After Death Experiences
Several people have mentioned new “after death experience” books to me in the past few months. I have to say I don’t get very excited about them. I’ve read a few, but I’m just cynical enough to usually come away thinking “ok, you’ve had this experience, so….?” Especially in our current political environment, I just don’t give a lot of credibility to something simply because someone else says it’s so.
Greg Koukl talks about it in this 2.30 minute video. In his typically tactful,rational way he expresses his thoughts about authority – which is a key issue these days. Lots of people say things that are later revealed to be lies. They protest their own innocence only to be sentenced later while confessing their guilt. The media provides tons of half-truths which later, in a wider context, turn out to be untruths. We raise issues of “credibility”. What about issues of authority?
