The loving kindness that the Buddha speaks of (which is often translated as compassion in Buddhist literature) and the love of God that Jesus talks about are pointing to the same foundational reality. Both of them see love and compassion as the full and final source and goal of religion. The goal of religion is to make people like God and “God is Love” (1 John 4:8 [1]).
