But seriously, folks...

When the Zen Guru protested that the hot-dog vendor should give him change, the hot-dog vendor remarked, "Oh no. Change comes from within."

This pretty much sums up the true nature of Buddhism--egoism hiding in faux self-centeredness.

The Holy Spirit chimes in: Oh, if they only had taken me seriously, they would have seen the opportunity to have me help them change.

This pretty much sums up the nature of Christianity--God is at the center, and we are completely dependent upon Him. Although I would substitute "enable" for "help."
