Call it Karma if You Want

        This is instigated by a conversation I had with my sister-in-law, Megan, at Bible Study.  See I used the word “Karma” and she was like “You talk about that kind of thing a lot. Like, you’ve mentioned the Dali Lama a few times.”  She’s right, I have.  I responded with, “Well, I do follow HHDL on Twitter.  But getting what you deserve is not a singularly Hindu principal; the Bible has “you reap what you so” and pretty much everyone has heard “what goes around comes around.””  We discussed the concept and Eastern religions.  I ended my part with “I believe that each and every person will be rewarded and punished based on their decisions and actions either in this life or the next; the greatest of which is your decision of accepting Jesus as The Savior.”  We then got back to 1st John.

        Here is the definition of Karma ( “ action, seen as bringing upon oneself inevitable results, good or bad, either in this life or in a reincarnation”.  I do not believe in reincarnation, I do believe in an afterlife.

        I just find one word to describe the concept of “you reap what you sow” to be very handy.

    It’s possible that even though you don’t believe in Reincarnation it believes in you. If you would like I have some good posts on my blog that makes it pretty clear. You may be on the fence because your language says that we don’t get a WASH, we don’t get a BYE. Somehow we are accountable. Anyway it’s at:

    It’s actually a blog about SiritualThemes. Even some of the other stuff you might find interesting. Thanks again.
