    Discuss? Perhaps, but come to a consensus? No.



    It is your problem if you wish to convert me from Buddhism to Christianity.
    I don't convert anyone. The Holy Spirit does that. My job is to tell you why I have the hope inside me. That's it.


    Buddhism is a Universalist religion; all living beings attain nirvana eventually. Even Mara, the rough equivalent of Lucifer, will attain nirvana some time in the future. Universalism has been a point of discussion within Buddhism before. The non-universalist position was rejected.

    You missed the part where I said from a Christian perspective. This thread is not for discussing Buddhism. This area of the forum may be, but Buddhism and nirvana are not the topic of this thread. Please start your own if you want to discuss them, or I will have the mods move your posts.
