 Friend Saket, I was a former christian, I agree with your comments. My father is a Protestant pastor. I still live among Christians. There is a lot of inconsistency in the Bible. Many concepts have been banned. The early Christians believed in the cycle of rebirth.

Jesus spoke of defilement indirectly. The most notable example is when he says: “It is not what goes into the mouth that makes a man unclean; but what comes out of the mouth makes a man unclean. “»

His people believed that defilement came from outside. He said that no, they come from the heart of man. As a Buddhist, we know that the heart is the gandhabba (energy body).

 

It is likely that he is a bodhisatta. However, it is still very far from the Dhamma of Lord Buddha. Sasatta ditthi (the belief in an eternal soul) is extremely present in his teachings.
