See the comments after the Contact Me page, and the comments after the Vic on FaceBook page.  If you are interested in where I caught the guy, see also the comments after the  I Told You So page and the Shaharokh Sharifazi page. 

It's nothing personal; I just don't chat and jabber on social media any more.  Here, I do.  Nothing gets posted on this website by anyone other than me.  There is no real control over your own account in social media, and that's the reason.

Hello,

I love your site, and I've been trying to read as much as possible over the last few weeks. I agree with most everything you've written, but I've struggled with my faith over the years and am not exactly sure what to believe in anymore.

I've recently read the work of Ian Stevenson who made a living studying the claims of reincarnation, and I believe he has made a pretty good case for it (along with numerous cases for it). In addition, there are a multitude of Near-Death-Experiences in which the experiences not only taught reincarnation, but all the experiences seem to suggest that while there is a God, there appears to be no such place as hell, or even Satan.

However, I despise the New Age philosophy because they are almost all leftists, and preach that there is no such thing as evil, which I strongly disagree with. I find myself identifying much more with the Catholic faith then with any New Age religion, but, I can't seem to get my mind of of these two major points, which both are in direct opposition to the Churches teaching.    

I was just wondering what your thoughts are on the subject of reincarnation and NDEs. Is there evidence that suggests that reincarnation isn't real and NDEs are just a product of the mind?

Thanks,

Michael

Michael:

Sorry for the delay in responding, but I have been having computer problems. 

The difference between Catholicism and non-Christian, non-Jewish religions is vast.  When different kinds of Christians and different kinds of Jews argue religious points with each other, they argue about differing recognitions and interpretations of that which they all recognize as Revelation.  It is a body of knowledge revealed to man by God.  It is not so with other religious belief systems. 

In all other religions, man sought God, and came up with some hopeful representation of what they thought God should or could be.  In Judeo-Christianity, alone, God came to man.  In no other religion is this true.  He Who made it all, Who made man, also made freedom, or liberty, and placed it in the heart of man, out of love. 

God wanted man to love God, and love is only possible in the presence of liberty, because if love is not given freely, it is not love.  But freedom allows wrong decisions; the propensity of love given freely accompanies the propensity of hate, and of wrong choices freely made. 

At first, He walked and talked with man in the Garden.  After the fall, He came to Noah, to save a remnant.  He tested Abraham.  He sent Johah to save Niniveh.  He inspired Moses, gave him the Law and equipped him as a leader.  Finally, He sent Himself, in the "person" of Jesus the Redeemer, to take upon Himself our guilt, to free us from our sin, if we would be free of it, and to show us the Way. 

For those looking for worldly proofs, much of salvation history as recorded in Scripture is solidly backed up by archaeological and non-Scriptural historical evidences.   For those looking for logical proofs, the ancient Greeks, and perhaps others, arrived at the conclusion of the singularity of God from the Primal First Mover argument, described in the faith versus atheism page.  This argument says that even if there be other gods, they must have been created by the original god.  Something had to be first

It is not by science or by logic that you will find ultimate salvation, but by faith, hope and love.  Read the first chapter of John.  It's all right there. 

Regarding reincarnation and near death experiences, all I can say is, the only supporting evidences are ephemeral, which is to say, not physical.  It consists solely of reports by fallible human beings about experiences and or dreams.  Whether any particular event as reported was inspired by God, or by angels, or by demons, or merely by the mind that told the story is indeterminate. 

For me, the test of whether such an imagining or dream or story might have validity is whether it supports or contradicts Revelation - the protected deposit of faith from which we draw hope.  The Revelation does not change.   (There is no reincarnation in the Revelation.)  If the event or report supports or at least does not contradict Revelation, which is to say, it does not ad to it, subtract from it or change it, then, it may be true. 

Regarding the existence of Satan and Hell, Bishop Sheen and others have pointed out the fact that Satan is never happier and never makes more progress in the world he rules than when his potential victims do not even believe that he exists. 

Regards,

Vic

Current Democratic Party platform reveals anti-Semitic streak among Liberals. In their voting, their speechifying, and in the slant of their controlled mainstream media reporting, the current Democratic Party Platform is made clear to all observers.

The "Left", and The DaVinci Code, The Passion, and Cartoons of Mohammed. You can tell a lot about a movement by its public words.  The Passion? "Unreservedly Bad." The DaVinci Code? "Unreservedly Good." Anything to do with Islam? "No Comment."

Who's driving the Health Care bus? Health insurance companies "grading" doctors? Health insurance companies grading doctors: a legitimized conflict of interest. A preparatory step toward the nationalization of the health insurance industry?

Some Problems with NuVo: the so-called Null-Vote Initiative. A "philosophical" movement aimed at keeping religious conservatives from voting? Seriously? Let me state my problems with NuVo.

Come, let us sit and reason together. Jews and Christians of various stripe and spot can say to each other, 'Come, let us sit and reason together.' But we can't do that with the Moslems.
