Seeking Mr. Rotten

My search for God and His heavenly kingdom seems to be going in a different direction than most others when it comes to spiritual transformation. Although I am a follower of Emanuel Swedenborg’s theology, I even seem to be moving … Continue reading

Space aliens are turned off by most Christian evangelism

One of the most fantastic claims made by the scientist/theologian Emanuel Swedenborg was that he had constant access to people existing in the spiritual realm and heaven—for almost three decades. And Swedenborg was not limited to individuals from just this … Continue reading
