Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath SHEWED IT unto them.

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse..." Rom. 1:18-20
Agreed, the unsaved even use the very word "hell" in their vocabulary.

I guess what I'm trying to get across here is that I don't think God uses supernatural/paranormal experiences to lead men to Christ, such as near-death cases. Sure, He might shake up the reality of some people through bad accidents and funerals, etc, but give them a vision of heaven or hell? I just don't believe it. It could always be the Devil they're seeing as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14)??
