To Hell and Back

Written by Christianity and the Confusion on March 13th, 2011

This video hosted by Dr. Maurice Rawlings, a noted cardiologist, investigates life after death and his experiences with patients that actually saw 'the other side!' It is thought provoking and worth the watching, unfortunately for those without broadband that may not be possible. The video is 89 minutes long, but well worth the watch.

    I think we somehow see what we want to see in a NDE … they seem to be dreamlike. Meditators in trances don't always experience bliss either. Medieval Irish monks often made trips to Hell.

    Thank you for posting this, it easy to say that you don't believe in God when everything is going great — that all changes when death is facing you. Jesus is the only hope, all the New Age Feel Good 21 century religion won't get the job done. It doesn't matter how many good deeds or Hail Marys that you do or say, without a personal relationship with Jesus all that you can look forward to is Hell on earth and Hell afterwards. Most Churches don't talk about Hell any more, but it's a fact and people need to wake up.

       What if this is all true? What if there really is a Heaven and a Hell? What if Jesus really came to reunite us with God, thus overcoming the Original Sin which separated us from God? I know these are all big what ifs; and all that I offer is a lot of questions and few answers, but then isn't that just like life?

    What is important is this

    We should support the rights of people to believe in Original Sin, Jesus being a god, resurrecting, and killing everyone in the End Times. I support their freedom. What I oppose is the desire of the Christian Fundamentalists to impose their deviant form of Christianity on all of the rest of us. I oppose their action and rhetoric to enact laws establishing a Theocracy, opposing Gay Marriage, hostility toward science, hostility to women's rights, and opposition to personal freedom.
    They can believe in whatever rubbish in which they have been brainwashed by meme induction. They have a right to believe in that. I have a duty to join them in defending their freedom to beliefs that I personally abhor.
    I only wish that American Fundamentalists respected the rights of other Americans to not believe in Christian Fundamentalism or to not believe in any religion. However, too many of them still claim that despite the Secular Humanistic US Constitution and Bill of Rights, the USA is a “Christian Nation” (i.e. a Theocracy.)
    What ifs are fun to speculate upon. Imaginative speculation is the most honest way to consider them. Those who take them literally are too often poised to kill, harass, or legislate against those whose beliefs are different.

    Each in his/her own Making

    Along the lines of what Baruch said, each experiences their own “Making” in an NDE. For christians that would be heaven or hell. For the Norse, the great hall of Valhalla waiting for Ragnarok. For the Gael it would be very individual and somehow blend into the greater conciousness of creation. Others will have their own experience according to their own Makings. But, they are still NEAR Death Experiences…they did not die.
    There really is a heaven and hell…if that is what you Make. As a christian, you should have no questions about it if you believe the bible. The true christians I know have no doubts about it at all, and no questions to answer along those lines. A “christian” with those kinds of doubts and questions is a pagan on the wrong path.

    Amergin: I think you are saying that the reality of Heaven and Hell is a subjective state in the human mind. Your world view is what you make it. I disagree with your versions of true Christian. To me a true Christian is one who follows the teachings of Jesus on the Mount, the wisdom of Jesus the philosopher, the morality of Jesus the rabbi, and the compassion of Jesus the Humanist.
    Unfortunately the false Christians have ignored the real Jesus and his message. The False Christians have placed all of their credibility and integrity on the process of Apotheosis (the deification of Jesus into a Pagan God, Christ.) The worship of Jesus as an Idol has driven followers away from the message of Jesus.
    I don't like the term Christian because it has nothing to do with Jesus or his teachings. Christian implies worship of a god-man or deified human. Fundamentalists openly admit that salvation is simply blind worship of a Jesus Idol and nothing to do with moral behaviour, goodness, or avoiding bad behaviour.
    The early followers of Jesus should not be debased by applying the Christian term to them. Jesus followers were Jews and some Pagans who adopted his higher moral code. That great message was almost destroyed when the Constantinian and Theodosian Christian Cults of the 4th and 5th Centuries almost exterminated the Ebionites, Nazerites, Essenes, Gnostics, and Arians in their effort to make the Empire a brutal Theocracy. But the Theodosian/Athanasian Religion is PAGAN. The Paganisation of Jesus Religion and Apotheosis of Jesus produced an Imperial Cult that Jesus would never support.
