Read an article on why God allows evil. The writer subscribes this to the sins that we commit. I do not subscribe to this view. If this is the reason, then why do children suffer? A couple of days back two children, a boy(7) and girl (11) - his sister - were kidnapped. The girl was raped and both the children were murdered - the boy was drowned. This is not the only incident of its kind. Some time back some small children who were watching a movie in China were burnt to death. What were their sins?
This brings us to the question of "karma". You suffer for the sins committed in your past life and as such there seems to be some truth in the concept of rebirth. The Christians say there is no rebirth. Is this concept correct? Or is the concept of rebirth subscribed to by the Hindus correct?
