Billy Graham Rebukes Critics’ Claiming ‘Glimpses of Heaven’ Before Death Are ‘Hallucinations or Chemical Reactions in Brain’

Evangelist Billy Graham pushed back against assumptions that peoples’ claims of having “glimpses of heaven” before they die are actually just a “hallucination or chemical reaction in the brain,” saying, instead, that he believes they are divine in nature.   Graham’s comments about these “heaven” experiences came after he received a question from a woman who said that her uncle believes that her aunt had one such vision before her death. The woman expressed skepticism and asked whether her

aunt was merely suffering from a hallucination. “Although it’s unusual, God does give some people a glimpse of Heaven’s glory just before they die,” Graham responded in a post on The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association website. “As the stones thrown by his enemies rained down upon him, Stephen — the first Christian martyr — “looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God” (Acts 7:55).” Graham went on to say that he doesn’t buy critics’ claims that it’s all just a chemical reaction and said that he believes it is actually a “God-given glimpse into eternity” — something that God uses to show people that eternity is real and that Jesus is waiting for us. READ MORE
