I would like to have the reference you recall also. I cannot think of it either.
However: Karma touches everything. It is an aspect of the ABSOLUTE. Under its reign Universes come and go. The imperishable MONADS that we are at core are also unalienable aspects (parts) of the ABSOLUTE. Are we not really speaking of "fields of force" on planes quite different from our merely physical. What is the MONAD ?
I just posted to BN a small essay on the first moments of the resumption of evolution and compared it (at Reed's request) with the 3 "Qualities" or "Gunas" as described in the BHAGAVAD GITA.
Does this in any way deal with your observation ? Perhaps not directly.

I imagine you were challenging the Christian Church view here. Namely, that we can live an immoral life year after year and then have our sins absolved by God's forgiveness at the last minute, just before death.
How very convenient!
I can't find the reference at the moment, but I am sure that both HPB and Subba Row both state that Nirvana cannot be reached through Karma - because it is beyond the realm of cause and effect. Have you come across this?
