Message Subject Reincarnation in the Bible
Poster Handle Amilius
Post Content
The purpose here is to not reincarnate into a better life but to stop reincarnation indefinitely. Once you achieve enlightenment, you won't need to reincarnate and live in the afterlife in endless bliss.
 Quoting: Amilius


This is where there is a disagreement between "resurrection" and 'reincarnation'.

According to the doctrine of 'reincarnation', the world is essentially irredeemable; hence, the only 'redemption' is to stop the 'reincarnational process' altogether.

But, according to the Revelations of the monotheistic religions, it is this world which, ultimately, will be redeemed. That is, there is no escape from living future lives because, at some point, this world will be transformed into something completely different than it is right now.

This world was Created by the Creator to be inhabited, as stated in the Book of Isaiah, in which book is also the first reference to the revelation of the memories of previous lives (Chapter 26:19).

 Quoting: 4Q529

I think both can be true. I believe in both. Hinduism says we have devolved and must achieve enlightenment and stop reincarnation to become one with God Brahman. I don't know if Buddhism teaches we have devolved but it does teach we are all enlightened just have to wake up. Both religions accept reincarnation and karma and both teach the future will be better for us.
