"Life Reviews" after death.
« on: May 20, 2011, 05:14:26 PM »
I was just reading an interesting article about the "life reviews" that those who go through near death experiences claim that we all get after we die.  Is this belief consistant with the Orthodox (Or Catholic) understanding of the afterlife?

A life review is a phenomenon widely reported as occurring during near-death experiences, in which a person rapidly sees much or the totality of his or her life history in chronological sequence and in extreme detail. It is often referred to by people having experienced this phenomenon as having their life "flash before their eyes".

Men may dislike truth, men may find truth offensive and inconvenient, men may persecute the truth, subvert it, try by law to suppress it. But to maintain that men have the final power over truth is blasphemy, and the last delusion. Truth lives forever, men do not.
-- Gustave Flaubert
