m
The goal of
life was to
live a good
moral life.

Buddhism

Taoism

Christianism

Islam

Buddhists do
not regard man
as sinful by
nature of 'in
rebellion
against god'.
Every human
being is a
person of great
worth who has
within himself
a vast store of
good as well as
evil habits.

Taoism
teaches a
person to
follow their
breath, to
embrace
wonder and
the joy in
living
gracefully
with style.

Christianity view on
good and evil is that
all goodness comes
from the inherent
character of God
and evil is declining
or refusing to submit
to the authority of
God, to love and to
serve Him.

Understandin
g of life

The purpose
of existence
is to reach
one's
highest
potential as
a human
being.

In Buddhism,
the primary
purpose of life
is to end
suffering. The
Buddha taught
that humans
suffer because
we continually
strive after
things that do
not give lasting
happiness.

When human
nature is
aligned with
the rest of
nature, order
and harmony
are the
result.

Concept of
Salvation

Confucians
do not
typically
hold beliefs
about the
individual
salvation or
damnation
of persons
beyond this
life, ancestor
worship is
an important
part of
Confucian
faith and
practice.
The
Confucian
philosophy
is built on
the
foundational
belief that
man is
basically
good.

Buddha made
Nirvana/Salvati
on universally
achievable
understanding
and practicing
Buddhist
methodology
of four noble
truths and
eight fold
paths.

Taoist
concepts of
salvation
focused on
this life rather
than an
afterlife.

Playing Godhow
inconceivable such a
proposition is for the
Christian mind!
People are subject to
limitations of time
and space; they do
not know what is
best. Sin has
weakened their
minds, bodies, and
whole beings. Life
itself is not their
own
One is saved by
Jesus Christ.
However, they
emphasize that
judgment in hell
upon sinners is of
limited duration, and
that God uses
judgment to bring
sinners to
repentance.

Many things and


events which at first
appear to be good
may prove in the
final outcome to be
evil, and vice versa.
True knowledge, that
is knowledge which
is not subject to
limitations, is only
with God. The
Quran clearly states
that God is the only
authority in defining
good and evil.
The aim of creation
in the following
words: Belief in God
is the highest aim of
creation and the
most sublime result,
and humanitys
most exalted rank is
knowledge of Him.

Buddhism's
main concern
has always
been freedom
from dukkha
(unease),and
the path to
that ultimate
freedom
consists in
ethical action
(karma),
meditation and
in
understanding
the nature of
reality (praja).

Tao expresses
the path
human beings
must take to
join with the
unity of the
universe.

View as good

Major
Philosophical
Claim

The Philosophy of
Christianity is a way
of life. It involves the
reason for
human life, why
human life was
created and
sustained by God
and nourished by
His Spirit, and lastly,
to where our
human life is
destined to lead us
in the future.

No one can
gain salvation simpl
y by virtue of
their belief or deeds,
instead it is the
Mercy of God, which
merits
them salvation.

Islamic philosophy is
the systematic
investigation of
problems connected
with life,the universe
, ethics, society, and
so on as conducted
in the Muslim world.
