I am currently reading your ebook on Hell and much of it seems to make sense, but one question I have is: If Hell is not real, what are we being saved from? Furthermore, why did Christ have to die as a worthy sacrifice for our sins, becoming sin Himself (2Cor 5:21).
Christ rarely ever taught about Salvation and when He did, it was always in the context of Following His Way. If He Is merely saving us from our Old Life, how does that pair with, “It is the free gift of God, this not of ourselves lest any man boast, but by Grace through Faith.”?
The Apostles preach in Acts a good deal about Salvation, but from what?
Please don’t take these questions as antagonistic, I promise they aren’t. But I have to ask hard questions in order to search for Truth
Forgive me if I answer. I do feel the need for forgiveness, as I am new to this site, and feel I have overstayed my welcome seeing as this is my fourth post in a few hours. But I love this question.
Yes what indeed are we saved from?
Now I mix a lot with Spiritualists, and they as also the followers of New Thought and followers of ACIM will all tell you were is nothing to be saved from. That would be true if your chosen destination is the highest heaven (Sixth) of the Kingdom of Spirit. Because we all go after death to this realm. All of us. Atheists, Jews, Muslims, born-again Christians, intellectuals, Hindu, Bahai – all of us. In fact the only person I personally know of who did not, is the Master Jesus of Nazareth. I have been told he is not the only one. But I don’t know who they were and there have been incredibly few. My guess is one of the very advanced Hindu gurus made it.
Now, why did Jesus come here?
He came here to teach us how to get BEYOND the Kingdom of Spirit which has existed since Adam and Eve. And that is why he said we need to be “reborn of spirit”. And that my friend is the real salvation. Getting out of the Kingdom of Spirit because God does not dwell in a material realm which the Kingdom of Spirit is. He dwells in the Eternal Realm.
Now I can tell you how to be reborn of spirit, and I do know it actually works. I know it actually works because I have been able to receive communication from others that passed and have confirmed this. Now maybe you might like to read my book on the hells which has a lot more detail on all of this, and then on another thread perhaps we can talk about being reborn of spirit?
