You can believe in whatever works for you. We are all on our own personal journeys in life and what we discover and / or believe in may work for us and not you and vice versa....the approval of others is not needed especially if you feel strongly about whatever it is you believe in. If you're a Christian that also believes in Karma...that's your choice.
Love your neighbour and do unto others as you would have done to you matches
In a sense..."What a man sows, that he will reap."
There are many aspects of Christian dogma that ring of a karmic understanding as to how the universe works. Not because Karma usurps God, but because God is just and He also set certain Karmic laws into motion.
Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. <br />
Some philosophies call it<br />
Cause and effect<br />
Ying Yang<br />
Bad Karma <br />
Isaac Newton said; For every postive reaction there is a negative reaction.<br />
The question hear lies in Christianity, Do you believe in man? Follow them!<br />
Do you believe in Budha and His sayings? then follow Him!<br />
Do you believe in Chineese philosophy? then follow them!<br />
21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word. <br />
15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. <br />
16 And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake the LORD, to serve other gods; <br />
19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: <br />
As Christians we must learn the sayings by verbatim, not changing nor comparing them to other religions or philosophies.<br />
The answer is a SOLID, NO!
Christian means "Christlike". So I ask you, "What would Jesus do?"
God is not mocked, we reap what we sow and no one else can reap it for us. I think that's pretty close to the general idea of karma.
"For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind" ... -- Hosea 8:7
im a christian and i dont belive in karma but if you do something wrong to someone God will deal with you cause whe know whats right from wrong now so whe have to be good to people and if they do us wrong he also takes care of them i woulnt call it karma its all God is in control
I know Christains that went to Jewish holidays! Anything is possible. I have known someone to go to Budist meetings and was a Quaker.<br />
Anything is a addition to the Crhistian religion, and is accepted is my thinking.
Oh I know what goes around comes around.
was jesus christ a christian !! <br />
i don't think he was , maybe he had a one to one relationship with god . <br />
so , if any one wants to be with god . just try talking to god .
Isn't their word for it "Hell?"
Read the Proverbs.
You do mean Galatians?!?
