Another False Afterlife Story
Those who come across the nicest and most sincere are often the most deluded. Beware of those who speak loftily of God’s love and don’t adhere to His laws or ways, no matter how convincing their spiritual stories. “Let no one disqualify you, insisting on asceticism and worship of angels, going on in detail about visions, puffed up without reason by his sensuous mind, and not holding fast to the Head…” (Colossians 2:18-19 ESV).
We received this note:
Can you study Sondra Abrahams testimony. You can find her testimony on YouTube or through a Google search.
I would appreciate it.
Mike, Sondra may be sincere, but she is certainly deluded, if not a deliberate deceiver. Those who come into a living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ can never be Catholic. If you’ve red my testimony, you’ll find I was once Catholic. If you read wHaT tHe LoRd HaS dOnE wItH mE, you’ll see how God delivered me from the Roman Catholic Church in the process of salvation through repentance, the new birth, and a spiritual healing.
The doctrine and practice of the Roman Church are entirely antithetical to God, His ways, and His holy Scriptures. Sondra is full of the great and horrible doctrines of the RCC, many of which are lies and blasphemy against God.
You may find Sondra’s experience very convincing, I understand, but deception is powerful. Paul the apostle warned thus:
“But even if we or an angel from Heaven preach a gospel to you beside what we preached to you, let him be accursed” (Galatians 1:8 MKJV).
Jesus warned: “Take heed that no man deceive you. For many will come in My Name saying I am Christ [that Jesus is Christ], and will deceive many” (Matthew 24:4-5).
“For false christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders; so much so that, if it were possible, they would deceive even the elect” (Matthew 24:24 MKJV).
Consider the experiences of those in the Scriptures who saw the Lord, and you’ll find a very different experience from the kind Sondra relates. Read the examples of Abraham (Genesis 18), Jacob (Genesis 32), Moses (Exodus 3), Samson’s parents – Manoah and his wife (Judges 13), Isaiah (Isaiah 6), Daniel (Daniel 8), Zacharias (Luke 1), Jesus’ mother – Mary (Luke 1), Saul of Tarsus (Acts 9), and John (Revelation 1). See what they thought and felt and what happened when the Lord or an angel of the Lord appeared to them.
True, none of those were taken to hell, but then again, neither was Sondra.
See the report of my own experience seeing the Lord (Victor Hafichuk’s Testimony and Victor’s First Three Dreams from the Lord).
Do you think the Jesus Picture story from Sondra or the Mary Cards bringing people back to Church are fake?
Mike, flies swarm to honey and moths to lights at night. By nature, people will believe any lie, no matter how preposterous, but they will never believe the truth, no matter how reasonable and simple. That is the lot of the fallen man, who can be saved only by believing on the Lord Jesus Christ and being born again. Sondra knows nothing of the Lord, nothing at all. Read Religious Images, Icons, and Likenesses.
