Have you ever read the Bible?
Many years ago, I read the Bible, and I haven't quite looked at things the same since.
In the Bible, it mentions real places, real people, etc. It mentions angels coming to people in dreams. Jesus Christ was basically an exorcist. Demon-possessed people would be brought to Jesus, or he would encounter them, and command the demons out. People would be blind or mute, but when the demons left, they could see and talk again. Jesus would also heal physical illnesses, like leprosy.
Many people take the Bible very seriously. They see it written in the Bible, and just assume it's the truth. While I do believe its true, I do wonder what certain parts mean, and rather they were meant symbolically or literally.
I don't know if you've heard of Edgar Cayce, but I have a couple books about him. He was a psychic born in the 1800's. He said he would go into a trance to obtain information on virtually any subject. He said dreams are actually journeys into the spirit world. He said the subconscious is both in the body, and beyond the body, in the soul realms of timelessness. He said Jesus was a soul who gave humans a pattern for their souls to return to Heaven.
The Bible was written in Roman times, and even has a chapter called Romans. It was the Romans who crucified Jesus. This is obvious, but sometimes people forget, Christmas is Jesus Christ's birthday.
