If your bad actions in previous incarnations are a result of God's Will, then how will you ever atone for those actions? You will only be able to atone for them if its God's Will. Then I will never be able to atone for them. Isn't this an escapist route to not take responsibility for our actions?

"In one person, You are arrogant and proud, and in another, You are meek and humble. In one person, You are all by Yourself, and in another, You are poor. In one person, you are a Pandit, a religious scholar and a preacher, and in another, You are just a fool. In one person, You grab hold of everything, and in another, You accept nothing. What can the poor wooden puppet do? The Master Puppeteer knows everything. As the Puppeteer dresses the puppet, so is the role the puppet plays." (ANG 206)

In each incarnation we are presented with the opportunities to pay our karmas. It is our decision whether or not to take each of these opportunities. Many miss them because they do not see the opportunity or understand it. This is all Lila - God's play.
