Using a Lie for the Truth?
By Scott Noble
This paper brings out a few reasons why Christians should not use the
Buddha's "prophecy" about Metteyya. People who use this "prophecy" say that
Metteyya is Jesus Christ, based on a text found in Northern Thailand and
some texts found elsewhere. I hope to show that in spite of an "academic"
stamp of approval for this method by John R. Davis, this method should
definitely be tossed out of the faithful Christian's arsenal of evangelistic

Recently, another piece has been floating around, supposedly a monk who had a Near Death Experience and saw the Buddha burning in hell.
I guess the commandment "Thou Shalt Not Lie" isn't of much value anymore.
