A Case for the Soul

Near Death Experiences

Why on earth as a Christian would I make a defence for near-death experiences? I realised many Christians were interested and discovered that there is a case to be made. There is evidence here of a life beyond just our physical body, a soul. But one clause, we are still within this world, and not quite the afterlife (from case result data). 

The minimal case here is one for an immaterial soul that transcends the body (But it’s not a case for people going to heaven/hell and coming back). This is a supporting the dualism argument for Christianity in the soul which inevitably ties into the resurrection as a reinforcing argument.

The Case for NDEs

Putting it all together, what can we pitch?


I pulled out a collection of videos by Gary Habermas, THE expert when it comes to the resurrection and being a Christian, he provides so much clarity in this fog of confusion on why we as Christians can be pro-NDE and how NDEs are pro-Christianity.
