The Bible Says Jesus Will Return To Kill Everyone


Recommended Posts

Since you seem knowledgeable about this, can you explain to me what jatha culture is, and why it is seen negative to some people? My parents believe in anything those people say.. Sometimes I tell them some stuff I learned online, and they tell me it's fake; but when people part of a jatha say the same thing at times, they believe them instantly.

Modern day jatha culture is a shadow of what is use to be in the past. The chief difference being there was always the unspoken understanding that the Panth comes before anything else; no Jatha or its spiritual leader, etc, was better or above any other jatha. It was just a different flavour of Sikhi, but like I said, the understanding was the Guru and the Panth was supreme, and that we are ALL brothers and sisters.

Nowadays... where to begin, lol. Power, ego, status, wealth accumulation, inter-jatha politics, jatha vs jatha ideological struggles, the fighting of verbal wars via proxy between jatha followers... it's an unseemly mess. The biggest fault I've noticed is the bare hate. Just the hate and divisions is so strong, almost like we're different religions or something. That's even before we discuss what happens behind closed doors. As AkaliFauj alluded to there's weaving of myths and legends about the respective jathas leaders (usually to entice and recruit mystically curious youngsters), bowing to his now empty chair / gaddi / shoes... too much to describe.

The unity, intelligence, and common sense has deserted those who have positions of authority in Sikhi. As for parents, just keep your head down and bide your time. No point in banging your head against a brick wall. We all know Sikh parents don't like being educated by their offspring, lol, so don't bother. If they're meant to see the light they will; if not that's their luck, or lack thereof.

You can't back this belief up and yet you degrade Shabad and Naam Simran to your lowly status of calling Jesus Christ a Gurmukh. These long winded post of yours provide nothing to the sangat other th

Hallelujah!!! Amen brother!

Surely this argument ends, where guru gobind singh, himself says in the dasam granth, that ALL prophets before him, were all egotistical. Page 139..."all earlier prophets ended themselves in ego. And

I'm surprised that some people believe in the Bible it's just a book of a 2000 year old man.

I'm a Christian and Christ is my role model, he's my guru.

As for the bible, I'm not an expert but I know there is some really good advice in it.

Just because it's not sacred to you (or me) doesn't mean it isn't sacred to many others.

There'll come a time when Sikhi will also be 2000 years old, and how would you feel if someone from a new religion in the future said, "I'm surprised that some people believe in the Sikh scriptures from 2000 years ago." Learn to draw the line at loving your own faith and affording others the courtesy to love and follow theirs regardless of whether we agree with their doctrines or not, kinda like how our 9th Guru did.

VAHEGURU JI KA KHALSA, VAHEGURU JI KI FATEH

The below is my own prespective from reading the Bible - the below will apply to the New Testament.

If you actually read the bible, you will see that the New Testament (the primary section dealing with Christianity) has parts. The gospels from Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are the story of Jesus of Nazareth. In this contains what can truly be called the life and teachings of Jesus. There is very good content here. What is said by Jesus himself shows as a reformer and a person who wanted to dissipate the fakeness that was prevalent in the preaching going on.

The other sections, from Paul (formerly Saul) the Apostle, Revelations and such are not quite the same type of content as the gospels. Contrasted to Jesus's message of reformation, simplicity and devotion, the chapters have a variety of themes. Paul the Apostle has a bunch of the compositions within the New Testament. Frankly, I took a lot of issue with Paul's writings, as they seemed to be at odds with the simple and religious theme of Jesus. One verse detailed how men should not keep long hair (seems to be the opposite of what was ordained to the region's people per the Old Testament) and women should only learn that which comes from their men's mouth (was not a fan of women learning). Revelations, seemingly attributed to a person named John, was about the doom and gloom that was to come. Again, this was not really in line with the simple message of Jesus as enshrined in the 4 gospels. One experiences a very dramatic change in tone and content when transitioning from the gospels to the other content.

