There is possibility that reincarnation is true and could be the missing link in UR belief. I.e those that do not believe in Jesus perish and must reincarnate, but those that do believe in him shall never die and will keep their present existence to the next life.
That's just one view on things , I have many different viewpoints, angles on this as you can imagine
E.g another view is that we reincarnate and those that believe on Jesus who die, get to reincarnate with a fresh new clean spirit, while those who die in their sins, have to reincarnate with their sins still in their spirit, thus causing them problems as they grow up, because we reap what we sow.
This idea is found in a scripture that says, "Those who leave mother father, houses will be given ,wifes etc far more in this life and the life to come"
So how can a man who forsakes all to follow Jesus receive far more in this life? How can this promise be fullfilled without reincarnation?
In another verse, the Jews ask Jesus did this blind man from birth sin or his parents?
How could the blind man sin in his mothers womb? It suggests that the Jews knowledge was that reincarnation was part of their beliefs.
I'm not a believer in reincarnation, but I'm looking at the possibility.
