The Contemporary, More Positive View of Death
Brad’s Letter to William…
I’m deeply sorry you had to endure the tragic loss of your grandfather, but it’s something we all have to suffer through in this life…a sad reality of this existence. However, the modern world knows new positive things about death that weren’t known when the bible was published.
I want you to consider that medical science has positively changed our perspective of death. For 1700 years, the social view of death has been our dead-end on earth, with the soul facing the eternal consequences of judgment. This acceptance has psychologically marred us with a dark, macabre sense of death, but that’s changing. Since Dr. Raymond Moody discovered the “Near Death Experience,” in 1975, the world view has changed to accepting that we enter a serene and blissful light with departed friends and RELATIVES! (grandfathers, too!) welcoming us, and helping us to the loving light.
Millions resuscitated from momentary death are telling that we are not alone and afraid in death, but are with friends and family! They also say that the “other side” is timeless… so, to them, it’s only a blink of an eye before we are together again. It will help you to unlearn the church’s scary judgment threat. Historically, it turns out, that dogma was just a Roman pagan transfer into Christianity 300 years after Christ died… Christians should understand…the macabre, brimstone doctrine was never the teaching of Christ! (Read second and third articles in this blog on fear of death.)
Why do we believe this? Because now we have far more than a blind faith in dark ages religion…Now there’s significant, emerging medical evidence indicating life after death illuminated by defibrillation technology. Millions have been defibed…swept back from momentary death, witnessing that life does not end here…that death is just a door that opens to a new life beyond. Google their experiences.
Medicine is now compiling case studies of patients who’ve been miraculously resuscitated after being dead for up to 2 or 3 hours! These people (corpes) drift to relatives’ homes and accurately tell what they are doing or having for dinner. It’s like Scrooge did in “The Christmas Carol.” Doctors are now respecting and verifying their accounts… They’re correlating testimonies of things happening that a dead person just couldn’t possibly know!
There’s a world of positive new information confirming these things. The other articles of this blog will tip you into this emerging perspective. Google related sites. Learning more about this can lift you from the depths of despair to truly understanding our souls survive and flourish in a timeless, bliss until we meet again! We all have to live here harnessed to clocks. When you see him again, he’ll only think he missed you for a few moments. He wouldn’t want you to languish in sorrow over his death. He’d want you to love, laugh and live life to the fullest.
Primitive religions, such as our Roman Christianity insist faith infallibly knew everything 1700 years ago, but who’d have ever guessed we’d have a medical technology that would allow us to see into the other side? (Read the previous article on “Recent Medical Evidence of Life After Death.”)
We know much more now, and this correlated medical data is above and beyond the primitive notions of ancient priests. Open your mind to this. You’ll feel better about life and the world to come.
Yours very truly, Brad O’Donnell
