Here is your difficulty, in a simple nutshell.
You keep thinking that I am seeking to justify the LOA by saying that it is Buddhism or that it is Christianity.
I am not. There is no need for any such justification, any more than there is a need to justify Buddhism by saying that it is Christianity, or to justify Christianity by saying that it is Buddhism.
What I have suggested though is that there are relationships between all these different schools of thought. There are similarities and parallels.
How can there not be? All have something fundamental to say about mind, reality, intentions, choices etc.
Even what we call the LOA is a loose notion. For example, we could say that all of the following are different schools of LOA:
hooponopono; the Abraham teachings; the Seth Material; the Steve Pavlina subjective reality posts; Theosophy; hypnosis; New Thought; Wiccan witchcraft; Toltec teachings; David Bohm's Implicate Order; humanistic psychology; neuro-linguistic programming; the Vedas etc etc.
