Exposing the “Third and Fourth Generation” Lie

It is the aim of Lamb's Harbinger to bring good news to the afflicted/poor, to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty for the captives and freedom for the imprisoned, & that now is the time of God's gracious favor for all to accept (Is. 61).

No Karma Here, Just Grace

"There is no karma to Christianity."  I have received criticism from other Christians for making that statement before. My accuser's reply was, "What about God and how he makes you reap what you sow? Isn't that in the Bible? It's all the same thing." But, the Buddhist definition of karma is far different from the biblical Christian's …
