In this video, Sam Chan explains how Buddhist longings for power and peace are fulfilled in Jesus.
I asked my missionary friends who are in Taiwan about this. And they say that no one is ever truly a high Buddhist. Instead, we have street, folk Buddhism, where people actually look for two things. Power and control in their lives and also, peace and shalom.
Jesus is the only one who can give us power over say, evil spirits, the power to be healed.
And Jesus gives us peace. He doesn’t take away suffering, but he lets us know there is a wisdom, there’s a plan, a purpose, a direction to this universe. And because of that, we can enjoy a peace, our shalom that no one else can enjoy.
