What Beliefs Do Buddhism Have?
The four noble truths are the basic basis for Buddhism, they involve the different aspects of suffering, though the Tao is not part of Buddhist beliefs, they have similarities and can be compared to beliefs that involve God,
the non-universal belief of karma and reincarnation that are not followed in all of the beliefs that include God do have references to ideas that can correspond to reincarnation such as sow as ye reap and But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken,
since it is not proclaimed when judgment day is, it can only be assumed that it would be at the end of your life, and if that account that they give does not tally, it will be balanced in a future life,
Buddhism has its sort of commandments the same as in the Bible, not lying, not stealing not killing, etc. , following these rules keep a cosmic balance that ensures that you do not acquire any bad karma that will upset the balance,
God "will repay each person according to what they have done." Just by going to hell for doing something unjust does not teach the offender any sort of lesson, but coming back to live another life and being confronted by the injustices that you might have done to others will balance the scales nicely,
just because Buddhists do not believe that God is orchestrating these reincarnations or that there is a soul involved in these various life long penances is of no great importance, just the acts that you do to acquire karma or the penances that are done to pay off or balance the cosmic scale are what really count,
even if Karma and reincarnation are not one of the functions of God and are just the cosmic clockworks of the Tao, it still provides what is necessary to maintain balance. In order to end the rebirths and the suffering on this planet, the requirements are the same in many faiths.
