More than a head…

Terry Dashner…………….Faith Fellowship Church PO Box 1586 Broken Arrow, OK 74013

You’ll need more than just a good head on your shoulders to receive this. In fact, you’ll need a heart. And you will need something else.

Someone once said that human reason must follow faith, notrepparttar reverse. What does that mean? It means that reason can carry you so far with God. Then you must take a leap of faith. Faith soars far aboverepparttar 137578 mind of man. Allow me to explain myself, please.

Our system of democracy is indebted torepparttar 137579 ancient Greeks. Our system of civil law is indebted torepparttar 137580 Romans who borrowed heavily fromrepparttar 137581 Greeks. In Greek history a witness testified in a court of law what he saw with his own eyes. His facts (facts ofrepparttar 137582 witness) becamerepparttar 137583 facts ofrepparttar 137584 court. Throughrepparttar 137585 eyes ofrepparttar 137586 witnessrepparttar 137587 court becamerepparttar 137588 observer. Butrepparttar 137589 word witness came to mean something in addition torepparttar 137590 observer. To witness meant to persuaderepparttar 137591 court thatrepparttar 137592 facts were true facts. Not only wererepparttar 137593 facts presented butrepparttar 137594 witness worked to persuaderepparttar 137595 court that what he saw was indeed true.

Here’srepparttar 137596 something else you need to help you receiverepparttar 137597 things of God. You needrepparttar 137598 Holy Spirit. Onlyrepparttar 137599 Holy Spirit can witness to whatrepparttar 137600 Father and Son are doing in Redemption. The Holy Spirit also persuades us that it is true. The Holy Spirit isrepparttar 137601 Divine Persuader, and He persuades only inrepparttar 137602 context of truth. He witnesses torepparttar 137603 believer thatrepparttar 137604 Word of God (Bible) is true. I believerepparttar 137605 Gospel of Jesus Christ because I’ve had supernatural help believing it. I didn’t wake up one morning and determine to believe God’s Word. The Holy Spirit did a work in my life that brought me to truth, and then He persuaded me that it was true. That’s why I really believe that Jesus isrepparttar 137606 Son of God becauserepparttar 137607 Holy Spirit persuades me.

All Christians haverepparttar 137608 witness ofrepparttar 137609 Holy Spirit. That’s why a believer knows what she knows, what she knows, without a degree in Theology. The Holy Spirit brought forthrepparttar 137610 truth ofrepparttar 137611 Gospel and persuaded her that it was truth for her. The Bible is credible, believable, within itself—not needingrepparttar 137612 help of externals to testify to its truth—becauserepparttar 137613 Holy Spirit of God testifies to it.

The Afterlife and Scientology

Written by Robert Bruce Baird

AFTERLIFE: The 'Bardol Thodol' and 'Sidpa Thodol' ofrepparttar 'Tibetan Book ofrepparttar 137295 Dead' with a forward by Carl Jung and Lama Anagarika Govinda, by Evans Wentz is a great insight torepparttar 137296 hallucinatory nature ofrepparttar 137297 images we carry forward beyondrepparttar 137298 grave. These hallucinations (beliefs) go away andrepparttar 137299 'white light' is all that remains. The 'white light' may not be seen by those still attached to this material plane and its' obsessions or propaganda for quite some period of time. The interstitial states of purgatory and limbo(words with all kinds of fables that are far from true, associated with them) arerepparttar 137300 realms wherein these devious 'visions' play out their energy uponrepparttar 137301 soul of unenlightened 'followers' of many belief systems. That is a simplistic overview, to sayrepparttar 137302 least.

Moody's work on 'Life After Death' documents in real epistemic terms a plethora of cases that boil down to 15 stages that are common and eight of which most people go through. From conversations with people who've had heart by-pass or other Near Death Experiences (NDEs) I am sure there is much merit in his work. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross was a great student and scholar from UCLA who I met and heard talk of these things. Inrepparttar 137303 final analysis I find much ofrepparttar 137304 quantum physical world hasrepparttar 137305 best descriptions of what kind of realities other dimensions allow. However, we are all not able to understand that which we are not physically involved with, so allow me to visit with 'Seth Speaks' by Jane Roberts as well as L. Ron Hubbard, Jr. for a moment; he says:

