Life after death…. from my eyes

November 28, 2018

I have not had any near death experiences so I cannot personally testify to what lies on the other side of this life based on actual experience and though I wish otherwise my faith is not so strong that I would happily face my mortality, so here I sit like millions of others vacillating back and forth between belief and skepticism.

Almost half the population of this earth says that nothing happens there is no afterlife we are merely a physical being no better than any other animal walking this earth. We live for a time and then we are no more is their philosophy….

but for those who insist on scientific evidence

I would like to postulate the following…..

….What if one day astronauts land on the moon or Mars and discover a functioning “bio-dome” one similar to the one in Arizona and when one stands at the control panel all the dials are set just right for human life. The oxygen ratio is perfect; the temperature is 70 degrees; the humidity is at 50%; there’s a system for replenishing the air and radiation is at a rate not harmful to living beings. Looking closely you can see the dials have a huge range of possible settings and it is obvious if one were to adjust one or more of them a little bit the environment would go out of kilter and life would not be able to exist.

What conclusion would you come to if this occurred on a future space mission? Could it be that it just happened into existence? The obvious answer is someone took great care to match the settings to human life and it was not there by accident. Some intelligent being designed and prepared it to support humans and that is the analogy I carry over to our planet earth.

I do not believe that it could have happened just by luck that this one planet in the billions upon billions of planets in the universe had the perfect environment to nurture and sustain human life. If this belief sounds rational based on those facts then I think you must take the next logical step that only God could create that one in a billion planet ready for human life. You might now ask what does this have to do with life after death…. everything because it is a large part of the very foundation of the belief in God and therefore his teachings in the bible about heaven and hell.

Like I have said my faith at times weakens
not for lack of desire
but because I know to share in Gods glory in heaven
I must lead a life free from sin
and though rewarding
that is not an easy walk down life’s road.

    I enjoy your posts greatly and I must say these 2 posts are wonderful as well. I do believe in the God of Abraham and Isaac and in the Holy Trinity. In many cases though there have been ‘religions’ that have twisted the TRUTH beyond repair. I would not be here today if it weren’t for that God and Jesus Christ (Yeshua). It is not by some great miracles that I have felt HIS presence within my life, but through very many small prayers that have been answered. Many of these smaller answered prayers have been for things such as help with bills or shelter and even travelling 3 times cross- country from New York State to Washington State on little to no funds with vehicles that shouldn’t have made the journey and fuel mileage that was told was impossible to achieve in said vehicles. But, many forget that if there is a God, then there is also Lucifer(Satan) “The Great Deceiver” and his primary deception is to convince us that God doesn’t exist (or at minimum doesn’t care) by creating that doubt within our minds/hearts. Every day, I do not question if God exists; but more of have I been a “Good and faithful servant”. As I know we are not perfect by any means, we have our flaws; but do I deserve forgiveness for my sins/flaws.

    Dear Pete, Great post about the necessity of there being a Creator when you observe what is obviously a creation designed by a Mind. I so agree!! I pray that you are trusting in the Savior to give you eternal life, for without Him our efforts to be perfect enough for Heaven are doomed.  The Creator came to earth as a baby, perfect, sinless–to be able to do what He came to DO… pay the price for your shortcomings and mine. Those are the miracles of Christmas and Easter… Who He is, and what He came to do. Hallelujah… “these things were written that you may KNOW that you have eternal life.” Bless you, Pete!!!
