<quoted text>Man alive!, I don't know what you have been smoking but it sure does open your own mind to a bunch of foolishness. Can't you just accept the Word for what it is and admit that you are seeing through a glass darkly? Your big problem, as you have stated, is that you haven't found religion that sees eye to eye with your own feeble opinion. I just have to ask, out of morbid curiosity, where does the Bible speak of reincarnation? I'm waiting with bated breath to hear this one. You might just be a crackpot!

Famous People who Believed in Reincarnation....

If you watched the Movie "Patton," you saw and heard Patton talking about serving and fighting in the Roman Army, and in the Grand Army of the Republic under Napoleon Bonaparte. That which we have done in the past leads us to that field in the present.

Reincarnation is mathematically impossible. How many times can a person reincarnate? Why is it the clowns who claim to be reincarnated were previously supposed to be someone famous, of royalty, or otherwise someone special? You never hear of anyone claiming to be a reincarnated town drunk or ax murderer or any mundane or average person. It is a pipe dream for people with vivid imaginations and not so lucid perception.

Somebody changed the spelling of the name Elijah to Elias in the New Testament, nevertheless Elias and Elijah are one and the same, ask any Preacher.
The things that are said here by the angel are the same things said by Malachi the Prophet.
Luke Chapter 1
11 And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense.
12 And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.
13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.
14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth.
15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb.
16 And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God.
17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
Stop trying to fill in the blanks without keeping in mind that John the Baptist came in the SPIRIT and POWER of Elijah, not in the same flesh or person. Meaning, he came with the message as did Elijah, more or less doing the same deeds as he did . You are overlooking that and also the fact that John the Baptist stated that he WAS NOT Elijah. Don't try to hit us with the details and ignore the actual meaning.

Cussing you was giving you dose of your own stupidity numbnuts.
First, they are not my own words dipshit, they are sited from the constitution.
The constitution does not prohibit anyone from "attacking religion" you brainless twit even when it's spelled out right in front of you, you still don't understand.
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. It says right there in plain English that it applies to congress making laws with respect to religion. Furthermore, it doesn't even hold true. Here in the USA try having multiple wives, carrying out a human sacrifice, or killing someone because god told you to and use the separation of church and state as a defense. What it does protect is your ability to believe what you like even if it's in magic underwear and spaghetti monsters.
Say, you may have come up with the solution to all of this sparky, if gay people just make their lifestyle a religion unto itself then they would get all the same protection under the law as any other religious group. They could proudly display their beliefs alongside christianity, and basically be as free from any political oppression as any other religious group.
Great job sparky, you may have just saved the gay people and ensured their prosperity.
Really, Really? Can't you agree that congress (or should I say, the lawmakers being influenced by atheist) are declaring war on religion? The FREE EXERCISE of religion is being bombarded by minority agents under the guise of patriots. Did you decide to stop reading when "free exercise" was included? Sure, let the queers declare themselves a religion. They already have in a manner of speaking, yet they are not subject to being held responsible for their actions. In your rants about the constitution and separation, you fail to realize the founders were opposed to the king of England also being the head of the church and that any support of your view needs to keep that in mind. but of course, you won't. Say, you have a good idea! Why don't you push for Queerligeon? You could be the Headmaster and have an excuse to be on your knees so often.

The BIG Question???? If None of the Biblical Jews and None of the Biblical Christians Believed in Reincarnation, THEN WHY were the people Expecting Elijah to be Reborn in the Flesh.
WHY were they Looking For Elijah? WHY did some of the people Believe that Jesus was Elijah??? You can't twist and turn enough to get around that set of Facts.

It was Not in God's plan for John to Know that he was Elijah, that knowledge may well have had an adverse effect on his mission as the Forerunner of Jesus. Jesus said John the Baptist was Elijah, so, YOU are claiming John Knew More than Jesus did?? Joh the Baptist Did Not Know he was Elijah.

Neither Elijah, Nor you have 8 or 10 Spirits. Elijah Has ONE Spirit, just like everyone else. And that one Spirit of Elijah was Reborn in a new body of flesh as John the Baptist.
The Spirit Is the Person. The Spirit is the Real you, the Flesh is merely a suit of clothes to operate with in this world.

Just Who is reading what into what? I imagine Elijah's flesh was worn out and discarded since several centuries had passed between the time he left this world and the time he was reborn in this world.

