    What I never understood about reincarnation is that if people are reincarnated over and over, and it seems everyone has a past life or two, or three, then how is it that there are a heck of a lot more people now? Wouldn't most souls be new? How can all these people claim to have past lives? There were not that many people in the past. Do souls split up? Are there 2000 versions of Abraham Lincoln's soul walking around today or something?

    Most of the people alive now were obviously lower life forms in prior lives. I mean, all of those Democrats had to come from SOMEwhere.

    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    But if you read the popular accounts most of them were royalty in their past lives.
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

    The most popular videos on YouTube profile two boys who recall memories of being a poor African American woman and a WWII pilot. You think demons did this?

    Not necessarily. They could just be making everything up to get attention.
