I’m a catholic. But I believe in reincarnation, anybody else?

I’ve had many recurring dreams always of the same thing, in the same time period, and they always end in my death. I got to thinking that maybe I had lived before, and been reincarnated. But this does go against my catholic upbringing.

maybe just genetic encoded memories?

Catholics say If you belive in reincarnation you shall go to hell, however if you are having these dreams and have this feeling that you lived before and want to find answers I think you should do it. I am Christian, however I still belive god gives second chances. Religion is what YOU belive. If you were brought up as catholic and told if you belive this you’ll go to hell, but do belive it, you should follow it. I honestly think-in my opinion. No offense Catholics- that Catholics spend more of there time hateing others for there beliefs and… Read more »

From the beginning Judaism has traditionally accepted reincarnation as fact: “Behold, all these things does God do — twice, even three times with a man — to bring his soul back from the pit that he may be enlightened with the light of the living.” (Job 33:29) What this means is the early Jews believed that God would allow a person to come back to the world “of the living” from “the pit” (which is Gehenna, the Jewish version of “purgatory” — there is no “Hell” in Judaism) a second and third time (or a multitude of times). Proverbs 8:22-31… Read more »

I believe the Lord is warning you that the path you’re on with the catholic teachings will lead you to death/destruction. If you would do a little research on the catholic church history or read the New Testament you will leave the catholic Church immediately because it’s doctrines are straight out of the pit of Hell and their author is none other than satan himself ! You should be pleased to know that the Lord Jesus Christ, not Mary or any of the other saints, cares enough for you that He is warning you before it is too late. Call… Read more »

You’re theory for proving the alleged reality of reincarnation is “maybe just genetic encoded memories”? Is there any evidence of “genetic encoded memories”? No. No theological evidence No scientific evidence. The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches: 1013 Death is the end of man’s earthly pilgrimage, of the time of grace and mercy which God offers him so as to work out his earthly life in keeping with the divine plan, and to decide his ultimate destiny. When “the single course of our earthly life” is completed, we shall not return to other earthly lives: “It is appointed for men… Read more »

I too am Roman Catholic. I don’t accept Reincarnation because it conflicts with the role of Jesus as atonement for our sins. Reincarnation has you work out your salvation by being born repeatedly into different lives. I can never quite figure out how you grow in Reincarnation with no memory of past mistakes. What if you become a roach? That said; I have always felt out of place in this world and time. I seem to be connected to other places and people. I am drawn to the past. Even in childhood, I read books set in the past. It… Read more »

In fact you are not a Catholic if you believe in reincarnation. Being a Catholic means accepting the teaching of the Catholic Church. Reincarnation is completely opposed to Christian teaching, and therefore to Catholic teaching.

You can not be a Christian and believe in reincarnation.

Please do not take this to be offensive, as I mean not to do so.

However, one cannot say that they are Catholic and believe in reincarnation. When we die, our body dies, and our soul moves on. There is no ‘coming back’ as another person, animal, etc…

I would not continue to toy with that idea, as that really means that you doubt your faith, and ultimately, doubt what GOD and the Church has taught us.

Ignore these people, believe what you want. NO one can know for sure if anything is real, so go for it!

If you believe in reincarnation, you are probably not a catholic. It definitely goes against Catholic teachings. I’m not a Catholic, but they would tell you that when you die, you would probably go to purgatory.

There are no such things as “past lives.” When you die you either go to heaven or hell depending on whether you believe in Jesus or not for salvation. Please pray a sincere prayer with all of your heart admitting to Jesus you are a sinner. Have full faith that His blood pays off all of your sins and accept His gift of everlasting life. I pray that God blesses you with peace. Amen.

your crazy! reincarnation is an epic fail! And Jesus is the messiah. That being the case, reincarnation makes no sense and has no ground to stand on.

reincarnation is wrong and you can not seriously believe that and be a Catholic so having said that, let me offer an explanation, have you considered the communion of saints?—we are after all one body so is it possible you are reliving someone elses life experience who has gone before you or something like that?

You can’t be a Catholic and believe in reincarnation. Say 21 Hail Marys and confess.

Your god will strike you down for having Buddhist beliefs.

Cherry picking Catholic?

You’ll need to delete the first part if you continue like this. Catholicism does not truck with reincarnation.
I don’t believe in reincarnation mainly because it can never explain why so many more people/animals/things exist today than 4 billion years ago. If reincarnation were true, many more people would admit to being peasants in middle ages, instead of Cleopatra or Marie Antoinette.

Beh, “genetic encoded memories” that’s just physically impossible.

If there was reincarnation, there wouldn’t be an origin to life on earth. On the other hand, no scientist has ever found out how there could ever be a concept of ‘self-awareness’, so I can’t tell you for sure.
