QUESTION: What does OBE mean?


OBE stands for "out of body experience" - a feeling or experience of leaving one's body and perceiving the world and oneself. People claim to experience OBEs at different points in their lives and some people will never experience one. Influence of drugs, illness, or anesthetic sometimes cause people to experience an out of body experience. Others claim to be able to induce the experience.

These events are said to be very clear and vivid and not like a typical dream. People also claim that OBEs give them more spiritual enlightenment. They sense feelings of energy, vibrations, floating or soaring, and sometimes hear buzzing or other noises.

Near death experiences are sometimes referred to as OBEs. They are most commonly described as going through a dark tunnel and seeing a bright light at the end. Others describe a "life review" during the experience. So what causes OBEs? What do we know about them? Are they mystical in nature? Are they evil?

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
