I usually scroll past articles that promise a first-hand account of the afterlife from someone who had a near-death experience but returned to the land of the living. I almost clicked past this article, too–it’s about a priest who “died” after suffering a heart attack–but I hit the wrong key and ended up scrolling deep into the story. That’s where it got funny-weird.
Hold on. Back up.
In a series of TikTok posts, Gerald Johnson details his trip to Hades in 2016. It did not get a good review. “I was there and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. I don’t care what he did to me. No one deserves that…The things I saw there are indescribable. It brings up so many difficult feelings when I talk about it.”
On his trip, Father Johnson encountered a demon riding a poor burning bug-eyed soul like a donkey. That was bad enough, but then he entered a second section of Hell.
The Jerusalem Post reports on Hell’s Music Room from Hell: “He says he heard songs there like Rihanna’s ‘Umbrella’ and Bobby McFerrin’s ‘Don’t Worry Be Happy.’ Sounds nice, right? No. He said that it’s not the original artists who sing the songs, but a group of demons that use the words to torture us.
“He added that ‘every word of every song was made to torture you for the fact that you didn’t worship God through music while you were on Earth.'”
Yikes. Time to repent before it’s too late.
