The danger of buddha statues

It is a trend, that is spreading all over the earth; buddha statues. Under the cloak of peace, calm energy, positive energy, happiness, hope, harmony, many people take these buddha statues into their homes. These buddha statues supposed to bring peace, harmony, health, wealth, happiness, positivity, prosperity, etc.

People say, that only by looking at buddha statues, it should already give you some kind of peace. Maybe someone has given you a buddha statue, and you have given it a nice place in your home. But do you know, what you have brought into your home? Are you aware what these buddha statues will cause in your life?

‘Many people don’t know what they bring into their home’

Many people don’t know what they bring into their home, or in their garden. They received a buddha statue from someone, or bought it in a store, or have bought a buddha statue or several buddha statues during their travel in Asia (although according to the rule, you may never purchase a buddha for yourself), and have given it a nice place in their home, or garden. They think these buddha statues looks exotic, and really fits into the Asian trend for homes.

That an unbeliever (the world) brings buddha statues into his/her home is bad, but that some Christians also follow this trend, and bring buddha statues into their home is unbelievable to me.

How can a Christian, that believes in Jesus Christ, and follows Him, bring a statue of a dead man, who founded and represents buddhism, into his/her home? How is this possible?

The name Christian

It is possible, because most Christians, are nothing more than ‘name Christians’. They are not born-again Christiansborn of the Spirit of God. But they are carnal, and therefore they cannot comprehend the Spiritual world, nor the things of the Spirit. They walk after the flesh and are ruled by their senses, emotions, feelings, thoughts etc.

Why a person must be born againborn-again Christian would never do something, or bring something into his/her house, that would offend the Lord.

(S)he would never bring a statue(s), or an image(s), of a dead person into his/her home, that represent a dead religion; a human philosophy, that denies Jesus Christ.

Because buddhism says: “There is no God.”

But these so called Christians, do these things, because they don’t know the Word; Jesus Christ.

Through ignorance, and a lack of knowledge of Gods word, they bring a lot of sorrow upon themselves. Because these statues, that look so innocent and calm, can cause you a lot of sorrow, problems, and harm.

What does the Word say about idols?

Turn ye not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I am the Lord your God! (Lev 19:4)

The Lord has given commandments and instructions in His Word, because of His great love towards man. He wants to have a relationship with man and doesn’t want anything bad to happen to them. He wants them to keep them from harm.

Therefore, when the Lord gives us an instruction, that we must turn away from idols, and to not get involved, then why won’t we listen, and obey His instruction?

Buddha is an idol, he has been exalted by people, and has been elevated to a god, he is the founder of buddhism. People worship his earthly wisdom, and apply it into their lives.

Who was Buddha?

Gautama Buddha (Siddhartha Gautama was his real name) was the founder of buddhism. Siddhartha Gautama was born between 490 en 410 B.C. and was the son of a king. He grew up in Nepal, and was a hindu. He observed the many contradictions, and problems in life. After many years, he left the palace, his wife, and child, because he didn’t want to live, as a fortune man anymore. He went away, looking for the truth of life.

After seven years, of wandering, meditating, inquiring, and searching, he found (according to him) the true path, and great enlightenment under the legendary Bo tree; the tree of wisdom. He attained nirvana.
The teachings of buddha, are concerned with the ramifications of the four noble truths, and the eightfold path.

This philosophy, or religion has nothing in common with the Christian faith.

When you bring a buddha into your home, you not only take an idol (statue) into your house, but you also bring the spirit behind this idol; the devil, his demons and the death, into your house.

Because as I wrote before, there are only two kingdoms; the Kingdom of God, and the kingdom of the devil. If buddhism doesn’t belong to the Kingdom of God, it belongs to the kingdom of the devil.

Maybe you are laughing right know, or maybe you think “what a nonsense!” But this is no nonsense, this is reality. The spiritual world is no-nonsense, it is real! And it’s about time, that the believers of Jesus Christ wake up in the spirit, because many are blinded and are living in spiritual darkness.

The demonic spirit

I once heard a story of a person, who entered a temple. In that temple, there was a room with an enormous buddha statue. At certain times, the priest of that temple entered the room, kneeled down in front of the statue, and placed food, flowers, incense oil, etc. The person asked the priest, if he really believed, that the statue would eat his food. The priest answered: “of course not, but the spirit behind that statue will manifest“. Every time the priest put food before this statue, the demonic spirit came forth, and manifested himself in the room.

