The one common theme that all religions have in common, the heavy weight of the freight train of fury arrayed against injustice, the one prevailing theme in the universe, the fear that haunts the sleep of evildoers.

Karma- Whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap, what goes around comes around, an eye for an eye, I will repay says the Lord;

Karma, the one prevailing truth: Sin requires judgment.

The Karma of Judgment is the one constant prevailing theme in all of religion and also our predicament along with every man and woman born.

Pilot, the governor with a clear understanding of karma, in fear and cowardice, made an outward attempt at self-preservation by asking for a basin of water, washed his hands in full view of the world, absolving himself of any association.

When he did this, a whole Jewish nation represented by a few in history stood up and said: “we will take the karma, us and our children”.

But.

One man, alone on the tracks, on the darkest day in history, stood down that freight train of fury.

In this one act of incredible karma, God, in the man Jesus, on a wooden cross all alone, chose to become the lightning rod for karma… the full fury of the wrath due to unrighteousness. He stood up against all injustice for all time, absolving for all time, all of humanity, of any guilt by association.

In His one courageous act of Love, He stood using his own body as the buffer. In this sacrificial act, not only was his own body decimated but he dealt a decimating blow to the full weight of judgment due every man and woman born and unborn for all of eternity. Sin and all its freight train of righteous karma were destroyed in this one cataclysmic stand of incredible Love.

As He stood absorbing the full impact of judgment and fury, He looked out at His accusers and breathed forgiveness….and in so doing authorized us as righteous sons and daughters to do the same. Not only was sin dealt a destructive death blow but you and I became the Authorized Version for obliterating through mercy and grace on this earth any leftover karma

How sweet is that…no more karma against us or through us?

You and I as believers are no longer instruments of karma! Instead, you and I have become His Authorized Representatives to partner with Him in acts of love, mercy, and grace in an orphaned and broken world.

Love won on the cross. Now through the cross, you and I have become love. That is who we are! Love now wins through you and me. Forgiveness reigns and karma stands on its head.

Unraveling The Universe

When it came to a particular chapter in Prone To Love, one of my pastor friends raised an alarm regarding my thoughts about the sovereignty of God. I had written an entire chapter under the title, “God Is Not In Control” and that thought bothered him. He felt it was an incredibly flawed idea. He was also concerned it would cause distress and confusion in my reader. He suggested that promoting the idea that God is not in control would be the equivalent of “pulling the string that unravels the universe.”

I Was Born to Do This

Then we walked down the streets of JT Williams, a struggling community, to pick up twenty or so sweet kids. We took them to their local school parking lot, gave them a snack, told a Bible story, played games, and worked on a craft together. I loved it.
