    Imagine how much better your life would be if you were on the path Jesus Christ walked. It's the only path that guarantees eternal life.

    Proponents of all major religions claim their paths guarantee eternal life.

    Buddhism is indeed a beautiful 'religion.'

    And if they make contradictory claims on how to get there they are either all false or believe it or not one of them may actually be true.

    If the Bible helps you to be a good person and true to yourself, let us celebrate that.

    "guarantees"
    You sound like a salesman.
    I don't believe in any guarantees except maybe physical death.

    "Imagine how much better your life would be if you were on the path Jesus Christ walked. "
    Well you'd be a copycat, playing it safe and learning nothing directly from the "Great Spirit" for yourself.
    The 'god of your own understanding' I think the AA people called it

    Hindus don't guarantee it. And there's a lot of them

    One size does not fit all, even if we are all made of the same "stuff" .

    Zen stories are characterized by the individual way all the masters "got there", without copying anyone and blazing their own trail

    Our society here in the west suffers from some deep unjustified indoctrination. Old school instruction from old white men who did not know what stars or atoms are. How do we rise above it?

    Jesus said, " I am the way". Quote from the opposing sources that you say guarantee eternal life.
