Christianity rejects the idea of reincarnation. This is a pity because it prevents people from understanding how divine justice operates. So it should not come as a surprise when things don’t seem to make sense: when you do not see the deeper reason for situations and events. They are impossible to understand and you come to the conclusion that injustice reigns overall. In the face of suffering and unhappiness, Christians say, ‘It is God’s will.’ They themselves – strangely enough! – have done nothing to bring these misfortunes upon themselves. They aren’t responsible for anything, it is the Lord doing as he pleases, and what pleases him does not seem to be based on any kind of justice.
By rejecting reincarnation, Christianity has misled people. Because with reincarnation everything makes sense: we understand how the law of cause and effect manifests from one life to the next. No longer is the Lord dispensing good and evil without our ever knowing why; human beings create their own destiny. And so God remains in his greatness, his splendour, his perfection and, above all, his justice.
