One of the best quotes I have heard about Heaven is for real was from a blogger who said “Heaven is for real…Well Duh”.
I have read so many reviews and articles from godly men and women who have a big problem with this book and movie.
I couldn’t pass this up, what a great article in Answers Magazine from Answers in Genesis.
Are visits to Heaven for real?
A pastor’s book recounting his son’s visit to heaven rose to the top of the bestseller list and became a major motion picture. Christians were quick to spread the word, but could such visits be for real?
Colton’s descriptions of heaven are full of fanciful features and peculiar details that bear all the earmarks of a child’s vivid imagination. There’s nothing transcendent or even particularly enlightening about Colton’s heaven. It is completely devoid of the breathtaking glory featured in every biblical description of the heavenly realm.
Stories like Colton’s are as dangerous as they are seductive. Readers not only get a twisted, unbiblical picture of heaven; they also imbibe a subjective, superstitious, shallow brand of spirituality. Studying mystical accounts of supposed journeys into the afterlife yields nothing but confusion, contradiction, false hope, bad doctrine, and a host of similar evils.

Who has ascended into heaven and descended?
Who has gathered the wind in His fists?
Who has wrapped the waters in His garment?
Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is His name or His son’s name?
Surely you know!
John 3:13 answers “No one has ascended into heaven, but He who descended from heaven: the Son of Man.
Heaven is for real… Well Duh!
and that’s a beautiful thing!
Soli Deo Gloria
