Aaron Hernandez was and still is a mystery, even at the young age of twenty-seven. Over the past twenty-four hours more details have emerged surrounding the days and hours leading up to Aaron’s suicide.
According to CBS Boston, Hernandez told an inmate the night before his death that, “When you die your soul gets reincarnated.” According to other sources, Aaron seemed more spiritual in the days leading up to his suicide.
In fact, Aaron was said to have been found with the words from John 3:16 written on his forehead.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
The words were allegedly written in red marker. Yet, there is also the report that Aaron drew symbols associated with the secret society, called the Illuminati, on his wall and even spelled out their name in capital letters. If this is true, then there was obviously some kind of struggle going on with Aaron. I’d like to say he won, but suicide doesn’t seem much like a winning move. However, it is a forgivable sin. The only sin that isn’t forgivable is not believing in Christ as the savior, which is a sin against the Holy Spirit.
It is my belief that Aaron, because he believed in Jesus Christ, is with the angels. However, Aaron is not coming back reincarnated. While it is easy to believe in reincarnation (I did at one point), it simply doesn’t happen.
I’m not saying that it is impossible since anything is possible with God. What I’m saying is that reincarnation is not part of salvation. If it was, if we had chance after chance to get it right, there would be no need for Jesus to have died for our sins. He would have simply come back and explained how reincarnation our path to reincarnation. But he didn’t. He never even mentions it.
We only get one shot at this life, one shot to embrace Christ and live on faith of God’s promise that he “has more in store for you than you can even imagine”– Ephesians 3:20
