Thank you dharmamoon. I forgot something important. If God exists or not, it is not relevant for the solution of suffering, because it is clear that suffering exists. Existing God or not, suffering is here, so Buddhism has founded a way to terminate whith suffering in this life, in the present moment, not in God's paradise. For Buddhism the important issue is suffering, not salvation. So this could be used for Grace to explain why Buddhism is not a theist religion.
Thank you and best regards!!
: Very well stated, I have always thought this way about God. Maybe the reason I love Buddhism so much is the fact that I alone am in charge of my destiny!
