I completely disagree. Your body may limit your options but it does not determine your choices and we all have them.

What if one is to be cryogenically frozen at time of death. The soul is then reincarnated....but years down the road science manages to revive the body...Does this singular soul then occupy two bodies?
Food for thought.

I got on this thread late and have not bothered reading through it, I just answered on my own. I now see that you have been a participant, should I bother going back and reading the whole thing or is it pretty much the standard from others? Hope you are well dear friend.
Chances are if the topic involves reincarnation... Im always in there somewhere These threads bring out the worst and the best in people... And you know i love to poke the beast
7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
and the dust returns to the ground it came from,
and the spirit returns to God who gave it.
10 And His disciples asked Him, “Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?” 11 And He answered and said, “Elijah is coming and will restore all things; 12 but I say to you that Elijah already came, and they did not recognize him, but did [a]to him whatever they wished. So also the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands.” 13 Then the disciples understood that He had spoken to them about John the Baptist.
The sole biblical account of the birth of John the Baptist comes from the Gospel of Luke. John’s parents, Zechariah or Zachary — a Jewish priest — and Elizabeth, were without children and both were beyond the age of child-bearing. During Zechariah's rotation to serve in the Temple in Jerusalem, he was chosen by lot to offer incense at the Golden Altar in the Holy Place. The Archangel Gabriel appeared to him and announced that he and his wife would give birth to a child, and that they should name him John. However, because Zechariah did not believe the message of Gabriel, he was rendered speechless until the time of John's birth; at that time, his relatives wanted to name the child after his father, and Zechariah wrote, "His name is John" and could speak (Luke 1:5-25; 1:57-66).
Why is it that Hindu's don't accept the idea of eternal life with God the father.
For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Jesus did bring us forgiveness of sins but we still must fulfill the law. Still Jesus is a great Bodhisattva and did make the sacrifice for all mankind.

Works are different from thoughts. To think something and to act on that thought are two totally separate things.
Just because I think about stealing from someone doesn't mean I actually did it. I guess thinking about something and not doing it is the same thing as doing it to you?
