Karma versus Christianity
All other religious systems say that "what goes around, comes around" and "you get what you deserve." Christian faith says that all have sinned and fallen short of being human.
But those who turn from sin and trust in Jesus Christ as their God become beneficiaries of what He did for us on the cross, where He took the punishment we deserve for sin.
Jesus then rose from the dead so that all who repent and believe in Him have life with God...even though we don't deserve. That is truly amazing grace!
We are saved by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone.
As an old song put it of grace, "When we don't get what we deserve, that's a real good thing."