Goofy, You are in Error, what makes you think you die and are always born in the future???
You just naturally think that way... News Flash... you can be born at any time the world has been habitable for human beings. If you earn a life that will be cut short by the Black Plague, you will be born at that time......

And the Easter Bunny will leave you a golden egg and Santa Claus will read your wish list. Now you are telling me you could be born in the past? What is this, musical chairs with dead folk sitting in them? Gosh, Patriot.......you've been reading too many Clive Barker fantasy novels or something. Maybe you could be reborn in some time warp and be the present day missing link. But I must say, in our diatribe, we have gotten completely off topic, that being what the Bible says of Homosexuals. I apologize for that, and that only. If a body meet a body, coming thru the rye, it might be yourself! LOL. Don't get me started on dopplegangers!

Simply because they weren't expecting Elijah in the flesh, only his drive, his spirit, his message. Does it confuse you that the Word can be expressed by more than one person, under God's guidance? You are reading a lot of maybe's into the conundrum. We are talking spirit, drive, message, not rebirth as another person. When Elisha asked the Lord to give him a double dose of the spirit and drive of Elijah, did he ask to BE Elijah? Perhaps Jesus said John was Elijah, not in the flesh, but in the message. Don't you see that the message can transcend from one to another person without being that person? All were servants of God. Is it impossible for you to believe that the Word is deliverable without being a repeat of the same person? Don't get me wrong, Patriot, we are on the same page, just in disagreement as to what the page means.

So that is why some people thought that the living Jesus standing ther in the flesh was actually Elijah. The Elijah that Malachi said would be sent back to earth.

You are using very Twisted reasoning to get to an illogical conclusion.

I have read it...... it was obviously written by a Sadducee or a Pharisee. I told you in the beginning that you could believe them if you wish, Or you can believe the Scribes as I do.....
Some of these Jews were Just becoming Christians and they did Not throw down their old beliefs immediately.
The Sadducees, the Pharisees, the Essenes, and the Scribes All speak in the Bible.
Take your pick which one you believe..........

Tehe early Christian Church was divided into TWO Camps. One Group later became the Catholic Church.
The other Group was the Gnostic Christians. Both Groups struggled for control of the New Christian Church.
Each side called the other side Heretics..
When the Catholic Church gained acceptance and recognition by the Emperor and the Government of Rome, they dominated Christianity.
The Roman Government backed them up.

People like me were Slaughtered for believing in Reincarnation...

The Gnostic Christians Believed in and taught Reincarnation.....

This is In the website listed in the previous post

In one of the Gnostic scriptures known as the Gospel of Valentine, there is a passage in which Mary Magdalene asks Jesus about the place of souls prior to entering this world, wanting to know how was the spiritual preparation for the coming of Jesus, and Jesus replies:

"I took Elijah and sent him in the body of John the Baptist. And I sent others to appropriate bodies, so that they may find the mysteries of the Light, and may elevate themselves to the higher regions, and enter into possession of the Kingdom of Light" (Valentine 60: 5-6).

This passage is perfectly clear in stating that John the Baptist was, indeed, Elijah reincarnated.

Gospel of Valentine? How do you come up with such foolishness? What are you going to quote next, the Book of Mormon or a Scientology pamphlet? Apocrypha doesn't really belong in this conversation. You are trailing farther away from the Bible with each new post.

Back to the subject: Homosexuals and the Bible. I think it has been established that the Bible frowns upon homosexuality, no ifs, ands, or buts. I think any book of holy writing does the same. People can try their best to wrinkle the subject, but it all comes right back to the Word. Anyone can try to confuse the subject with who said what and who was right, but the Word of the Bible says what it says. If you don't agree, then you challenge the Bible and what it plainly says. No nit picking allowed! I did not stutter!

Yes, if you choose to oppress and try to tear down an entire segment of the population based on a fairy tale written 2500 years ago, then you are correct.

People "Nit Pick" the Bible all the time, which amuses me to no end......The Bible Plainly says if you have a Rebellious Teenager,"Bring him before the Elders that he may be stoned to death." Nobody likes that one, so nobody does it.
Jehovah Witnesses believe the passage that says, "Thou shalt not Eat the Blood of any animal," includes Blood Transfusions, so they refuse blood transfusions, but they don't take their unruly Teenagers in to be stoned to death.
On and on it goes, people and religious denominations picking and choosing what they want to follow in the Bible.
