I honestly don’t think reincarnation fits into Christianty at all, but that doesn’t mean that Christians can’t believe in it – most believers pick and choose what from the Bible to take away with them anyway.

Hebrews 9:27: ‘Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment’.

Recreation after death/judgement doesn’t fit with the Christian Bible, but that doesn’t mean Christians can’t find the idea attractive.

Leviticus 19:31 says “Do not turn to mediums or spiritists; do not seek them out to be defiled by them”, but Leviticus also doesn’t want you to play football, wear polyester, eat shellfish, or not be a bigot and I personally don’t mind ignoring any of those.

Personally, I don’t believe in past lives or mediums and I think the idea is very “non-Christian”, but other people would find my LGBT-supporting, shellfish-eating, polyester-wearing ways “non-Christian”, so who am I to judge?

If past lives are real, does everyone get one? Is someone walking around right now who was once Jesus? Are they currently the Son of God? Does Jesus only get reincarnated once during the Second Coming?

Well, Gary Busey thinks he has been a lot of things in past lives…so it must be true!

I don’t think I believe in past lives, but I definitely do believe in “the other side,” spirits and mediums. I live about 10 minutes away from Lilydale, which is the largest psychic/medium community in the United States (maybe the world…not sure). I certainly do not live here because I love it/ so I can see them all the time, but I have been there a few times with friends/family over the years.

I also was fortunate enough to live in a haunted house for a few years growing up. I lot of people don’t believe in that either, but when we had our moving sale the old owners came and asked us if we had the same paranormal stuff happen to us that happened to them- very weird.

As far as mediums and god, they always start their sessions talking to God. I think where Christianity comes in is the whole thought that “well, that’s not OUR God!”

I’ve read a lot of books on this subject. Even though so many of the stories are very compelling, I guess I’m still a skeptic, mostly because it’s something I don’t understand. 

Check out this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgOBfCrxS3U 

So many children who claim to have been reincarnated can get so many of the details right.. it’s really interesting to me and something I’ve always been fascinated with.

katy13:  i have a completely irrational fear of water – to the point where in a pool i panic when water touches my neck. I am convinced i drowned in a past life. 

I read Teresa’s book and it explained all through the book how she believes in God & is very religious & how that plays into her communicating with spirits. It was very interesting!

I don’t think that past lives are biblical. Even in the bible it says do not seek advice from mediums. I also don’t think those are really deceased loved ones the lady is talking to.  Call me crazy but it makes more sense if those “spirits” she communicates with are evil spirits playing pretend acting like the deceased trying to dissuade the Living loved one from ever coming to the truth and believing in Jesus Christ. The devils been at this for a really long time and I don’t put it past him to do something that deceiving.  As far as it working with Christianity it doesn’t. U can’t straddle the fence Or serve both masters. The master the Long Island lady is serving isn’t the god of the universe.

katy13:  I find them fascinating! I have a completely irration fear of submerged ships (Titanic, any old maritime wrecks) and don’t even get me started on PARTIALLY submerged ships that are all rusty and sticking out of the water…. GAH!

I often wonder why I would ever be afraid of that and if it somehow plays into a past life.

Who knows?! I’m totally open minded for the most part – we don’t know everything.

MrsA1222:  I have this same thought about my irrational fear. Possibly linked to a past life – who knows!? Why else would we be afraid of things that we have had no known issue with?
