Always beware the diabolical, increasingly pervasive doctrines of antiChrist . . . as they arrive in cloaks of light; ie., the cruel, pitiless theory of the "law of karma" . . . and its wicked stepchild "the law of attraction". . . .
As with all of the worst devilish doctrines, a large degree of truth is included which lures the unsuspecting in--but the devil is in the details. . . . In the details of that portion which is a lie. . . .
There is no room for grace or, worse yet, GOD'S SOVEREIGNTY . . . in a universe ruled by the "law of karma"
According to "New Age"/occultic/Eastern mystical theory . . . those victims of the terror attack who were blown apart or had their faces torn off by blasting nails . . . well, they deserved it. They must have done something bad in a previous life and are only getting the results of their karmic debt. It's actually a "good" thing, in a way, that it happened. . . .
In fact, don't try to alleviate the suffering, starving, tortured children in this or that "3rd world" country or totalitarian police state. Let them suffer. It's "good" they are suffering. They are just paying off their karmic obligations from some previous life and if you intervene you will be short-changing them. In fact, why not help their suffering along so that they can get that much closer to evolving to the next rung in their spiritual progression! Don't mess up their "ascension"!. . .
Surely there is no room for compassion. Indeed, the "compassionate" thing to do, under "laws of karma" is to let their suffering run its course!
And there can be no place for grace--especially for God's grace. For, in the eyes of the "love and light" "New Ager", the universe is but a machine of sorts--a mechanistic system of law, where, if you do enough "good" and somehow resist doing "bad", by "law" . . . you will eventually attain "God consciousness"! A sovereign God has nothing to do with it. It's all about YOU. YOU are the God of your reality just learning how to follow hidden "spiritual" laws. Similarly, if you only think of "positive" things and what you want from life, from the "machine" (via using the so-called "law of attraction) . . . you can WISH your way to getting everything you ever wanted!
In the doctrines of demons . . . there is no room for compassion, for grace . . . for perseverance and submission in suffering, and especially no room for a Sovereign God who is actually in control of everything. . . .
No, on the contrary, SELF WILL is the god of demonic doctrine and all their is room for. . . .
Yes, there is a degree of "reaping and sowing", which produces various results, oftentimes which can be relied upon or expected. But it never abrogates or trumps God's will, or His utter freedom to bestow mercy or grace where He sees fit REGARDLESS of good or bad works.
Obedience to His law is indeed crucial . . . and only the perfect can enter heaven; but it is a lie from the depths of Hell to suggest that any (fallen) creature is even ABLE to obey God's law perfectly. Only the perfect God can (and did) do that. And then, God's gracious mercy makes it so that we, who actually can do NO good, get to live (forever) as though we HAD obeyed, and continue to obey, perfectly! Hence our deep gratitude, awe and worship of the Supreme Being, God--the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
When looked at more closely, with logic and love of truth . . . New Age or occult or mystical doctrines like the "law of karma" . . . are despicable, diabolical, cruel, deadly and a viscous lie straight from antichrist, from the devil himself. . . .
