Seek An End To Suffering

According to some Buddhist teachings, believing in rebirth is essential to live an ethical life. Otherwise, if there is no fear of karmic consequences in future, what keeps people from doing wrong things and getting into debts? This argument is sad and invalid, because it states that fear of a punishment is the only thing that prevents us from the evil.

Managing Relationships

Some Buddhist teachers insist that believing in rebirth is necessary for living an ethical life. Their concern is that if there is no fear of karmic repercussions in future lifetimes, what keeps hospice patients, for example, from overcharging their credit cards? I find this argument as sad as the argument that without a belief in God people would likewise be unethical.
