It seems incredible to me that anyone could profess to be a Christian and yet believe in reincarnation. However such people do exist. Here is a post I read in a Christian forum by one who claimed he was a Christian.
Was John the Baptist really Elijah? If so, does that mean reincarnation is a biblically backed position? What do you make of these passages—
11 Jesus replied, “To be sure, Elijah comes and will restore all things. 12 But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to him everything they wished. In the same way the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands.” 13 Then the disciples understood that he was talking to them about John the Baptist.
