I Must Admit That I Am a Believer, Too...I also believe in reincarnation. We are put here to learn, and with each lesson, we better ourselves. I also believe that we choose to be here and with whom we experience life. As far as innocent people suffering, I believe these souls chose to endure their suffering before birth. For example, a soul may be born into a mentally retarded body, because the soul is advanced and elected to do this. The parents, or caregivers, may have needed to learn a particular lesson as part of their development. Perhaps there was no other way for these individuals to learn such lessons. Think about it...a person must develop a lot of patience when faced with providing care for such an individual. If any of this conflicts with your Biblical understanding, remember that the Catholics extracted many gnostic writings from the Bible, including those that regarded reincarnation.
