An Interesting Discussion With a Heathen


Because many of the conversations logged at this website revolve around CHRISTIANITY and the various tenets of that faith, we supposed it might be interesting to pose a number of questions to a heathen acquaintance.

We were NOT disappointed–though we did NOT agree, of course, with many of the beliefs the man gave us.

The discussion only lasted about ten minutes, but a LOT of information we did not previously know was exchanged.

The discussion went a little like this.

“So you believe in reincarnation?  I mean you REALLY do believe in that story?

“Absolutely.  Reincarnation is a return to Godhead for us.”

“So you don’t see it as a long, long series of do-overs?”

“Not at all.  You see, each person’s memory is wiped clean after each life here on earth. No one remembers their previous lives.”

“So, it’s not a do-over  if you can’t remember it?”

“If you have no memory of what happened in a previous life, there can be no “do-over”, as you call it.”


“And you do not have to return after your life is lived as a person.  You might come back as a snail or a bird.”

“Or, as one of those flies which buzz around your head in the summer?”

“You could come back as a fly.  It all depends on how well you’ve lived your last life.”

“I’m not really the one to be answering all of these questions, anyway.”

“What do you mean?”

“I’m tired and not thinking as clearly as I should to be to have this conversation.”

“I guess what I wanted to say to you is: IF you don’t get it right the first dozen times, you can always come back for more?!?!”

“NOW, that’s one thing you have to get right!”

“What’s that?”

“You can achieve the height of spiritual perfection the first or second time around.  You don’t have to keep trying if you already have it right.”

“I’m not sure I knew that.”

“Most people don’t.”

…And that is how the short–but INTERESTING–conversation came about.

That the man believed in Eastern mysticism was just another shiny bauble for readers to look at while pondering what was said.

[NOTE: ‘Interesting’ is NOT the same thing as ‘correct.’]

HAS the reader EVER considered religions with an Eastern ‘outlook’?

HAS the reader EVER considered CAREFULLY what each was professing?

It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
