Consequences?

I know what the consequences are in my faith if you break Yahweh's laws. What are the consequences of your choice of faith and how do they teach anyone anything in your opinion? If you say that people deal with consequences in this life, how about the people who never get caught? What consequences do they face? Blessings..

  • I dont focus on the consequences of sin but on His grace and redemption. Sure there are consequences but it is how we deal with and overcome that is more important in my faith. God sees all... including the ones not caught. Forgiveness and His Love will prevail to those who ask for it.

  • Within my faith, we are bound by human and moral law... we are here to learn, experience etc for each lifetime we are here... we take responsibility for our actions ..... and there is no need for forgiveness on the gods part, as long as we are regretful for what ever wrong we have committed.... because, in our next life, we have those mistakes learned and we will not make them again.

  • What are the consequences of your choice of faith?

    Legal action, living with their choices, payback from those they might have spurned along the way.

    how do they teach anyone anything in your opinion?

    Well they have to deal with the consequences of their actions.

    For minor infractions however, let's say our kids tell a lie, we teach them about empathy. How they would feel if someone did the same thing to them, and how they wouldn't like it and therefore they shouldn't do it to others and how the results if they do choose to carry forth with a negative action will have negative and often far worse consequences.

  • I believe in a combination of The Law Of Attraction, Karma & The Law of Three... I see them as one in the same... Whatever we do, be it good or bad, is returned to us. Negative actions result in negative results People are always held accountable, whether they are "caught" or not - you can't hide from the fates, they know what you did, and they'll make sure you pay, one way or another.

  • In my faith, payback is not always seen here or in this lifetime. For those who make mistakes, they will be punished with Karma. Wether that be in this lifetime or another, that's not the point. Karma always pays back what is put out. It is not up to me, or you, how everyone is pays for their actions. That is up to them and the Gods.

  • Karma is a terrible thing to believe, to say the least. It is saying that everyone born with disabitlies (or acquires a disability) deserves it as punishment for something they did in this life or in a past life.

    As opposed to having people born with disabilities in order to "Test their faith in the Lord to see if they turn to him in their times of need becasue God never gives them more than they can handle". Yeah, that doesn't sound like a great thing to believe either. It makes it sound like a big malicious joke.

    It isn't time yet for when there will be no more death or mourning or cying or pain. But there will be a time! For those who belong to the Lord.
