Karma is a Buddhist concept linked to reincarnation, which the Bible rejects. The closest the Bible comes to "what goes around comes around" is Galatians 6:7 KJV "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." Christianity teaches that the old way (before Christ) was to meet sin with punishment. Jesus' death and resurrection made a new covenant of forgiveness for all sin. There is no curse upon one who sins. However, there are natural consequences to our actions that have nothing to do with punishment or religion or karma. That is what the verse is saying. If a man makes his money by robbing banks and gets shot in the process, is that a punishment, karma or the natural consequences of his actions?
"Karma" is not Scriptual! However, if referring to "cause and effect," (man-made term) I like the Scripture that Mother used (Galatians 6:7), but most importantly if we disobey (cause) then Galatians 1:7-9 says "...but there are some that trouble you, and would PERVERT the "Gospel of Christ. (v8) But though we (Apostles), or AN ANGEL FROM HEAVEN, preach ANY OTHER GOSPEL unto you than that which we (Apostles) have preached unto you, LET HIM BE ACCURSED. (v9) As we SAID BEFORE, so say I AGAIN, If any man preach ANY OTHER Gospel unto you than that ye have received, LET HIM BE ACCURSED" (effect)!
