Why don't you read again the sutta and this time read carefully and thoroughly. Then answer which view do you hold:clw_uk wrote:Who can sayvesak2014 wrote:I wonder whether I misunderstand the sutta.
This is an old thread so I'd like to ask (for confirmation) those who commented recently (clw_uk, waterchan, David N. Snyder.)
After reading the sutta, according to it, you guys think actors go to hell? Seriously?
If we take the position of all suttas being authentic, the Buddha never lying and rebirth postmortem being true, then yes actors go to hell.
a) actors go to hell (or animal realm)
b) one who holds the view that "actors go to hell" will go to hell (or animal realm)
Sutta is authentic to the extent of one's conviction in the Triple Gems.Or is that sutta inauthentic? However if it is, how do we know what other suttas are authentic and which are embellished?
