I have struggled with some Kardecists about faith and religion. One of the arguments in favor of reincarnation that I’ve heard a lot and very little or nothing about how refute it are the verses in Matthew 17 in which Jesus, brought some of his disciples to a mountain, seeing Elijah and Moses. The biggest problem here for me is the interpretation of that verse:
“Then the disciples saw that he was talking to them of John the Baptist.”
They primarily use this passage to force the argument of reincarnation, which, of course, is not acceptable to us Catholics. They say that John the Baptist is Elijah reincarnated etc. What better interpretation and response I can give to these interpretations? How can I effectively combat the arguments of kardecism and how can I promote an apologetic fairly consistent about that? Where I live there is a great amount of people from kardecism or who mix Catholicism with those beliefs, so there is a great need I do have of knowing the enemy to fight him. Thank you all, peace and well!
