Key Issues:

Avoid Terms
"new birth", "rebirth", "regeneration", "born again"
complicated due to reincarnation
Accommodation
don't reduce Christian truth to a form of Buddhism
Buddhism is accommodating
Relational
relationships are seen as permanent
typically non-confrontational
Complication with Culture
becoming a Christian is not only a conversion of faith but also a conversion of culture
it's becoming less rather than more, alienating yourself from family, nation, and culture
Extensive Process
long process, not done in a short time
Larger Picture
not isolated individuals but members of whole networks
needs of the group outweigh the needs of the individual
"...rather be in Hell with family, than in heaven without them."
