"Beautifully taught is the Lord's Dhamma, immediately apparent, timeless, of the nature of a personal invitation, progressive, to be attained by the wise, each for himself." Anguttara Nikaya V.332

Thag 1.20. Ajita - I do not fear death; nor do I long for life. I’ll lay down this body, aware and mindful.

But to say that Brahma is a supreme God who can wisely and compassionately judge people is something that I do not care about. I don't think the Buddha cared about it either. Its just something the Buddha had to deal with while coming across Brahmins during his teaching period
