Why do most people with near death experience go to heaven?

From description of almost all NDE, they describe seeing light, a place of comfort and tranquility…. If you believe in NDE is a glimpse into the afterlife, how do you explain that almost everyone is going to heaven instead of hell?
The reason I say heaven instead of hell is because some even describe seeing Jesus/Moses/Mary… also, hell wouldn’t be a place of comfort and tranquility now, would it?

As for myself, my religious beliefs do not entertain the thoughts of Hell even existing. As for Heaven, yes. But, with many NDE’s, there have been accounts of both. I have to agree with some of the other commentors when they say that the mere concept of Hell is bred into most people from a very young age. It was put in place by then leaders of religious communities to give a purpose to their religion. If you believe that some ancient demon is going to torment you for eternity if you do not follow these guidelines, you will follow… Read more »

You appear to assume that “seeing light, a place of comfort and tranquility” is “heaven”, do you not? Most (religious) people will classify such an experience as Heaven, since it may accurately concur their image of what “heaven” should be like. Heaven and Hell are most likely both man-made concepts and false assumptions, such as these, I believe. My believe is that to believe in Hell is to risk ending up in one, whereas believing neither Heaven nor Hell creates unlimited opportunities to visit and exist within the Astral. As you may realize, I am not a religious person and… Read more »

I flat lined on the operating table, I had no heart beat or blood pressure. I can tell you, I felt nothing and saw nothing. No lights or what is to be perceived as heaven or hell, just nothing. NDE is not actually dying, therefore people that have experienced NDE would not be seeing heaven or hell because they are not dead. They might be scared to death but to see “the other side” you would have to actually die.

When your brain is functioning normally it is selectively editing your perceptions. When you think you see, say, a dog running, what looks to you just like a film of a dog running being played in your brain is actually a series of still frames much like photos that your brain is seeing. It then takes all kinds of sensory data – images, sounds, smells etc and concludes that the dog is running. Now imagine that your senses are malfunctioning. You’re close to death. The sensory data input to your brain is faulty. Add to that that your brain is… Read more »

Imagining (not “seeing”) light and comfort don’t necessarily mean “heaven.” They’re the product of chemicals released in your brain as its desperately trying to keep itself alive when there’s a lack of oxygen and/or nutrients. “Calming” chemicals (endorphins) slow your heart rate and your use of oxygen, so chemicals that induce a “calm” feeling can slow use of oxygen enough to allow you to survive a minute or two longer than you might otherwise. And “light” is probably simply an overload of your brain’s ability to process information, since those same chemicals induce firing of neurons in your brain —… Read more »

There’s actually a scientific reason people feel like they are in “heaven” when they experience an NDE. When people are passing away, their body goes into shock, flooding their brains with endorphins. Most of the time, these people die. But the people who experience an NDE come back and tell us of their calming and happy feelings. Endorphins cause an opiate-like feeling of euphoria. Endorphins will be produced by your body during other great times of pain, pleasure, stress, and shock. You needn’t have an NDE to experience “heaven.”

Many people have told of going to hell. But when I read my bible, it clearly says that neither heaven or hell is a completed project yet. I had three NDA,s and each time I never went anyplace but nect to the ceiling watching the Dr,s and nurses trying franicly to get my heart started again, which they did, or I wouldn,t be typeing this now…lol

I have heard just as many about hell as heaven. There is a DVD offered by http://www.cbn.com called Life Beyond the Grave. There is equally as many about hell as heaven.

People who have gone to hell and are not just there for God to show them to tell others about it [Christians] are too scared out of their wits and totally block it out of their memory.

There are a few who do remember and were included in a book of near death experiences some 20 – 30 years ago. The name of the book and author escapes me but I recall it was written by a medical doctor.

For one man’s personal experience read 90 Minutes in Hell by Don Piper.

NDE’s by their definition are near death. My guess is that God let’s the NDE’s get a glimpse of the glory and love in store for those who accept Jesus Christ and His salvation. Mighty nice and Graceful of Him, now isn’t it? The NDEs spread the word of God’s beautiful Heaven and people take notice and some change and accept Christ. By the way. Those believers in God who died before Jesus came will be risen to Christ when He comes for His people. David will be in heaven, when Jesus comes again. You may even see him rise… Read more »

Because the heaven and hell you’re talking about has nothing to do with death. They have to do with controlling people in this life. You’ve been told that you have to “be good” in this life to avoid hell simply because that’s one way to get you to “be good.” Were you planning to be disappointed when you died and found out that hell was a flat-out lie?

One guy got shot in the head and went to hell, as i remember he was chained inside an abyss streched out, then the hand of God pierced the corner and rescued him!

How do you know most go to heaven? Where did you get your information? Perhaps those going to hell are less likely to tell their story?

Not all NDE’s are of heaven, some have been of hell and some have experienced both heaven and hell.. It’s just that those who have had negative NDE’s don’t want to talk about them much because they were so frightening.

If you were more informed, I think you’d rephrase your question.

A better question would be, “Of all the NDEs, why is it that only the one’s going to heaven get written about and published?”

There are many, many NDEs, and event pre-death experiences of people going to hell. They are not very popular because people don’t want to believe in hell. So the main place you can find them is in small paper-back history books that are now out of print.

Why do most people with near death experience go to heaven? no one goes to heaven and most ppl who claim to have experienced ndes claim to have had a culturally significant religious experience? do you even know what that means?

God’s Spirit, that is given to all who are born, is being returned to him which is where the light of love is, being Jesus Christ. But, each person shall be judged accordingly in the end.

What else would your mind hallucinate when it realizes you’re dying?

I live in Europe Belgium.

I play mmorpg’s.

Because of this I know this Swedisch chick who believes in the Norse Pagan Gods.

She had a near death experience once.

She saw all of her pagan Gods.

Now here is the funny part.

Having half a brain she realizes that that happened because she wanted that. You see what you want to see. It are hallucinations at best.

Difference between somebody from Sweden and the US…
