Except Satan opposing our Lord, it is hard to find in the world an higher antagonism like the one between the opposite conceptions of Reincarnation vs Ressurrection.
The first divides the Soul from the Body in an absolute manner. It is of Manichean origin because if the soul and body were created by different Gods, every one having power on the proper realm and not on the other.
Reincarnation is indulgence towards the proper sins. You have not to repent of them. Next life will be better. So don't make waves with all these problems of the sinners and of the repentance. If you have a million of reincarnations at disposition, you can be an Adolf Hitler, then who cares? In the 1,000,001st reincarnation you will be saved. The problem is the same of the ones who want to cease to smoke: tomorrow I stop smoking; next life I will think to the "errors" (instead to say "sins") of this life.
Resurrection says that you die ONCE. And that you are responsible not simply for what you commit with your body which has been created by the same God who created your soul, and gave this body to your soul in order to be administered witnessing the glory of God. You are responsible for having let the material world to have polluted your soul with evilness: it is called "sin". But God knows that it is impossible to avoid that and sent on earth His Son to deliver all men and women from sin.
Moreover, it is to honor God the Creator of All, the fact that you will be resurrected with your material body. He created it, so don't despise it.
Ok stop here. Now let's see who is who about reincarnation. Guess...... YAZIDIs. Let's give a look at the Reincarnation belief of this group, targeted by the "protestants" of Islam, the "Sunni" ISIS:
"A belief in the reincarnation of lesser Yazidi souls also exists. Like the Ahl-e Haqq, the Yazidis use the metaphor of a change of garment to describe the process, which they call kiras guhorîn in Kurmanji (changing the garment). Spiritual purification of the soul can be attained via continual reincarnation within the faith group, but it can also be halted by means of expulsion from the Yazidi community; this is the worst possible fate, since the soul's spiritual progress halts and conversion back into the faith is impossible. Alongside this notion of continuous rebirth, Yazidi theology also includes descriptions of heaven and hell, with hell extinguished, and other traditions incorporating these ideas into a belief system that includes reincarnation."
"Spiritual purification of the soul can be attained via continual reincarnation within the faith group,".
Well, this is a LAW. No a faith. "You purify" underlines a voluntary part of your conscience, of your will. Faith is the opposite. You gain faith when you understand you are lost. L-O-S-T. And needy of a Savior. It is the old good definition of doc Luther (let's put aside for a moment his Roman Catholic anti-semitism), when he clearly told that "man has too short arms to reach God".
But which else group in those regions has a strong belief in Reincarnationism? Guess ....
THE RELIGIOUS GROUP OF BASHAR AL-ASSAD:
"A succession of coups ensued until, in 1963, a secretive military committee (including Alawite officers Hafez al-Assad and Salah Jadid) helped the Ba'ath Party seize power. In 1966 Alawite-affiliated military officers successfully rebelled and expelled the Ba’ath Party old guard followers of Greek Orthodox Christian Michel Aflaq and Sunni Muslim Salah ad-Din al-Bitar, calling Zaki al-Arsuzi the "Socrates" of the reconstituted Ba'ath Party.
In 1970 Air Force General Hafez al-Assad, an Alawite, took power and instigated a "Correctionist Movement" in the Ba'ath Party. The coup of 1970 ended the political instability which had existed since independence. Robert D. Kaplan compared Hafez al-Assad's coming to power to "an untouchable becoming maharajah in India or a Jew becoming tsar in Russia—an unprecedented development shocking to the Sunni majority population which had monopolized power for so many centuries". In 1971 al-Assad declared himself president of Syria, a position the constitution at the time permitted only for Sunni Muslims. In 1973 a new constitution was adopted, replacing Islam as the state religion with a mandate that the president's religion be Islam, and protests erupted. In 1974, to satisfy this constitutional requirement, Musa as-Sadr (a leader of the Twelvers of Lebanon and founder of the Amal Movement, who had unsuccessfully sought to unite Lebanese Alawites and Shiites under the Supreme Islamic Shiite Council) issued a fatwa that Alawites were a community of Twelver Shiite Muslims. Under the authoritarian, secular Assad government, religious minorities were tolerated more than before but political dissidents were not. In 1982, when the Muslim Brotherhood mounted an anti-government Islamist insurgency, Hafez Assad staged a military offensive against them known as the Hama massacre.
