Falun Dafa is perfect for Christians and hereís why:
The Falun, which they call a "law wheel", or "a miniature galaxy of
spiraling energy from God", corresponds directly to the western idea of a
living holy spirit presence within you.
The Falun is given by a qualified spiritual teacher to a qualified
student just as Christ gave "the spirit" it his disciples on Pentecost.
The Falun provides power for disciples just like the Holy Spirit does
The Falun provides healing for practitioners just like the Western
concept of the Holy Spirit does
The Falun provides supernormal abilities just like the Holy Spirit
provides "Gifts of the Spirit" to Christians.
The Falun especially provides something known as Buddha fruit, which is
identical to the Fruits of the Spirit that Christians treasure: namely love
joy, peace, patience, etc..
There is nothing that the Falun does not provide that the Holy Spirit
does, and there is nothing that the Falun does provide that the Holy Spirit
does not. They are identical except for some minor cultural difference and
,of course, their very different names.
Assuming the Bible verse is correct that states: "By their fruits ye shall
know them" It looks like Christians have some unlikely friends from Asia! This
is very unexpected! How could Taoism -a naturalist religion, and Buddhism - an
enlightenment philosophy, possibly combine in the 21st century to produce a
moving meditation so naturally aligned with 1st century Christianity? How, in
Godís name could this be possible?
Well, if the Bible is correct in asserting that:
The Holy Spirit will lead us into all truth.
The Holy spirit is available to all Godís people,
The Tao is just another name for the Holy Spirit.
Asians are Godís people just like Jews and Europeans, Blacks, and other
Asian mystics have studied nature, spirituality, mysticism, surrendered
and prayed to God for truth, etc.
Then it does seem possible that they could produce a valid enlightenment
system based on the Holy Spirit that is actually helping millions to get
closer to God and live a holy life, leading to real enlightenment.
I have read both Falun Dafa books now and practiced with the VCD. I am quite
frankly amazed at the depth and profundity of the teaching . Based on my 20+
years of private Christian Education, and my minister fatherís insights , I
think Falun Dafa is not only thoroughly Christian, I also think Christians
should practice it as a way to get more of the Holy Spirit and to gain more
enlightenment. We have too much theology and ritual in Christendom and not
enough enlightenment and supernatural power . Falun Dafa could be just what we
need to lift us a little higher.
