The Law of Return

"And come out, those who have done good will rise to live, and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned." Jesus (John, 5:29)

In rare passages of the Gospel the law of reincarnation appears as clearly as this one here, in the lesson that Jesus presents on the resurrection of the condemnation.

How would the theologians, who are interested in the existence of a burning and eternal Hell, understand these words?

Individuals dedicated to righteousness will find the fountain of life bathing in the waters of corporeal death. Their realizations of the future continue in justifiable ascent directly along with the persevering efforts that they developed on their sanctifying spiritual path. Still, those that are complacent about evil cancel their very own possibility of resurrection in the light.

They are obliged to repeat the expiatory course.

It is the return to the lesson or to the remedy.

No other alternative exists.

The law of the return, then, is clearly contained in that synthesis of Jesus.

Resurrection is reappearance. The understanding of renovation does not correspond to the theory of eternal sorrows.

In the summary and definite sentence there is no recourse to salvation. But by the reference made by Jesus, we observe that Divine Providence is much richer and magnanimous than it appears.

There will be a resurrection for all, except that, those who are righteous, will have it in a new life, and those that are evil, in a new condemnation, as a consequence of their reprehensible behavior.
