Expert in what? I am a Ph.D in philosophy of religion. Might that do?

But wait a minute. You don't really want an expert. You want someone who agrees with you, right?

And many Christans have obviously been converted to Buddhism.

Since this is a Catholic forum, and I am a Catholic Charismatic priest, I feel compelled to reply.

The best approach, in my opinion, is to be tolerant of other people's beliefs and not try to convert people who are already comfortable and settled into a faith. The unchurched, of course, are fair game.

There is much I admire about Buddism and would feel presumptuous trying to convert or revert one to Christianity.

Father Daniel,
Jesus said to go out and make disciples of ALL the world. Not SOME of it by our picking and choosing. So, I think I'll take Jesus' Word over yours if you don't mind.

Father Daniel, LL wants an expert who agrees with her/him, not a church official, nor an academic. Let's don't waste words, either of us.

Thanks for a voice of reason.

As long as I agree with Christ is all that matters.

Don't be silly.
Every single word?
unconditionally?

So if God said in the Old Testament that his followers should be vengeful and destroy unbelievers, But Jesus says turn the other cheek....

Which one you gonna go for, hmm? HMMM?
