Karma, a Christian concept?
When Christ was crucified, he did so to forgive all of Humanity’s sins, past present and future. If you think of sin on Vice and Virtue measurement. Reset the count to an even 0-0. This is basically Karma, on a scale of measuring all of Humanity. This act even attoned for Original Sin, the moment that Eve was persauded by the Serpent. So, after the Cruxifiction, Humans were no longer born with the weight of Original Sin, and thus their actions alone would be judged. Be we are not to Judge.
Today, when we pray or ask for Forgiveness, we do so not because God expects us to, but because a Godly man would spend time in introspection and mediation on his actions. Asking for Forgiveness forces us to deal with our “demons” mentally. Forgiveness is only given to the Repentant. If a person does not repent, or feel guilt, it is because it was either never necessary, or because they’ve yet to realize the consequences of their actions.
This, Self-Awareness, Self-Examination, is what makes us Human. It’s what makes every human redeemable. Sin exists now because of Free Will, and lack of proper understanding of Cause and Effect. There are so many so opposed to Science that they cannot see the gifts it gives us. Every new discovery and invention helps us understand each other a little more. And that’s All Jesus Christ ever asked of us.
