No Karma

Job's friends believed in a Karma and God rebuked them
Some Christians don't recognize it, but they've adopted a philosophy I call "Christian Karma."

Instead of realizing that bad things often happen to good people (e.g. Joseph, Apostle Paul), and good things often happen to bad people, they feel that every problem is connected to a sin.

Like Job's Friends they think people somehow deserve their problems.

This belief isn't Scriptural and it adds an unfair burden to the person who is already suffering. It's one thing when sin is clearly linked to a problem (e.g. an alcoholic gets Cirrhosis or a promiscuous teen gets pregnant). But judging people when there's no clear link is "Christian Karma."

In John 9:2-3, the disciples thought sickness was always related to sin and Jesus corrected them. In Luke 13:1-5, Jesus said those killed in a political massacre and fallen tower were no more deserving than those who survived.

Galatians 6:7-8 says a man reaps what he sows. But unlike Karma, God doesn't promise justice here on earth (2 Thessalonians 1:6-7), and He doesn't promise a carefree life for those who are righteous (John 16:33). 

Let's be fully Christian and quit mixing Hinduism with Christianity (Colossians 2:8).
