Then why would you think I am somehow trying to keep you (as if I can) from bringing your thoughts here and have the freedom to tell them ?
I may not agree with you but I dont think of you as sitting there telling me to just shut up and holding my hand back from typing my opinions on here
So why do you think thats what I am trying to do ?
I am merely giving everyone else an ALTERNATE way of looking at these NDEs .
Other than the lets take it at face value as being from God and thats that .
Because in the spiritual world you and I both know things are not that black and white ..And that things may not be as they APPEAR to be ..

From what I recall...we began a discussion on 'how one knows that they are not misleading others'.
You made a comment that said something to the nature of you 'hating' that I feel the need to tell my mother my thoughts on my faith. Actually it
came off more as that you felt like I was forcing my belief on a vulnerable woman (who is my mom). Sorry...I might of took a little offense to
that...for I know I have best intentions for my mother. That would be like me telling you...."I hate the fact that you feel the need to lead your
mother in the idea that she must believe in Jesus". I would never say such a thing to anyone.
Hate is a strong word...if both people are 'welcoming' the others thoughts.
You pretty much keep calling me out as the 'satan' since I am what your book warns you of.
So yes, I know I have the right....but its a little impossible to have a discourse with another when they 'hate' what I do. Especially concerning
what I do within my family, who is very precious to me Simply. Do you really think I would carelessly pass on my difference of opinion to my mother if
she didnt welcome it through ope discussions with me? Do you not think she gives her own opinion back to me along with her reasons? There is nothing
to 'hate' here, my mother is precious to me, she has fought a hard battle in this life. She is a good thinker and knows her Bible...I am lucky to
have a mother that will discourse with me in this way.
You talk as if I force my opinion of faith on my mother...as if its not a two way street. Time and time again...I told you your thoughts were welcome
and I continued in the talk with you. Surely you dont get that upset with others around you that dont see your way? Do you really think that just
because someone has had a belief for 30 years makes them right? You yourself should know better then that....you keep naming other religions that MUST
be false...and I am sure there are plenty of those people that held their beliefs that differ then yours for their entire life time.
I guess what made me ask for the same welcoming of thoughts as I asked of you was I felt you get very defensive in my personal ways with my family. Im
not some beast holding a force over my mother. Every time you and I get in a discussion...you ignore questions I ask you and most of the time, I am
only offering the same questions you asked me, back to you.
So how do you know that you are not following in the wrong way?
How do you know that you are not misleading others?
We can try this again....
How do you know Simply...that Jesus's teachings were copied in their fullness to be passed on to us? How do you know that the OT teachings are from
God and not mans own Earthly ways of living?
How do you test things through the Spirit?
