None of them were resurrected by an act of faith (either by themselves or of others), by God Himself, nor a Miracle performed by Jesus.
They “said” they died, man-made machines may have “said” they died - perhaps they were even resuscitated by men. That is not to say they were yet “dead”.
The spiritual realm is constantly trying to communicate with us on this Earth. The story being told is not what we were told in Sunday school or in ancient times.
That is an interesting comment but one that is true. Christians rarely talk about hell any longer. It's almost as if they're embarrassed by the topic. But it is a fact that our Lord Jesus talked more of hell than He did of heaven. For those who are interested: Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God
Ah, then I merely misunderstood what you were getting at.
And if they are in rebellion, then it only makes sense they would wish to spread disinformation.
I would be interested in a NDE account by a person who verifyably had not been previously exposed to any organized religion. I did read a book once called, I believe, 13 minutes in hell. It was about a man whose NDE wasn’t about a heavenly experience, but of the pure anguish and existence void of God in hell. Scary book.
I don’t wanna go tot he afterlife, I wanna hang around as a ghost and haunt all of the liberals...
At least for a few thousand years....
Ok... If that is so, why did we need Lucifer?
There IS an afterlife, but IMO what you want out of it goes a long way towards predicting what you'll get out of it. No proof, just my opinion.
Someone had a pet butterfly.
Hopefully all sentient beings are there.
“No one ever mentions their dead pets in these NDEs.”
Sure they do. All the time. Don’t you listen to George Noory?
Widow of Nain’s son? Jairus’s daughter?
I’m not familiar with him
I believe. I’ve read the books by George Anderson and went with a colleague to see John Edwards once in one of his performances. Edwards contacted this colleague’s deceased father and told him things that Edwards had no way of knowing - such as that the father spoke in tongues at church when he was alive.
After my best friend (not the colleague mentioned above) was murdered, his family and I went to a psychic. The psychic said that my deceased friend wanted his family to have the $100 dollars that he had hidden in his room. His room was locked and we had to climb in through a window, but the $100 bill was right where we were told to find it.
My friend’s spirit also told the psychic to tell us to forgive his murderer and to feel compassion for him.
For anyone who may be interested read the book that started me becoming interested in the NDE’S phenomenon. “Return From Tomorrow”, written by Dr. E. Gorden Ritchie while he had an NDE during basic training in WWII.
I am not an atheist or denier of an afterlife, but a near-death experience is not a death experience.
Here are a few:
Acts 9:36-41 - Peter raises Tabitha
Luke 7:11-16 - Nain’s Son
Mark 5:35-43 Jairus’ Sick Daughter
II Ki 4:20-37 - A Resurrection by prophet Elisha
That's right OWS, I was not speaking of REAL Miracles or Biblical resurrections - just the topic of "after death experiences".
