We need no person or entity external to ourselves; we have all the tools that we need. Jesus himself said this, however thousands of years of biblical
translation has distorted the text, rendering it less than useful.
Buddha became enlightened without Jesus, he wasn't even born yet!

Apart from the Son of God, you do not exist.
15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth,
visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all
things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead,
so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to
himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
We are the loaf of bread and he is the heel on either end.
1 Corinthians 10
17 Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all share the one loaf.
The Heel (1 Corinthians 15):
If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. 45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”[f]; the last Adam, a
Adam is the error and the redeemer both. As Genesis 3 says, the heel crushes the head of Satan. Job 19 reveals the mystery.
25 I know that my redeemer[c] lives,
and that in the end he will stand on the earth.[d]
26 And after my skin has been destroyed,
yet[e] in[f] my flesh I will see God;
27 I myself will see him
with my own eyes—I, and not another.
How my heart yearns within me!
28 “If you say, ‘How we will hound him,
since the root of the trouble lies in him,[g]’
29 you should fear the sword yourselves;
for wrath will bring punishment by the sword,
and then you will know that there is judgment.
The root of the trouble lies in him, yet He redeemed us as well from the error. How?
And I will put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring[a] and hers;
he will crush your head,
and you will strike his heel.”
Buddha must be born again as well. There are no exceptions until this happens:
28 so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who
are waiting for him.
He must appear a 2nd time.
