Re: What is "Saved" from a NDE Perspective


Where to begin, oh where to begin.....

Rudi, have read a few of your posts over several months but for some reason have really gotten into them the past few days.  Read your journey Parts I through V.  Your vivid descriptions of what you experienced and your feelings and beliefs regarding them are a healing to anyone reading them.  Please continue to keep your keyboard and happy fingers going.

I too was raised to believe that anyone who didn't believe as I was taught was wrong with all the hell and damnation ramifications that go with it yet at the same time knew that I was "wrong" because I was also very imperfect.  It has taken quite a few years and lots of meditation to come to a very similar view of Christianity that you have posted above.  Your response is outstanding.  You so smoothly point to the passage where Jesus said that men are gods, and that's one of my favorites of his teachings.  Yet those who project the "only begotten" mantra at me deny it and say it is out of context, which it isn't.  You obviously know your bible and the difficulties with Greek and Hebrew, and that's why I like some of the passages of the NT that are translated by Kenneth Wuest - a professor emeritus of NT Greek at Moody Bible Institute.  He jumps through hoops trying to get a "correct" interpretation of the NT and his John 3:16 passage reads "...uniquely begotten son" and not "...only begotten."  Thought I'd pass that on.  He's not the only one to translate it that way.

I like Gandhi's writings and philosophy a lot, although I too am a Christian.  My parents hated him (they lived at the same time he did) and called him a devil.  Yet he read the Christian bible from end to end, read "The Kingdom of God is Within You" by Tolstoy, and used it as his road map for his non-violent opposition to Great Britain.  If I remember right he even said: "I am Hindu, Muslim, Christian and Jew" - and I believe him.

I served in combat in Korea and it has taken me many years to grieve not only for the men on "our" side, but also the Chinese who bled and died around me - just like men in my unit.  They too are children of god.  They too experience love and compassion from friends and relatives just like we do.  They too went into combat like I did programmed by the elite to kill in the name of some kind of almighty patriotism that in fact has no real meaning when viewed from the perspective of the all loving god, regardless how you view that entity.

I love your posts.
