Near Death Experiences
No one has actually died, and come back to tell us about it... or have they?
There are many near-death experiences that have been recorded, and any conversation about death has to take a look at some of the amazing stories you can find about folks who have been so close to death that they have a story to tell. Let's hear from some of them. One common thread from many of these folks is... they no longer fear death.
"I knew with total certainty that everything was evolving exactly the way it should and that the ultimate destiny for every living being is to return to the Source, The Light, Pure Love.."
- Juliett Nightengale, near-death experience
"As each second passed there was more to learn, answers to questions, meanings and definitions, philosophies and reasons, histories, mysteries and so much more, all pouring into my mind. I remember thinking, 'I knew that, I know I did, where has it all been?'"
- Virginia Rivers describing her near-death experience
"I now feel that my life is totally guided by God ... To me it was a case of total surrender and total freedom."
- Janet, near-death experience
"The "hell" that I experienced was the pain, anguish, hurt and anger that I had caused others, or that I suffered as a result of my actions/words to others. "Hell" was what I had created for myself and my own soul through turning my back on unconditional love, compassion and peace."
- Tina, a near-death experience
"Hell is a state of being we create by being away from God until we choose to return to him. It is a state totally devoid of love."
- Sandra Rogers, near-death experience
Hell: an eternal abode of the spiritual dead; a place where sinners and unbelievers go after death for torment, and eternal punishment.
Fr. Brooks Keith explains Hell with these words: "Perhaps the most chilling and accurate description of Hell is 'the place where God is absent.' "
So, Hell has two purposes:
1. A place where evil is contained.
2. A place of confinement for those who do not want a relationship with God.
