> Spirituality can be a good thing, because it reminds us of our connection to each other, to the planet, and to the universe. The basic theme of spirituality is "We Are Family" (with apologies to Sister Sledge.) Religion, on the other hand, is divisive by nature, because each one claims to have "The Truth" and regards anyone outside its circle as being "lost" or an "infidel." Religion takes stories written to show people how to behave and get along to be happy and turns them into fact (when even Jesus was written to have used parables -- stories that didn't really happen -- as teaching tools), while also creating laws they ascribe as being passed down by a supernatural being. Believe what you like: Yaweh, Allah, Jesus, Xenu, the Flying Spaghetti Monster, whatever gets you through the night. But please don't insinuate that any of them offer a way around death. Everything and everyone ever born dies. That's why the oldest person on Earth is never more than maybe 114 years old. Prayer and faith work for some people, science works for others. We're all just trying to get through as best we can and if your faith has brought you wholeness and peace, that's great. But we all die.

Friends,
If you have read the post here by Meatwood_ Flack, you can see the statement that I am not to insinuate that any religion offers a way around death.
In the scriptures that he Jews use, Job writes, "If a man die, shall he live again?" And David said that he would dwell in the house of the Lord forever. And Danial writes of a resurrection of the dead. And in the book called Genesis, it writes that when a man dies, his body returns to the dust in the ground and his spirit returns to God.
Now it has been revealed to me that there is another life in The World Tomorrow, a world of peace and joy. But it is much more than that, for this World Tomorrow can be indwelling in you today. Now is the time to passover from this world to the World Tomorrow. And when you are in that kingdom, all things will be new, old things will pass away. Depression will pass away. Addiction will pass away. And the Rider on the white horse shall feed them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And in this revelation I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, "The dwelling place of God is with men and He shall dwell with them, and they shall be his people. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the former things are passed away. And He that spoke to me said, "Behold, I make all things new." And He said to me, "Write, for these words are true and faithful." And He said to me, "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to him that athirsts of the fountain of the water of life freely. And he that overcomes shall inherit all things and I will be his God, and he shall be my son."
Lou
