Reincarnation and Christianity
Comments by Debra Stitt - 9 Sep 2010

I know there are some that believe we keep returning until we have experienced the many lifestyles and challenges that humankind endures. Hence, the term "old soul." For example, you might have been an animal abuser in a prior life so your next life experience is that of an animal activist. Or, you were extremely wealthy and selfish in a prior life so your next life experience is that of someone that struggles to make ends meet and has compassion for others through understanding.

Once you've come full circle, you're ready to join the Lord.

The following passage from John is interpreted by many to mean that Jesus was God in the flesh. To better know "His Children," He needed to have the human experience. In other words, God, because of His Love for His Creation, came to us in human form with the full knowledge that He would ultimately be the sacrifice that would ensure salvation for believers.

John 1 1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God.

The point of sharing this passage is to help explain why some believe that we continue to return until we've had the "full" human experience ... and then we join our creator. If one believes in this philosophy, it removes the question of why it appears some people "have the life," while others don't. This line of thinking levels the playing field, so to speak. In other words, we all get our "fair share" of joy and grief.

To believe or not to believe ... that is the question.
