I’m a Christian and am writing a fantasy story centering around dreams. I planned on making one of my characters be reincarnated so a particular ability of his could live on for a while. Now apparently, the bible heavily opposes reincarnation depicting it as evil.
So if I write that in my story, will it be wrong and won’t be acceptable? I asked this in the religion/spirituality section for a reason, because I’d rather Christians answer.
The Bible says nothing against reincarnation Christians do.
John the Baptist was the reincarnation of Elijah.
Jesus said of John
And if ye will receive it, this is Elias(or Elijah), which was for to come.
Until the year 545 all Christians believed in reincarnation when the Roman Emperor Justinian arrested Pope Vigilius and forced him to draft a papal decree which stated..
“If anyone asserts the fabulous preexistence of souls, and shall assert the monstrous restoration which follows from it: let him be anathema.”
Other Christians continued to believe in reincarnation especially the Gnostics but the first Inquisition in 1307 ended that.
Now it’s believed without question that Christians never believed in reincarnation.
