Do you believe in Beincarnation?

I heard this creative term a number of years ago and it’s never left me.

Similar to my post on tantric preaching, beincarnation co-opts another traditionally ‘Eastern’ term – Reincarnation. I’ll assume that’s okay since Jesus was an eastern teacher…

Reincarnation is driven by the cosmic judgment of your deeds in this life. Every person is in karmic bondage with a soul that longs for liberation from this world. It is cyclical in nature until you are disconnected from all desires and reach nirvana. In this heaven-like state you are finally transformed, at peace, and no longer subject to human suffering.

Be-incarnation is a response to the incarnation of Christ. Transformation begins in this life, not the next. Beincarnation is where followers of Jesus become the hands, and feet, and voice of Christ. Beincarnation is where our own unique identity and the character of Christ converge.

With Beincarnation the goal is not to leave this world, but to bind ourselves to it, as we take upon human suffering and become bringers of peace in this life. Beincarnation is not a suppression of desires, but an unleashing of passion, shaped by Jesus.

Be Incarnation. Be.incarnation. What are you waiting for?

    Thanks Hope! It’s been brewing in my mind for quite a while now. Beincarnation is just about as creative as sintimacy!