"The explanation is sort of long and complicated. The basic rationale is that there are some powers in this universe that are pretty strong. As an example, Hitler was involved inrepparttar 137306 same black magic andrepparttar 137307 same occult practices that my father was. {This might explain whyrepparttar 137308 Allies used Hubbard and Crowley, Dion Fortune and Ian Fleming in a counter psychic group.} The identical ones. Which, as I have said, stem clear back to before Egyptian times. It's a very secret thing. {We covered a lot of it in 'Science' from 'Genesis ofrepparttar 137309 Grail Kings' and a Christian mystery school called Rosicrucianity.}. Very powerful and very workable and very dangerous. Brainwashing is nothing compared to it. The proper term would be 'soul cracking.' It's like cracking openrepparttar 137310 soul, which then opens various doors torepparttar 137311 power that exist,'repparttar 137312 satanic and demonic powers…

{My younger brother is a thirty year member who has signed a billion year soulful contract. He thinks L. Ron Jr. isrepparttar 137313 antithesis of a 'realized being' and all Scientologists HATE him. That is a pretty good recommendation in itself, if you look closely at this organization that uses every hypnotic and other mind-control method available to milk people of everything including their soul. If it isn't 'organized crime' I don't know what is! Yet, inrepparttar 137314 scheme of things they tell more truth than most who they imitate - like psychiatry and education. Ritalin is a favourite rallying point of theirs.}

Simply put, it's like a tunnel or an avenue or a doorway. {Meditation takes one through this torepparttar 137315 white light that afterlife portends. In this processrepparttar 137316 physical individual onrepparttar 137317 Scientology pathways never gets torepparttar 137318 next realm, unless atrepparttar 137319 OTO [Ordre Templis Orientalis] 'fin-de-siecle’ suicidal retirement plan, that Hubbard studied inrepparttar 137320 Crowleyan Thelemic school as noted in many documents - butrepparttar 137321 Scientologists say he was working as an undercover agent. FOR WHOM?!}. Pulling that power into yourself through another person--and using women {Inrepparttar 137322 Crowleyan adaptation ofrepparttar 137323 Star-Fire Ceremony which uses 'Scarlet Women' forrepparttar 137324 monthly menstruum so full of hormones like melatonin. Hubbard also was a Rosicrucian.}, especially -- is incredibly insidious {Even Crowley thought Hubbard was a nut to think he could commandrepparttar 137325 goddess Babalon to do his bidding.}. It makes Dr. Fu Manchu look like a kindergarten student. It isrepparttar 137326 ultimate vampirism,repparttar 137327 ultimate mind-phuck, instead of going forrepparttar 137328 blood, you're going for their soul. And you take drugs in order to reach that state {The drug thing is OUT now that L. Ron Sr. was drugged out of his miserable existence.} where you can, quite literally, like a psychic hammer, break their soul, and pullrepparttar 137329 power through. He designed his Scientology Operating Thetan techniques to dorepparttar 137330 same thing. But, of course, it takes a couple of hundred hours of auditing and mega-thousands of dollars {Current data suggestsrepparttar 137331 coursework to 'the Bridge' runs over $300,000 dollars. My brother gives donations to causes like prison programs and mental health as well. His daughter is a slave atrepparttar 137332 Clearwater HQ, who works for nothing, etc.} forrepparttar 137333 privilege of having your head turned into a glass Humpty Dumpty--shattered into a million pieces. It may sound like incredible gibberish, but it made my father a fortune {The Church(?) got $600,000,000 from his estate and it was likely to have been a murder according to some knowledgeable officials.}."

In Egypt there is a temple with drawings onrepparttar 137334 walls or plaques that show souls inside tubes. This temple of Bendera is probably an archaeologic proof of what has been going on in most adept religious pursuits for millenia if not eons. Crowley was claimed by Hubbard as 'his close personal friend' inrepparttar 137335 Philadelphia Lectures that psychology thought his ideas were worth considering inrepparttar 137336 early 50s. Crowley wasrepparttar 137337 self-avowed '666' and he apparently never actually (physically) met Hubbard. Yet Hubbard claims to be a continuance of Crowley just as Crowley claimedrepparttar 137338 same inrepparttar 137339 line of Caligostro and Eliphas Levi, among others. The 'soul-grabbing' possibility is not mere 'hocus-pocus'; you should be concerned about how your own soul is pre-empted by 'beliefs' you have little personal control and knowledge over or about.
