I was wondering if helping others who are suffering prevents them from receiving their karmic dues.
For example, if Person X caused great suffering to others, then according Buddhism, his Karma will come back to haunt him in the same life or a next life. Now suppose, he does suffer in another future life but a Good Samaritan rescues him before all his karmic debts are paid. The Good Samaritan improves his karma account with the good deed but he has still rescued someone who still has a debt to pay to society.
How can one justify helping others in this case? I'm not trying to find fault with Buddhism.
