What is the principle of reincarnation?

14 COMMENTS

  1. It means that when you die you get to be born again into another woman’s womb.
    This was part of Satan’s lie to Eve:
    “Ye shall not surely die”–Genesis 3

  2. For me, the principle is that with each lifetime we educate our souls. We choose to come here, and we also choose what lesson we want to learn about. We never cross species. Can you imagine the knowledge that a soul receives by living one life in the body of a Down’s Syndrome person?
    Fundies are souls that have not matured spiritually.
    The fundies would rather deny facts, but Jesus believed in reincarnation.

  3. Dieing and coming back to life instantly as another life form, either intelligent or non-intelligent, which is why you shouldn’t be stepping on ants and spiders or any other creatures.

  4. I think you meant to say what is the purpose? The purpose is it gives hope to people that don’t believe in God. They are scared of life after death so they made up the stupid reincarnation belief

  5. That our spirit lives as a human more than once. Jesus said Elijah returned as foretold. And he came back as John the Baptist. Matthew Chapters 11, and 17.
    Many confuse this concept. We don’t “have” to come back as bugs. And the idea is to quit goofing around. Take responsibility for ourselves. And put an end to the succession of Lives.

  6. Reincarnation, literally “to be made flesh again”, is a doctrine or metaphysical belief that some essential part of a living being (in some variations only human beings) survives death to be reborn in a new body. This essential part is often referred to as the spirit or soul, the “higher” or “true” self, “divine spark”, or “I”. According to such beliefs, a new personality is developed during each life in the physical world, but some part of the self remains constant throughout the successive lives.
    Belief in reincarnation has ancient roots. This doctrine is a central tenet within the majority of Indian religious traditions, such as Hinduism (including Yoga, Vaishnavism, and Shaivism), Jainism, and Sikhism. The idea was also entertained by some ancient Greek philosophers. Many modern Pagans also believe in reincarnation as do some New Age movements, along with followers of Spiritism, practitioners of certain African traditions, and students of esoteric philosophies such as Kabbalah, Sufism and Gnostic and Esoteric Christianity. The Buddhist concept of Rebirth although often referred to as reincarnation differs significantly from the Hindu-based traditions and New Age movements in that there is no unchanging “soul” (or eternal self) to reincarnate.
    During recent decades, a significant minority of people in the West have developed a belief in reincarnation. Feature films, such as Kundun and Birth, contemporary books by authors such as Carol Bowman and Vicki Mackenzie, as well as popular songs, regularly mention reincarnation.
    Some researchers, such as Professor Ian Stevenson, have explored the issue of reincarnation and published evidence of children’s memories of earlier lives in peer-reviewed journals and elsewhere. Skeptics are critical of this work and say that more reincarnation research is needed.

  7. The central dynamic of reincarnation is the exercise of free will – yours and everyone else’s who crosses your path. No such things as *karma as punishment* – karma enlightens and teaches, and we decide our own karma. You make your own choices and learn from the choices you make. The object of reincarnation is experience life’s many, many adventures and become enlightened through wherever your free will takes you.

  8. The laws of karma and reincarnation are man made and wretched.
    If you travel to a places in the world where people truly believe, you will find the true nature of it and how it holds people in it’s grip.
    Thanks to lack of education and with the help of men like Deepak Chopra,
    Westerners have a very watered down idea of it.
    Take for example a person that has caused much destruction – Hitler, for example, as his name always comes up. Karma and reincarnation teaches that upon his death, the bad karma he accumulated goes on into another life but the recipient has no idea of the weight they are carrying. Hitler’s soul could be reincarnated into another person, animal or insect. There are some people that wear mouth and nose coverings to avoid breathing someone in. (I’m not joking.)
    In countries where karma rules the day and homeless children roam the street, other citizens do nothing to help them. Not because they are cruel but because the child has accumulated bad karma and they believe the sooner the child dies he can begin again. I saw a news article a few years back about a heartbroken mother that had lost her 13 year son to an early death. Just after the funeral, an iguana walked into her home. The photo showed her with tears rolling down her face as she held it – because she was convinced it was her son reincarnated.
    I strongly suggest the book by Ravi Zacharais called “Jesus Among Other Gods”. He was raised in India and has a clear understanding of these things – and he takes strong offense to the tripe dished out by Deepak Chopra.
