    I heard the story of Buddhist monks having to walk through three gates before being allowed to speak. At the first gate, they were asked, "Is it true?" If so, they were allowed to move to the next gate, where they were asked, "Is it kind?". Again if so, they moved on. At the third gate, they were asked, "Is it necessary?"

    Seems to me that would cut down on a lot of the chatter we see here. :D

    Amen!!! The questions ask get very little response (answered) about the 3rd post we get into personal attacks on each other.

    Good thing I'm not Buddhist. I'd be the monk climbing over the gates so I wouldn't have to answer the questions, then I could say what I wanted by the time I climbed over the third one. :laugh:

    I wonder if "body language" counted?

    If they responded orally at any of the gates they wouldn't be allowed through. :(

    Who wants to hear from the original skin heads, anyway?

    left out their 4th gate, where they found out that jesus saves, Not their Lord Buddah!

    Question at that point was " who do YOU say that Jesus was?"

    How about who do you say Jesus IS, not who He was.

    he was/is the Same, he is God the Son incarnated as a man, who died as a substitute on behalf of sinnners, in order to pay in full the debt owed to God the Father!
