Duane said, "Christianity is different from all other religions in that it defines entering heaven as an accomplishment that only God can preform while requiring only a willing soul for participation"

Tibetian Buddhism as expressed by the Tibetian Book of the Dead teaches that no human can achieve salvation by him or herself. All need help from God via the Lord of Great Compassion if no other spiritual help is available.

Actually Christianity is not very different from other religions. What Jesus taught, with a few embellishments, like thinking can be adultery, or that salvation is possible, is very much a part of Judiaism. Jesus was very jewish. It was Paul that transformed Christainity into something separate from Judiaism.
