What Does the Bible Say About Reincarnation?

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment (Hebrew 9: 27 KJV).

Hebrews 9: 27 makes it clear that man has but one life to live on this earth. Reincarnation is a yoga doctrine.  So is karma.  The purpose of yoga is realize that Atman is Brahman; Brahman is Atman.  In other words, yoga teaches that self is god.  Is this a Christian doctrine?  Of course not.  So why do a number of Christians take yoga?

Apparently, they consider Hatha Yoga nothing but stretching exercises because that’s how it’s often packaged in the West.  Yet every position assumed in Hatha yoga has a deeper meaning.  Hatha Yoga is a stepping stone to the next level, Raja Yoga, which is more meditative.

When I was in college, I took a comparative religion class and wrote my term paper on yoga.  It was an eye-opener.  Getting involved in yoga opens a door to the occult.  Don’t go there.  But if you have, repent.  Even if you participated in ignorance, repent.

If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you can invite Him into your life now.

And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved (Acts 4: 12 NASB).

    1. Hi Patty. Most people think of yoga as just exercise, a notion encouraged by Hindu missionaries. The Beattles also played a part in making yoga acceptable in the West through their involvement with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and transcendental meditation.

      Yoga is supposed to awaken energy–“kundalini”–coiled at the base of the spine. Kundalini is said to be a serpent goddess. You may have noticed that I included a link to an article on this post about yoga in the elementary schools–an alarming development.

  1. I knew yoga was not for Christians, but I didn’t know why. Thank you for sharing your background knowledge. Also, thank you for becoming a follower of my blog. I am honored you find the posts meaningful.
