AGNOSTIC NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES

AGNOSTIC: a person who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God or of anything beyond material phenomena; a person who claims neither faith nor disbelief in God.

AS TO THE GODS, I HAVE NO MEANS OF KNOWING EITHER THAT THEY EXIST OR DO NOT EXIST.• PROTAGORAS  410BC 

Are there NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE in which an agnostic encountered God? 

Dr. Atwater is an international authority on near- death states as well as a person who experienced near death. She is one of the original researchers in the field of near-death studies, having begun her work in 1978. More than 3,000 people are registered at her discussion form site, and we understand that they have one of the largest databases on near death experiences in the world.

Where arguments arise amongst various people and groups is over the interpretation of that light and any form it make take, and how to regard it.

Scientists say it is endorphins; Muslims say it is fantasy; religious fundamentalists of any “stripe” say it is Satan (Lucifer). People of faith say it is either of God or of emissaries from God.

WHAT ARE NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES?

Numerous people, who experience near death, see figures and forms in the light. These are variously described as angels, guides, guardians, light beings (beings made entirely of light), religious figures, high holy ones and often kids call them “the people.”

The vast majority of individuals remain consistent overtime with what they say and do not distort original narratives. That means accusations of New Age jargon, religious prophesy, Christian visions, Western indulgences, or the like, are untrue.

WHICH IS MORE RATIONAL?

If everyone in society lived in an agnostic world, we would all be in trouble. In the words of the famous historian Will Durant, “There is no significant example in history, before our time, of a society successfully maintaining moral life without the aid of religion.”  You will not find a secular ethic capable of sustaining in the long run a society of strong communities and families on the one hand, altruism, virtue, self-restraint, honor, obligation and trust on the other.

THE HAPPY AGNOSTIC

I suppose the world seems to offer much of what you want yet it is in conflict with living a consistent Christian lifestyle.

You may be a happy agnostic whose only concern is to fulfill whatever desire you want within your ability to do so.

There is just one problem. You probably watch the news and praise your own desire to stay informed on the goings on in the world. However, do you not see that the world is a complete mess. Evil and greed seemed rampant and there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight. 

Maybe you should open yourself up to spiritual questions and began seeking answers. Check out the blog about: The Case for Christby Lee Strobel, a former atheist and investigative reporter.

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU

HINDUISM CHRISTIANITY

A LIFE AND DEATH SITUATION

” I love you.

The person who honors Me and lives with Me I will save.

Do not think that anyone is automatically saved when he or she dies. Each person receives what his or her conduct deserves.

If you have journeyed with Me and you have accepted Me as your friend, I will certainly bring you with Me when your life on earth is over.

If you have rejected Me and followed the road traced out by the evil one, you will go where Satan lives.

My dear people, as long as you live on earth, you are on trial. You are either working for your salvation or your condemnation.

You are in a life and death situation. Your conduct shows which path you have chosen.

My grace and My power are always there to help you if you ask for them. I truly desire your salvation but I cannot force it on you.

Therefore, you are free to choose but remember your choice has great consequences. You can only choose for Me or against Me.

There is no third way. I await your choice every day.

The above messages came to Father Melvin Doucette:

Fr. Melvin Doucette was ordained to the priesthood on and joined the Missionaries of Africa for 29 years in Africa. In contemplative prayer every morning, Fr. Doucette receives by interior locution “messages from heaven” to share with the public.

A Distinctive Human SoulHuman Soul Sikhism

It is the distinctive human soul that is the foundation of his unique dignity. It is the reason why we humans possess “certain unalienable rights” as our founding fathers rightly said in our Declaration of Independence. Reincarnation either reduces men to the level of animals, or raises animals to the level of humans with “rights” with spiritual souls. Does that make any sense? I believe it only to be wishful thinking.

Reincarnation only signals “the desire to escape the consequences of one’s life choices and modern stress.” The belief in reincarnation expresses the human “inexpressible longing to live forever.”

