The Greeks believed in reincarnation- called it transmigration. The jews believed in reincarnation- also called it transigration. The Hindus, Buddhists and all the other eartern religions believed in reincarnation. Early Christianity also continued the Jewish belief.

Constantine, when he took over the Christian religion in about 300 AD, abolished the belief in reincarnation because if people thought they would just be born again, they would be much more likely to die for a cause against Rome. So Constantine made it seem that if you did not obey Rome you would not get into heaven, and you only had one chance.

So today only Christianity and Islam do not believe in reincarnation.

And besides my personal revelation verifies at least for me that it is true. How do you know that your existence started in the womb? Please explain. Nowhere in the bible does it say that. In fact, jewish belief is that it says the opposite.

Regards,

Richard
