a self-righteous religious man who didn’t ask God’s forgiveness

Posted by admin on 5 August 2018 in John, Luke, The Book of Gospel |

Verses in the Holy Bible particularly interesting to me would be interesting to Buddhists because I read the Holy Bible as an ex-Buddhist. So, if I share what interested me, it will help Buddhists. One of them is ‘The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector’.

The reason I didn’t understand the parable well initially was because I had the problem like the Pharisee and I knew many Buddhists would have the same problem. I think this Parable may help Buddhists. So, I want to share this Parable today so that Buddhists may hear about it and learn from it.
Verses from the Holy Bible quoted in this video:

Luke 18:9 – 14
9 To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everybody else, Jesus told this parable: 10 "Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee stood up and prayed about himself: 'God, I thank you that I am not like other men—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.'
13 "But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, 'God, have mercy on me, a sinner.'
14 "I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."

John 3:16 – 21
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. 19 This is the verdict: light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.”
