I am not sure where this goes so I am going to try here.
I am in a public speaking classes and one person, during a persuasive speech, was trying to convince us of a pre-existence. She explained it as a place where our soul is basically waiting in line go get down to earth. She quoted some scripture passages like,“before you were born I knew you” as evidence.
She also said that the early Christians and Jews believed in this and that it continued until the Council of Constantinople, which condemned it. I also couldn’t anything that said that the either of the councils of Constantinople condemned it.
Thoughts on this would be appreciated and, if the catholic church is against it, ways to defend against this.
