    Job is a good example of karma being false a lie. Same with the man born blind that Jesus heals.

    Do you not believe you reap what you sow?

    That's karma dude.

    It could also just be 'reaping what you sow' and not karma per se. If karma is true why do bad things happen to good people?

    Because karma operates between incarnations, not just the current life.

    Job did nothing wrong but suffered anyhow.

    Job is just a fictional character in a book. What's your point?

    He was close to the time of Abraham. So they could have maybe even known each other?

    Also why didn't God use Job instead of Abraham?

    God almost gave up on the Jews and used Moses but he pleaded for them.

    Karma is simply cause-effect, it is true, and it must be conceived within the context of the philosophy that came up with this concept (and there are many different traditions as regards this matter). It is graspable beyond conceptualization;
    Why do bad things happen to good people? Methinks that since “good” and “evil” are ultimately non-existent, “bad” things can and do happen to “good” entities all the time😵

    So the action of rape is not evil?

    Rape is a crime and must be punished severely 😵

    Rape is evil? Yes or No?

    Why should it be severely punished if it is not evil?