Alawites consider themselves to be Muslims, although some Sunnis dispute that they are. Alawite doctrine incorporates Gnostic, neo-Platonic, Islamic, Christian and other elements and has, therefore, been described as syncretistic.
ReincarnationAlawites hold that they were originally stars or divine lights that were cast out of heaven through disobedience and must undergo repeated reincarnation (or metempsychosis) before returning to heaven. They can be reincarnated as Christians or others through sin and as animals if they become infidels."

Are today Russian and Chinese the bayonets of the pope?
Well, let's see what was thinking about Origen - founding father of the Catholic church (actually not admitted by Rome, because too much revealing of her true colors):
"On his blog, Robin Parry wrote:Did Origen believe in the salvation of the devil? He clearly believed that all rational souls were able to be saved (Contra Celsum 4.99) and this would, on Origen's view of the nature of demonic forces, have included the devil and his demons. So the accusation was stirred up that he taught the salvation of demons. But, in a letter to his friends in Alexandria he explicitly denied that he thought the devil and his demons would be saved. So did he or didn't he? Tricky.
Perhaps the following passage explains how he could maintain both positions:
Peri Archon 3.6.5 (trans. Marguerite Harl, Gilles Dorival, and Alain Le Boulluec. Paris, 1976, p.67) wrote:For the destruction of the last enemy must be understood in this way, not that its substance which was made by God shall perish, but that the hostile purpose and will which proceeded, not from God but from itself, will come to an end. It will be destroyed, therefore, not in the sense of ceasing to exist, but of being no longer an enemy and no longer death. For to the Almighty nothing is impossible, nor is anything beyond the reach of cure by its maker.
Gregory of Nyssa was even more bold than Origen on this issue: He maintained that "the originator of evil himself will be healed” (Catechetical Orations 26. The Catechetical Oration of Gregory of Nyssa. Edited by James H. Srawley. Cambridge, 1903, p. 101).
accepting the premise of a literal devil and literal demons, i fully agree too. if they aren't real, then it doesn't matter, but if they are, then the last prodigal son coming home i guess will be him...and we'll meet him with forgiveness and rejoicing. what a triumph for God that will be!
That's an excellent point. Someone was mocking me on FB a few days ago about the possibility of Hitler being saved, but my wife pointed out that that would be an amazing triumph, a true miracle, showing God's power & glory more than any live demonstration of never ending punishment. That's just Hitler, a fellow sinner like us! Imagine what it will be like when the devil, the author of evil, repents & is converted!!!! Possibly the most amazing triumph ever (the triumph over death is up there too).
Pure 100% anti-Christian - is this the effect of the Jesuits' manipulation among the "Evangelical" and "Baptists" in USA? - see the word of God [Revelation 20 and Mark 9; KJB]:
10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet [are], and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
43 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
This guy doesn't say that we have not to boast for believing to be better than Hitler and therefore to gain from that comparison the automatic salvation, he says that if Hitler got saved, well, we all will be saved. End. Can you call that "hypocrisy" or you have a worst label? Check out the words of Jesus Christ our Lord - He died on the cross, if only He had listened to this "Evangellical" guy, He would have renounced to be put on the cross (pardon me Jesus, You know my heart) - Luke, 13:1-5, KJB:
1 There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.This is exactly what distinguish Christendom from other beliefs: don't think that you are less deserving Hell than your executioner. Because Jesus Christ knew the hypocrisy of human heart, that place from which all evilness comes after having been planted by Satan. Jesus, aka God the Son, knew well that human hypocrisy is continually searching a worse neighbor, apparently worse than us, in order to boast the proper alleged salvation. At the end of the story you must find the WORST gu, who need to be saved, in order to decree hypocritally as "saved" the rest of sinful humanity: the guy Satan.
2 And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things?
3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
4 Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?
5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
Tell me now if Satan would agree or not with this "Christian" doctrine.... Of course Satan agrees with this! He created this doctrine, the source of Evil in the world.