It fails to make the essential distinction between men and animals. Human beings alone are created in the image and likeness of God; and therefore, possess rational and spiritual souls: a human person is a body/soul composite.

Consider a person alleged to have reincarnated; would the person have been himself or someone else, or partly himself and partly someone else? Of course, either alternative is illogical. A human person is a UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL BEING with a spiritual soul and a material body.

Reincarnation only signals “the desire to escape the consequences of one’s life choices and modern stress.” The belief in reincarnation expresses the human “inexpressible longing to live forever.”

Why is this Extremely Dangerous?

How opposite is this to our Lord’s teaching in the form of his words to the “rich man”, when God said to him, “Fool! This night your soul is required of you… So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”                                                                       Luke 12:20-21

What if you descend into what you might call hell: a descent into each person’s customized human misery, ignorance, and darkness of not-knowing, which would seem like a miserable eternity.

One should rather live one’s life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn’t, than live one’s life as if there isn’t, and die to find out there is.                                                                                                Unknown author

Sikhism Pascal's Wager

Pascal’s Wager appeals to the instinct for self-preservation, the desire to be happy and not unhappy. Suppose a winning sweepstakes ticket is worth a million dollars, and there are only two tickets left. You know that one of them is the winning ticket, while the other is worth nothing, and you are allowed to buy only one of the two tickets, at random. Would it be a good investment to spend a dollar on the good chance of winning a million?

It is therefore the height of folly not to “bet” on HEAVEN or possible HELL, even if you have no certainty, no proof, no guarantee that your bet will win. Reincarnation is a terrible bet. It gives you no chance of winning the prize: HEAVEN. Heaven is our true destiny, but the choice is ours.

Life after Death

We are like ships that need to get home. The ship of life is moving along the waters of time, and there comes a point of no return, when our fuel runs out, when it is too late. And there comes a time when there are no more tomorrows. Saying “maybe” and “perhaps tomorrow” cannot continue indefinitely because life does not continue indefinitely.

You are already committed [embarked]. We are not outside observers of life, but participants. You must wager. There is no choice.

Let us weigh up the gain and the loss involved in calling heads that HEAVEN exists. Let us assess the two cases: if you win, you win everything: if you lose, you lose nothing. Do not hesitate then: wager that HEAVEN does exist.

You should be much more afraid of being mistaken and then finding out that Christianity is true than of being mistaken in believing it to be true. If you believe too much, you neither win nor lose eternal happiness. But if you believe too little, you risk losing everything.

Is the best yet to come?

The Mouse’s Search for the Cat

There is a mountain analogy: the roads go up, not down; that man makes the roads, not God; that religion is man’s search for God, not God’s search for man.  C. S. Lewis says this sounds like “the mouse’s search for the cat”.

Confucianism

Christianity is not a system of man’s search for God but a story of God’s search for man.  True religion is not like a cloud of incense wafting up from special spirits into the nostrils of a waiting God, but like a Father’s hand thrust downward to rescue the fallen. 

 

 

ASTONISHING PREDICTIONS

God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions  show a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17  (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE. 

DIVINE OR HUMAN CALIPHS

The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.

CHINA DECEASED RELATIVES

Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.

CHINA AND THE HOLY SPIRIT

In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family.  The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ.  No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.

PROOF OF HEAVEN 2

Is the BIBLE true? 2

The Word of God: came to us from the Bible

In the beginning God made from nothing the heavens and the earth.”                                                                                                           Genesis 1:1

“He made from one blood all nations who live on the earth. He set the times and places where they should live. They were to look for God. Then they might feel after Him and find Him because He is not far from each one of us. It is in Him that we live and move and keep on living.”                                                                                    Acts 17:26-28

 “The heavens are telling of the greatness of God and the great open spaces above show the work of His hands.”             Psalm 19:1

”Lord, You have been the place of comfort for all people of all time. Before the mountains were born, before You gave birth to the earth and the world, forever and ever, You are God.”   Psalm 90:1, 2

“The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’”                        Psalm 14:1

THE FALSE PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGION

Here is a passage that comes from a BIBLE ABOUT RELIGION:

 “See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and vain deceit, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.” Colossians 2:8

Let’s analyze this more closely:

 See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception [pseudo-intellectual babble], according to the tradition [and musings] of mere men, following the elementary principles of this world, rather than following [the truth—the teachings of] Christ.                                                                  Colossians 2:8

So, one should not accept philosophy of mere speculation and imagination, but of the modest, laborious investigation of facts.

