Karma Chameleon:Kabash


Reincarnation: do you believe in it?

Before I even answered this question(scratching my head), I had to think about the definition of reincarnation.  It’s been a while since I’ve even heard people talk about reincarnation. I know that it comes from eastern religions but I wasn’t so sure which ones so I Googled it.

Wikipedia describes it as Reincarnation is the religious or philosophical concept that the soul or spirit, after biological death, begins a new life in a new body that may be human, animal or spiritual depending on the moral quality of the previous life’s actions.

I have for the most part had Judeo-Christian values in my life since I was a child in some way, shape or form which holds the belief that there is only one God. These values also point out that I’m not so perfect(which I agree) thus the need for a savior aka Jesus. Yes, I need and have a savior(call me co-dependent or whatever…I’m okay with that :))The belief that when I die, I would come back as someone or something else(um, do you get to pick?) is in direct opposition to what I hold as a biblical truth. See, in my Bible it says’ that a man is appointed to die once and then there’s judgment’ and reincarnation would put the kabash on the need for a savior. I like the idea that if I’m caught up in a moment of just wanting to slap someone, I can stop and think…WWJD? Okay but really I do love Jesus. Plus, I’m thinking…do I really wanna come back at all? Just sayin’…I’m good with the idea of moving on. I’m gonna have to pass this cup.  I like needing a savior and knowing I can’t do it all, plus for me personally, it’s a lot easier to keep track of God if I only believe there’s one and I do. He has not failed me and having Him in my heart and life has only helped make me a better person.  I’m a work in progress and have many good qualities as well as faults.

It’s for someone…but I’m not that someone.

  1. The whole concept of reincarnation in Hinduism is basically to make sure that the followers understand that the deeds you do in this life, will decide how good/bad your next is. For example, if you had to slap somebody like you said, and if you did it, you just got a few points deducted from your karma and you’ll now be demoted from a billionaire in your next life, to a millionaire :) This is of course only because I assume you have been extremely good the rest of your life and really deserve to be a millionaire LOL!

  2. Thanks for explaining that and making me a millionaire in your hypothetical example, Amba! Yeah, I’m definitely screwed if there’s a point system so I made the right decision. LOL…I’m in much need of grace. ;)

  3. Love the two comics, where did you find them? :) D 34

  4. Reincarnation? Not sure it’s for me neither!
    Why do I feel that we might end up with “Same Story, Different Twist!”, when it comes to reincarnation. But than again I’m not a good friend of the unknown. To be honest I hope I’m done when I’m done :)
