Why Americans love the Dalai Lama

As I was reading cnn.com tonight, I noticed an article that was posted. The article was entitled “Why Americans love the Dalai Lama” (and we are not talking about Llama the animal that looks like a camel). So as I was reading the article to find out more about this man, I could not help but get annoyed and frustrated that a supposed Christian nation could actually revere such a man.

“I’d love to be in his presence. I’d love to be in an audience where he speaks,” said Jerilee Auclair, 55, of Vancouver, Washington, who has yet to have that pleasure. “I yearn for it. I watch his schedule to see if/when he’ll be in my area. … I love what he stands for. His inner peace inspires me to find mine, daily.” 

Did we just read this correct? I told yall we are living in the last days! No wonder America is in such a backslidden state. They’ve turned from their Christian roots and would prefer “influential speakers” like the Dalai Lama because of what he stands for. Let me set the record straight.

And given the Dalai Lama’s effect, his smile, his laughter, his sense of peace and gentle spirit, it’s no wonder people fall for him. Even if they haven’t had the chance to meet him.

The only “presence” that you need to be in and love is the presence of Jesus. The only teachings that you should love what they stand for are the teachings of Jesus. I’m not going to keep silent on this. The world needs to know about The Lord Jesus Christ and how He is the only Person that can give peace in the time of trouble. Read on Saints…..

“He stands for achieving peace by way of peace, and since Gandhi and Martin Luther King aren’t around, he’s a placeholder for that kind of position,” he said. “He says he’s a ‘simple monk,’ but that’s wishful thinking. He’s a monk that’s been saddled with the responsibility of shouldering the hopes and dreams of millions of Tibetan people. … He’s doing the best he can with that, and frankly, these are the kind of people we admire.”

Incorrect yet again! Any peace outside of Christ is utter chaos. Where are our Pastors and leaders of the Church age to stand up against these teachings. Yes we are to love everyone. Yes we are to witness to people and show them the more excellent way. No we are not to tolerate any other doctrine that Christ has not endorsed. Read what the scriptures say. Galations 1:8 says “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.”

This is one ole set up. You see, Satan made sure that Tiger Woods would be exposed for all of his immoral public and private behavior. Notice how Tiger Woods is the highest paid athlete in America. During Tiger Woods apology the other day on television, he mentioned that he was going back to his Buddhist roots and then OUT POPS THE DALAI LAMA to steer people into the teachings of Buddhism.

You know, I had no clue I was going to do a study on Buddhist beliefs but I thank God for Him leading me to write what I wrote concerning their false beliefs. Amazingly this public declaration is declared to all concerning the Buddhist faith and what do you know, I get thousands of hits from people wanting to know what Buddhism is all about. Amazing! With that said, don’t you let no Dalai Lama come into Christian territory and spread his false gospel of peace. Instead, get old school. Get you some tracts and start knocking on doors in the highway and hedges telling people of the soon coming King. Dont be fooled America, Jesus is coming. Would you want Him to find you reading your Bible or a book endorsed by “His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama” To read the article in its entirety, click here.

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.

  1. I’ve always wondered about the general public’s open arms regarding people like the Dali Lama also.

    Thank God that even before hearing the true Gospel, those of this lot didn’t interest me (and I’m thankful – I had made enough mess of things for the Lord to clean up)

    In a sermon a Bishop I sat under long ago preached a line that stuck with me. It goes like this: “The world will not know peace until it meets the Prince of peace.” The Prince of peace is NOT the Dali Lama, but the Lord Jesus Christ!

    Just like the bumper sticker: No Jesus . . . No Peace Know Jesus . . . Know Peace

  2. Love your comments. I think we need to all adopt that slogan (or at least start to openly teach it in the public arena).

    No Jesus
    No Peace
    Know Jesus
    Know Peace

    Amen to that!

  3. I am posting something I have posted elsewhere.

    Is this not a Catholic site? Why so many idolators of Dalai Lama?

    The Dalai Lama is god to the Tibetans. He knows it, and he behaves like god to them, giving stern warnings of bad after-life (karma) to those who defy him and promise good after-life to those who idolise and obey him.

    His excreta (solid and liquid) is made into medicine. That is the power of his buddha-hood in the eyes of his worshippers.

    But in front Americans, the Dalai Lama pretends he is an ordinary person.

    Do serious research please you guys. Don’t feed yourself on newspaper’s trash.

    First Things is a serious site which I used to read very often for serious Catholic articles many years ago.

    I hope serious scholars from First Things will do some serious research. There is no lack of scholarly research already done by American scholars from American universities on Tibet and the Dalai Lama.

    Just know one sure thing: Tibet would have collapsed without China. Before 1951 when the communist re-claim control over Tibet, 99 per cent of Tibetans suffered from venereal diseases. No modern medicine. No hospitals (except one British hospital for the Dalai Lama and his officials). The Tibetan population has been declining for many centuries. No schools – except those Buddhist learning in monasteries.

    For a start, you may want to read “Tibet sovereignty debate” on wikipedia where you can get many scholarly reference sources.

    And an 1940 article;

    Look up “Tibet”

    The trash is a sign that the days of the Dalai Lama are over!!! Catholics and Christians should rejoice that God will be removing one more idol. This is a living person idol. The Dalai Lama institution and its idolatry have brought tremendous harm to Tibet and Tibetan peoples for almost 400 years, or 800 years if you include the period before the Dalai Lama.

    I am prepared to write some serious articles on Tibet, Tibetan Buddhism, and the Dalai Lama for publication here, if First Things would consider publishing them. (I have contributed a big chunk to the wikipedia article, “Tibetan sovereignty debate” ). Would editors here consider publishing them?

  4. Apostolic Pentecost:

    Christian Americans are going astray. They are worshipping something else other than God. Things they worship include “freedoms”, “democracy”, “human rights”, and money! Not that these things are bad. But they should not be the objects of worship!!!

    Americans have become God-the Judge over many things. If I don’t practise Western democracy, thenn I am condemned! I must be evil! I have “no respect for human rights” (when my concerns over food and jobs are placed at higher priority).
