Sermon Illustrations

I want to show you another subtle lie that I was held captive by in my teens. It is the doctrine of suffering from Buddhism, one of the three biggest religions in the world. It says that life is permeated with suffering caused by desire, that suffering ceases when desire ceases, (sounds pretty good so far doesn’t it) and that enlightenment obtained through right conduct and wisdom and meditation releases one from desire and suffering and rebirth. Whoops! It is half true, but if you follow the second part, you are doomed.

Trust me, it doesn’t work. Every religion I have studied says that self desire is bad, but only one gives us the real solution through repentance, love for others, and surrendering our own desires to follow Christ.
