Re: Ouija boards and talismen

I forgot to include my personal theory of "sleeping."

You know how when you fall asleep, and have a good night's sleep, you wake up and it's as if no time has passed?
My theory is that it FELT like the thief woke up and was together with Jesus "today" in paradise, but keep in mind that to God, a day is like a thousand years to you and me- (Psalm 90:4 and 2 Peter 3:8). We experience time one hour at a time in a forward moving line or continuum, but God created time, He transcends time, so if He experiences it, it's not like He's standing on a road, looking forward or back, like we do- He's outside of it, like holding a ball in His hand, He can perceive all of eternity all at once.

That's why, when we die, we don't have to worry about being trapped here as ghosts or stuck in purgatory like sitting in the dentist's waiting room with nothing to do but page through decades old magazines.It will already be forever-
" a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed."~1 Corinthians 15:52

Anyway, that's what I come away thinking when I read the Bible.
