After all, the idea of reincarnation defies Christianity’s basic teachings.
The Bible, which does not even mention reincarnation, says we die once and then face judgment (Hebrews 9:27).
If men live through many lifetimes, then there is no biblical judgment at death, but Hebrews 9:27 teaches there is.
If men must work out their own salvation over many lifetimes, then Jesus Christ did not have to die on the cross for our sins, but 1 John 2:2 and Luke 24:25-26 teach that he did.
If all men will eventually be saved and absorbed into the impersonal Brahman, then there is no eternal heaven or hell, but Matthew 25:46 and Revelation 20:10-15 teach that they are real.
