Consequence [of sinful activity]

Consequence: the effect, result, or outcome of something occurring earlier sinful: characterized by, guilty of, or full of sin; wicked activity: a specific deed, action, function, or sphere of action

Hinduism If a human being is engaged in sinful, irreligious activities, either because of bad association or because of his failure to control his senses, then such a person will certainly develop a personality full of material desires. He thus becomes miserly toward others, greedy and always anxious to exploit the bodies of women. When the mind is so polluted one becomes violent and aggressive and without the authority of Vedic injunctions slaughters innocent animals for sense gratification. Worshiping ghosts and spirits, the bewildered person falls fully into the grip of unauthorized activities and thus goes to hell, where he receives a material body infected by the darkest modes of nature. In such a degraded body, he unfortunately continues to perform inauspicious activities that greatly increase his future unhappiness, and therefore he again accepts a similar material body. What possible happiness can there be for one who engages in activities inevitably terminating in death? (Shreemad Bhagavatam 11:10:27-29)

Jainism The careless (commit sins) by thoughts, words, and acts, with regard to this and the next world, both (by doing the act themselves and by making others do it). A cruel man does cruel acts and is thereby involved in other cruelties; but sinful undertakings will in the end bring about misery. Sinners, subject to love and hate and doing wrong, acquire Karma arising from passions and commit many sins. (JJaina Sutras, Part II by Hermann Jacobi [1895], Eighth Lecture )
