You used the word MAY. It already renders your example moot as to Karma.
yes!
Meaning, Karma may not occur or one can escape it if he is lucky. But mostly it usually occurs and one most times do not luckily escape it

And did you just say you'll become a new creature and the former actions are now rendered invalid?
yes!
according to the scripture in the bible i quoted, it is rendered invalid to the dead. But so long one is alife, infact you will have to face the consequences of the sins another person committed.

In society, depends on the extent of the degradable action else, jail terms await you if you're ever found out.

To be candid, any so-called born again should own up and report himself to the necessary authorities and see if the actions of the past creature will affect the new creature... shocked

Ah, if you mean when someone dies, it applies to everyone, Christian or not. Death ends it all. Only very few gets recycled with same elements.
christians do not believe that death ends it all, and that's a benefit

What does this ancestor even know about your belief systems? Since my disillusionment, I've never bothered to look back.

According to Merriam-webster, the word "Karma" was first used in 1827 by Buddhists and Hinduists whio described an ethical subjected principle that says "you reap what you sow ".
They held that there is a force generated by a person's actions which has ethical consequences to determine the nature of the person's next existence(even up to the person's after-life).

Certainly, going by human natural experiences, this ethical principle called Karma has been proven valid and is responsible for the many fortunes and misfortunes we go through today in our lives.
For instance, a man who send his child to school(formally or informally) may end up having the child becoming wealthy and knowledgeable, and the one who refuses to send his child to school may have the child battling poverty in the future and put the blame to some witches and wizards in village.

But what does the bible say about Karma, do Christians believe that this principle still have effect to their after-life even after they die?

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

This also suggest that the old creature died away the day you died, and you are now a new being not having the sins of your past life inputed in you.

Paul says in Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I NOW live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Obviously,according these scriptures if Karma is anything to go by, it ends abruptly the day you die as a Christian, but the effects thereafter lives on even up to generations

Karma exists but it's not what religion is teaching. It means that people don't actually understand what it is.

Do you hear those mass shooting in Europe or America?
Those are descendants of those who murdered innocent people hundreds of years ago to take over land that doesn't belong to them. And though it happened hundreds or thousands of years ago but parents already passed the traits of mudderers to their children. Their children would continue to be blood thirsty until they free, redeem or save themselves.

This includes those Africans you see today selling their children. Those are descendants of those that participated in slave trade. Their descendants are doomed to want to sell or enslave another human being.

Yes, you shall reap what you sow.

Unfortunately, if such a descendant comes from a wealthy family, they'll oppress people with their wealth. And if they're politician and leaders, they'll sell you out and take money and put inside their pockets. Their bloodline would continue that way down the line, until they free, save, redeem themselves.

By the way, that's the true context for "you shall reap what you sow" and also being "saved" as understood by the ancients but which has unfortunately been misunderstood and bastardized by religions.

Nobody can redeem or save you but yourself.

Please, there's God. Please,do any menial jobs at least to feed yourself and pray to God. A lot of people are also passing through a lot too. I know of a friend who was sacked in a bank and couldn't get any meaningful thing for ten years. Very depressed but hoping in God. Today he's is over three years in US doing great. Everyone has his time to move. Sometimes a car get stuck in a mud but will later move either being removed or find it's way out. Believe in God Almighty.
Where is the menial job

Karma is real, but not as it's understood or described in most rellgion.

Karma simply means the consequences,. not punishment, arising. from one's physical and mental activity.

There's no higher power or gods that dole out karma to anyone.

Everyone is responsible for his or her karma.
You reap what you sow ,whether good or bad

Nobody can take away one's karma or bear it for you. Religious people are misled into thinking another person can take away their sin or karma. It's not true, but a lie used for converting people

If you do something you experience the consequences yourself, if you don't do anything you also suffer the consequences if not doing anything yourself.

If you dwell on negative thoughts all the time, it won't be long before depression sets in. On the other hand,If you dwell on positive thoughts all the time,you also reap the benefits in the form of good mood, or happy feelings.

If you eat garlic and onions for some days and don't brush your mouth, the consequence is people not wanting to get close to you. If you deliberately offend another person all the time, it won't be long before the person start resenting you. You reap friendship or positive response when you do good to others.

The, depression, good mood, avoidance, friendship, and resentment are all karmic consequences that has come from some actions taken in the past. This is how karma works. It's not punishment from any God

However, most people only focus on the negative aspect of karma, without being aware that people also reap the good they have sown too, which helps to balance out bad karma and make it possible they don't get overwhelmed by it.

Nobody is completely bad and no one is completely good. The politicians some people use as excuse to dismiss the principle of karma are people who may have sown positive karma, which helps to balance out their negative karma. Too much of everything is bad. That's what they say.

Those who struggle to see the connection between the things they do and the consequences that naturally follow are for the most part operating from a very low level of awareness. They're not fully conscious of what's going on around them, hence they dismiss the principle of karma.

Karma is a fact of life.

You forgot to state how king David reaped wat he sew. Or u don’t remember wat his son did to him because of wat he did to another man’s wife? God forgave him but he reaped it still. Karma is so so real. Even around us, we see it all the time. God may not count or hold that sin against u after u repent but u still reap it on earth here most times.

God cannot punish people for being hand working, doesn't matter whether they are good or evil because the reward for hard work is riches and not poverty.
The holy scripture say: whatever a man soweth that shall he reap.
