Yes, and the hairshirts were just a loaner. They want them back when we are done with them. The dirtier the better.
“The truth knocks on the door and you say, "Go away, I'm looking for the truth," and so it goes away. Puzzling.” ― Robert M. Pirsig

Christianity is nonsense, and it did not borrow from Buddhism. The idea itself is preposterous.

Glad to see you are back, PeterB. Are you willing to explain your position?

"If beings knew, as I know, the results of giving & sharing, they would not eat without having given, nor would the stain of miserliness overcome their minds. Even if it were their last bite, their last mouthful, they would not eat without having shared."
