Buddhist view on Christianity
« on: August 19, 2014, 12:41:04 AM »
I want this thread to explore Buddhist interpretations of the Christian belief system, especially the belief that Jesus Christ is an almighty God force that can be tapped into by all humans through faith and doing so can induce real personal transformation without having to put forth any real effort to change other than accepting Christ as God.

I'll start with my thoughts.

The belief in Jesus Christ is a fine example of attachment to views.  The happiness that the belief in Christ brings is ultimately unsatisfactory because it is born from and conditioned on the mental constructs of a deluded mind and is thus illusory and impermanent.
