Silly Christian rhetoric.

"I wish neither to possess, Nor to be possessed. I no longer covet paradise, more important, I no longer fear hell. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, But I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "

Ummm not even close. I can explain the 'biological explanation' of why the sun shines but that doesn't mean that biology has anything to do with it. Every one of these  'explanations' violate fundamental tenants of logic, common sense, and amount to nothing more than bias speculation.

I read this one years back. And yes, he did believe in all that before, but what he saw contradicted everything he was taught according to his experience. He says he saw Buddah himself in hell. His story is remarkable. I don't know that it's real, but it is very interesting indeed.

If you are someone who still doesn’t believe in the concept of ‘heaven’ and ‘hell’, please listen to this testimony provided by a Buddhist Monk who died for 3 days and witnessed both of them in his journey before coming back to warn all of us about it.....

Read Here:  Buddhist Monk Dies For 3 Days: Comes Back To Share His Heaven & Hell “Near Death Experience”

Up to now, the so-called "Near Death Experience" still reamains an enigma to the modern science. To me, many spritual things are really beyond our current sicentific level. It's up to you to assess whether what the monk told us is true or not. I just want to share the story with you. :tu: :tu: :tu:

Nope.

I think we share a different understanding of what it is to be saved through the blood of Jesus nevertheless, I appreciate your point of view.

I'll never understand your religion's obsession with the bleeding of Jesus. I think this custom was a late addition to establish the fundamentals of the religion, and takes nothing away from Jesus who does not require blood to help people who fall into his realm etc. If you take that kind of thing literally, or even as a figure of speech representing spirit; it does fit in well with the gory aspects of strange indigenous religions though.

Second of all you don't know that...

Yes I do.. The church even admitted.
Also if you take the second death lake of fire..
in the bible as literal...
Then you need to take the whole beast with lots of heads and claws coming out of the water
literal....
also all the false prophecies... of an asteriod called worm wood.

First of all worm wood is an HERB. it's why it says it would make the waters bitter...
a rock would not make waters bitter...
and even then it's all symbolic....

IF hell is real.. .we can say it;s on certain parts of this earth...

I'm personally not obsessed with the blood aspect, it's not literal obviously, but his blood that was shed is one representation of his sacrifice for us humans.

This would go way off topic but no single religion is an authority on hell. Hell is on topic though. If we reject all non earth bound entities, because we have no generally accepted proof of aliens, then I would agree there can be no possibility of a hell, or heaven beyond this planet. But I don't reject the possibility of other realms with their own localized entities. Hell is one of those realms. [this was proven to me and many others of all religions and so not just speculation] I don't think it is possible for a person to prove that to another person, so when people survive hell they tend to rely on some already accepted religion, which I think diminishes the experience.

I find it a bit aggressive to claim that this man is a "fraud" or a "liar" just because HIS experience does not match what another person believes.

So because he had a Near Death Experience where he saw Buddha in hell, that means he is a liar and a fake?

His experience is his experience, who are YOU to tell him what he did or did not see?

Am I scared because of his experience? No.

Do I believe in Jesus now, because of his experience? No.

This doesn't put me in fear, and it definitely doesn't make me wanna go on my knees and pray to "God". It just makes me dislike Christianity even more because of its fear tactics and its controlling ways.  If such a God exists, and he has to use fear-tactics like this saying "believe and do whatever I say or burn in hell" that God is not worthy of worship. That is just a being of control.

Im still on the fence about NDE's but this article was pretty poor. We just have to be honest and say that at this time science cant explain it.

It doesn't mean that science never will but these hack piece articles are kind of sad.

To be honest I couldn't get past the first minute of the video.

I am not a Buddhist but from what I have read ont eh subject, Buddhists do NOT believe in an eternal hell where people suffer an eternity of unimaginable pain, torture and torment. From what I gather, they seem to believe in a place people go to pay their dues and stuff then go on.

No one is tortured brutally because they refuse to buckle down and believe on command but are in a sort of "prison" type preschool (sort of) to learn some basics if they have been real jerks and intentionally hurt others.

This whole "Buddha in a lake of fire" sounds like some christian based propaganda used to terrorize people into thinking that their way is bad and there is only one way to live.

I don't buy into any of it.
