Was Jesus a Guru, a Lama, or Lord? Part 3

Jesus was a Buddhist, at this claim the left and Gnostics alike cheer. The thought that this carpenter from Nazareth was no one of authority. No, He is the meek mild Buddhist giving a gnostic message which plays nice all the other religions. There is one small issue – it’s a lie. This portrait they paint is not real.
