Sri Lankan Church Lives on Despite Destroyed Building, Death Threats From Buddhist Monk

(World Watch Monitor) The leader of a Sri Lankan church destroyed by a mob earlier this month has vowed that the church will continue to meet.

Kamal Wasantha, leader of the Kithu Sevana prayer centre, told Asia News, “No attack can stop us. We shall continue to meet and pray under a tree.”

Despite the attack leaving the Christian community of 15 families and 20 other worshippers nowhere to meet, they have no desire for revenge. “[We] shall not attack them in retaliation. Judgment belongs to God,” Wasantha said.

    Yes, the Buddhists persecute the Christians. Pagans do not have the concept of religious freedom unless educated by the Christians. Secular Westerners are only falsely dreaming about humanity. Nudist Westerners must not claim to be Buddhists; it insults real Buddhists. Buddhists are not nudists; just self-worshiping hedonists are. Tibet needs freedom from both the Chinese atheists and Tibetan Buddhism. Neither atheism/secularism or paganism offers man the freedom of conscience. Everyone needs the freedom that Jesus gives. ( John chapter 8-10)

    Jesus Christ is the embodiment of everything the Buddhists quest after and dream about!! Buddhists do not have to seek something non-existent anymore and humans don’t need to concentrate improving self anymore because Jesus God’s Son came and showed us who God is. He is the Way and the Truth and the Life. ( John chapter 14)
