A question

Invariably it seems that reports of near-death experiences involve a tunnel with a bright light at the end, perhaps an angel or deceased family member coming to take them toward the light.

I have yet to hear of a near-death experience in which the subject was being led to the gates of hell.

Does this mean that, if these near-death experiences reflect the true reality of things - that there is an afterlife and it's bright and peaceful, etc. - then we don't have to worry or wonder about whether we'll go to hell?  Or, alternatively, does it mean that all those who had these near-death experiences were pure in spirit - that one needs to be pure in spirit in order to have these experiences?
