From pre Emmanuel (Jesus) until about 350 AD

reincarnation was taught and accepted. Death wasn't as feared and a burning Hell wasn't known. That was all changed by design to gain control over man and money, by established churches. If one truly belies that the Father God is within each of us, and each lifetime is an opportunity to become closer to God, then he has no fear of death and will not cower before any man. The churches support TPTB because fearful and confused people will take solace in believing that Christ will save them and follow church doctrine without question, giving that church money that they can't always afford to give, hoping for salvation. This is the power that churches have, and they cling to that power, Truth-be-damned.
