Those Mormons don't want you reading their stuff.
I'm not sure I want to know the support for Jesus having set foot in North America, or that being dark-skinned was a curse from God (a position the church disavowed 10 years ago.)
My mother and half my family are Mormons. I am not because my father wouldn't allow it. My niece and her husband who bought our RV are Mormon; we removed the Keurig out of there because they don't drink coffee. :gasp: I don't want to think about life without coffee.
Interesting. I imagine they are just regular people. I wonder if the farther from Salt Lake City you are, the looser the grip from the mother ship.
People tend to forget that the Celtic church was established before the Catholic. Their teaching is much closer to the original teachings of Jesus, and it does include the concept of re-incarnation.
South America. Descended into 'hell' for three days before ascending. Not sure the natives thought of it as hell but....
Another Christian who believed in reincarnation was Edgar Cayce, known as The Sleeping Prophet. I believe that this is an interesting question, and I have looked at it both ways.
I read what Cayce said, but didn’t think that it necessarily was correct, but I could see his interpretation. Have you read this, @Michelle Anderson , and if so, what was your thought about it ?
An interesting thing is that we do read in the Bible about demons (evil spirits) entering both a human body and animals (pigs, as an example) and taking over the body.
Jesus had to cast out demons, and he also told his apostles that they would be casting out demons.
So, if an evil spirit can dwell in a human body, maybe for the lifetime of that body, then it seems possible to me that a good spirit of a departed person might be able to “return” into another human body. The idea of coming back to lean to live a better life, or maybe to redeem a poorly lived one, makes sense to me, with the spirit achieving a higher spirituality over the lives.
Haha, yes, they are "regular people." Although honestly I find them kinder and gentler than most. When I was working I had a Mormon supervisor; he was such a kind, generous and supportive man.
I wonder if that might not imply they carried the Platonic concept of reincarnation with them, although he post-dated "ancient" Egypt.)
