Re: Relating Aikido and Christianity

Jesus Christ was and more importantly IS the Son of God. To believe in Christ means that you believe in his ressurection, and no mere man can raise himself from the dead. Zen is not a religion, or even a philosophy, in my opinion. It is a technique to empty yourself of attachment to things, ego, yourself. So to answer your question, no, Jesus is not a representation of the buddha...and I'm not sure what your interpretation of the buddha is. The buddha never died for anyone's sins. That's what Jesus did.
Just my beliefs,
Matt
