Christians: if hell is eternal, how are there near death experiences in which people go to hell and return?

Either you go to Hell forever as the scriptures say or you are arbitrarily released. And how can members of different religions claim to have near death experiences as well?

An NDE is a byproduct of the hallucinatory chemicals produced by the brain as it is losing oxygen. The key word in NDE is 'near,' as it isn't a real death. Some people see heaven, some hell, and others see aliens. It's all dependent on the person and the experiences and mindset they have had in their life. Even atheists have NDEs.


hell is imaginary. people need to stop the goddam booger-eating and grow up! NDE's have been scientifically debunked for so long now, I forget who was president before the last moron on earth thought they were still real.


NDE are hallucinations induced by lack of oxygen to the brain. They have no relationship at all to reality and certainly don't prove any of the various religious dogmas about the conditions of a "life" after death. Rolls eyes

It was popular for a short while to write books about ndes where someone visits heaven or hell. I remember a few years ago, the kid who was a subject of a popular "I went to heaven" book confessed that it was a hoax. They probably all are, if you ask me. I don't put a lot of thought into those books. I know my Father loves me. He doesn't want me ending up in hell, and he loves you too.


If you were not being warned you would die and go to Hell. The same God that judges you would not be tricked so that you are headed to Hell and never make it. It MUST be a warning.


Even in St Theresa's day that would be a Mercy and a Warning.


"Near death experiences" are not death. They're fake. . Death leads to immediate heaven or hell, depending only on whether you believed in Jesus for eternal life, or not. . Jesus loves you and wants to bless your life freely :) Most of all, Jesus wants you with Him forever, and not in hell. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that Jesus is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing in Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in Jesus to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven when you die, because you believe in Jesus! It is too late to be saved, after death.

Hell is the GRAVE nothing more Nothing less, what U are referring to is the Lake of Fire. That is eternal

The near death experiences that I've heard of people are deciding whether to die and go to the light which is perceived to be heaven or to go back to their body and continue to live in this world.


"Hell" is not the Lake of Fire. The Lake of Fire is where those who reject Christ will go for all eternity. The bible actually says specifically that in the end of days, after the 1000 year reign of Christ that he will release Satan from hell for a time, showing that indeed there are examples of those coming out of hell once more. Also, I cannot speak to those accounts that claim sight beyond, as I did not see it myself. Even if I did, I wouldn't be so sure as to why I was shown such things, but if it was from God, it would be for the edification of the body of Christ. So if a person went and had a near-death experience and turned their life from evil to putting their trust in Christ, this I might believe. If however he was laughing and saying how cool it was in hell, I wouldn't likely believe him in what he saw as hell, or the sinner's grave, is described as a place of corruption and darkness.


I am one such person that had a near-death experience. What makes my experience unique is that I was raised as one of Jehovah's witnesses and Jehovah's witnesses do not believe in hell hell fire eternal torment etc etc it's complete nonsense to them. So there's absolutely no reason why I should have believed in hellfire! Later in my life I fell away from Christianity I became an atheist I became a crack cocaine addict I smoked too much crack and I died I woke up in hell. You can purchase the book if you want I'm not promoting it I didn't even write it I'm just the one that the book is talking about! I was gone 20 minutes no heartbeat no brain activity no medical reason whatsoever that I should still be alive. When I was in front of God he said it's one in billions did I ever take out of hell. But I know that you're going to talk cuz you do a lot of it! So go tell people what you experienced! And that's what I've been doing. Jesus is quite real! So is hell!

Near death experience isn't death, so they may have glimpsed hell, but weren't condemned to it ..yet.


Jehovah knows what happens to us when we die, and he has told us that when a person dies, his life ends. Death is the opposite of life. So when someone dies, his feelings and memories do not keep on living somewhere else. When we die we can’t see, we can’t hear, and we can’t think anymore.

Truth is within you

Death is imaginary. Hell is imaginary. This physical life is a dream, but we think they are real until we see life differently. That takes truly being born again.
