Topic: Two memorable dreams...
I have had a lot of strange dreams, like you all have probably too.
One was when I was a Christian...Although I do not regard the Bible as inerrant anymore, as there are too many contradictions and I do not believe in "religion," something still makes me wonder about the truth in Christ, because of this dream.
I dreamed that I actually saw Christ face to face. Some figures that I perceived as good were behind christ.
He said something along the lines of, "Hi, Chris...I am real. Do not worry. This is all true."
This was during a time in high school when I was having doubts about the validity of the character of Christ.
It was not a regular dream. The dream felt totally real, nothing like I had every felt before. I woke up that morning and all day I was happy and energetic because it felt so real.
In the dream, Christ said, "You are going to wake up soon and you will lose this feeling. Just remember that I am real and remember this dream..."
I certainly lost the feeling of euphoria that is was 100% true in the dream, but I will never forget the dream. How can I reconcile this sort of dream with all the facts that point against Christ even existing, let alone rising from the dead? And if he did, do you think that mainstream Christianity is the only way to meet this power?? I don't.
My second dream was one of a space shuttle crashing. I vividly remember the space shuttle launching, then starting to arch downward, and then crashing into the ground. The next morning I woke up and the Columbia had crashed...I heard Art Bell later state on his show that many people had a similar dream. What do you all think about collective dreaming/prophetic dreams...
