Is reincarnation possible?

It is estimated that 23 percent of Americans think that reincarnation is possible. Many celebrities and prominent figures widely proclaim their belief in it. You will notice, though, that along with the belief in reincarnation come beliefs or practices in astrology, Eastern meditation and psychic issues.

Reincarnation means "to come again in the flesh." Because of that interpretation, many reincarnation proponents claim that Jesus taught the doctrine to Nicodemus when Jesus told him that he must be born again. If you study the entire conversation, however, it is clear that Jesus did not refer to reincarnation nor did Nicodemus misunderstand Him. Read John 3. Another biblical doctrine misused to support the idea of reincarnation is Galatians 6:7b, which says, "A man reaps what he sows." This is considered to be "Karma," which is what determines the state of your next life. This is misapplied and is in direct conflict with Hebrews 9:27, which thoroughly refutes any possibility of reincarnation: "It is appointed unto man once to die and then comes the judgment."

Once-that's it, folks. You don't get to keep trying to get it right. Luckily, all you need to do to get it right the first time is to surrender your life to Jesus Christ. Ask Him to forgive your sins and past unbelief, and then live your life for Him.
