Three sectarian views that are rebuked by wise people:

1. There are priests and contemplatives who hold this teaching, hold this view: Whatever a person experiences — pleasant, painful, or neither pleasant nor painful — that is all caused by what was done in the past.

2. There are priests and contemplatives who hold this teaching, hold this view: Whatever a person experiences — pleasant, painful, or neither pleasant nor painful — that is all caused by a supreme being's act of creation.

3. There are priests and contemplatives who hold this teaching, hold this view: Whatever a person experiences — pleasant, painful, or neither pleasant nor painful — that is all without cause and without condition.

(from Anguttara Nikaya 3.61)
