    Faith is something I need to survive and move on from day to day. Thank god for it. Lately my faith has taken a crap but my cornerstone of Christ keeps me going. Sometimes I just don't really believe but I need it. Sometimes I'm scared to not believe so I don't dare. Sometimes I know he is the son and sometimes I just believe till the tears roll down my checks. I believe somehow through the pain and joy. He is god. He has to be and there is no way he isn't.

    This stuff intrigues me. I personally have no relation with any God.

    It feels so good to believe. Like nothing else.

    I find it curious that you to chose to capitalize the word god. If you truly had no relationship with any diety you would have simply said god.

    . Watched that on television Friday night with the kids. His story was very familiar to mine. That's something i never spoke about except with my wife. The kids still only half believe my story
    but that's ok.

    Were your parents religious? Mine were. Not devout catholics, but firm believers. My sister and I were altar girls. I think because we were ingrained to be Catholic, it makes it easier to believe when you are older and start questioning things. How can this or that occur is God really loved us, sort of things. I don't actively go to church, but I do believe that their is a higher power. Mine has the name of Jesus Christ, God, and The Holy Spirit.

    My mother just gave me my Confirmation outfit, talk about memories flooding back. :bigsmile2:

    The guy in that video is a huckster, he's already got a scientology knockoff quasi-religion setup, if you have enough money to contribute to the cause you can join his "Blue Butterfly Society" and be an "Eternean". Considering how well his book sold, I'm sure the rubes will be lining up to hand over their cash. Fools and their money.

    I am glad you survived. That was an amazing video, I can't imagine having that be a real memory. Thank you for sharing that.

    I was raised catholic. I was also raised to stay away from street corner hustlers like Mr. Alexander.

    So that would mean anonymous, who does not capitalize "god", is lying when he says he has faith?

    I have absolutely zero interest in anything involving that member.

    No, I have yet to nor will I ever accept his friend request.

    So do you believe in any similar cases of near death experience stories or is it just this man that you call bogus?

    Who knows? Even if I had the time to investigate every claim, I don't really care. If someone has a personal experience that they believe that's their thing, not mine. Eben Alexander on the other hand is pretty clearly trying to make a buck by preying on the gullible.

    Yet, he still takes time out of his day to make a comment concerning him.
