Jesus Christ brought the good news (the gospel) that there was a higher law than the law of Karma–and that that law transcends the law of Karma. It is the law of grace, or forgiveness. It is the law which frees man from the law of cause and effect–the law of consequence. ‘Under grace, and not under law.’
We are told that on this plane, man reaps where he has not sown; the gifts of God are simply poured out upon him. ‘All that the Kingdom affords is his.’ This continued state of bliss awaits the man who has overcome the race (or world) thought.
In the world thought there is tribulation, but Jesus Christ said: ‘Be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.’ …
Man would no longer throw off his body in death, it would be transformed into the ‘body electric,’ sung by Walt Whitman, for Christianity is founded upon the forgiveness of sins and ‘an empty tomb.’

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said,
“I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness,
but will have the light of life.”
John 8:12, New International Version of the Bible
