This world is now heavily involved in spiritualism and witchcraft, and the majority of people do not even realize! We are allowing devilish things into our homes and minds. The Word of God never said our war was a physical one against flesh and blood with weapons!
But a spiritual war against the powers of darkness (Ephesians 6:12). Satan has not only deceived unbelievers with his spiritual wickedness. He has also deceived the majority of professed Christians through this false teaching of ‘immortality of the soul’.
Movies and Music both have taken to explore this area and as usual, they have depicted it completely contrary to the Bible. It is now generally assumed that when someone dies, tehy go to heaven, a doctrine of the Catholic Church – with the exception of the magic net that will save the sinners -purgatory.
“Every night before I would go on stage I would kneel in front of his photograph and look into his eyes and he would give me the strength to go and do it every night,” Nicole Kidman said while picking up her best actor award for her role as pioneering British scientist Rosalind Franklin in the play Photograph 51.
Even science, something that disagrees in whole with Christianity right from creation! Apparently, the largest ever scientific study seems to suggest that life can continue after death. Imagine that!
A Texas Pastor added his voice to the dialogue by claiming that “near death experiences” are biblical. The pastor has interviewed more than 100 people who have had the ‘near death experience’.
“In Imagine Heaven, I talk about the 12 common experiences, like people are themselves … we’re more ourselves than you’ve ever been, and not just with five senses but it’s like with 50 new senses,” he said. “We recognize each other … the relationships are more pure because the communication is heart to heart. [I] talk about beauty unlike on Earth (mountains, valleys, rivers, flowers), but experienced really in extra dimensions. … People talk about the vibrancy of color, like colors we’ve never seen before — it’s like a sensory explosion.” Source
The pastor goes on to allege that ‘how we imagine heaven’ is more likely how it is going to be and that affects how we live.
But the bible is clear on state of the dead.
“Spiritualism is now changing its form, veiling some of its more objectionable and immoral features, and assuming a Christian guise. Formerly it denounced Christ and the Bible; now it professes to accept both. The Bible is interpreted in a manner that is attractive to the unrenewed heart, while its solemn and vital truths are made of no effect. A God of love is presented; but his justice, his denunciations of sin, the requirements of his holy law, are all kept out of sight. Pleasing, bewitching fables captivate the senses of those who do not make God’s word the foundation of their faith. Christ is as verily rejected as before; but Satan has so blinded the eyes of the people that the deception is not discerned.” (E.White, The Spirit of Prophecy, Volume 4, p.405)
