no, no, and yes. In my past life I was dating a guy named Sam Winchester, we were going to college at Stanford, then his brother Dean came for a visit, and they had to go to some cabin to get their dad. Then I was dragged onto a ceiling by some unseen force, sliced in the middle, an burst into...oh wait, that wasn't me. That was on a tv show. Sorry, I guess the answer is no to the last question too.
My sister in Washington State believes heavily in reincarnation. She has told me about being several different people. For myself... I am christian and do not believe in it. Her goal is to eventually be equal to God. We just never talk religion together but we love each other.
As a recovering Christian fundamentalist I would like to believe that reincarnation is possible or even a "fact". Why? Well if there is any truth to the concept of Hell as I understand it, I think it would be preferable to reincarnate as another human being. Still that is no guarantee one will not reincarnate as a "crazy cat or bag lady" or have a nice life. But it does beat burning for eternity. Of course some Christians reading this might say: "Well do what you're supposed to do and not do what you're NOT supposed to do, and you'll get to Heaven and avoid Hell." Yeah, if you are one of those who firmly believe that, then count your blessings that you are indeed one of the "Chosen ones". But I would think very carefully before actually READING your Holy Bible YOURSELF instead of being force or spoon fed the stuff by someone in fancy clothes, because there is much in there that might just make your "one-way" trip to Heaven a little in doubt. (However by keeping your "holier-than-thou-ness" and Bible thumping to yourself I will save you from certain discomfort, but please folks, don't push me.)
When a living being dies, nothing at all survives because the person is a soul (Genesis 2:7). Death is a state in which the person is in a dreamless sleep, just laying there and not suffering, feeling or contemplating anything at all. The Bible teaches us that dying is just a state where there is no formation of any projects, where we don't have wages, where there is no devising of work or where there is no knowledge either (Ecclesiastes 9: 5, 10). When the Bible talks about a resurrection it specifically refers to a bringing back to life of the same personality (Acts 24:15). For a great majority of the people that are resurrected this will be a resurrection of life to earth. This will occur after the current wicked system of things is brought to an end by Jesus (Daniel 2:44). When this wicked system of things is bought to an end, there is the assurance that all bad things will no longer be, including death, sickness, poverty, hunger and other sufferings (Revelation 21:3,4). It is reassuring to know that our loving creator will not reincarnate us into a roach or rat but rather resurrect us into the humans we originally were. Hope this helps.
