From time to time I watch NDE stories on youtube and at times I read them in books and magazines. I assume that some of them or most of them are truthful, but some are fabrications or distortions or exaggerations.
At times I have wondered if Brett Cameron does not know God and is in need of more than usual spiritual help from God. I wondered this because of what seems to be his very bad attitude with respect to telling the truth.
I was watching an NDE account this morning. There is a man who is now a minister of some type. His name is Peter Pangamore and he nearly died when he was 21 and camping and very cold.
He says he was out of his body and having a conversation with God and he requested to be able to stay alive so as to not hurt the feelings of the mom who had lost another family member.
Pangamore claims that God said to him, “I love your family and I love each person on earth with this fulness of love and forgiveness and knowing and mercy that you feel right now . . . and all will be well.”
You may remember that Julian of Norwich claimed that Jesus/God told her several times that all would be well.
At the time of the sentencing, Brett Cameron asked the court to put me in jail for 2 years . . .
The Bible says to do justice by having, if and when needed, a punishment that is similar to the offense or crime. Or, that is how many people interpret the eye for eye and tooth for tooth passages.
On Brett Cameron and his idea of the sentence, even if he were right that the pepper spray should be considered assault, it seems to me that the appropriate words are, “the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them.” Luke 9:56. However, the problem for that, maybe, is that it is alleged that these words are not in the original text!
So, the best one can do, if we go by the original text or likely original, is, “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” Luke 19:10.
I have my doubts that Brett Cameron knows God, but who am I to say? Are things black and white? If Brett prays, how do we reconcile that with what seems to be a lack of forgiveness and a preference to control and destroy?
