Reincarnation in the New Testament?

11:13 All of these died in faith without having received the promises, but from a distance they saw and greeted them. They confessed that they were strangers and foreigners on the earth,

11:14 for people who speak in this way make it clear that they are seeking a homeland.

11:15 If they had been thinking of the land that they had left behind, they would have had opportunity to return.

11:16 But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; indeed, he has prepared a city for them.

Wow. That's stretching it a bit. They would have had an opportunity to return to the land they left behind -- this doesn't speak anything about death and coming back as another living being.

I find it disturbing that some try to explain away very clear Biblical instruction regarding homosexuality, and at the same time, try to retrofit new age ideas and eastern mysticism into Scripture.

It's trying to make the Bible modernly politically correct, when the reality of Scripture is just the opposite: God's Word is both timeless and has no regard for the ever-changing opinions of men.
