The Bellator Christi Podcast begins its fifth season with a series on NDEs (“near-death experiencies”). In the first episode of the fifth season, Brian Chilton and Curtis Evelo discuss how NDEs fit within a biblical worldview. Can they find a home, or are they irreconcilably different? Some would claim that the two cannot mesh. However, Brian and Curtis argue that NDEs have no problem fitting within a biblical worldview, so long as one holds an accurate view of the intermediate state.
