Lekatt replied to Kari Stills's discussion 'What is the worst thing that has ever happened to you while being religious?'
"I remember how frightened I was of hell, so frightened I went down to the front of the church often to try to save myself from eternal hell. When I was older I quit church altogether and just tried to forget about it. I was that way until my near…"

Lekatt replied to Skycomet the Fallen Angel's discussion 'New Debate Topic: The Historicity of Jesus'
"I was agnostic for most of my life until my near death experience which brought me to believing in a greater conscienceness or creator, nothing like the "God" many worship. So I have no part of the agnostic in me any more. Not to worry, I…"

"I think this understanding is better than most. It really doesn't matter whether you believe Jesus was real or not, was God or not. The importance of Jesus lies completely in His teachings. It is His teachings that have moved millions of people…"

"When I was in college, about 40 years ago, I wrote a paper on the historical Jesus. I had no trouble finding sources for the paper, three of them as I recall. Josephus, was one, but don't recall the others. I don't doubt that Jesus was an…"

Lekatt commented on Pesci's blog post 'Book Review - Jesus for the Non-Religious'
"Well, Jesus was an enlightened master teacher, one who saw through the illusion of physical life. So He said a lot of bold things that others dared not to speak. I did not understand His teachings until after my near death experience. It was easy to…"

Lekatt commented on Pesci's blog post 'Book Review - Jesus for the Non-Religious'
"Yes, I thought that would be the quote, but you notice nothing is said about salvation. Jesus was not claiming to be the path, He was saying that His teachings were the path. He was saying I am showing the way, the truth and the life. It is through…"

Lekatt commented on Pesci's blog post 'Book Review - Jesus for the Non-Religious'
"It is the message and not the messenger that matters. The message is not BS. So many things were attributed to Jesus that He never said. Show me where He said you must follow him to find salvation, follow Him where. Each master teacher was unique…"

"The value of Jesus does not lie in whether He is real or not. It is not important who He was or from where He came. His importance lies in His teachings, the path of spiritual growth He pointed out, and walked Himself. Nothing else really matters…"

Non-local Consciousness

Posted on July 17, 2010 at 11:57am 4 Comments

I want to thank everyone for their comments on my last post. I wish I could answer each one, but still unsure how everything works here.The main concern seems to be consciousness and whether it is local or non-local. Does the brain create consciousness or is consciousness a separate entity. In other word does the soul or spirit really exist.

Now near death experiences almost always begin with an out of body experience which if provable would show that brain and consciousness…

What God?

Posted on July 16, 2010 at 8:28am 12 Comments

Want to thank everyone for the kind wecome I have received, I truly appreciate it. Thought I would try to answer the question Adriana posited.

When I had my near death experience it was like I was plugged into the Universe and all its memories. I suddenly went from being the Janitor of the company with a Janitor's knowledge of how the company works to being the CEO with a CEO 's knowledge of the company. To say it was awesome is an understatement. All knowledge was available…

Whats a Name, but a Symbol

Posted on July 15, 2010 at 4:24pm 3 Comments

Just feeling the waters. I use the name God a lot because if I use the names that best describe my feelings of a higher intelligence no one seems to understand. I would prefer to use the Oneness or All-That-Is. I don't really care what others believe in, or whether they are theists, deists, atheists, whatever. Yes, I have heard all the arguments from all the sides of this debate. I would just like to discuss the arguments in a civil, friendly atmosphere. I don't know if such a thing exists.…

In The Middle

Posted on July 15, 2010 at 12:52pm 5 Comments

I feel strange posting on this blog because while I am not a believer in the Christian God I am not a true atheist either. I consider myself spiritual because of the near death experience I had over 20 years ago. I am sort of in the middle. When I post on religious message boards, they don't like me because I don't believe in their doctrine. I usually get called something with the word satan or devil in it. Then when I post on atheist blogs they believe I am delusional or at least misguided.… Continue
