I think the Bible talks about reincarnation.
I think the Catholic Church tried to wipe out reincarnation for power.
It's really quite simple. If you tell a person if that you have the keys to their soul, this is power. If a person knows that there's life after
death and they are reincarnated, then the Church cannot have power over the souls of men.
With reincarnation, the power lies with the individual. You reap what you sow.
Reincarnation actually takes away the fear of death.
With atheism, they fear death and they look for certainty in an uncertain world. With some religions, people seek comfort about death from a Pope.
Reincarnation says that life after death is a natural cycle just like ice into water. Life just goes through changes like everything else.
In the Bible it says:
I tell you the truth: Among those born of women there has not risen anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet he who is least in the kingdom of heaven
is greater than he. From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it.
For all the Prophets and the Law prophesied until John. And if you are willing to accept it, he is the Elijah who was to come. He who has ears, let
him hear. Matthew 11:11-15, NIV
The disciples asked him, "Why then do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?" Jesus replied, "To be sure, Elijah comes and will
restore all things. But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to him everything they wished. In the same
way the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands." Then the disciples understood that he was talking to them about John the Baptist. Matthew
Clearly, John the Baptist was the reincarnation of Elijah.
It also says:
As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?" John
They asked who sinned? This man or his parents. When did this man sin before he was born?
There's no power with Reincarnation for governments or religious institutions. People use death like a hammer to control the souls of men.
