In Buddhism, our original nature is Buddha nature. In Christianity (not in all schools) our original nature is sinful.
Now let's consider a certain situation - a person insults us. We become angry. That situation is only a trigger, isn't it? The anger is always there, and a certain situation triggers it. You can only trigger something which is already present - you can't trigger something which isn't there.
Wouldn't this mean anger (and by extension other negative states too) are part of our nature? Wouldn't that make our original nature sinful, as the Christians believe? Where is the buddha nature in any of this?
