How can the law of karma work for instance, when the Nazi's tortured and murdered the Jews. Some Nazi's have not been brought to justice to this day, let alone an eye for an eye, in exact measure; but look what is happening in Kosovo .... all things are being repeated, the labor camps, the starvation, the genocide, only this time (I bet!), the former victims are more than likely the perpetrators and vice versa, Of course I don't know this, but the conditions are ripe for the "law" to be fulfilled.
No matter how justified we may be to "strike back," to do so puts one on the bad side of the law of karma, as Jesus said "Father forgive them for they know not what they do." and "turn the other cheek." "Vengance is mine sayeth the Lord, I will repay." "Love your enemys" "do good to those who hate you."
Why did the Jew's become victims of the Nazi's in the first place? Could they have been Christians during the Crusades? Read Mt.5:18-48, Jesus again makes it plain that we must be quite perfect to enter into the kingdom of Heaven, could a loving Father expect his children to gain this kind of perfection in one lifetime?
Mt.7:1-6 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2. For with what judgement ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you AGAIN.
God's justice is perfect, we get exactly what we deserve, but what then did Christ's death on the cross accomplish?? Jesus said that he came to fulfill the law, what law, if not the law of karma. (God's Law!) Matt 5:18 Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no way pass from the LAW, till all be fulfilled." "I am the way. the truth, the life, no man cometh unto the Father except by means of me:" We follow the same way as Jesus, when we treat our fellow mankind as Jesus did, Jesus showed us the way.
Did Jesus reincarnate?? The Bible strongly hints that Jesus was Adam in the Garden of Eden. The first Adam (means man) brought sin into the world, and the last Adam will take sin out of the world.
Jesus said Mt.22:32 "I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living." and in Mt.23:36 "Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation." (Unless you accept reincarnation, This Generation passed away a long time ago.) and again in Mt. 24:34.
Job 1:2 Job has 7 sons, and 3 daughters. A servant tells Job that his children were all dining at one house when the roof collapsed killing all of them, ...Job say's "Naked came I out of my mothers womb, and naked shall I return thither. Now in Job 42:13-14 Job AGAIN gets 7 sons and three daughters, as a blessing from the Lord. Did the same children reincarnate to Job, if they were different children, no "other" children could have replaced the lost children.
The more I read the Bible, the more of reincarnation makes sence and enables the Bible to show the Love of God.
"For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: In returning and rest shall ye be saved;" Isaiah 30:15 "To him that overcometh, will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go out no more. Rev 3:12

There is no death! The stars go down
To rise upon some other shore,
And bright in Heaven's jeweled crown
They shine for evermore.
There is no death! The dust we tread
Shall change beneath the summer showers
To golden grain, or mellow fruit,
Or rainbow-tinted flowers.
And ever near us,though unseen,
The dear immortal spirits tread;
For all the boundless universe
Is life--there are no dead!
~John Luckey McCreery~
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? ...But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 cor. 15:55-57
Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The soul that rises with us, our life's Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting.
And cometh from afar;
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter darkness,
But trailing clouds of glory, do we come
From God, who is our home.
