reincarnation is not Christian. The Bible speaks differently:
Hebrews 9:27
"Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment"

A person lives and dies once, then judged.

my mother always told me that we live life because were supposed to learn a grat lesson, and that if we miss it or dont quite get it the first time that we have to keep living it over and over until we learn. she never told me about hell, she told me we made our own hell on earth not learning what god was tryng to tell us. I believe that now, but i am also pagan~ Dont let anyone tell you what to believe- they dont know any more than you do, they have faith, not certainty. I think what we all agree on is that there is a truely benevolent force out there that wants each of us to be wise and happy. Dont think, become.

Mine stare at me because they want me to feed them, or let them out to do their thing.

I really don't know, no one does.

What is the Bible reference for this quote?
"Jesus tells us, it is appointed for man once to be born, and then the judgement."

Reincarnation???........We get more chances to come back and get it right????......IF God gave us a hundred or a million chances we would never get it right........our right-eousness.......is imparted to us by FAITH in Jesus Christ who is the only one who ever got it right...for our sakes......but maybe if we come back as a grasshopper that might just do it

I'm sorry on that one, I spoke incorrectly. What I ment to say is. It is appointed unto men once to die but after this the Judgement. That verse is found in Hebrews 9:27. Also, Jesus states that we need two births. There is our physical birth, which gives us access to our earthly existance, and then there is our spiritual birth which gives us access to our heavenly existance. And that is why Jesus told Nicodemus that unless a man is born again, he will not see the Kingdom of heaven. He told Nicodemus, that which is born of flesh is flesh, and that which is born of spirit is spirit. That is found in John 3:6.
