This is part of an ongoing conversation that I've been having with @Trailblazer , and this topic was inspired by her.
Pretty standard question. According to almost every religion after you die you remain alive in spirit. It is already a given that you will die someday, so why is it okay to...
I love the Lakota chanting in this video for this occasion. The funeral doesn't start until 41 minutes into the video. After that it is more than 3 hours long, so you may not want to see all of it. The funeral was at 12:00 noon Eastern and 10:00 Mountain time in Custer, South Dakota. I watched...

2 Thessalonians 2:7
please, debate this.
For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

I watched a film recently called Naan Kadavul. It was pretty good, it's about a kid being left in a city in India just for him to become an Aghori. For those of you who do not know the Aghoris are a group of Hindu mystics who practice a lot of kind of spooky stuff. They hang out around...
Who hasn't heard of the four horsemen of the apocalypse?
Of course the book of Revelation is written in signs, or symbolic language, so even though we don't actually see these horsemen riding literally, can we not agree that they are indeed riding?

From the song: "Oh death, someone would pray
Couldn’t you call some other day
God's children prayed, the preacher's preached

When I die I don't want a standard funeral. I would like a sky burial. A sky burial is when your carcass is cut up into chunks and left out on a cliff or mountain top for the birds or other animals to devour. The whole idea of my carcass giving subsistence to others and being recycled intrigues...
INTRODUCTION to the luminal speed realm:

Hi! My name is Niki! I am a nursing student. I was given an assignment to conduct an interview with someone from another religion. Everyone I know is either not religious or is in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day saints. I need to interview someone who is NOT LDS.
