    The heaven that Dr. Alexander describes is not Christian, or at least not conventionally Christian, which is a bit of a burden for Christian believers who are greatly impressed by his experience.

    I've figured out how to reconcile that with my own experience and belief, but it's a trial for others: and I do not disrespect their struggle.

    •  Reading THIS book makes one a spiritual expert? (7+ / 0-)

      Or not having read it somehow disqualifies one from commentary?

      THIS book is but one of a thousand thousand books written over a thousand thousand years of recordings of spiritual experience of a thousand thousand thousand people.

      Having read or not read THIS particular book has absolutely no bearing upon ones qualification to comment on the human spiritual experience.

      There is nothing 'silly' about pointing out the unassailable fact that people of one faith see their own deity during their religious experience, while people of another faith see THEIR deity during THEIR religious experience.

      I am a strong believer in the strength of the faith of believers, and wish for you all the strength that your faith gives you.
