Chicken Charlie BS: What is this stuff - Karma? (57* d) RE: BS: What is this stuff - Karma? 16 Aug 01


As a good Augustinian, let me say that life is a crap-shoot. The explanation within Christian theology is that if the good were always rewarded and evil punished in this world, people would do good for the reward (wrong motive) not because of their love for their fellow creatures or for God (right motive). If you want an Augustinian view divorced from Christianity, that's easy: nobody's keeping score, so don't think yourself into a funk by trying to figure out what you did wrong. All you did wrong is to think you did something wrong. Get over it.

I'm too lazy to search the whole thread, so if somebody already said, "My karma ran over your dogma," then disregard this paragraph, which is not Augustinian, just old.
