It’s all happened before...
There’s no dead atheists.
They know the end is near.
Obama’s Amerika — proof positive that hell exists.
And the “visions” tend to correlate with whatever the person was trained to believe in. Like that kid whose book sold well last year or so, who “saw” a blonde-hair, blue-eyed Jesus.
We scientists are a religious lot. As Einstein used to say in talking of the existence of God, “God does not roll dice.”
It is appointed unto man once to die, then the judgement.
<”And the stories offer similar proofs”>
And the stories were all deception...amid drugs and vivid imaginations.
I love reading things like this. People who believe in Heaven, but not Hell, or Heaven, but not God, are cowards. They want all of the beauty that faith brings, but not any of the responsibilities. Their stance is, “I’m going to Heaven whatever I do and no one judges me for anything”
I have to ask these people if they believe they’ll meet Ted Bundy and Hitler in Heaven. Their disbelief in God is usually grounded in “rationality”, yet they find belief in Heaven to be perfectly reasonable.
In the end, these people are what’s known as “cowardly atheists”, and I am related to a few of them. They embrace atheist disbelief in divinity to avoid having to subject themselves to any kind of objective right and wrong, however unlike Dawkins and other members of the hardcore elite, they just cannot bring themselves to the logical conclusion of their beliefs. That when they die, that’s all there is. They will never see their dead loved ones ever again, because humans are just bags of meat.
I can’t help but shake my head at people like this. They eat from both sides of the plate.
The facts are these. There is a Heaven. There is a Hell. Our actions in this life determine where we shall end up.
No one ever mentions their dead pets in these NDEs. I’ve always wondered about that.
This article states that none of the books talk about hell. I read one by a college professor from KY who ‘died’ in Paris, in which he was being dragged to hell by a host of demons before being saved. Can’t remember the name, but it was much better than the Mary Neal book I just finished.
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
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.
I am not an atheist or denier of an afterlife, but a near-death experience is not a death experience.
