and Martial Arts
who regards martial arts like Kung Fu and boxing etc., contra Christ
should understand yet again that, if Christ regarded
this unacceptable, he would surely have told us. Nowhere in
the bible does Christ rejects martial arts. These surely did
exist, and wrestling was very popular those days.
Buddha did not worship anyone. But what do his followers believe:
Buddhism is a way of life. In short, Buddha was a young man who separated from his riches to live life as a monk.
Enlightenment rests in the “middle way,” not in luxurious indulgence or self-mortification.
Noble Truths: to live is to suffer; suffering is caused by
desire; one can eliminate suffering by eliminating all desires
(attachments); having a supposedly correct: view,
intention, speech, action, livelihood – being a monk.
meditation and concentration.
if done without the worship of any other God than The God of Israel, or
the invocation of spirits, is not Anti-Christ and perfectly in line
with Christianity. For if the above is an offense than all Christian
monks are an offense.
are many branches of Buddhism, and some teach occultism and the worship
of demons. So, make ye sure that you shun all those as a
Christian. God does not like the lukewarm and he does not like
you to worship demons. Beware of idolatry: I would not have a
statue of buddha in front of me when meditating, if I were you, for you
as a Christian can pull no strength of that, but only from Christ.
Kung fu, Feng shui etc.
As long as these
forms of martial arts do not violate against the Gospel they are sound.
Martial arts teaches you to condition body and soul in such a manner
and to such an extent that you may achieve the highest possible in this
art/sport/exercise. None of this is Anti-Christ.
may use any meditation, or spiritual exercise, which does not involve
worshiping other spirits, deities or intelligent
forces. Energy: sun, fire, en energies of stones etc.
are natural resources which God gave us to our use, with one law only:
do not worship them.
you feel attracted by any form of these martial arts, or such a way of
life, do examine it: does it involve the worship of demons, does its
teachings demand that you do not believe in the God of Israel? If
so, you should not go near their believe and worship, perhaps stay away
from their place if they worship things they regard as gods, but you
may certainly practice their wise ways of exercise, both spiritual and
physical (watch out with mantras, they may be invoking demons) you
better check on the mantra and change it if you feel like. I was given
one at 16 – the name was ‘Ima’ and I ought not
to tell anybody.
nobody fool you with the biblical lines below, for they tell of the
faith you should have in Christ – which you do have.
They do not forbid martial arts, for if they did they would forbid
sports also and the conditioning of the body, mental exercise, medicine
Arts are beauty and love when used as they should, especially Kung
Fu. I like Wing Chung (invented by Shaolin
nuns). Even if the branch recommends you be vegetarian; as
long as they don’t do so in the name of Christ, for he states:
all is sound to eat. But then you’d do it to obtain a
certain physical/mental condition to your advantage in the art you
the Jehovah Witnesses do not give or eat blood – this
is Anti-Christ, for they supposedly do it in the name of Christ, whom
specifically teaches us that all is sound to eat; and to love our
neighbour like our selves. No need to mention that this
Jehovah’s Witness Law is Anti-Christ to a ‘Christian’.
is no hate in martial arts competition or exercise; save when the
hearth of the artist is hateful – but then there are many
such hearts which have nothing to do with martial arts.
a Christian, you only consider if the art is: worshipping gods,
or if it involves the invocation of spirits, or if it requires
you to breach commandments, deny God or Christ, or the Holy
Ghost. If it does none of these you are free to enjoy your
sport or way of life, physical or mental.
Philippians 4:4–7 (NIV/KJV)
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let
your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.
not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and
petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
– And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Romans 5:1 (NIV)
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace
with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
John 18:36 (NIV)
Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my
servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jews. But now my
kingdom is from another place.”
Gates Of Hell Shall Not Prevail Against It
the ages Catholics
and other Nicolaitans tried to defy the above quotation by Jesus,
and murdering many, deceiving and misleading many more, but they have
and shall not prevail against 'His Church'.
