The (fake) Priest Who Met God

A Catholic priest from Massachussetts was officially dead for more than 48 minutes before medics were able to miraculously re-start his heart has revealed a shocking revelation that will change everything you once believed…

The 71-year-old cleric Father John Micheal O’neal claims he went to heaven and met God, which he describes as a warm and comforting motherly figure…

The elderly man claims that he has clear and vivid memories of what happened to him while he was dead. He describes a strange out-of-body experience, experiencing an intense feeling of unconditional love and acceptance, as well as being surrounded by an overwhelming light.

He claims that at that point in his experience, he went to heaven and encountered God, which he describes as a feminine, mother-like “Being of Light”.

“Her presence was both overwhelming and comforting” states the Catholic priest. “She had a soft and soothing voice and her presence was as reassuring as a mother’s embrace. The fact that God is a Holy Mother instead of a Holy Father doesn’t disturb me, she is everything I hoped she would be and even more!”

While the priest had a beautiful and profound experience, he was missing a detail that massively underestimates God. God is not the form but rather that which gives rise to all forms. So God will appear in the most appropriate way for that circumstance and person. God is not limited to one sex or visage but rather appears as everything we experience. The priest then compounds the error.

“I wish to continue preaching” says the elderly cleric. “I would like to share my new knowledge of the Mother, the Son and the Holy Ghost with all catholics and even all Christians. God is great and almighty despite being a woman…”  more **

Oops – he’s just replaced Father with Mother and mushed his experience into the wrong context, beyond his experience. How about Father, Mother, & Child. On earth as it is in heaven. Patriarchy turned Mother into a ghost. A greater vision recognizes God in all of them.

    Well – turns out this story was a fake. Went mainstream but the original was just made up.

    However, it still serves as a good example of the way people can distort things from one experience when they don’t have a larger understanding.
