    When I “Like” your posts on Buddhism, please recognize that what is true is always true, no matter the source. As C.S. Lewis said (something along this line), 2+2=4, and always will in a base 10 system. ANY-thing else is wrong, but a man who answers 5 is closer than one that answers 37.
    Buddhism is one of those earthly philosophies that gets lots of things correct, especially remembering that the Buddha did NOT claim deity and would be disconcerted with “worship” as practiced by most Buddhists. He was one smart cookie. 😉
    However, he missed the mark substantially on issues of eternal life:
    “Work hard to gain your own salvation.” Buddha’s last words vs:
    “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” Paul to the Ephesians

      I agree with what you have said. Beautiful. The only way I can reply to this is that the Buddha simply saw through the confusion, so his intelligence was oriented in direction other than self interest. Thank you for enlightening me today (this is for the Buddha in you).
