Mormon Inquiry

This seems like a good post to highlight on Memorial Day: “I See Dead People,” at Faithful Dissident. It is a straight-up piece by an author who holds some doubts about the LDS religion but no doubts about the afterlife, based in part on some personal experiences related in the post. Here is the first paragraph.

One of the main reasons why I am able to maintain my faith despite doubt is because I believe very strongly in life after death. Exactly how the next life will be, I do not claim to know. I do, however, believe that there is one. I’ve tried to imagine sometimes that this life is really all there will ever be. But even on my most cynical days, I just cannot convince myself of it. A major reason for that is because of some amazing spiritual experiences related to death that I’ve heard from certain family members, close friends, or other sources. They’ve come in different forms: dreams, visions, feelings, and other experiences. I’m only going to list a few of them here.

Besides those noted in the post, there are several additional experiences noted in the comments. It’s always hard to know what to make of such experiences, but they are always a sobering read. At the very least, we never forget the departed.
