Reincarnation Debunked

 

Hebrews 9:27 tells us: "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:"

Each human being lives once as a mortal on earth, dies once, and then faces judgment. We do not have a second chance.

2Corinthians 5:8 indicates that at death we immediately go into the presence of the Lord, not into another body. Luke 16:19-31 indicates that unbelievers at death go to a place of suffering, not into another body.

Jesus taught that people decide their eternal destiny in a single lifetime (Matthew 25:46). This is precisely why the apostle Paul emphasized that "now is the day of salvation" (2 Corinthians 6:2).

Jesus taught resurrection, not reincarnation. Jesus predicted His own resurrection early in His public ministry (John 2:19).

And after Jesus resurrected from the dead, He appeared to some disciples and said: "Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have." Luke 24:39.

Jesus resurrected in the same body that went into the tomb. His body even retained the scars and wounds in His hands, feet, and side from the crucifixion (John 20:28).
