    For those of you lost but seeking the truth of who you are, what your purpose is, what is going on in this chaotic world. I have
    the answers for you. The truth is Jesus Christ. He is God, He created you, He created the world, He created all things. He wants you
    to seek Him and repent from your sins, to repent from means to turn away from completely. If you will simply humble yourself and
    pray to Jesus Christ to reveal Himself to you, He will reveal the truth of the Bible and who He is. It is
    that simple. Once you come to truth of who Jesus Christ is(He is God), you need to pick up your cross everyday by seeking Him and
    His will. For you were created for His pleasure, not your own, that is why He wants us to forsake lusts of the flesh and to turn to
    Him. We are only at most a couple decades from the second coming of Christ. This is final call, get on the ark or perish with the
    rest of the wicked. Before I found out the truth about Jesus, I went through many new age spiritual teachings that lead to absolutely
    nowhere but more lies and deceit put in place by the devil. Thats what all other religions and spiritual teachings are, they are
    setup to lead you away from the truth of Jesus Christ and the gospel(the Bible). I even experimented with many psychoactive drugs
    in search of the truth. The truth is the Bible and the Bible states that the devil rules this world for now, until Christ returns
    to setup His eternal Kingdom. So what happens when you take psychoactive drugs you are making a connection to the spiritual world that
    is hidden but directly over this dimension. When you take drugs like mushrooms,LSD or DMT you are connecting to that world and
    allow for the demonic spirits that are trapped on earth but in the spirit dimension to manipulate you. That is how I came to the truth
    of the Bible, I had many demonic experiences after smoking DMT. I was also defiled and corrupted by sins I had committed and continued
    to committ being ignorant that I was even sinning. Once I prayed to Jesus Christ to forigve me and baptized myself in the name of Jesus
    Christ, He did just that and took all the damage from the sins to my consciousness away. Hallelujah(means to praise God)! I am so
    thankful to be where I am at, and it is all because of the good works Jesus has done in me. Please before things get any worse
    in this world, which we are at the climax point before many end time wars break out, turn to Jesus and get to know Him before it is
    too late.

    I have referred this thread to Roberta for adjudication as to whether it breaches her website rules concerning the discussion/promotion of religion.

    Wow, did you even read the forum rules at all?

    Austin, there is almost nothing in your post that is of any value to us here. This is a religion-free zone for one big reason: there is almost nothing that you have said in your post that is accurate in terms of what the not-actually-dead are telling us! And this is, sadly, always true of the religionists who come here to preach. We can't have a dialog, since those stuck in religions really have no interest in learning anything.

    For the sake of others reading your post, I've got to say that those that we used to think were dead have weighed in pretty heavily and entirely consistently on this subject. They tell us that from the perspective of the genuine God, there is no such thing as sin; there will be no end-times; our obsession with sex is not sinful but is simply silly; and most of the Bible has nothing to do with spiritual truth. If you want to follow a religion, Austin, then by all means enjoy your religion! But since modern Christianity as it is practiced does not follow the teachings of Jesus and is fear-based and not love-based, it is impossible for the religion to elevate anyone spiritually. Jesus is genuine, but the religion is not, and in fact it is proving to be profoundly harmful to the world; and this is especially tragic when the Master has been claimed by Christianity, even though He didn't start the religion and Christianity's claiming Him keeps most people from knowing the truth enough to actually follow Him.

    In case you wonder why I believe that I can speak with such authority, I have read the Bible cover-to-cover a half-dozen times (and the New Testament at least twice as many times), I majored in early Christian history in college, and I was an ardent Christian for the first fifty years of my life. I've been there. But still, what I think doesn't matter! What does Jesus have to say about modern Christianity? Let's ask Him:

    “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you will know them by their fruits” (MT 7:15-20).

    “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets” (MT 22:37-40).

    “Why do you transgress the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition?... You hypocrites! Rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you: ‘This people honors me with their lips, but their hearts are far away from me. But in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the precepts of men’” (MT 15:3-9).

    “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened” (MT 7:7-8).

    And finally, the sacred words that Christians altogether ignore in favor of their hideous and insulting false belief that God doesn't love us enough to forgive us for being human unless God first gets to enjoy watching Jesus be horribly murdered:

    “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (JN 8:31-32)

    I am going to close this thread, and I will shortly be deleting it. DO NOT PREACH CHRISTIANITY HERE!! I know more about Jesus and about the genuine God than you can imagine, and I will protect the love-based Truth from the fear-based lies of modern mainstream Christianity.
