There is a dilemma that I feel I need to raise.
I know that not everyone who believes in near death experiences believe in God. They may believe in a Source, Higher Power, Universal Consciousness... etc. But sometimes the implication of God Himself is shunned.
Okay, I get that. People are going to have differing beliefs. Especially when each person's experience in life is different.
But at least they believe in SOMETHING. Something that promotes Love and kindness and to try and teach that here on Earth.
But what about those that have never heard of nde's, or dismiss the bible/God completely; who think there's NOTHING waiting for us after we pass away, thus can literally do anything and everything in life with no afterlife repercussion... and so on? How, honestly, do we reach those people?
I promise I am not crazy ( ) but it feels like God is calling me to do something with my life. ...Like, in the bible how it mentions:
I have a synchronistic tie to this phrase (four of them, within the last 2 days) and the other signs that I have received... and yet I have spent a lot of my time doing exactly this. Just "hearing" the calling, but doing nothing about it. :\ So I really want to be able to DO something, and feel like He wants me to somehow reach others, but I have absolutely no idea how to do it.Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. 24 For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. 25 But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.
And I know once I start to preach/advocate about God/Jesus to those who don't believe or are on the fence, I'll be faced with scorn/ridicule/anger and so on. And might drive them away even further. ...So are there any gentle ways to approach this? : )
(Btw... with my excessive use of emoticons on this post, realized that there are TWO devil emoticons, but no angels?? I would like to see an angel emoticon... and maybe a unicorn one. )
