Bus will probably be cheaper, but I think the train will be enough faster, more convenient and more comfortable to be worth the extra price. Trains from Brussels Midi, or Bussels(South station) are the most direct involving 1 or 2 connections. The fastest, most direct trains make a connection in Paris and do not go through Luxembourg.

Have you looked at flying? That might actually be the cheapest. Easy Jet and Brussels Air fly this route from Brussels International. You might also find cheap flights from Charleroi airport.
