Difference between Christian and Buddhist meditation

What is it that would then make what we might call meditation uniquely Christian or decisively non-Christian? And there’s two things that I would say that define what you do. It’s sort of what you do next after you slow down and take a deep breath, calm down then what do you do? And I think there are two things about a Christian approach to meditation that really distinguish it from the other things that are out there. One is that Christian meditation is full of content. Christian meditation and the bible encourages us to meditate. It’s full of a person, it’s full of God, it’s full of his promises, his will, his revelation. I just think of how as I look back on my own life the way the 23rd Psalm has just been my meditation hundreds of times over the years that I’ve been a Christian. And I’ll slow it down, I’ll stop on a particular part of it but it is a revelation of a man’s soul who is deeply abiding in the living God. So Christian meditation does not aim to just go into a void or vacuum of no thought. A Christian view does not view words as the problem. More eastern Buddhistic Hindu type meditation views words as the problem. Somehow words are an illusion. The Christian revelation believes in it. We believe in a God who speaks, who has made us as language beings so the fact that in our thought life there can be content is just one of those unique things about a Christian approach.
