A man from China who was converted to Christ told this story:

A man fell into a dark, slimy pit. He tried to climb out of the pit, but he couldn’t. Confucius came along, saw the man and said, "Poor fellow, had he listened to me, he never would have gotten there," and he went on. Buddha came along and saw the man in the pit and said, "Poor fellow, if he’ll come up here, I’ll help him," and he too kept on walking. Then Jesus Christ came along and said, "Poor fellow." And then he jumped down into the pit and lifted him out.

(From a sermon by Todd Catteau "Christ Hope" 12/21/2008)
