The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal name. The nameless is the beginning of heaven and Earth. The named is the mother of the ten thousand things.
I do not recall, Jesus ever saying "build churches, temples, and kill those who doesn't follow christianity..." nor he said "christianity is religion".
I know of it and I watched a few episodes when I went on a vacation in Taiwan when I was a kid. Other then that time, never watched it again but I do hear of it frequently due to its popularity. Lot of anime and mangas refer to it.
I read some chapters when I was in Vietnam. It s really popular there (and in every asian country I think) They were funny and a bit entertaining. I remeber the chapter when the main character (Nobita?) studied for an exam by printing the text on breads and eating them.
