Christianity and Buddhism

The Christian doctrines of creation and redemption clearly show that our triune God is not anti-matter.  There is no room for spiritual nothingness or Nirvana in the Christian faith.  God became man to save sinful people – body and soul.  He will one day renew all of creation.  Christianity and Buddhism are completely different.  Os Guinness reminds us of G. K. Chesterton’s great quip on this topic.

“Christ said, ‘Seek first the kingdom and all these things shall be added unto you.’  Buddha said, ‘Seek first the kingdom and then you will need none of these things.’”

G. K. Chesterton, quoted in Os Guinness, Long Journey Home, p. 80.
