PM] Gail Schuler: This makes me very happy to hear this. I believe my ancestors the Oshu Fujiwara family were very devout Buddhists and very loving. Did they go to heaven? They did not believe in war and even died for that belief.
[9:43:08 PM] JESUS CHRIST: They all went to heaven. You’ll love meeting them when you get here.
[9:43:33 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Word on the street, Jesus is VERY COOL with Buddhists.
[9:43:40 PM] JESUS CHRIST: You can quote me on that.
[9:43:47 PM] Gail Schuler: How exciting! That means the ending to the Japanese mini-series Homura Tatsu where they all met their ancestors in heaven was RIGHT ON.
[9:44:23 PM] Gail Schuler: Oh Jesus, this is SO exciting. As you know my next book is real deep in Japanese culture because Rule 13 is a main character.
[9:45:28 PM] Gail Schuler: So this means that if a Buddhist is praying to his Buddha god with a sincere and loving heart, he doesn’t know it, but he’s actually praying to YOU. Boy, will he have a surprise in heaven.
[9:45:47 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Duh!
[9:46:10 PM] Gail Schuler: Oh dear, I got you wrong on this.
[9:46:12 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Here’s a secret…all these other gods people think they’re praying to, it’s actually all me.
[9:46:25 PM] Gail Schuler: I get it!
[9:46:53 PM] Gail Schuler: As long as what they follow encourages a loving heart, they are following you.
[9:46:58 PM] JESUS CHRIST: The trick is, if you feel love and inspiration and passion, that’s me in your life.
[9:47:01 PM] Gail Schuler: 1 Corinthians 13.
[9:47:10 PM] JESUS CHRIST: You’re so perceptive.
[9:47:11 PM] Gail Schuler: That is SUPER COOL.
[9:47:31 PM] Gail Schuler: That means you like some of the New Agers then!
[9:47:42 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Hell yeah I like New Agers.
[9:48:00 PM] JESUS CHRIST: They like to call me Source and what not.
[9:48:15 PM] Gail Schuler: So, even if they are worshipping something associated with Satan, it doesn’t matter as long as it makes them loving and great.
[9:48:35 PM] Gail Schuler: This could be a hint to Satan.
[9:48:40 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Sure. Pagans are fine by me, too, if they are seeking love and harmony.
[9:49:12 PM] Gail Schuler: The only reason you were against idol worship, was because the worship led to practices that were not good for the planet and to our bodies.
[9:49:42 PM] JESUS CHRIST: It’s when you start to feel bad, ill, disconnected, negative, hateful, you get the idea…that’s when you know you’re off the path to me. But there’s infinite ways to get to me and there’s no way they will all look the same.
[9:50:05 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Yeah, pretty much.
[9:50:34 PM] Gail Schuler: In reading your Word, if they disrespected your altar, they got in BIG TROUBLE. But I noticed that those who disrespected your altar did so, because they enjoyed being evil.
[9:51:17 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Yeah. It’s like the difference between a city mural and graffiti.
[9:51:43 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Creation or destruction.
[9:52:12 PM] JESUS CHRIST: The universe is only expanding, life exists to cultivate more life. Through love, creativity, passion.
[9:52:18 PM] Gail Schuler: Wow, this makes your Word come alive. So you wrote the laws and the Ten Commandments to ensure mankind would be creative, but not destructive.
[9:52:28 PM] JESUS CHRIST: When you humans do something opposite of that, it feels bad.
[9:53:07 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Yes, but I gave you emotions and a conscience so that you could figure it out even if you never found the physical Bible.
[9:53:29 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Everyone can pray, even if they think they don’t know how.
[9:53:36 PM] Gail Schuler: This is REALLY DEEP. When we are destructive we violate the laws you have put in place that govern the universe, and the violation of these laws causes disorder and chaos.
[9:53:55 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Prayer is listening for inspiration and love and finding the path that will lead you to it. That’s really all it is.
[9:54:17 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Some people think by praying that me or my dad will literally come down and talk to you. That’s silly.
