Buddhism worships gods of death and destruction? Where have their god(s) ever destroyed anything?
I think your god, Yahweh, holds the title of a god of death and destruction. Read Sodom and Gomorrah to see that what I say is true. Read the great
flood too, he's the biggest murderer and destroyer in all of history. How about the Crusades? Ever heard of them? Yeah, they were supposedly done in
the name of Yahweh.
Tell me, how many wars has Buddhism ever fought in the name of their god? And how many times has their god wiped out the Earth's population with a
Oh yeah, none, because Buddhism doesn't endorse a creator.
Gautama Buddha did not endorse belief in a creator deity, refused to express any views on creation and stated that questions on the
origin of the world are worthless. The non-adherence to the notion of an omnipotent creator deity or a prime mover is seen by many as a key
distinction between Buddhism and other religions.
Why do you try to discredit Buddhism when you obviously know NOTHING about it?

Everything is God. Everything shares the same essence or "stuff" of reality, which is spirit (Hinduism - the Brahma; Buddhism - Nirvana). The
belief in the unity of all things is Monism. Its why the philosophy of New Age thinking has been summed up as: "All is God", "All is one" and
"All is well". The New Age concept of God is impersonal, usually described as Force, Energy, Essence, Consciousness, Vibration, Principle, or Being
- surprise, surprise just like the eastern religions espouse.
Buddha "I am one with God"
Your statements show that your issue has nothing to do with Paul whatsoever, but rather your rejection of the Creator of Heaven and Earth. Like
Adam's iniquity, you share the Buddhas beliefs.
Man is not God, and unregenerate man in his sole Adamic state, is separated from his Creator. The descendants of Adam were born in his image, not in
the image and likeness of Our Creator.
The Buddhist tradition is no stranger to violence.
Prof. Jerryson writes in Monks With Guns: Discovering Buddhist Violence "It was then that I realized that I was a consumer of a very successful
form of propaganda. Since the early 1900s, Buddhist monastic intellectuals such as Walpola Rahula, D. T. Suzuki, and Tenzin Gyatso, the Fourteenth
Dalai Lama, have labored to raise Western awareness of their cultures and traditions. In doing so, they presented specific aspects of their Buddhist
traditions while leaving out others."
Porf. Paul Demieville writes:
"We are told that the first reason [to put the Brahmins to death] was out of pity [for them], to help the Brahmans avoid the punishment they had
accrued by committing evil deeds while continuously slandering Buddhism. 
Here we arrive at a disturbing theme found in Buddhist thought: “compassionate killing”. Killing is normally forbidden because it is done with
evil intent (hatred, vengeance, etc.), but if it is done with “compassion”, it becomes something permissible, even praiseworthy.
The Buddhist does the unbeliever a favor by killing him, “an act of charity”:
In the Zen sect in Japan, they interpreted the argument for taking another’s life as “attempting to bring the other’s Buddha nature to life”
(Buddha nature exists in virtually every living being), “by putting an end to the passions that lead astray…”
They make killing an act of charity. 
Buddhism and Hinduism beliefs drove the Kamikaze pilots, lead its monks to not follow a path of peace but set themselves on fire, and to view KILLING
OTHERS AS AN ACT OF CHARITY. Their religion is sold to the west as "spiritual, yet not religious" and as peace-loving, and one of tolerance. They
don't bother to tell the westerners, the atheistic kids of Christian forefathers, that their brand of "tolerance" is false because they fully
believe that if you are not Buddhist in this lifetime, you will eventually be Buddhist in another.
Buddhists and Hindu religions are as Antichrist as they come, based solely on the serpent doctrines of falsehood that men are gods and eternal.
Shiva sits outside of CERN. The Freemasons just put a woman, nee Krishna, up as their commander of expedition 33 on the ISS. Those who hold their same
beliefs lace their dogma with the idea of "compassionate killing", the idea that us "useless eaters" and "unenlightened ones" just need to
depart sooner rather than later in order for us to "evolve spiritually" - that it's not really murder when they believe that my spirit is
eternal.... So you are going to tell me that men and women who hold such beliefs aren't prepared to bring about the end of the world as we know it???
