Reincarnation: did previous lives happen? And what does the Bible say about it?


I've been hearing a lot about previous-life experience lately. Though I'm skeptical about it, I admit that I like to think it was true. Does the Bible say anything about that? Are there any scientific elements to support reincarnation?

    The Bible say "absent from the body, present with the Lord" and that time with God after death OR separated from Him in hell is eternal. This leaves no room for reincarnation.

    A great deal of the Bible supports reincarnation. And Hebrews only says that "humans" die once. Human is the physical part; the soul or true self is the immortal child of God and it is this true self which has a long history.

    I never learned that in Buddhism -- that we are all made of energy.

    Energy cannot create space, time, mass and energy. Something not made of these can only do the creating.

    Nothing? Jesus said that Elijah had come again, but no one recognized him -- John the Baptist. Too many confuse resurrection with reincarnation. They have two entirely different purposes. Reincarnation exists because He loves His children
