One of the primary problems with Zen Buddhism, (although not the only one), is that it is based upon the principle of introspection and self-enlightenment, whereas the Bible clearly states that self and human nature are fallen, and in a sinful state. Zen Buddhism teaches that enlightenment comes from within, whereas God's Word says that enlightenment comes from above, in the form of Jesus Christ. In short, the core belief of Buddhism is totally contrary to the Christian Gospel. We simply cannot save ourselves no matter how hard we try. Only Jesus can. Thus the Apostle Paul wrote: "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that NOT OF YOURSELVES: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast...LOOKING UNTO JESUS the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God." Ephesians 2:8-9, Hebrews 12:2, KJV Buddhism leads to spiritual darkness, while Jesus Christ leads to the Light of God's Truth.
