I am a Gnostic Christian. I believe in reincarnation. I have lived before, I live now, I will have future lives- the soul is immortal & never dies. When I am not here (on Earth, in a body) I am somewhere else - when I am somewhere else, I am not here on earth. Karma is the law of the universe. What you do to others, will be done to you. We make our own hells and miseries, we craft them like a weaver weaves a tapestry. No one to blame for your pain but yourself. Hell is not somewhere else, It's within when you are tormented by your own stupidity & bad decisions & have separated yourself from the Source, the Father of Lights - God is ALL love, light, beauty & goodness. Hell is exile from God. Jesus came to teach us to love as God loves.

If I were ever to accept the idea of reincarnation, I would also have to separate the unliving soul from time, so that essentially every human being is only one soul, reincarnated into every singe individual that ever existed. It is the ultimate in Karma: you are not only yourself, but you are also your Father, and your Son. Everything bad that anyone ever did to you, you did to yourself. You are your own rapist, and murderer. (should that happen) you are your judge, jury and executioner. Thou art God, water brother.

Well if what God says is the truth (and not a lie) then we should take what He inspired men to write as the truth as fact, Correct? I suggest rereading your Bible (and asking God to guide your reasoning) because most of what you wrote is contrary to the Word of God, is not correct doctrine. We have ONE life to live, my friend and unless you are "born-again" (John 3) you will not see the kingdom of God.

Actually, if there is a God and what God says is the truth, what you want us to take as fact is still what men SAYING they were inspired by God wrote. You may not have noticed, but there were other men who said they were inspired by God who wrote different things. It's not like God smites people who claim to speak for him.

The new documentary Hellbound? has reignited discussion about the perennial topic of hell as well as revealed some very bizarre perspectives.

Kevin Miller, the film’s director, who identifies as a Christian, stated in an interview that, regarding the traditional view of hell as a place of fiery torment, “I don’t see anything in the Bible that would lead me to believe that such a place exists.” Instead, according to Miller, when Jesus talked about hell, he was talking about the here and now.

Really? Jesus didn’t warn about a place of judgment to come? And Director Miller gets his...
