12. 30. 11
I heard an amazing parable that a man spoke who converted from living a life of Confucius beliefs to living a life following after Jesus.

A poor, filthy, man covered in dirty wounds, scabs and rashes, fell into a deep, deep dark hole in the ground, and had no way to get out. He had been trying for many, many years and couldn't seem to find a way out.
Confucius sees him and says "Oh, poor man" and continues walking.
Buddha sees him and says "Oh, poor man, if only you would have followed all of my rules and traditions" and continues walking.
Jesus sees him and says "Oh, poor man" and jumps into the pit to save him.