In Revelation 13:15, we read about the image of the beast, and that the beast has power to give life; a spirit, to the image of the beast, so that the image will be able to speak. That image is not able to speak, but the demonic spirit, that will be given to the image, will speak.

The danger of buddha statues

This also happens in your home; buddha statues have no power and life, but the demonic spirit behind these buddha statues, have power and will manifest themselves.

the devil as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devourThis demonic spirit can cause a lot of hurt in a family. Because this demonic spirit is a representative of the devil. And you know, that the devil only wants one thing, and that’s to destroy every person upon this earth.

This demonic spirit can cause (mental)illness, sickness, fights, divorces, rebellion against parents, violence, abuse, depression, suicidal thoughts, negative feelings, poverty etc. All these things happen, because of a lack of knowledge.

Because of ignorance, and a lack of knowledge, people open their doors, for evil to enter their homes, and their lives.

They think these buddha statues will bring calm energy, peace, harmony, luck, prosperity, wealth, etc.. But the truth is, that these buddha statues will only bring disaster and will cause a lot of harm in someone’s life.

I once heard about a person, who had a tumor, a form of cancer. During prayer I saw this buddha statue. I called the person, and asked if the person had a buddha statue. The person confirmed, that they had a buddha statue. I advised them to throw the buddha away. The person obeyed, and in a short time the pain and tumor disappeared.

The spiritual world

The spiritual world is real. It is the world behind this visible world. All visible things, and everything that’s created, have their origin in the spiritual world. God is Spirit, and He created everything out of the Spirit.

When we become born-again, our spirit becomes alive. Our lives will be changed, and we shall no longer live after the flesh. But we shall be seated in Jesus Christ; the Word, in this spiritual world, and shall walk after the Spirit.

Being born again from incorruptible seedIf a person is not born again, the spirit in the person is still death. The person can’t enter the spiritual realm out of the spirit, but only out of the soul.

When you enter the spiritual realm out of your soul, that’s a very dangerous thing to do. Because in no time, these demon spirits will enter your life, and will cause manifestations in your flesh (shaking, moving like a snake, falling etc).

But when we are seated in Jesus Christ, we can operate in the spiritual realm, and be protected. Because we enter out of the spirit the spiritual realm in His authority.

When we become born-again, we will no longer walk after the flesh; after our senses, thoughts, emotions, will, desires, lusts etc. anymore, but we will walk after the Spirit. Therefore, we shall able to discern the things that are of God, and the things that are of the devil.

We must not underestimate the power of the devil and demonic spirits, who will often try to imitate the Holy Spirit. But if you have the Spirit of Christ, you will be able to discern the spirits.

Buddha statues are a hype

Buddhism belongs to the four largest religions in the world. It is the religion of the East, and it becomes more and more popular in the West. Although many people consider Buddhism not a religion, because buddhists don’t believe in God, the Creator, and therefore they consider Buddhism a philosophy. But Buddhism has a lot of religious aspects, and therefore it is overall considered a religion.

The Lord God is the Creator of the HeavensThe devil uses everything to tempt and deceive people. Because His ultimate purpose is to destroy people.

He even uses celebrities; actors, actresses, models, singers, idols, you name it. Because he knows, that these people (idols) have many followers. And these followers want to copy them, and want to be like them, therefore they will copy their lifestyle.

When they see, that their idol is into buddhism, having buddha statues, practising yoga etc. they also want to do that.

They bring buddha statues into their homes, and do yoga, and without knowing, they have opened the door for demonic forces and invited them to come into their lives.

People, who are still carnal and walk after the flesh, are always interested in human philosophies, and other religions. Especially the eastern philosophy has become very popular. There are many  people, who are interested in the spiritual world, and the spiritual things, but they often look in the wrong places.

Faith of the senses and a lack of knowledge

The reason why so many unbelievers are getting involved in the spiritual world and the occult, is because  most Christians stay carnal and keep living after the flesh (ruled by their senses, feelings, thoughts, emotions etc.), and make the faith, a faith of the senses, instead of the Spirit.

Bible is our compass, gain wisdomMost churches are not walking after the Spirit in the spiritual authority of Jesus Christ. They are not seated in the Light but in darkness and live like the world.

There are many people, who are wandering and looking for the meaning of life. They are looking for the truth and spiritual things, and many find them in buddhism.

For those people buddhism seems trustworthy. They get clear answers at their questions, and they do understand the many wisdom quotes from buddha.

