1) Nirvana through non-clinging vs Getting to know Jesus
Buddha taught to not attach to anything for attachment leads to suffering. Jesus on the other hand taught to connect and to attach, he took on the sin of us all and wants us to connect in healthy ways with each other!
What do you think?

So the Buddhist idea of "heaven" is, oddly enough, the same idea of some Christian denominations of hell.
Now oddly enough, I do have a healthy respect for the Buddhist faith. I consider the Dalai Lama to be a rather wise man with a lot of sound advice for living. I think that China should face stiff penalties for their occupation of Tibet, and that Tibet should be allowed to be its own autonomous nation. So while I don't believe it is the true faith, I think that the world is a better place by having Buddhism as an option in terms of religious faiths.

For a Christians, Buddhism can look nice on the outside, but we do have to look deeper and see the spiritual implications. There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is death right? Buddhism exemplifies this exact issue. This isn't a matter of not throwing the baby out with the bath water. The central core tenants of Buddhism are incompatible with Christianity. For that matter, any belief system that contradicts any part of God's absolute truth found in the bible is incompatible.
That being said, is Buddhism valid for the world? Sure. However, the world is in darkness and lost, so what's right for the world will eventually lead to the 2nd death.
