catherine, " Actually, I think NDEs are not only possible, but probable. But that doesn't resolve the problem (if you will) of human beings being reconciled to their Creator. Wouldn't it be simply awful if these people who experienced a NDE then do nothing about it; then when they actually die (for good), they don't get to stay in the Heaven they glimpsed the first time. I can't think of anything more tragic. They knew. They knew!"
---------------------------

Why would a Creator create such a flawed individual that they needed saving? He must have been a pretty stupid and inept god/creator to begin with? A potter that creates flawed pots is a very poor potter indeed. A father that has children so bad that they have to spend eternity burning in Hell is a very poor father indeed. Wouldn't a very highly evolved God be able to create "children" who were perfect with no need for saving? Ones that automatically do what it is He wants them to do?

The whole idea that there must be sacrifice and that another person can take your place comes from ancient Babylonia. It's a very ancient idea that has carried over into Judaeo-Christian-Islamic law. In Islam if you murder someone you can pay off the family to get forgiveness. It's all the same thing.

I have 30 graduate hours in Holistic teaching and learning. To learn holistically means that just as you go about your daily life you pick up the skills and knowledge you need to survive. I suspicion that is what the Creator did when he created our Universe. We are here simply to live and just by living we learn what it is we are supposed to learn.
