Near death or after life? About as close as I've come was a head on wreck or I guess it could have all gone wrong when my appendix burst. Spent 8 days in the hospital and a few more months recovering at home from that one.
If you want to hear about after life,a guy here in the neighborhood had one of those that didn't go like the other ones you hear about. He told me this one first hand and has told the same story word for word to my wife and others around the neighborhood.
He has diabetes so bad that he lost a foot,he's on dialysis almost every day because his kidneys have shut down. Going on a year ago he had to have a triple bypass. He said they only gave him a 10% chance of living through it. He looked me right in the eye afterword and said he didn't care if anybody believed him or not,but he said "I saw the gates of h#ll". Said he saw the gates of Heaven too. A few minutes later I asked him if he was serious about seeing the gates of h#ll. He said "yes sir I am and I don't ever want to see that again". He's never been a religious man,so I have no reason to doubt him.
It's kind of a catch 22. When it comes right down to it,he's always been one of the biggest liars I've ever known,so that's why I believe if anybody WOULD go to h#ll it would be him.
