Some people say, “When you do an act of kindness, it’s good Karma!” If someone does something horrible, then you hear, “Wait until his Karma catches up to him!”
We’ve all heard of people saying there’s Karma in every action we take. The definition of this Buddhist and Hindu belief is that a person’s actions in this life or previous existence is a deciding factor in where a person will end up in the next life.
- Although I don’t agree on the belief of a previous life or recycling into the next, I do believe that a person’s action will, in fact, be the deciding factor of where they spend eternity. You notice I said action and not actions?
The Word of God makes it indisputable in Hebrews chapter 29 verse 27 that it is appointed for a person to die once and then God’s judgment will be passed.
Here’s where the total opposite belief of what Karma is, comes in:
As human beings, we can never obtain a perfect balance for our next life on our own. We are never going to be good enough to achieve perfection. Only God, the Creator of the universe is perfect.
He is the only One that can judge us by His standards. And through the eternal measures of the heavens, we always fall short.
Here is where we have the chance to make destiny ours. We can, in fact, receive perfection. But here’s the catch, it’s not by our own actions.
It is by the time action that Jesus the Savior of the world, who is also the Son of God in the Trinity. He came and lived a perfect life. We can’t fathom this because we can’t live this kind of perfect life.
Some like the Buddha, Francis of Assisi, and Mother Theresa of Calcutta, tried their best to lead good lives. Notice I said good and not perfect?
They through their own actions could never be good enough for their efforts to cancel out their sins.
All people have sinned and are in need of saving grace that is only given through Jesus. All people including Buddha, Mother Theresa, and all the other “beatified” human beings who have passed from this life into the next have died and were buried. None came back to life, except One.
People’s actions will not be good enough for them to enter into God’s heavenly Kingdom on their own accord. Before you tell me that this is extremely harsh to say, I am not the one saying it. The Word of God is clear on this. I wish I could say otherwise but then I would be making myself God and trust me, I am and will always fall short on that measure.
Instead of getting angry or depressed because you realized that you can’t make it into heaven on your own, why not ask the One that can help you. He is the only One that has died, been buried and risen from the dead. His name is Jesus the One they called the Carpenter, The Nazarene, The Way, the Truth, and The Life.
- Get to know Him, I promise you will not regret it.
Below are reference links to most of what I mentioned here. Do your own homework and make the right decision.
- Once you make a decision to follow Jesus, he will never leave you! Nothing will be able to separate you from His love.
- Don’t leave it up to your very own “Karma” to find out too late…
No human being is righteous in God’s eyes:
Jesus is sinless:
Christ came to save us:
He is the Only One that can save us:
Ask Him to be your Savior:
Welcome to the Family of God:
