No, He does not. Once you're dead, it's over. You can't make any decisions.
Well, some people have been pronounced technically dead by doctors, yet have come back believers, where once they disbelieved. Then there is the belief in Purgatory by Jews and Catholics, which is considered a time of purifying for the soul. So perhaps a person may have been lackadaisical about God, yet are given even further opportunity to get "back on track" and "see the light" so to speak. On the other hand, those whose souls have left the earth may not yet be pure enough to enter the the "highest" heaven, if indeed there are different levels.
Just food for thought. For anyone interested, an interesting fictional book on this matter is M. Scott Pecks, In Heaven As On Earth.
People who have been pronounced technically dead by doctors, yet have come back (and btw they don't always come back as believers) aren't dead now are they. Ther fact remains if you are alive then you haven't died, period. No one can prove otherwise
What? Of course you could have died and then been saved. It happens all the time. Your heart stops, your dead. You stop breathing, your dead. Unless someone revives you (which is the case in those situations) you are dead.
Well assuming there is consciousness after death and assuming that one appears before God then ergo it would be immediately apparent that God was real and so unbelief would be moot. As for what happens next depends upon your concept of unconditional everlasting love. Does your concept of God's love allow him to torture some soul in hell because of unbelief during life when that unbelief was a result of zero evidence for God's existence being presented to the unbeliever. That is, if God fails to reveal himself to the living, how can the living be condemned for not believing?
DH, it's not God torturing a spirit for unbelief, it is the spirit not deciding to have the faith to stand up as a spiritual being. It is spirit deciding that oblivion is warm and cozy. You will never have proof if you don't have faith, first.
God never fails. NOTHING depends on what anyone's concept of unconditional everlasting love is or their concept of anything for that matter. All that matters is that God is omniscient and omnipotent and his word never returns void.
Yes, of course!
In fact, that is the crux of the Rescue Mission the Lord started so many hundreds of thousands of years ago.
Ego is what blinds us and keeps us asleep as spiritual children of God. When we give up Ego, we wake up as spiritual beings. We regain the continuity of consciousness that was ours before the disaster in the Garden. With this reawakening, when bodily death comes, consciousness continues in the spirit. Living in-spirit, you no longer need the human brain for thinking, the human eyes for seeing or the human life for living. This is the point of the Rescue Mission.
And this is why Noah's Flood was only an act of love and nothing more.
What scripture are you reading? "The lone77star Bible Cliff notes"? The Bible clearly states sin, not ego, has condemned us to an eternal punishment which we must pay unless we accept the atonement of Christ BEFORE WE DIE, no more chances, read it .
FROM: WATERSTAR. IN many Large Companies The BOSS IS THE BOSS and these days the Boss some how do what they feel like doing most Companies Shut down Large Factories and move it Over seas to other Countries and some how we are left outside with no job and we are not able to do one thing about it. IN the scope of Life and different Times God has done things different in certain Eras, so in that case not quite sure But Mystries of Mystries Jesus the Boss went to Hell and Preach to Noah Race but you are not from that ERA or that Race so it does not include You. We that are Living at this time also Has an ERA and we are living in a ERA that started almost 2000 years ago Called the Grace ERA or the Church age Started on the day of PENTECOST IN the time of Jesus Apostles ,on the day of Pentecost apostle Peter gave the Call to everyone who seek Eternal Life in acts Chapter 2 verse 38 in the Old King James Bible of what to do to be save From the Wrath of God,if you refuse the apostle Peter instruction Then there in NO CHANCE TO BELIEVE after death you are Lost for all of Eternity. in the writings of Paul the apostle it is stated THERE IS NO REPENTANCE IN THE GRAVE, it is best to accept Jesus now and be sure than to wait just to find out that you are in the wrong place at the wrong time with no hope for parole. The Rapture is near Jesus is coming Soon Lets get ourself ready now remember Noah Flood it was Late too Late for those who would not here the call of Noah it going to rain they all LAUGH at Noah. But it did rain and the Flood filled the whole Earth and there was a great cry but it was too Late. believe now this is your best Chance to accept.BY:WATERSTAR

Does God give anyone a chance to believe after death?

How can an ex-Christian still speak in tongues after losing faith / belief in their religion?This is a real question that I think people look up every once in a while - I did. That is where I found this YouTube video about a (sorry, very mad) ex-Pentacostal Preacher doing a rant about how he can...

You see lets make it very clear on this particular question, If the God you believe is in the skies, heavens, or somewhere only HE can see us. Lets say this statement was true.

I often feel like my Grandmother is still here with me, walking the halls and just being near. Is this allowed by GOD?
