I don't really think that Buddhism and Christianity are all that different. Christians can certainly follow the teachings of Buddha while still believing that Christ was mankinds savior. Buddhism isn't about worshiping any diety, but more of turning the focus inward and projecting that inner person outward and making the world a tiny bit better. It's about loving your fellow man and respecting all life on earth no matter how insignifigant you might view it. Buddhism can be viewed as a life philosophy which can help explain kharmic consequences of our actions -much like Christ taught of sin. Buddha also references Christ several times in his teachings.
