In fact, there is validity in all interpretations : This -- and other relevant issues such as the underlying message of St. John’s writings that preparedness in faith and unconditional love of God shall result in salvation.

Near Death Experiences -- Are They Real ? : A 9 page research paper examining the validity of alleged Near Death Experiences (NDE). Since Raymond Moody coined the term with the publication of Life After Life in 1975, the entire issue has been under debate. Though some researchers maintain that the NDE is nothing more than a product of physiological changes the body undergoes when death is imminent, their scientific logic is found to be faulty. The body of knowledge surrounding the NDE is too vast to be dismissed because of our inability to clinically replicate the events encompassed by the NDE. That same inability does nothing to prevent the stars from existing and maintaining their positions, either. Those who have returned unshakably hold that their experiences were in fact very real, regardless of what some researchers want to say about those experiences. Thus, the writer of this paper makes a strong argument that NDEs are indeed, very real. Bibliography lists 9 sources. FREE Outline included. Nde.wps

Alcoholism / Sin .. Not A Disease? : A 26 page paper arguing that alcoholism, while manifesting physical symptoms and genetic changes, is not in itself a disease, but rather a sin. The genetic evidence that has been found quite likely is not the cause, but is rather the result of alcoholism, as those genetic defects have been found only in true alcoholics. While researchers are adept at describing the effects of other, less controversial, chemical compounds that arise and are manifested in changes of gene expression, they seem to be unable to apply the same methods of research to issues connected with alcoholism. Every recovering alcoholic who has been reconciled with his God, either through restitution of a prior relationship or his own first-time meeting understands the power of denial, and that denial of sin does nothing to diminish its existence.