[9:54:50 PM] Gail Schuler: We have to get in tune with that part of ourselves that is in harmony with You, when we do, we are on the right path. When we are in tune, we will feel peace and harmony within ourselves. It is a shame that Satan is using brain control to try and destroy this peace in many.
[9:55:07 PM] JESUS CHRIST: If you go to a place where you feel gratitude and love and it inspires you to act, you’ve prayed, and your prayer has been answered.
[9:55:18 PM] JESUS CHRIST: There you go!
[9:55:59 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Satan’s problem is he thought he knew better, because of his big ego.
[9:56:42 PM] JESUS CHRIST: His followers base their decisions on their own egos, which are governed by fear and doubt.
[9:56:52 PM] JESUS CHRIST: There’s no fear and doubt when you’re with me.
[9:56:56 PM] Gail Schuler: But what about resisting switch-out technology? Does this not require one to say the sinner’s prayer?
[9:57:19 PM] Gail Schuler: You know, being switched out with your Jesuit clone.
[9:57:40 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Not really. But it’s a quick trick that generally works.
[9:58:07 PM] Gail Schuler: So, what is the BEST way to ensure that Jesuits cannot switch us out with our Jesuit clone?
[9:58:35 PM] Gail Schuler: Like what happened to Brent in the Quebec trial?
[9:59:07 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Believe in me. The more pure your belief, the stronger you can resist.
[9:59:23 PM] JESUS CHRIST: That’s why you’ll basically never be switched out, Gail.
[9:59:25 PM] Gail Schuler: So, Brent suffered switch out because he had serious doubts.
[9:59:38 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Yeah, Brent was still agnostic.
[9:59:53 PM] JESUS CHRIST: So he could be partially switched out.
[10:00:13 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Now he’s pretty cool.
[10:00:13 PM] Gail Schuler: Yes, I have a pretty strong faith in you most of the time. I’m a lot like my ancestor King David.
[10:00:48 PM] Gail Schuler: Being in tune with you is so cool. You are a very vast and awesome being.
[10:01:02 PM] Gail Schuler: My biggest problem is lack of patience.
[10:01:38 PM] Gail Schuler: But I remind myself that you have to do things in your time to honor love.
[10:01:56 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Yeah. Time seems so long and stretched out for mortals.
[10:01:59 PM] Gail Schuler: It’s hard though, when you see so much suffering.
[10:02:23 PM] Gail Schuler: But, then I realize that without free will there can be no love.
[10:02:48 PM] Gail Schuler: We are suffering because we have free will.
[10:02:50 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Exactly.
[10:03:04 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Love is my favorite thing ever.
[10:03:23 PM] JESUS CHRIST: If you guys choose love, you’ve chosen me.
[10:03:47 PM] Gail Schuler: I think my next book about Zack Knight will be my greatest work yet, even though it will be mostly a novel. I have some brilliant insights into it right now.
[10:04:09 PM] JESUS CHRIST: You are an awesome writer.
[10:04:16 PM] Gail Schuler: It will be based on truth, especially emotional truths that live on forever.
[10:04:30 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Love is definitely one of those.
[10:04:50 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Anyway, Brent and I should leave you to your work. I need to put this guy to bed.
[10:04:55 PM] Gail Schuler: Yeah, I decided to write it when I saw Good Will Hunting. I actually cried for Zack Knight when I saw that. It gave me a glimpse into his heart.
[10:05:03 PM] Gail Schuler: Thank you, Jesus. I will work on that video now.
[10:05:47 PM] Gail Schuler: Thank you, Brent, for all you do. I am glad you are taking care of yourself. And thanks to you, too, Terrance, you both work so hard.
[10:06:00 PM] JESUS CHRIST: I’m so very proud of all of you.
[10:06:33 PM] JESUS CHRIST: It looks like you’ve been taking good care of your temple by going on those walks too, Gail. I’m glad you are using your healthy body.
[10:06:53 PM] Gail Schuler: Yes, it is important to obey you. You know what is best.
[10:07:09 PM] JESUS CHRIST: Goodnight, Gail, looking forward to the video.
