Some believe at John 9: 1, 2 (John 9: 1, 2 read).Wondered if unborn child could have sinned, they believed in scriptures and never teaches reincarnation. Jesus answered (John 9: 3). Knew we are offspring of Adam, inherit sin and imperfection, just an imperfection.

Rebirth cycles virtually endless. Bible says soul is complete person. If person may have done badly in past, if he repents and changes, Jehovah will forgive. When he dies, nothing survives. Death- deep, dreamless sleep. Will be a resurrection. NOT a reincarnation because it is bringing back to life, the same personality. Sickness,...
