Do you agree with Henry Ford, that reincarnation is more exciting than heaven?

How did he reconcile his belief in reincarnation with his belief in christianity?
I personally like the idea of eternal “sleep”.

I would actually prefer to be reincarnated and to have the ability to learn from past lives.
I do not think this happens but it would be an interesting concept

Nate

I think….it would suck. Would you have former memories? Would you still be human?
I mean heck you could end up as a fly die in a minute and who knows if you’d keep reliving reincarnation.
But i believe in God and the Heaven is gona kick some serious butt.

Irish South African

Well, it sounds more exciting, yes. I just don’t believe in either.

Colin

I would love to be a doggy. It would be nice to have a life where i dont have to squat my entire life except go to the bathroom outside; where now i have to work.

A fight with your spouse can be exciting, but is it desirable?

I believe when you die everything goes blank… no dreams no afterlife….you just cease to exist. There is no reason to fear it because you wont be able to perceive it since you will no longer exist. Going to some magical kingdom sounds like some willy wonka horse shit… and reincarnation is equally retarded… we arent flash drives that you wipe clean and insert into a new device… we just fade away.

In fact, God has not disclosed to anyone what is in store for us in our hereafter. The same way he hadn’t informed us before our birth on earth, the life hereafter is also a secret. But, be sure that it will be a thousand times better than this and entirely different. Supposing that there are millions of stars and planets, how long it will take for us to visit each planet and live as much time as we want in each place. Just think how much time shall we need to live as much as we want on earth itself, in different places. Life hereafter shall be a great experience which will last forever.

Yes. Although rejected by some modern, less traditional Jews, reincarnation is an ancient, mainstream truth of Judaism, described as dating back to its very beginning, when Moses received the commandments. And it’s clear, rationally rather than emotionally speaking, that Jesus was a Reincarnationist; there is a plethora of evidence attesting that he was. But of course Christianity as we know it now, for the most part fiercely rejects the idea. This is because the Christianity we know today was designed by Roman pagans of the 4th century, such as the Emperor Constantine – not the Jews who actually witnessed and understood Jesus’ teachings. Christianity lost its Jewishness when the Roman politicians and military leaders held councils, hundreds of years after the death of Jesus, to determine what Christianity would and would not be.
Read a good bio on Edgar Cayce if you’d like to know more about how Christianity and reincarnation come together. Cayce was a devout fundamentalist all his life. I suggest “Many Mansions,” a bio of Cayce written by Gina Cerminara: http://www.amazon.com/Many-Mansions-Edgar-Reincarnation-Signet/dp/0451168178
Another interesting book on the subject is http://www.amazon.com/Soul-Survivor-Reincarnation-World-Fighter/dp/0446509337
At the essence of reincarnation is free will – your own and the free will of everyone else with whom you have contact. Interaction with others creates an infinite myriad of circumstances. You make choices from the circumstances that come your way, and if those choices cause harm to yourself or another person, you decide whether or not you want to meet the consequences of those choices. No one punishes you, and there is no possibility of your ever coming back as a bug or whatever — unless you are a little weird, and you choose to. “Gilgul ha’ne’shamot,” as it is called in Hebrew, is a learning process, a beautiful journey toward understanding and enlightenment, which most people will gladly choose again and again. However, eternal sleep is also an option. If you prefer to virtually cease existing, you can. But when you are away from the physical realm where you can see eternity and know who you really, really are, I think you’ll choose to continue this amazing adventure of life.

Yes, of course reincarnation is more exciting than heaven. Ask 10 Christians what heaven is like and you’ll get 11 different answers. Other than praising God for all eternity and not caring about their loved ones roasting hereafter in hell, they don’t know. The bible doesn’t provide details.
To avoid admitting reincarnation is true, some will even invent a new Jesus who was never Jewish. Many of them will twist simple messages like “you must be born again” into some magical, ancient pagan definition, rather than admit the Jewish interpretation is the true one.
Accepting the truth about reincarnation doesn’t rule out the existence of paradise. But it does make it a more desirable neighborhood when you get there.
Edit: An interesting observation… Five anti-reincarnationists here have accounts created this month.

There are many Christians who believe reincarnation is true. Any arguments against it using the Bible are easily flatlined by other verses. There is a lot that can be found to prove reincarnation in both testaments, and as Liora eloquently illustrates (with plenty of source material) there’s no denying it’s part of the body of ancient Jewish belief.

I never heard that about Ford, but I would agree with that sentiment. And I also agree with Ralph Waldo Emerson: “The soul comes from without into the human body, as into a temporary abode, and it goes out of it anew it passes into other habitations, for the soul is immortal. It is the secret of the world that all things subsist and do not die, but only retire a little from sight and afterwards return again. Nothing is dead; men feign themselves dead, and endure mock funerals — and there they stand looking out of the window, sound and well, in some strange new disguise.”
