Sunday 14th was to be a day at home but I got a call to take the service at Coatbridge Spiritualist Church because the medium was ill. Dave Nichol was sitting at the back of the church as he usually is these days. Dave, a well known and respected medium in the Lanarkshire area for several decades He has to take things a bit easier these days but he is still very enthusiastic about the spiritualism movement.
Tuesday night is was my pleasure to take the circle at Blantyre Spiritualist Church.
Wednesday was an afternoon meditation circle...
A question from Patrick; -
“I am totally confused by Spiritualism as you and your lot constantly chatter on about the Spirit World and never a mention of hell.”
Yes, we do constantly mention the Spirit World as we believe it is our next destination after we leave this physical body. Personally I do not believe in “hell”. I believe that ancient religious leaders used this word to describe a terrible place so they could have control over the masses. Do as we tell you or you will go to hell. That does not mean that those who do wrong in this life get away scot free when they move over to the Spirit World.
Patrick, I would like to draw your attention to the sixth of our seven principles “Compensation and Retribution hereafter for all the Good and Evil Deeds done on Earth”. We will have to answer for our misdeeds and pay for the error of our ways before we can reap the benefits of the Spirit World.
But I do believe there is a hell, several in fact, and they are on this level Look on the atrocities in recent years in Rwanda, Tibet, Burma and at the very moment in Libya and Syria.
