At least this statement:

"For one thing, in Buddhism we have to work out our own salvation. We don’t expect a savior to do it for us.
"

In the Tibetian Book of the Dead, a Buddhist book, it is said that no one can make the crossing on their own and that a guru or close spiritual friend or friends, or as a last resort , the 'Lord of Great Compassion" is available for all for the crossing unto salvation.

So either Buddhist teachings are not consistent or Buddhism is not so different from Christianity or Hinduism, which says the same thing\
