Oh, Really?

Scripture Refutes Reincarnation and So Does this Excellent Question

“I like the idea of reincarnation,”* the woman said. “You get to keep coming back until you’re perfect.”

“And have you ever met anyone who was perfect?” asked April politely.

This was part of a conversation that my mentoring group had with a woman on the University of SC campus several years ago. I was surprised by the wisdom in April’s question. I always learned more from the women I mentored than they learned from me.

April’s question was such a perfect way of pointing out an inconsistency in reincarnation. And it was such a good example of how false faiths break down when tested because they are devised by men, not God.

Christianity is far more complex than false faiths, but it passes the test of time and logic. 

Actually, the complexity of Christianity proves it comes from a God far wiser and more complex than men.

"Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?" 1 Corinithians 1:20

Today I'm thanking God for His Truth that endures forever (Psalm 117).
* Scripture which refutes Reincarnation: Hebrews 9:26-28

  1. Wow Gail! Great devotion! Thanks for thinking of me. I don't remember saying that at all! It's amazing how the Lord prompts us to say things that we don't even realize are touching people's lives :) It's funny, I was just thinking about you & our little group & what blessing it was this weekend.....Miss & Wendy & I got together for a girls weekend & we're reminiscing our CIU days. I hope you are well & Have a very Merry Christmas!
    Much joy,
    April

  4. Thanks so much for your explanation of this. Our nephew was killed in March here in Australia in a 'Workplace Incident'. Unfortunately his Workplace did not follow the Safety guidelines that is lawful in Australia.
    His widow and they have young children; her family has 'New Age'/ Catholic belief, a mix of both. Our niece in law, if that is the right name, asked me a few days ago about what we, my husband and I, believe as Christians about reincarnation.
    I told her we go to be with God and are reunited with those who have died before us in 'Heaven'. Our nephew was from a Christian background.
    He was killed instantly in a trench collapse in the state of Victoria, Australia. His young apprentice was buried up to his neck. Both were not found for possibly 2 hours.
    The young man died the next day from the results of his 'Crush injuries', despite being rushed to the city of Melbourne for emergency surgery.
    This young man's family are distraught and with our nephew's young widow; they are all striving to see chages in the Industrial workplace legislation.
    This beautiful corageous young woman is 'Spiritual ', she describes herself and recognizes that my husbsnd and I and her also early widowed Mother in Law as Christians are 'Spiritual'.
    Hence her question about Reincarnation. She also asked 'Where do we come from before we are born?
    I replied that we come from God, remembering the Psalm that says that God knew us and formed us in our mother's womb before we were born. It is only now that I remember where that quote is from. Psalm 139 I think.
    I need to send her or quote that Psalm address so our niece in law can be assured. - Jayne, Perth, Western Australia.

    1. Evan,
      I'm so sorry about your nephew, and I pray that the questions this young woman is asking will lead her to the Lord. I'm sure it's not accident that God has you there to help answer her questions. May God give you wisdom.