Vain Deceit is, that which is vain and empty, and has no solid foundation, and even deceitful and delusional.

Christianity is not a philosophy, but a relationship with God in Christ TODAYnot knowledge of abstract principles.

How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus. 

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN?

god proof

  • Christians don’t shout, “I live a clean life!” Christians whisper “I feel  lost, but now God found me and God forgives me.” 
  • Christians don’t speak with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
  • Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they try to be strong because they need strength. 
  • Christians don’t brag about success, but they admit that they fail and they need God to clean the mess.
  • Christians don’t claim to be perfect, but God still believes in them.
  • Christians still feel the sting of pain. They have their share of headaches but they still call upon His Name.
  • Christians are not holier than others. They are simple sinners who receive God’s unbelievable Grace.

Christianity on a Table Napkin:

Deliverance EVIL SPIRITS

“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”                                                                                                                                     Romans 10:9

The real Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. He was send by God to come to the earth in the body of a human being. That was, so that He could suffer in the flesh, and take all our sins upon Himself and die in our place. He rose from the dead and lives to pray for us daily.
He is the Savior – The angel announced to Mary; …and you shall call His name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins.     Matthew 1:21  It means He has the power to free us, save us and deliver us from sin. He is merciful and has the power to forgive. He brings good news to the poor, heals the heart-broken, announce freedom to all captives, pardons all prisoners. He comforts mourners. He has healing in His hands.
To receive Jesus as your Savior… SAY:

Lord Jesus, You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Please hear me today and help me! I want to receive You as my Lord and Savior. Be Lord of my life!  Lord Jesus, I believe that You died for me and that God raised You from the dead. Forgive me all my sins and take all my sins away. Come into my heart and be my Savior and Lord, and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Amen

Your life will begin to change in an amazing way. Without expecting  anything, be sensitive to any dreams or visions. 

God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will begin.  “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.”                                                     Luke 1: 49

Are we not like Barabbas who was justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”?  And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost, like you.

“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool”.                                       Isaiah 1:18

You may need some counseling with a pastor, priest or competent Christian worker, who will introduce you to a Short Course on Who is Jesus? Start by reading a short biography of Jesus in  the Gospel of Luke. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verse upon arising.  He will defend you from attacks of the enemy when you ask Him.

One thought on “AGNOSTIC NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES”

  1. As ‘agnostics’ (from Greek: a- “not” (see a- (3)) + gnostos “(to be) known,” from PIE root *gno- “to know.”) we simply admit what we don’t know. We may feel, think or perceive certain patterns, but we allow for what we don’t know. ‘God’ (from PIE *ghut- “that which is invoked” (source also of Old Church Slavonic zovo “to call,” Sanskrit huta- “invoked,”). First Nations seeing our ‘religious’ (Latin ‘religio’ = ‘to-relate’) division & dilemma as economic-ecological refugee settlers from war-torn oligarch controlled Europe, invited us to join them in their own no-assumptions agnosticism with the terms, “Great-Spirit” (‘respire’ = ‘to breathe’) or “Great-Mystery”. Further they invited us to join them in their Multihome-dwelling-complex communities (eg Longhouse-apartment, Pueblo-townhouse & Kanata-village), for real-life sharing, caring & loving in inclusive economic welcome. No abstracts, icons, images, altars, priests, books, holy-days etc to submit to, just everyday caring for & sharing with each other. https://sites.google.com/site/indigenecommunity/relational-economy
