Although there are vast differences between Buddhism and Christianity, especially in their understanding transcendence, they nevertheless share a similar understanding of what holds us back from it. For the Buddhist, it is desire, for the Christian, it is sin, both of which speak of a wandering heart. For when our heart is wandering it is hard to drive straight and hit the mark.

One thought on “Ethics from Buddhist and Christian perspectives

  1. Buddhist or Christian, “desire” is God’s first calling to man. All our desires of human love, of things – none of them completely satisfy. Only God can satisfy mans desire. He thirsts for us.
