REINCARNATION: THE QUESTION OF RESURRECTION

Complete resurrection from death to life is accomplished only in Jesus, who alone possesses the fullness of Life. We participate in His total victory through our faithful releasement into His Spirit of Divine Love.

Resurrection is the process in which we are being made increasingly alive by the power of His Spirit.
It is the salvific process of the Body of Christ in which we are being raised from death to true life in Him.

Reincarnation is the way of the resurrection process.

Yet, this does not negate true personal identity. For, the spirit of each individual is eternal, the very breath of God (Genesis 2:7). As Paul declares, the body of resurrection is a spiritual body (1 Cor. 15:44).

The concept of reincarnation does not necessitate an essential soul-body dualism in which the spirit is good and the body is evil. In a true Christian understanding of reincarnation consistent with Divine Love, the aim is not escape from a body perceived as evil, but the transfiguration of our total being into Christlikeness.

The spiritual and physical are not antithetical, but integral aspects of reality. Neither does the immortality of incarnated souls and the mortality of their co-ordinate physical expressions necessarily imply such.
