When studying about the law of cause and effect (Karma Law), I found these verses.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.
Hadith Book 39
Chapter 15: None would attain salvation because of his deeds but it is through Lord’s mercy (that he would attain that).
Reading them at a glance, I would think that no matter what my thought-word-action is, there will be no direct consequences to it. Good or bad, it will not be counted, only God’s grace or mercy, that will decide the consequences. But this understanding contradicts the ultimate law of cause and effect.
So, what do those verses truly mean, in relation to Karma Law?
Kindly enlighten, thanks.
