Was Reincarnation Deleted From The Bible?

Above is a video with serious problem. The presupposition is that at best the Biblical texts that we have have been edited or at worst whole books have been left out. I totally disagree. The thought that there is edited and redacted versions of the 66 books that now make up the Bible is borne out of not knowing or understanding how the Bible has been transmitted and translated through time. I'd suggest reading The King James Only Controversy by James R White as a start. As for the apocryphal Old and New Testament texts, we know that they are forgeries and often conflict with the cannon that we do have.  For those who think that this point is not important, please pray-tell, what you think is a contradiction in the 66 books? Good luck with finding one. There aren't any.  Are there discrepancies between books that cannot easily be understood from a surface level? Yes. But they don't equal contradictions with history, facts, or logic. Disagree? Go ahead and cite some things you think are issues and we can  examine them.  A good rule of thumb to see if an ancient manuscript should be considered scripture is to see if it fits the criteria:

 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, - 2 Timothy 3:16

Every one of the 66 books in the cannon fit in these criteria.
