With over 4500 NDE reports published on the Internet, the Near Death Experience Research Foundation (NDERF) website is a rich resource for probing important questions. Jody Long, who maintains its website, has investigated the known identities of persons met in the afterlife. She found that Jesus Christ was most commonly encountered. Apart from Jesus, no other founder of a religion was reported. NDERF is not a Christian website, so these results must assume unbiased credibility.

We welcome and encourage all people of all backgrounds, nationalities, countries, and religions to read and participate on the website.’)

It is therefore no surprise that forces of evil are trying to break down its importance, definition and significance.

I looked at Him and told Him, ‘I don’t want to leave. I want to stay with you.’

He told me, ‘I know this. If you stayed, this is what would happen to your children and husband.’

I saw flashes of the consequences of my early departure from their life. In the very moment that I said that I could not do that to them, I was instantly back in my body with such a jolt.

Why is telepathy the chosen mode of communication in the afterlife? Jesus explained this to a very new arrival in Paradise — Laura Moody.

Then I was with HIM, enveloped in such a great light and love it defies description. And there
