eBooks Review - The Bible and the Near-Death Experience
The Bible and the Near Death Experience is an attempt to make sense of what happens after death.
Moses U. Colbert
Lena VanAusdle does not recommend this.
Kindle Edition, pages
Find it on Amazon The book, "The Bible and the Near Death Experience," unfortunately, is very short on Bible, and heavy on opinion. The author, Moses U. Colbert, has a unique voice and writing style, which could be considered engaging, however, the improper usage of words and grammar detract from this considerably.
The basic premise of the book is that there is a spirit in man (true), that we don't totally understand (true), but this spirit is connected in a very complicated way to our soul (that we don't understand), and that our bodies make up a third portion of our being (with our soul and spirit), just as the trinity. The Trinity doctrine is a false doctrine, and Mr. Colbert's explanation of the body, soul and spirit is riddled with fallacy as well.
Occasionally the author will say something true and profound, "as long as a Christian lives, he or she will at some point in their life struggle with the sin nature. What we accomplish or do not accomplish in our Christian lives will not achieve perfection" ( pg . 60). Unfortunately these truisms are surrounded by misconceptions and misinterpretations of what the Bible truly teaches. I don't doubt that Mr. Colbert is sincere, nor do I doubt that his recounting of his experiences is accurate, unfortunately, he is calling evil good (Isaiah 5:20Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
See All...) by attributing what seem to be encounters with demons, as experiences with God.
Mr. Colbert states, "...I understand that my life is not my own. It's not about what I want. It's about my relationship with God, how much I love him, and sharing that love and respect with others" ( pg . 62). It is obvious that this was the motivation for the writing of this book, unfortunately, that love is misguided in its expression.
