Recently, two women tried to persuade me that a Christian could believe in reincarnation.
But they were dead wrong (no pun intended).
Reincarnation is the belief that we live many lives until we reach perfection.
But reincarnation and Christianity are completely incompatible:
1. Hebrews 9:27-28 says, "Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him."
2. The Bible teaches that no one can achieve perfection, so it wouldn't matter how many lives we live.
3. Jesus died to save sinners, and the Bible makes it clear that only those saved sinners will be in heaven.
We have two lives...our beliefs in the first life determine our destination in the second.
I encourage you to read "Oh, Really?" It contains a great question that a friend of mine asked a reincarnation advocate.
