    Most near death experiences make people more spiritual but some become more religious, why is that?

    Last I saw of you was back in the beginning of February. If I'm not mistaken you were on the same subject back then and had already started multiple threads here and as another member noticed on other sites as well. Are we going to discuss it again? :rolleyes:

    Lol, Pandora...

    To answer your question, Ask...I assume it's because they need to be told how to be spiritual, instead of being themselves. So being religious is their way of being spiritual...it's what they have been told and what they believe. Beliefs make up a huge part of our reality, so being religious to them, may be their equivalent of being spiritual and doing the right thing.

    I'm not religious, and my NDE didn't make me religious....but it did make me want to be a better person, and to learn more about life and the afterlife, ect...and about myself and others...it actually made me want to help others, and to see passed their flaws, hate, and meanness....and see them in a different light, from a higher perspective. It also helped me to forgive myself, amd have the same understanding for my own shortcomings.

    Why would we know why? What do you think the answer is?
