Memory and Claims of Recollection of Previous Lives
Nothing is more central to Christian faith and hope than the belief and expectation that through the power of Christ we, too, shall rise after death and sooner or later assume a new and more ‘glorious’ body. This resurrection body, however ‘glorified’, is to stand in the same relation to ‘me’ as does my present one. Such is the universal testimony of the mainstream of Christian orthodoxy and clearly follows Paul’s teaching. Both death and resurrection are realities for the Christian.
