革命者–佛與耶穌 Buddha and Christ as revolutionaries

革命者–佛與耶穌

佛說眾生皆有佛性, 皆可成佛.
這是對當時印度教教義的革命, 因在印度教的种姓階級中, 只有最高級的婆羅門种姓才可修練成神.

耶穌也對舊約的教義起了革命.
他以寬 恕與博愛, 革了 舊約上帝的命, 說:
敵人 若打你的左臉, 把右 臉也讓他打. 舊約 則要人以牙還牙, 以眼 還眼.
又說 自認沒有罪的可投出第一塊石, 舊約 則要人用石頭打死犯罪者.
又說 愛你的敵人, 舊約 則要人把敵人及其全家人都剎死.( 申命記13.7-11)

耶穌 比釋迦牟尼遲幾百年才出生, 他”博愛”這思 想可能就是佛學中”眾生 平等”這概 念的一種演變—––聖經 對耶穌由12至30歲期 間18年的 歷史–字不 提, 現有 不少學者考証他是到了印度學佛,受了慈悲教義的影響, 因而以寬 恕與博愛為其思想中旨.

人人平等

佛說; 眾生平等, 皆可成彿, 無如來相, 無眾生相, 不生不滅, 不污不淨, 不生分別心,一即一切.

新約加拉太書3.28;  不 分 猶 太 人或希臘 人 、 自由人或奴隸 、  男 或 女 . 因 為 你 們 在 基 督 耶 穌 裡 都是同一  。

我認為這是另一耶穌受佛影响的証明.

 

我以 前提過,聖經 的舊約要人以牙還牙,新約 要求愛你的敵人,自相 茅盾.

佛教 自始至終都追求慈善和平.

我不 反對任何宗教, 政治,哲理, 除非 它鼓吹自已的一套是唯一真神, 真理, 排斥 異見, 並用 暴力推行自已自以為是的理念, 給世 界帶來災禍, 戰爭.

Buddha and Christ as revolutionaries

Buddha points out all sentient beings have Buddha nature, and can become a Buddha, this is a revolt to the Hindu’s caste system that only the highest Brahman caste can be close to the gods.

Jesus also revolutionizes the teaching of the Old Testament, Saying:

If your enemy strike your left cheek, also let him strike your right cheek.
This is in direct contrast to the Old Testament’s an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.

And he said;
Let the one who has no sin casts the first stone,
contrary to The Old Testament’s stoning of all sinners.

He also preaches love your enemies, while The Old Testament encourages you to kill your enemy and his whole family (Deuteronomy13.7-11)

Jesus was born 500 years after Buddha, some scholars pointed out there was no mention of him in the Bible from his 12 to 30 years old, and suspected he might had travelled to India and formatted his teaching of universal love and forgiveness under the influence of  the Buddhist’s teaching of compassion for all beings.