Similarly, in the Old Testament (read most of it), there are glimpses of the true Divine - Psalms and (to a lesser extent) the Proverbs, that are truly prayers or compositions to the Almighty. Other parts are more historical and commentary in nature.

The Bible (specifically the New Testament) should be understood for what it is: it is a compilation of texts that were written many years after the passing of Jesus. Some disagree to the compilation itself and there are other versions and additional compositions that some consider should be part of the Bible. What pertains directly to Jesus, his life and message, is inspiring and uplifting. All other stuff - seems...not as inspiring and uplifting. Be it historical in nature, commentary of someone who supposedly is a devotee of Jesus (referring to Paul the Apostle) or having visions of the future (Revelations), they are not as in line with the Gospels' message. The Bible was not directly recited and recorded fro Jesus's mouth. You cannot read and analyze its contents like Gurbani, which was directly revealed and scribed AND THEN PROOFREAD AND EDITED directly by Guru Sahib.

Conclusion: Stop beating up on Jesus.

It's called Christianity for a reason.

The clue is in the name.

And Islam should be called Mohammedism.

Perhaps Sikhism should be called Guru Nanakism, but I don't know enough about the subject to form a proper comment.

Ok, I apologize if what I said was offensive: the reason I did say what I said was because as Sikhs we believe in only Guru Sahib, (I was trying to tell Sikhs not to believe in it, the same way Christians would say all the other texts are wrong-some) not trying to offend Jesus.

The conclusion I got was that the Bible was not divinely inspired and the writers were not disciples of Christ. If that's true than The Sermon On The Mount isn't true either. Regardless Jesus was probably sent by Waheguru.

The people opposing you gave so many reasons, but you only have one, and you even refuse to consider logic much less views and opinions.

The secondary reasons stem from one main point that I have shown to not be an authority on the topic of Jesus Christ being a Gurmukh, etc. Highest authority and only authority is Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib ji's Bani. End of story. If you feel there is another higher authority. Then say so and don't hid behind others.

And u accuse other people of being jatha mentality! Its funny cuz when u were against having kirpaan with u at all times, u said it was because logically it doesn't make sense there are locks on bathroom doors. Where is ur logic now?

I will not be subjected to this back handed cunning tactics. Be a man and post in the correct thread and we can discuss. To give a little flavor. Rehat does not equal Gurbani. Rehat has changed over the course of the Gurus and Gurbani has stayed the same. So there is the simple logic you Baba and jatha culture people cannot accept.

Your whole defense hangs on an ENGLISH TRANSLATION of dasam granth bani di tuk.this bani has symbolism, the greatest rhetorical devices, and diverse purposes/functions. Thats why ppl who read only English translation believe that bachittar natak isnt bani. So anyway, I think that translation should have been avatar not prophets. Prophets is paiganbar in gurbani and avtaars are avatars. Avatars r of course the Hindu incarnations that came before guru Ji.

What gave you the impression I rely on english translations? Or is this one of your cunning ways to take away the validity of my post based on Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib ji's Bani? I really believe it is the latter. In the past I have translated the Guru's Bani myself from Gurmukhi to english on this very site. So your argument falls on deaf hears. Nice try though. Jesus Christ and every other so called messenger sent by God and actually sent by God is included in the Bani of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib ji. Plain and simple all lost to ego. Bhagat Bani was included in Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji and those who passed the test are included in Gurbani. If there was one honest messenger/avtaar/prophet, etc out of them. Their writing would have been included in Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji like Bhai Mardana Bani is. Dhan Dhan Dhan Bhai Mardana ji who did the seva of Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji Maharaj. The Sikhs of today can learn something from him today. Leave Gurbani as is and don't add your manmat too it.

We know Jesus was a sant at least because he preached the same things as the bhagats. We can see this from some of the bible. You know love god, gods name, kindness etc

And Jesus Christ was against rituals and religious hypocrisy and friend of the poor just like many bhagats.

