In this episode, host Curtis Childs from the Swedenborg Foundation and featured guests take ten questions from viewers and provide insights with the help of eighteenth-century scientist and mystic Emanuel Swedenborg’s spiritual writings.
Ten original viewer questions featured in this episode:
- What if your last days on earth you caused more pain than your lifetime and left your children a legacy of anger and divided a family? How do you just get to go to heaven in a loving community?
- Does Swedenborg talk about the Higher Self?
- If God is omniscient then why would He allow evil? Why did He just not create anything He knew would be bad?
- How do evil spirits get a second chance at Redemption? Reincarnation has been presented as a way for evil spirits to redeem themselves by coming back again and again until they got everything corrected.
- If you want to live in hell, do you feel your soul or body?
- I am wondering how ES would speak of free will vs. the effects of spirits both good and evil.
- So is Swedenborg saying that our thoughts are not our own but they all come from the Spirit World???
- My late wife was a loving, kind and very generous lady, but she did not believe in a GOD. Is she destined to go to hell or will I meet her in heaven?
- What do angels look like? Are they huge?
- Hi, I’m a new listener. How do you stop negative self-talk and live in the light?