In contrary to the Christian faith, where most Christians don’t know, or don’t understand the Bible themselves. Therefore when someone approaches them, with certain questions about life, they cannot answer these questions. How can the unbeliever be won for Jesus Christ, if a believer is not able to provide answers to the questions of the unbeliever?

It’s a shame, because of the lack of knowledge of Gods Word, and because most Christians don’t walk after the Spirit, with signs and wonders following them, many people will be lost forever.

The only true destination of man

Many people are looking and searching for their true destination, that can only be found in Jesus Christ. There is only one way, and that way is Jesus.

He is the only One that can give eternal life. There is no other way to come to God, than through Jesus.
Only the blood of Jesus Christ can cleanse you, from all your sins and iniquities, and can bring you into a place of holiness and righteousness.

one way to eternal lifeOnly by the blood of Jesus you are reconciled with God; your Creator, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, and all hosts. And by the power of the blood, and the power of the Holy Spirit, you will become born again in the spirit. There is no other way to become born again.

Buddhists believe, they have to get born again many times. But they shall never find, what they are looking for.

There is only one rebirth, and that is through Jesus Christ. Through Him it is possible to become a new creation.

You can only become that new creation by believing in Jesus Christ, accept Him as your Saviour and Lord, to lay down your old life in the water baptism, and become born again in the spirit, by the power of the Holy Spirit. When you become a new creation, you become a son of God.

Jesus is the only Savior and Lord

Let us serve Jesus, and obey Him (obey His commandments), instead of an idol; a statue of a dead man, that denies Jesus Christ. When you bring buddha statues into your home, you bring buddha into your home and open the door, for destruction and the death to enter.

Jesus is risen from the death! He has conquered death, and lives for ever more!

If you have buddha statues in your house, and want to follow Jesus, then throw these buddha statues away. Destroy them, and ask forgiveness to God, and cleanse your house, by commanding these evil spirits to leave your house in the Name of Jesus.

This also applies to African statues and sculptures, African masks, Indonesian statues, Indonesian masks, Mexican statues, Peruvian statues, Roman statues, Greek statues etc. that also represent idols.

Dedicate your life and house to Jesus Christ, and you shall experience true peace. The peace of God, that no buddha statue can give you, not even if you have 10 buddha statues, or 100 buddha statues in your house.
Only Jesus can give you this peace, that passes all human understanding.

      I understand what you are saying, but the thing is that the natural (unregenerate) man, receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither is he able to come to know them, because they are investigated in a spiritual realm.
      A natural man lives in the natural realm (visible world), and is ruled by his/her senses. He/she cannot comprehend spiritual things, so they are foolishness to them. The natural man can only see the result, or effect, of spiritual things in the natural realm.

      What this writer speaks is true. Pray and ask Jesus. He will confirm it as truth. The spirit world is real. When you take your last breathe on day on this earth your spirit will leave your body and have to go somewhere. Your body dies but your spirit will live off forever. It’s true! Therefore being said that. God is the SPIRIT of God. The devil is the SPIRIT of evil (comes as a angel of light many times to deceive and eventually bring destruction on mankind who is easily deceived by him). Then there is man who has our SPIRIT living inside our body. On the last day you take your last breathe on this earth one day …. your SPIRIT will leave your body and it will either go and be one with Jesus which is heaven. Or it will go to be one with the devil which is hell. One or the other. You can’t serve 2 masters. That is truth! Reality! In truth, we can’t say we walk with God and at the same time are holding hands with the devil. It’s either your for God or not. Just sharing..

    Hi, very interesting to read. I’m just writing to share an experience and never write on forums! I have been travelling Australia and have been living in a house heavily influenced with Asian interior; Feng shui, Buddha statues, elephant statues and a large human Asian women looking figure in the garden. It is a large house with many living here, since renting here for a couple of months I have noticed how each person now left in the house has very bad family issues (all divorced, bad family arguments) along with everyone struggling with money issues. all issues Which don’t seem to be getting better for people. I’ve even begin to feel it slightly myself and things seem to be not working out very well at all since living here…which is when I wondered it had anything to do with the Buddha statues. I have faith and understand life isn’t always perfect but there is a huge sense of ‘trying your uttmost hardest’ with a wave of disappointment to knock you back down again ….something which I’ve never experienced before in this way, consistently effecting a household of different people! According to what I’ve read the buddha/spirit seems to bring the opposite of what it’s meant to bring! I’m wondering wether spiritual objects really do have spirits within them and like it says in the article, if it’s not from God then where is it from? If we believe the Holy Spirit we know there is evil…but where do these evil spirits roam? It’s not something I like to look into, or ever really think about but I guess You can only really see the truth in (bad spirits) when its experienced first hand and the ‘fruit’ of thing is revealed in people’s lives.

