When your religion is characterized the way Tiger Woods characterizes Buddhism you do not find peace. No amount of self-effort brings the type of satisfaction needed to recover from what he has done, or been through. Only the cross of Christ can bring that peace. For the cross qlone saves us from our sin and from our self righteousness. Make no mistake, we need salvation from both paths away from God.
"In the Buddhist religion you have to work for it yourself, internally, in order to achieve anything in life and set up the next life. It is all about what you do and you get out of it what you put into it. So you are going to have to work your butt off in every aspect of your life."
I thank God that he promises an easy yoke for those who trust in Christ Jesus. When found a sinner in the hands of an angry God there is only way to peace...and it's exactly opposite of "working your butt off."

"Please here me (and see point 3): there’s nothing bad, and probably lots good, about listening to emo bands, drinking fair trade coffee, and reading Wendell Barry at Panera Bread. Just don’t wear it all as a badge of spiritual honor."

There's a difference between being a leader and a campaigner. Our president is the latter. It's sort of like the difference between a pastor and a charlatan, itinerant preacher. How do I know this? The Washington Post confirms it:
"Seeking to close the deal on a health care overhaul, President Obama is getting out of Washington, leaving the city he loves to bash and giving himself a platform to portray himself as an outsider going up against big insurance companies and their Capitol Hill lobbyists."
