    Kurt, I'm not irritated in the least! And, while I wouldn't be disrespectful, that is the way I would react...after getting over the initial shock, that is.

    I've not read any of the Silver Birch books and they aren't currently on my reading list but I am questioning by nature so I'm sure that if I get around to reading any of them I will read from a very questioning and skeptical perspective and then decide what seems logical and what doesn't. And if, at the end of the day, it turns out that my conclusions are wrong, then so be it. At least I tried to the learn. That's all anyone can ask. For some things in life, I believe, the journey is as important as the destination.

    Just to let you know, I have great love and respect for Jesus. I have a crucifix my wife gave me a few years ago. I wear it 24/7 because of my love for Jesus and the light he tried shine on this world.

    I agree. I am equally discerning. But outright flushing a work away is not logical.

    The initial shock is what I was referring to. You, as would everyone... Would freak out.

    None of us can be certain about how we'd feel if someone appeared in this world who appeared, or presented, as the guy we know as Jesus. Or, come to that, if someone else appeared with a similar message. Short of demonstrating abilities that blew everyone's socks off I suspect humankind would be sceptical and/or dismissive of any such individual.

    It's an interesting notion to consider, though. ;)

    Honestly, I believe you are right. I don't know if you read it, but I said elsewhere that the only thing that will convince some skeptics is if

    And I quite off of memory... So please forgive what's incorrect, but since it is my words it will be right.

    Nothing short of Jesus Christ himself wheeling Stephen Hawking himself down a stairway from heaven to deliver a lecture on the afterlife will convince certain people of what we already consider to be true.

    It would take a lot.

    That's certainly an interesting notion! :D

    Kurt,

    1) We are told that nearly always loved ones will reunite in the Summerland, and usually to the next two generations, before anyone will reincarnate. Since there is no objective time there, and since we can choose to incarnate at any time - past or future - this is not much of an inconvenience, even for the most ambitious!

    2) Reportedly soul groups are enormous - perhaps in the thousands! - and insofar as we know, you have relationships with many others outside your group as well. We are playacting when we are here, and especially if you have had a lot of negativity in this earth-lifetime you will shed it all when you leave your body and everyone will hug you and tell you what a great job you did with a difficult life-plan! I think"disown" is not even a concept that any eternal being could understand.
