Doubting Christianity can Lead to Buddhism

At the young age of 10 Ryan was questioning Christianity because he said "It didn't feel right." This questioning or doubting eventually lead him to Buddhism.

Ryan worked at a local bookstore and was given permission from management to be on The Way of the Master Radio just this past Thursday. After the radio segment with Ray, Ryan told me that he was willing to talk but that he didn't want to debate. He made it clear that he didn't want to compare his worldview with the Biblical worldview and felt no need to do so. But for not wanting to "debate" he had some very song opinions about Christianity.

As with many of the eastern religions, Buddhism is not easy to understand. Little has been done to understand this religion, which has gained much popularity in recent times. All that one needs to do is to go to the nearest Christian bookstore and look at the apologetics section to see how minimal the materials are on Buddhism.

Ryan finally admitted that even to espouse to have no worldview--is a worldview. So I explained to him that Buddhism does not answer the biggest questions of life such as, where we came from, why we are here, and where we are going. Only Scripture can give us the answers to these questions and more! Christ alone offers forgiveness of sins! Ryan in attempting to rid himself of his Christian upbringing and is hardening his heart against the Gospel. Please pray for him.
