I am open to all opinions...that is what I want.

My opinion is that NDE's are real experiences, it is determining exactly what they are that perhaps presents the difficulty.

My personal belief is that if they are spiritual, they are meant to be decifered by that person alone and shouldn't be asserted to mean something for others within their doctrinal bias.

auntieannie, I'd love to hear about your NDE as well if you're willing to share.

I've held this belief since I was a little boy. I remember thinking about how there were all these religions, yet I didn't choose mine... it was forced on my by my parents. I asked my mom if a hypothetical Chinese boy who was raised by Buddhist parents and was therefore Buddhist his entire life would go to hell, and she said, "yes, he'll go to hell". I was probably in about 3rd grade at this time, but I didn't believe my mom. It didn't make sense that any god would be so cruel.

If you share near death experiences who dies first, and then comes back to tell about it to the other, how are you guys going to decide who goes first and how are you going to do it, ax, club, poisin, maybe both jump a bridge and see who comes back first,

I prefer faith in Jesus, it is not always safe, but for sure if He doesn't bring me back, at least I will be in heaven when I cross that bridge, lots of laughs, we not just know heaven and hell are real, it is so funny for it just can't be that a sinner would get their, it takes faith in the cross, don't have Gods Spirit don't have Him, this has just got to be the devil if a Buddist will think He will spend eternity with Jesus Christ,

I think this is like the movies of all the hell and supernatural crossings people like so much, and to think all that is fun for people, messing with death, when Jesus offered life,
