Karma: Real or Fake?

I am sure you have heard of karma. Karma simply posits that everyone will be rewarded in this world or the world to come with the same actions-good or bad they gave others. There is a popular Latin expression “caveat emptor”-meaning “buyers beware”.  Most religions: Christianity, Hinduism and Buddhism teach this theosophy. When you go to an auction, you will see cars with the sign “buy as is”. That is to make sure the buyer assumes the responsibility of what they are buying because the goods may be defective.  Yet, many people buy goods that come to hunt them later because they say in their hearts “aut viam inveniam aut faciam”, meaning; “I will either find a way or make one”. Indeed, many people engage in evil even though they know that the evil that human beings do will live with them and after them. I am going to cite you a few modern and recent examples so that as you engage in evil, you will know that evil is so faithful that it never sleeps outside. It will always come back home. Many people burst the dam to sweep the neighbor’s house, but they forget that theirs is on the path of the water.  If you read this story, " Mister Rufus," you will see Karma all over the place. 
Julia Aggippina killed Claudius to enthrone his adopted son. He too will later kill his mother for reminding him that without her, he would not have had the throne. 
When Ronald Regan was voted president, the new president immediately cut funding for the National Institute of Mental Health which was researching dementia later called Alzheimer. Although he will later restore the funding, he was killed by Alzheimer. Good and evil are like rain; they fall on everyone’s house who lives in that area.  
Oswald Harvey killed President Kennedy and while still in custody, he was shot himself by Jack Ruby. The latter was rushed to the same hospital that President Kennedy was rushed to, but 48 hours later, he died. [1]  If you seize someone’s husband, another lady will do same. If no one does it, nature has a way of retribution, at times with unhappiness the whole marriage long.
No one plants apples to reap mangoes, for you will only reap what you sowed. If I ended here without giving you three modern examples, then this article will be incomplete.
Ibrahim Coulibaly was the notorious Ivory Coast serial coup plotter who was the ex-bodyguard of Allassane Quattara. In 1999, he led a coup that reinstalled Robert Guei as president. In 2002, he led a failed coup against Laurent Gbagbo, and in 2004, he fled into exile. He resurfaced in 2011 and joined the Quattara rebels in collusion and connivance with the UNO and French forces to oust Laurent Gabgbo- the constitutionally elected president of Ivory Coast. In April 27,2011 after refusing to disarm to the Quattara rebels, he was gunned down by Guillaume Soro’s men to fulfill Jesus words “ for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword” (Mt 26:52).
Another person who seems to have the boomerang effect of evil is Blaise Compaore. As I write right now his country is being set ablaze. Because he is the western myrmidon and peon, the western media has refused to inform their people. Compaore came to power on October 15, 1987 after killing his best friend: Sankara, the then president. He will help to destabilize the entire region on the orders of his master, France. His footprints were on the Congo civil war, Rwandan genocide, Liberia and Sierra Leonean wars and now Ivory Coast. But since evil is faithful, the police and army are rioting now in his country and the populace is marching for him to go, and go he will! He is now living in exile. 
Another young monster has been Jonathan Badluck or Goodluck.  He helped to destabilize Ivory Cost and kidnapped a legitimate constitutionally elected president. Immediately after his election as the president of Nigeria, more than 1000 Nigerians were killed, and more than  65 churches were burnt. Until he left power, he was fighting Boko Haram. 
The Bible says “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets” (Mt 7:12). Whatever evil you are sowing in people’s lives, you will reap it too. If you swindle from someone, someone too will swindle from you or your family. Evil never leaves its source. If you cheat on God (premarital sex), no matter who you marry, the man will cheat on you too unless you repent of your sin. If you cheat someone, another person too will cheat you. Go ahead and keep up with your evil; it will soon catch up with you too. Therefore, if you do not want evil to visit you, do not do evil to anyone. Some people do evil like racism but because they are not caught, they think that they have gone free. Unfortunately, nature has visited them with some terrible sicknesses and calamities that they cannot understand why them.
Until then, Karma exists!
