Sola Gratia

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."
-Tiger Woods

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."
