New words well suited to forum posters...

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Here is a question though sound silly but for curiosity. Moving to a country where in this part of the world where people been practicing buddism over a thousand year became part their way of life and tradition before Jesus or the Virgin mary is born. Are they going to be cursed to hell because they werent baptised?
I'll answer as a "Buddhist".

Personally here's how I see it. In the Bible as far as I can tell, followers of Christ and churchgoers are two separate entities. Remember in Jesus's review of 7 churches, each church had their goods and their bads so it's clear that one church isn't the only right way to God since Jesus is the judge, not the church. So just because someone is baptised or not doesn't mean they are going to hell, they'll be judged on their works at the day of judgement.

Don't know how you Mods find the patience to read some posters' defecations. Once a sociopath, always a sociopath. Anyway, got another name for the Ignore list.

Paul Verhoeven, the director of such greats as Robocop and Starship Troopers, etc, is a biblical scholar and wrote a great book, Jesus of Nazareth, an analysis of his nibs' story from the bible. It's a good read, less tedious than the bible. The religion here seems to only have a thin veneer of Buddhism, judging by the number of "ghosts" that seem to lurk in every nook and cranny. More Hindu/animist than Buddhist. Each to their own
