If anyone "twist" Scripture, it is because they have to so they can support their erroneous beliefs...such as is being done by the Tiger Lily...<quoted text>
Oxbow, don't you think all of us (or all religions)twist scripture to say what we want it to say?
Also, if you can answer this, let me know. I have been very sick, and hospitalized twice within a couple of weeks (due to dangerously low sugar - usually it's sky high) and fell into unconsciousness, my husband found me on the floor and called 911) I was totally out of it, don't remember a thing, it was just a deep, dreamless sleep - nothing to be afraid of - couldn't death be just like that? Nothingness? If so, it's nothing to fear.
Love and the best of luck to you and yours.
Thank you for sharing your experience...I have had a similar experience, but of a different source.
I was severely wounded near Wonju. I came as close to dying as it is possible. There was no sense of panic...I felt no pain...only a feeling of serenity...
