I've never taken the class but I have listened to him alot. He may say God once in a while but not trying to convert or use religious overtones.

Just curious though. Why would you ask such a question?

I saw a piece of paper around the office that said buffini on it that had references to god....

obviously that may not be something that everyone wants to hear in a business class, especially when you pay $400 for it and it wasnt disclosed to you as such...kwim?

I have only listened to parts of the but class but never taken the course. The context was an "oh my God" during an story he was telling. It's not a religion course though. Actually he is pretty entertaining while he teaches.

I don't think he makes any reference in the 100 Days class. I have heard him quote a verse from the Bible once, but it was talking about how perseverance develops character- not anything that should offend anyone; perseverance does develop character.

I don't see how or why mentioning "God" would need to be disclosed even for a business class. Am I missing something?

Because people that are not religious that are paying for the program do not want to hear religious content.

Case in point...Me. I am in the middle of the 100 Days program and I have not heard any references to religion. I would be pretty surprised if I did.

IMO, it's not religious in a "bring you to the light and the gloray of the lard jebus!" but he does mention using his church in his SOI and something else about how "evil should not prosper" but it does in regards to malicious agents who scoop deals and mistreat clients. Maybe some other stuff too - but not enough that I felt he was advocating one belief over another.

With regards to people who are not religious not wanting to hear religious content in the program, the same thing could be said about any group. Someone might not be a hunter, but the program uses a hunting analogy. I just don't understand why it matters if the message is clear and relates to business.

Buffini respects all faiths. He doesn't preach or teach religious stuff. He believes in us having balance in our lives, which often means some sort of spiritual connection, but that's up to the individual.

He has some quotes that are his favorites, but will tell you to substitute "God" for spirit, etc. or whatever word you want if you want to use the quote. For instance, my favorite affirmation is "I relax, I do my best, and let X handle the rest". You can say "God", "life", or something else if you want to use that affirmation.

Because this is America -- and people get freaked out
when others start mentioning religion to them.

Even if he does, who cares? If you're looking to be offended by something, you will be.

If he mentions Jesus, does it automatically make everything that he taught worthless?

People need to stop looking to be offended. If you want the knowledge, take the course. If Jesus' name comes up, your ears will not burn. Get over it.

I don't know which is more offensive..being a Christian or being a Republican. LOL

Then you have Christian democrats who offend the Christian republicans...

Can't we all just get along? I don't get offended if someone makes mention of Allah or Buddha or Mohammad (sp?)? I really don't. I do not care if someone says Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays. I don't mind if someone uses their faith to make a point.

One of the most respected speakers in the business - Zig Ziglar - often used churchy type illustrations to make a point. The point was still valid, he wasn't preachin' at ya to git saved or burn...

Religion is intertwined in the life of a person of faith. If you're not a person of faith then your philosophy or whatever you call it is intertwined in your very being. Should you be told to stifle it cause you disagree? Or can't we just all agree to disagree and respect each other and get over it?
