  • Karma

    I really loathe the use of this word. I hear it thrown around in every day life, even by some Christians

    It is ludicrous to think that things will magically sort itself out. If people really got what we deserved, then we would all be going to hell. No one would even be successful at anything.

    yeah, i hear ya. its in that neighborhood of the whole buddhist/new age cult beliefs of "man is God"...which btw, was man's first believed lie in the garden of eden.

    ill tell you the word i cant stand: INTERFAITH

    i.e. - all religions are not just tolerable, but right...everyone takes different paths to the same place, blah, blah, blah...

    if you guys hear ANYONE promote interfaith, RUN. that person is a false prophet. can you imagine Peter calling islam beautiful, or Paul commending the followers of dalai lama for being strong in there faith???

    (John 14:6) [And Jesus saith unto him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."]

    all roads, aye? mr. interfaith will make his wrong turn at albuquerque.
    I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you. (Psalms 32:8)

      There is this young man at a Pic Quick I go to alot that must believe in this karma stuff as he always makes some sort of comment suggesting things like that. Like things will go wrong for him and he will say things are balancing out...just odd things like that. At first I wasn't real sure what he was talking about..I was thinking more of the ying yang thing that is taught in Eastern religions...good and bad balancing out.

      But you are right...if things were truly 'fair' and 'balanced' alot of us would be in serious trouble just in this life!

      God bless

We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; We drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; We drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated?" - D A Carson

          Karma?

          More like,

          Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.
          If Satan can keep us busy swinging our swords at one another, there is no hope of a united attack on the kingdom of darkness. KJV, NIV, ESV or ABCDEFG; there is no time to bicker over such things. We'll devour each other if allowed to continue. We should grab the marching orders written in the way we best understand and get to work.

              Amen! I was wondering yesterday why some professional athletes with millions go bankrupt and was wondering why a large casino chain filed for bankruptcy. My buddy reminded me that they don't give to the church and to look at what they perpetuate.

              God is the perfect judge.

                Yepper!!!

                the concept is very real - so real it could not be ignored by "other" religions. Call it a different name, it's all reaping and sowing.

                  What about karma compared to Matthew 15 : 11 ?

                  Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man

                    I like the bumper sticker "My Karma Ran Over Your Dogma". Totally unscriptural but cute.

                      I understand how some use the term, "karma", but to me, it truly is the "Do unto others" principle that even the heathens have to acknowledge.

                        Funny subject karma, I had a debate with a "christian" about karma and she said karma was real and I said Gods Grace supercedes karma and she said no, So I had shared some scripture with her and she still denied it, so I said you keep your karma and I'll keep Gods Grace.

                          Why is it cute when they are claiming that hinduism is the truth over Christianity?

                              Whenever I have spoken to people about "karma". I have used the verse found at Hebrews 10:30, adding that God is the just Judge.

                              For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. And again, “The LORD will judge His people.”
