Can I Be Saved Through Reincarnation?
Reincarnation is False Theology
Thoughts of reincarnation as being the way to achieve salvation should be summarily rejected by seekers. The teachings of reincarnation attempt to replace the true hope of the Christian faith, that is, the resurrection. For the believer in Christ, the resurrection is the promise of eternal life with Jesus Christ.
The Bible gives clear assurance that upon death the soul of a Christian immediately goes to be in the presence of God.
For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Philippians 1:21
Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:8
To leave this body is to be instantly in the presence of Jesus, and not floating around the realms of the spirit world waiting in line for another body to inhabit, as those who teach reincarnation would have you believe.
Trust God’s Word About False Teachings
God’s Word, the Bible, gives clear warnings about false teachers (2 Peter 2) and shows us we must reject the religious leaders – guru’s and others – who claim to be representatives of God’s truth, or to be God themselves. It would certainly include His command to reject false religions, such as Buddhism, Confucianism, Hinduism, and other such religious groups who teach reincarnation. As believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, we must reject all religions which do not teach according to the Bible but rather hold up some other god or some other savior, or some other means of achieving eternal life.
And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true; and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life. 1 John 5:20
