Many Christians are woefully uninformed as to what Buddhists actually believe. Some "christian" leaders, instead of boldly proclaiming the gospel of Christ, are teaching that there should be harmony and cooperation between Buddhist doctrine and the Christian faith. If you study what Buddhism teaches, however, you must conclude that there can be no harmony between the two. They are opposite in almost every way and one would have to deny Christ and the Bible in order to embrace Buddhism.
