Freedom. Truth. Marriage.

My thoughts on these things. Feel free to leave feedback.

Is karma Biblical?

 

Another br220px-It_Shoots_Further_Than_He_Dreamseak from the “Stuff we Say” series. Though in a way, it’s not. We’ve often said things that agree with the idea of karma. Karma, in our Western culture basically means “What goes around, comes around.” (The actual principle of karma in the Hindu beliefs where it originates is actually more complex.) While the Bible doesn’t directly say “What goes around, comes around,” there are two verses that speak to that principle

Obadiah 1:15 “For the Day of the Lord is near, against all the nations. As you have done, so it will be done to you; what you deserve will return on your own head.”

Galatians 6:7 “Don’t be deceived: God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows he will also reap,”

Truth takeaway: While not actually called “karma” in the Bible, the concept is the same.

Freedom takeaway: When we’re hurt by someone else or see injustice done we want them to pay and pay dearly. These verses are a promise from God that He will deliver what is deserved.
