Perhaps the biggest difference between Christianity and Buddhism is the doctrines of karma and reincarnation.
Karma is the idea that everything in the past that you have done whether it is good or bad, adds up and result in either good or bad consequences you face in the present time.
Another key aspect of Buddhism is the doctrine of reincarnation Reincarnation is the idea that once you die you are physically reborn into a new organism.
Ravi Zacharias says,
“Buddhism also invokes the doctrine of karma and reincarnation. The opening lines of Buddhist scripture say that every individual is the sum total of what he or she thought in his or her past life. “Ravi Zacherias
Christianity has a completely different view on the idea on the concept of what happens to you after you die.
Hebrews 9:27 says:
“Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment.”Hebrews 9:27
In Christianity, there is one life and after that, it is time to come face to face with God.

So, on Buddhism, after a person dies the results of karma determine what happens to that person. As opposed to Christianity, where after a person dies God’s judgment determines what happens to that person.
I’m not sure I understand what’s meant to be more complex in the former as compared to the latter.
