As many of you probably know, the author of the book, The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven, has recanted his story and admitted it was all fictional.
Now the young man who wrote Heaven Is For Real is speaking up, but in contrast he is standing by his story. As he puts it on his blog: “I still remember my experience in Heaven.”
My question from the beginning has been — how do you come back from a place that doesn’t exist?
I admit I haven’t read either book, but it’s not too hard to figure out the content. I’ve read enough reports by those who have shared their “visions” after experiencing a NDE (Near Death Experience) to have a pretty good idea of what they think they saw.
What I find interesting is how “Christian” these stories are. The visions and accounts of what the person saw are right out of the bible. But what’s even more amazing is the number of NON-Christian people who are totally taken in by these stories!
I suppose it has something to do with what we want to believe.
Or more likely, there will never be a lack of gullible people.