Equating Bhagats to Jeus Christ is an insult to Gurbani. Who are you to play the Gurus role and give such a high title, especially after Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib ji gave Jesus Christ the title of being lost in ego? Bhagats lived the word of Gurbani and achieved the title of Bhagat through Gurbani. Who gave the title of sant to Jesus Christ? Mislead individuals, who don't know anything about how the title of Sant and Bhagat is given and people who don't follow their own Gurus Bani; Sri Dasam Granth Sahib ji. No one follows Gurbani these days. They have thrown Gurbani out of the window and started to preach their words. The world is mad.

I personally agree with 100% of what you just said.

    • I miss my best pal. I was desolate when he passed away for quite a while (a few years!). Time (I found) does heal and attenuate the intensity of pain.  The busier you keep yourself, and thus from thinking about it, the better. You can't be stuck in constant grieving mode. The grief is heavily psychological, and you have to use a variety of tricks to focus elsewhere. Training helps. Keeping busy (as mentioned previously) helps. Hobbies help. Supportive friends who don't indulge you in excessive emotionality help. If you're going to mope about it for years, then you're not doing yourself any favours. You have to want to get over it, and not indulge in excessive emotionality after a while.  Even then, something will happen that brings them back to mind. But you have to keep moving. When the sun's out I always remember him, and what we'd get up to. I go past a place we used to go to (like a restaurant) and up he pops in my mind. But he's gone somewhere else now, and I'm here, and I have to deal with my own issues now. You have to be tough minded.  Try CBD btw.  
    • that sau sakhi tale is based on Guru Gobind Sigh's bachan after Singh was carried off battlefield unconcious and  injured by Musley and they cut his kesh and tried to convert him: bytrying to feed him  Halal Meat (please note those who think nothing of eating meat in 'halal friendly' eateries ) , doing sunat (circumcision) , reading shahada and even marrying/offering a muslim woman to him. Because he did not take the last option up Guru ji said he was NOT a muslim and could do pesh and rejoin his sikh bretheren.
    • https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2021/oct/18/pm-urged-to-enact-davids-law-against-social-media-abuse-after-amesss-death   Potentially an attack on our online freedoms. IF, this includes forums such as these, I will be very reluctant to post again   PM urged to enact ‘David’s law’ against social media abuse after Amess’s death Calls for crackdown on threats to public figures and an end to online anonymity   A notice keeps David Amess’s seat in the Commons free. Photograph: Jessica Taylor/AP   Jessica Elgot Chief political correspondent @jessicaelgot Mon 18 Oct 2021 19.59 BST             Boris Johnson is facing calls to enact “David’s law” to crack down on social media abuse of public figures and end online anonymity in the wake of the killing of Sir David Amess. Dozens of MPs paid tribute in the House of Commons on Monday to the veteran Conservative backbencher who was stabbed to death on Friday, shedding tears, sharing uproarious anecdotes and venting anger over his death.   While police are investigating whether there are any links to Islamist extremism and have not connected the killing to the targeting of MPs online, allies of Amess said he had voiced growing concern about threats and toxicity within public discourse as they demanded a crackdown. Campaigners have warned, however, that ending online anonymity could put whistleblowers and pro-democracy campaigners in authoritarian regimes at risk. Keir Starmer, the Labour leader, told the Commons that “civility in politics matters” but “we must not lose sight of the fact that David’s killing was an [alleged] act of terror on the streets of our country”. Mark Francois, who described Amess as one of his closest friends and his political mentor, vowed he would dedicate his time in parliament to overhauling the rules governing social media. Francois told the Commons he was “minded to drag Mark Zuckerberg [CEO of Facebook] and Jack Dorsey [CEO of Twitter] to the bar of the house … if necessary kicking and screaming so they can look us all in the eye and account for their actions or rather their inactions that make them even richer than they already are”. He said MPs should radically toughen up the pending online harms bill to prevent trolls and other abusers hiding behind pseudonyms. “In the last few years David had become increasingly concerned about what he called the toxic environment in which MPs, particularly female MPs, were having to operate in,” Francois said. “He was appalled by what he called the vile misogynistic abuse which female MPs had to endure online and he told me very recently that he wanted something done about it.”   