Christianity and Buddhism

With a surface level understanding you'll think Christianity and Buddhism are completely different philosophies. But with a thorough study of their esoteric and mystical traditions you'll see that they share fundamentally the same goal. Whether you want to call it nibbana, mystic union, Holy Spirit or Dharma, the path to follow requires always emptying your mind/soul of all the unnecessary defilements of this world.

>"Only when the soul turns away and denies itself so as to find him who is All will it be able to receive true peace and rest" - Julian of Norwich

>"This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications, the relinquishment of all acquisitions, the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Nibbana." - Gautama Buddha

>"He has to give up everything, including the body, and to disdain this present life, if he wishes to possess God alone in his heart. For the noetic vision of God, the divine Chrysostom has said, can by itself destroy the demonic spirits." - Philotheos of Sinai

>"A mind unruffled by the vagaries of fortune, from sorrow freed, from defilements cleansed, from fear liberated — this is the greatest blessing." - Gautama Buddha

Even early Christians used to believe in a doctrine of rebirth

      Meanwhile actual buddhists venerate gods

      Eastern religions are demonic because they insist that you are not your body, and for complete annihilation.
      In Christianity you are made in the image of God and will be in that body forever, being with God forever is the complete opposite of Nirvana
      >Even early Christians used to believe in a doctrine of rebirth
      yeah maybe heretics who got lots of things wrong. Irenaeus already debunked the gnostics

      >and for complete annihilation
      Buddha refuted both eternalism and annihilationism. Read your books.

            That says Buddha rejected them, not refuted them

            (Buddha doesn’t actually refute them)

    You don't know anything about Christianity.

    Christianity is about believing on Jesus Christ, who was God in the flesh, who lived a perfect life and died for our sins. When we believe on Him, the penalty of our sins is taken from us and we are given Christ's righteousness as a covering by God, so that we are judged as perfect by God when we are judged by Him after death.

    But Buddhism is a religion that denies our Saviour, and believes that a person can achieve "nirvanna" by naval-gazing enough. This is a demonic false religion. The point of buddhist meditation is to try to ignore their own guilty consciences, which tells them that they are going to burn in hell forever if they do not believe on Christ.

      You're exactly the kind of moron the thread warned against. Buddhists take responsibility for their actions and refuse to pin them on gods. The god of the masses is the desert sky father who lost to iron chariots and Chemosh, but the God of the learned is that which transcends being, time, place and word exactly as nibbana would put it. In the future the only christians left will be mystics, because the popularized form of Christianity falls apart like a house of cards under the simplest analysis.

        Again, you know nothing about Christianity. Don't puff yourself up and think that you've got it all figured out, while having a very limited understanding.

        Below is the most famous verse in the Bible, because it explains Christianity in such a concise and beautiful way:
        >For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
        John 3:16

        If you can understand John 3:16, then you understand Christianity. If you believe it, then you're saved.

          "Limited understanding" you're parrotting Constantinian propaganda for the masses (morons) who believe they've got it all figured out with a sermon from the local priest and a cursory read of the scriptures. Go read Meister Eckhart and figure out whether buddhism and christianity share the same message.

            Every post you make is further evidence that you literally don't have a clue. You're basing your understanding of Christianity off of fringe-grifters, Oyish posts, and YouTube videos.

            >>But Buddhism is a religion that denies our Saviour,
            To be fair the buddha never cared for any israelite and its israeliteism. DO you know why? Because the buddha was dead long before any israelite started shilling the israeli religion.

            >and believes that a person can achieve "nirvanna" by naval-gazing enough. This is a demonic false religion. The point of buddhist meditation is to try to ignore their own guilty consciences, which tells them that they are going to burn in hell forever if they do not believe on Christ.
            all of this is false and moronic.

            >all of this is false and moronic.
            You've certainly got that right. But not only is it false, but Buddhism is also intensely demonic.

            I'm basing it off the sermons of Eckhart, the early fathers and the scriptures the church tried to ban. You have literally zero understanding of buddhism.

            Ok, well maybe you'd be better off reading the Word of God instead of denying the necessity of your Saviour, Jesus Christ.

            I suppose I can sympathise with you, because I also was beginning to be drawn into mystical "Christianity" and buddhism before I was saved by the true gospel of Jesus Christ. I know you probably don't care for what I'm saying, but I'm warning you that you're on a path that will lead to eternal damnation.

            The earliest scriptures are Paul's letters and you can find cases of gnosis in no unclear terms because back when Paul was alive Christianity wasn't a sectarian religion yet. Christian mysticism is the highest realization of Christianity and if you truly deny all the mystical experiences over the centuries you're either a prottie or a secularized catholic who converted only for political reasons.

        You're mistaken. The soul doesn't exist in buddhism and it's certainly not the five elements that make up people.
