Identical, and equally worthy of discusssion. You see Christianity took a horrible turn when it shifted from small communties of practitioners to the centralised religious hierarchies which dominate it now. Part of this change is premised on the nature of Christ and human capcity to emulate Christ. Christ is God, and since we cannot be God, or access God (unless we are wearing the right hat and robe and are part of the elite that understands the specific language used for religious cermony)... Sounds kind of familiar doesn't it?
"When one is not in accord with the true view
Meditation and conduct become delusion,
One will not attain the real result
One will be like a blind man who has no eyes."