A man understood to be Ali Harbi Ali is filmed on CCTV walking down a north London street last Friday. Photograph: Sky News Francois, the MP for Rayleigh and Wickford, which neighbours Amess’s Southend West constituency, added: “I suggest that if we want to ensure that our colleague didn’t die in vain, we collectively all of us pick up the baton, regardless of our party and take the forthcoming online harms bill and toughen it up markedly. “Let’s put, if I may be so presumptuous, David’s law on to the statute book, the essence of which would be that while people in public life must remain open to legitimate criticism, they can no longer be vilified or their families subject to the most horrendous abuse, especially from people who hide behind a cloak of anonymity with the connivance of the social media companies for profit.” Bernard Jenkin said MPs should also examine themselves when discussing civility in politics, a nod to some of the disturbing language used during Brexit debates. “Which of us has never felt fallen prey to feelings of contempt or lack of respect or unkindness towards those who oppose us? Which of us can honestly say we cannot do better?” He said kindness should be added to the seven principles of public life. “Henceforth, let kindness be known as the David Amess principle of public life.” Amess, an MP for 38 of his 69 years, was stabbed to death while holding his constituency surgery in an Essex church. Ali Harbi Ali, 25, was arrested at the scene and continues to be detained under terrorism laws. The government intends to pass an online safety bill introducing new obligations on social media companies to regulate illegal and harmful material – though there has been significant controversy over how that can be defined. Compliance will be monitored by Ofcom and the bill is expected to start its passage after pre-legislative scrutiny set to report back in early December. Paying tribute to “one of the nicest, kindest and most gentle individuals ever to grace these benches”, Johnson said Amess’s killing struck at the heart of the ordinary democratic work of MPs. “That Sir David spent almost 40 years in this house but not one day in ministerial office tells everything about where his priorities lay,” he said. “He was not a man in awe of this chamber, nor a man who sought patronage or advancement. He simply wanted to serve the people of Essex, first in Basildon, then in Southend. And it was in the act of serving his constituents that he was so cruelly killed.” Starmer said: “Even as a political opponent he was a man and a politician we could all learn much from. I use that phrase – ‘political opponent’ – very deliberately. Because David held his beliefs passionately but gently. I believe that not only can we learn from that but that we have a duty to do so. Civility in politics matters.” Starmer spoke to the parents of Jo Cox, the Labour MP murdered by a far-right terrorist in 2016, on Friday, he said. “I knew they would be reliving that terrible day. They said to me they were thinking of David’s family and how their lives would be changed forever,” he said. Cox’s widower, Brendan Cox, also said it was a moment to reflect on political discourse and a “day-to-day brutality with which our political debate is conducted, from increasingly regular death threats to online abuse”. The police team convened after his wife’s murder to investigate threats against MPs found 582 reports of malicious communications and handled 46 cases of harassment between 2016 and 2020, he said. Nine cases were classified as terrorism-related.
    • I have lost people in my life close to me. The feeling you have is emptiness.  The person filled a gap in your life which is missing.  In the modern world, we think of death of being separate from life, but it is in fact part of life. As you get older and you attend more funerals this is something you begin to accept. What death has taught me is that it is "finite" in this particular life that I am currently in now and I should be living it and live it better. If I live this life better and more fulfilled then I will either merge with the Akaal or live the next life at a better level.  Whatever Maharaj in his hukam has accepted for me is good. If I can leave this world accomplishing what I set out to prior to entering this life then I can leave this life with some level of Santhoki.  Your wife came into this world and set out to achieve whatever Maharaj in his hukam chose for her. She has achieved what she was set out to do and has moved to the next level. Cherish the moments you had with your wife.
