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.
Chapter and verse, please. The Bible does not condemn reincarnation. The word does not appear there. The Bible says the dead will rise again.
24Jesus replied, “Are you not in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God? 25When the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven. 26Now about the dead rising–have you not read in the book of Moses, in the account of the bush, how God said to him, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? 27He is not the God of the dead, but of the living. You are badly mistaken!”
who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.
4They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5(The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection. 6Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years.
