What does the Bible teach about re-incarnation?

Re-incarnation is based upon two premises, neither of which are true. First: human beings purify themselves through their own righteous acts. Second: There is an immortal soul which survives bodily death.

The Bible teaches that salvation is through faith in Christ. (Eph. 2:8, Rom. 3.24-31) Death is a sleep until the glorious resurrection (1 Thess. 4:15, 16, 1 Cor. 15:51, 54). There is no second chance after death (Heb. 9:27). Now is the time for salvation (2 Cor. 6:2).
