Christianity and Buddhism see eye to eye in their origins and ideas, but the beliefs of these two religions are what separated them. Siddhartha Gautama, also known as Buddha, was the founder of Buddhism, while Jesus Christ was the founder of Christianity. Both were teachers of love and compassion for moral life, something that was challenging compared to the values of their time. When comparing their lessons, you find what seems like reworded copies. “Treat others the same way you want them to treat you” and “You shall love your neighbor, as yourself” was the words of Christ, while “Consider others as yourself” were the words of Buddha.
For many adhere of the three Abrahamic faiths -Christianity, Judaism, and Islam- in both ancient and contemporary society, respectively use their sacred or divine text as a pivotal source of guidance. In the Christian belief, the Bible is a book of sacred text regarded with divine inspiration and authority which was compiled in ancient times, containing scriptures from the New and Old Testament. As the Bible was transcribed in a different era with contrasting perspectives and morals to those of current times, when analysing the scriptures containing Abraham, it can be interpreted that they do not hold relevance today. Conversely, Abraham does provide an unyielding foundations for spiritual guidance and some interpretations of relevant gender roles. By understanding the four functions; ritual use, gender roles, spiritual guidance, and moral/ ethical justification, and applying it a contemporary believer of Christianity, Abraham can be interpreted as either relevant or irrelevant depending on the function.

This information is vital because many people who just simply chose a side of the fight for or against Buddhism may not actually know what the religion represents. By reading the sermon, the Chinese citizens could form a better understanding of Buddhism.
Therefore, a new branch of Hinduism emerged and is now known as Buddhism. One of the two similarities between the two religions is Symbolism. Moreover, the two religions figured out the how to avoid death. On the other hand, a difference between Hinduism and Buddhism is the fundamental ideology.

This similarity highlights how both Buddhism and Judaism are more uniform compared to other religions such as Christianity. Even though the Torah and the Five Precepts have different beliefs for their respective faiths, both of these two religions have an essential book of rules for the appropriate and model behavior. The Jews have the Torah. The Torah is the first five books of the Bible: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.
First, the trinity doctrine sets the Christian view of God apart from all religious perspectives, including other monotheistic viewpoints (such as Judaism and Islam). Only the Christina God is one in essence but three in personhood (in philosophical terms: one Who and three Whos).

In addition to this, one might argue that even though the new age culture accepted and duplicated the body art of the Polynesian natives, their tattoos will represent tribal history (DeMello, 2014, pg 56). This makes those enthusiasts, who wear tattoos on their bodies ‘not only anachronistic but inauthentic’ (Thomas, 2005).
