Is Christianity the same as Buddhism?


Many people sincerely think that Christianity is very similar to Buddhism, because both religions teach about doing good deeds and having a compassionate heart. Other similarities include miracles and the use of stories and parables.

However, Christianity and Buddhism are not two roads that lead to the same place. The destinations of Buddhism and Christianity are different. The Buddha saw his role as helping others understand the Buddhist dharma and to find their own way to enlightenment. The Saviour Jesus came to bring people into a personal, living and life-changing relationship with God by removing the greatest obstacle, human sin.
