I had a conversation with a colleague over lunch, and we discussed about world views.
She’s a Buddhist and explained how the Buddhist view of suffering can help encourage people around her. And that while suffering is bad, how a person deals with it can have an overall positive effect as a testimony to people around them.
I agree with the general approach and shared about how my mum was divinely protected from an early detection of lung cancer etc.
While conversing I was trying to find ways to “put a stone into her shoe” and introduce The Christian view - that the world was not meant to be this way. That it’s gone wrong but God provided a solution through Jesus’ sacrifice.
Wonder how would the people here engage Buddhists or talk about those things? I’ve asked questions (to which she answered them well) but not sure what else I could have done to make her wonder more.
Any thoughts or similar experience?
