Kills your soul, that is. Listen as I discuss how both Jesus the Christ and the Buddha warn us of the dangers of human desires. The reason desire is so dangerous is because it replaces God's Law of Perfect Love with another law, which is the law of "I want what I want right now!" How could 7 billion people operating under this law all at the same time ever make this perverted law work? They can't. Love, compassion, desire, selfishness, and the amazing similarities between the thoughts of Jesus the Christ and Buddha are all discussed.
