As everyone knows, Tiger Woods held a press conference this morning to address his recent issues.
Chris Brauns has some great thoughts on Wood's remorse and his professed Buddhism:
Tiger Woods today issued an unqualified apology for his infidelity. I appreciate the way Tiger took ownership and pray he will hear the invitation of the Gospel.
At the same time, Tiger’s statement raises questions about his professed Buddhism. Tiger said:
"Part of following this path for me is Buddhism, which my mother taught me at a young age. People probably don’t realize it, but I was raised a Buddhist, and I actively practiced my faith from childhood until I drifted away from it in recent years. Buddhism teaches that a craving for things outside ourselves causes an unhappy and pointless search for security. It teaches me to stop following every impulse and to learn restraint. Obviously I lost track of what I was taught."
Besides saying that immorality is wrong, how will Buddhism help?

Outside of the time spent in my role as a pastor, I spend most of my time with my family -- a good deal of that coaching various sports teams that my children are involved with.
