Many years back, I read somewhere that in the 12 (?) centuary, the pope ordered that all references to reincarnation should be removed from the bible, as if thieves believed that hanging would cause them to start a new life, rather than burn in hell, they would have no fear of the punishment, therefore would continue to sin.

I do not recall where I read this, so can not check the accuracy of the statement.

Can you tell me if this is true, also are there any other important references that have been removed to ensure our compliance to the current teachings?


Not true.

Nothing needs to be removed to "ensure our compliance" because the rug that is the core truth has been pulled out from under the western world for a long long time. People have no foundation in truth and therefore make up their own stories and use the Bible to back them up. The fact that you, an many many others, think of Bible teaching as something to be "complied" with like a legal structure is proof that the core truth has been lost.

If you're seriously wanting real scholarship, then look to Jaroslav Pelikan. He was a Yale Professor who was quite well-known and celebrated for his scholarship when it came to Christian history and theology.