        I just threw out a Buddha statue – a week ago . It’s been in our patio for about year or so … I had marital problems , and my kids were increasingly problematic .

        Since throwing it out and praying and seeking Jesus again in my life I feel a sense of peace . My children are at peace .

    Maybe just maybe God isn’t a touchy little shit like you’re trying to paint him as and maybe just maybe bringing a statue into your house won’t make his love for you diminish in anyway. And also, maybe some of us are married to someone of a different faith and everyone has the right to freedom of religion. I would never tell my husband he couldn’t display something of his faith in our home just because I believe something else. The fact is that instead of being self righteous a “good Christian” would be more like Jesus himself and accept and love people and spread love rather than tell people what they can and can’t do in their own home. This whole article is just sick.

      Jesus; the Word says: Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

      Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God (2 Cor 6:14-7:1)

    Hi, I ever worked in an organization that had a buddha statue before. In the first week of work a fellow executive was mean. She said things such as “I don’t teach you because I don’t trust you”, and also said things like “you study until so high but (work wise…)”. As that work cannot be learnt from school, she still told me, you want to learn you go to school and learn (which no school taught). She was very unreasonable. Also, when I was taught a few things at the beginning, it was difficult to absorb. A girl 3 years older than me was hired shortly after me and asked me what was my pay. She received more training than me. I was hardly trained while working there. There was also one time I helped to collect cash payment together with someone else, then accused of lying/stealing. I was oppressed mentally, emotionally, physically, I went back on Saturday to have more opportunities to learn on the job but ended up giving a customer wrong info. So was scolded and blamed. The previous person left after 6 months of working there. The manager told me he was reluctant to hire me because he said when he saw my resume (I did 2 short jobs before this), he thought “this person surely has problem (this person = me) but HR persuaded me to hire you (I didn’t know why HR did that, since he was already apprehensive about me). At the interview he had this guarded, slightly interrogative posture. Once, the manager gave me a book of accounting documents but that executive (female took it away before I could go back to my table to check). Even when i stayed back in the sitting area outside the office for awhile on a friday, either someone saw it or there was a CCTV camera, my manager questioned me about it. I was doing my own things for a programme later that day. I was sent to the storeroom to tie up documents and labelling for several days. The manager even asked me “why so slow”. Ill-treated to the point of dropping a heavy stack of documents on my table, the sound of it giving nearby colleagues a fright. After that I was sent to another branch (at a mental hospital) to do some work. It was mental, emotional and psychological torture. When I arranged something wrongly, one of staff there (female), accused me of “messing up the documents”. When I said it is not mess up, she said “then what? Jumbled up?”. After I finished some work there, and was told by the manager to return to the main office, on the subway train to the main office, one colleague saw me and gave me a shocked and unfriendly look (unwelcoming look). Earlier before I went to the mental hospital branch, while walking home one day with 2 colleagues, I was chatting with a colleague (perhaps I sounded negative, complaining), she quickly walked away from me to chat with the other colleague. Although this lady said the executive scolded everyone of the staff before me, it was clear that she singled me out, bully me and ostracized me. The girl who joined shortly after me resigned before me, as she was bullied too. After this job, I never dared to work for an organization with an idol/statue. The mental, emotional and psychological torture was so bad that during a toastmasters session one day after work, I just cried while someone was giving a speech. The guy sitting on my left did not ask me why. I might have cried on other toastmasters sessions before though not as heavy as this session. This happened years ago, probably the worst work environment I ever started working in. My mum told me not to join this firm as it is a buddhist organization, and messaged her pastor asking for advice. Her pastor told her “if she were my daughter I will not let her join (this buddhist organization”. My mum told me her pastor’s comment. But I was so desperate for a job that I took it up. The torture affected my next job’s performance too, as I remembered all the negative words spoken against me while in that buddhist organization. Even now I would prefer not to go near that building again. God has been gracious to not let me fall into that desperate and tortured situation again. Once I went to work one day for a firm with a statute and was reminded by my mum about that buddhist organization, because she asked me if that firm had any idol and I said yes (perhaps she was divinely inspired by God to ask me). So I did not carry on working for that firm.
