Buddhism and Christianity: Why can't both be right?


  • Jaelznic 6 years ago

    This is a pretty one-sided and incomplete article. To say that if Buddhism is correct then Christianity is a lie is a work in half-truths, because the Buddha taught that everything is a construct of the human mind, not just religion, but all attachments. If Buddhism is correct, then everything is a lie, even the concept of a lie. Nirvana, the goal of a Buddhist, is a state of nothing. Nothing for eternity is a concept that scares most Westerners. On the Christianity side of the argument, one aspect of Christianity is used here as the last word. Christians, like members of any religion, don't all agree, and the majority opinion changes over time. To put pitch these two belief systems against each other is silly, anyway. To do so in such incomplete terms is irresponsible.

    Hi Jael,
    Thank you for your comment. Well, Jesus taught truth, and that there are lies and there are truths. You mentioned that if Buddhism is correct, then everything is a lie, event the concept of a lie. Christianity explains that there is real truth - and that instead of a state of nothing, Jesus taught that there really is a heaven and hell. The Christian doctrine has never changed, it's been the same, for it is not based on majority opinion but on the scriptures, Truth spoken through the Holy Spirit by God's Holy prophets and Jesus himself. We can also know the Bible is true due to the over 300 prophecies that have been fulfilled perfectly, dead sea scrolls, etc, as well as the wonderful Holy Spirit who fills Christians and comes upon Christians, giving them the fruit of the Spirit which is love, joy, peace, etc. (that is where the extreme joy of the born-again Christian comes from).
    I appreciate your comments as always :)
    Have a wonderful day!!
    Love and respect,

    If you are Buddhist, or any other religion, know that Jesus loves you so, so much! He invites all men to Him, regardless of who you are or your past, to have a relationship with Him, as well as the promise of eternal life. His love is so, so big! Jesus said:

    "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls" (Matthew 11).

    You can read my other articles on salvation if it interests you! God loves you! Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life..." He is the Truth, trust me! He loves you more than you will ever know! Make today the day you get saved and accept this incredible gift! :)

    "Thanks be to God for this indescribable gift!"

    Yes, Jesus is the Messiah Lord and Savior! He is not a teacher or a lunatic! He is the Son of God and He is God. He loves us all and wants all of us to go to heaven. It is up to us to choose to be with Him in heaven or not. The choice is ours.
