Hi Robert,

Though originating in the East, many in our Western culture have adopted this notion of Karma. It is subtle in the things we say, vis, “He got what he deserved”, “What goes a around, comes around”, “Looks like fate caught up with you”.

We have to be careful as these ideas are not exclusive to the world, as we hear these ideas in those who claim Christ as Savior. The believer’s “fate”, as you so well pointed out, is bound up in the reality of Christ our Hope. We need to understand(me included), that “we died already, and our lives are hidden with Christ in God”, not Karma Col 3:3

Thank you for your message!

Great points, Doc,
We believers must be diligent to continually reevaluate our relationship with Jesus, so that we stay on the right (Biblical) track. It was my pleasure to right this article. I pray it will help strengthen the faith of many. God bless you.
Yours in Christ,

I like what you said esp “This relationship [with God] will not make our problems disappear. but God will supply the strength to endure whatever we face in our lives“. Amen to that

Also, Karma could remind one of the theology Elifaz, a friend of Job, talked about. In fact, Bildad and Sofar, who were his other friends, also had an understanding like this. An idea that a just world could only be so, if “what comes around goes around”. So the idea is in the bible, but it is false, God himself says it in the end of the book.
