That was hilarious Bhante. :mrgreen:
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

I've seen worse. It appears to be a sincere, well-meaning and reasonably intelligent attempt. Though it does seem to make a huge leap of faith and logic at the crucial spot and proclaim Jesus to be an answer to all "issues" of Buddhism, when Buddhism gives a more cogent answer already.

“I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” - Gandhi

"He, the Blessed One, is indeed the Noble Lord, the Perfectly Enlightened One;
He is impeccable in conduct and understanding, the Serene One, the Knower of the Worlds;
He trains perfectly those who wish to be trained; he is Teacher of gods and men; he is Awake and Holy. "

--------------------------------------------
"The Dhamma is well-expounded by the Blessed One,
Apparent here and now, timeless, encouraging investigation,
Leading to liberation, to be experienced individually by the wise. "

This may not be relevant, but I love it anyway...
