If we don't know what happens when we die and..

the closest we've come to knowing is reported NDE's, should we trust them? If NDE's are true death experiences and people from both Christian and non-Christian relgions have had heavenly experiences as well as hellish experiences, shouldn't we re-define what makes us worthy to go to heaven? Could it be that there are many paths to heaven and no one correct belief or religion? Could it be that to join in with the uncoditonal love, we must ourselves love unconditionally? No more judgement? No more pointing fingers? NO more pointing out faults, rights and wrongs, just loving others compassionately and unconditionally? Isn't that what Jesus' message was all along?

  • Actually there have been people that have died heart brain and all and have come back to life.... one was dead 90 mins had heavenly encounters and came back and told about it. His name is Don Piper. He was in a wreck and it took them that long to remove him from the wreck. Incredible story. Another story I heard a man was dead for a long time like 24 hrs or so... in a body bag and a man came into tend to him and he came back to life that guy that saw this ran for his life... scared him so bad but yes he had a tag on his foot and all .... incredible.
    Heidi and Rolland Baker have rocked babies back to life some were dead 3 three days.... know what brought them back.... LOVE the incredible power of Gods love pouring out of Heidi's heart! I mean these babies and children were DEAD!

  • Since people have had NDEs when they were not in a life threatening situation, I wouldn't trust them at all. People in space flight simulators have had the "tunnel of light" experiences when they passed out from the blood being pulled from their brains. NDEs are a sign that the brain is in distress, not a glimpse of heaven.

  • No you can't trust them because they are nothing more than hallucinations.  There are many many  people who have these hallucinations before death that are not religious in any way.  Most of them are a mish mash of memories.  It is the minds way of shutting down and preparing to let go.

  • The brain is still largely an enigma. NDE's could just be the random firing of electrical impulses in the brain as it dies- we don't KNOW.

  • Just wanted to point out that NDEs are NEAR death experiences. The person is dead in the sense of no heartbeat, but is not brain dead- if they were, they could not be brought back to tell about it! It's possible that the typical NDE is just the brain in shutdown mode... what happens after that no one gets to come back and tell.

  • the lady that recently gave birth and died, had cpr and did not respond and the doctors were going to clean her up, her heart just started beating again, they asked her if she saw something and she said no, just like she were sleeping.
