Incarnation or eternal life?

When I was in college, I had numerous non-stop seizures. The doctors administered medication, causing my blood pressure to drop to the point where my heart stopped. For about a minute, I flatlined. The idea of death doesn’t scare me, what scares me is where I may end up because I didn’t choose the right path. If we chose the life of in-between, we would never make the right decisions to please God. Only the world.

Many people who I have come across over the years often have posing questions about life, death, suffering, the big bad, scary world. I love a good and challenging question. It makes me question everything in itself. Literally like the movie Deception. There is such thing as a question in a question in itself but unlike Deception, there’s almost an answer to everything, if not a solution if it required action.

Someone recently mentioned about the past life. Past life means: a hypothetical existence prior to the present one, esp. For those believing in reincarnation; a previous incarnation 

Hinduism strongly believes based on your previously life, it will be judged and then you return as something highly respected or less. For example: a fly is not well respected and often is killed. 

Someone said the Catholic church believes in the past life or reincarnation. Whoever said this, did not read the Bible thoroughly. One of the few things I believe Catholics miss out on. Jesus just didn’t die on the cross and ended there, he resurrected with the point of having a continuing relationship with you. Even Jesus said he would be with us as the Holy Spirit after his death. You can only die once, after facing judgement (Hebrews 9:27). There are cases where we can be kept on hold (this is only however, mentioned in Maccabees). 

We must be reminded that Jesus died also, to have eternal life. We have a choice to make. We can choose to live a life where it’s self-willed. But choosing the life of God’s will, we have a choice to live with our eternal Father. We were given free-will for a reason, but we must choose wisely. (Romans 6:23)

I can’t speak  for you, but I don’t just chose life, I chose the eternal life. What about you?
