Those who want reliable information regarding what happens in the afterlife are best served to consult the Bible. Near-death experiences are hardly a way of ascertaining what happens after death in that a near-death experience and an actual death experience are two entirely different propositions. NDEs do not provide definitive knowledge regarding what happens after death in that NDErs by definition have not in actuality experienced biological death.
One should be highly suspicious of near-death experiences in that celestial travelers return with wildly divergent accounts of the afterlife. NDEs are predictably contextualized by the backgrounds and belief systems of those who experience them.
