What does the Bible mean by “The dead know nothing”?

Does the Bible contradict all the afterlife evidence found in near-death experiences?

"For the living know that they will die; But the dead know nothing, And they have no more reward, For the memory of them is forgotten." (Ecclesiastes 9:5)

The Bible can seem contradictory at times. Looking more deeply, we can get a better sense of what the Bible tells us. Read more about the Word of God.

Daily Inspiration

"You cannot be spiritually reborn without some knowledge of the new or spiritual life, of the true things that you ought to believe and the good things that you ought to do. You cannot learn these things on your own, because on your own you can comprehend things only through your physical senses. Your physical senses give you information about the material world and yourself, not about heaven and God. Spiritual knowledge comes only from revelation."
