    God is the Lord for both Pravrutti (Obeying justice) and Nivrutti (Loving Service to Lord). If the Lord is not pleased in Pravrutti you cannot please Him in Nivrutti also. The fundamental requirement to please the Lord in Pravrutti is to have satisfaction at every step. The contentment with whatever you have will always please the Lord. You must be happy with whatever is already given to you by the Lord and you must always thank for the past. You should not put your eye on the present or the future and put an application to the Lord. Even if you have travelled from one place to other place you must thank the Lord for having protected you during the journey. You have reached the destiny only by the grace of the Lord. It is not sure that one will reach the destiny by a bus or train or aeroplane.

    If any accident takes place you are gone forever. Everybody is under the influence of strong ignorance and thinks that he has reached the destiny by his effort. Some people think that reaching the destiny does not need any effort and it is just a routine thing. Therefore, either you feel egoistic for your effort or you neglect the journey as a routine matter, which does not require any effort. Both these are illusions. You have reached the destiny by the grace of the Lord only. Therefore, in every stage you must remember the Lord and express gratefulness to Him. By such behaviour the Lord becomes immensely pleased and is encouraged to do every thing for you. Jesus always used to thank the Lord in every small work also. He always thanked the Lord for the past and never was worried about the present or the future. He thanked the Lord for the four breads already given. He never was worried about the thousands of visitors who came to see Him and they were feeling hungry. He never planned about the future consequence of such situation.

    The Lord was extensively pleased and multiplied the four breads into thousands of breads. Therefore, contentment with what already you have and thanking the Lord for whatever was already given will please the Lord. You must thank the Lord even for every respiration because it is only by the will and grace of the Lord the lungs are working and the air is going in and coming out of the lungs. The heart beats and every beat is only by the graceful sanction of the Lord. I find several people who crave for money every time irrespective of what ever they had. They never attain the satisfaction at any stage of the growth of their financial strength. God becomes displeased with such people and will not grant further wealth because the fellow will never get satisfaction. There is no use of granting any amount of wealth because the fellow is never satisfied. When the satisfaction is absent he will not thank the Lord with full heart. Even if he thanks, it is only for the future sanction.

    Therefore, if you really wish to have the grace of the Lord to remove your present financial crisis and poverty, the first step you have to take is to have satisfaction and complete contentment with whatever you already have. You plan with the existing funds and adjust yourself accordingly. If you have the will to adjust you can adjust to any quantity of wealth. When the adjustment is done, you will have the full satisfaction.

    Then if you pray the Lord you will not ask for any thing more because you are already satisfied. In such case your prayer is not for the fulfilment of any desire. Your prayer requires the Lord Himself and not any thing other than the Lord. Your prayer will be in His praise only and not for any desire because you had the full contentment already. Then the Lord gets real pleasure from you and will force His grace on you continuously. He will rain wealth on you forever. The wealth will be multi-dimensional. Wealth does not mean simply cash. Wealth means health, good children, good appetite for food and good digestion, good sleep, perfect peace, and success in every effort, continuous courage, knowledge and finally the salvation.

    What kind of garbage is this?!?

    You clearly lied in order to become a member here, as you are neither a baptist or Christian. I pray you visit this forum as a guest (since you will be banned) and gleen truth instead of sowing heresy.

    A child

    antonyanil we are to come to Christ as a child, listen and learn from Him, not try to be mature when you are just an infant trying to fit what you already believe into it.

    I pray for you that you come to Jesus as a child.

    Luke 10:21
    At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.

    This is Hinduism.

    "The Vedic dharma (religion) is verily twofold, characterised by Pravritti (social action) and Nivritti (inward contemplation), designed to promote order in the world; this twofold dharma has in view the true social welfare and spiritual emancipation of all beings." -Adi Shankaracharaya (A.D. 788-820).

    Gentlemen, why do you assume these things about our new member? He may be strictly honest by the standards of a Baptist from India.

    Do you know his language? His culture? Baptists in India? How do you know that his terminology is strictly Hindu? In Japanese, the word 神 (kami, "God" or "god") is used in both Shinto and Christianity. You only know which is meant by the context. So how do you know he is using Hindu terminology? (I'm not saying I agree with what he is saying.)

    You may be right that he's a fraud. I just haven't seen the evidence yet.

    The issue is, John, that he's coming here to try to teach stuff yet doesn't use one word of Scripture. How can one teach ANYTHING of God without the benefit of the Scriptures?

    Early on I tried to work with his posts, but something was not right.He did say Jesus was his saviour, but i saw he posted in the atheist forum,catholic sites etc.
    Looks as if he is trying to reconcile some of his religious beliefs with what the bible would declare,without actually using the scripture properly.


    yes it does ....when you resist truth you can only wind up with error...
    look at open theism,and arminianism.....they leave scripture for philosophy and theories....then attack those who are trying to learn more about the truth.

    Yes that befuttles me, why would you want to attack those trying to learn?

    Just within the last week, Ive been confronted with people telling me I'm unsaved/unregenerate, that my theology is Machiavellian, that Im out & out wrong in my theology preference, that the people teaching me are wrong minded & distorting the faith, etc. Hasn't Christ told us to be Salt & Light?

    Just followed that last link and saw his siggy - with his website on it. He's a Universalist and he joined under COMPLETELY false pretenses. If he goes to a Baptist church, then I'm a man.

    http://www.universal-spirituality.org/

    ETA: I see he's been banned. Good. There's no room here for liars. That is not a good testimony for his "truth", is it?

    I guess I'm kind of protective about Asians. Maybe not you, but the typical American has never been in Asia and knows nothing about Asian thinking, religion, and Asian Christianity. He thinks karate is Buddhist (it's not), Zen Buddhism is peaceful (it's not), Chinese Christians are just like Americans (they're not), etc.

    Once on furlough, I once had an American tell me, "Japanese are very moral, aren't they?" After I closed my gaping jaw, I tried to set her straight, but people will believe what they want.

    Apparently, recently a thread was started that demanded no use of scripture to discuss a theological point.
