So the kid who co-wrote with his father, "The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven" which chronicled his "death" while in a 2 month coma, ascent into Heaven, and his conversations with Jesus and even Satan, has recanted his claims and admitted that it was a total hoax.
I am constantly astounded by the whole "heaven tourism" genre of stories, books, and at least one movie, by kids who claim they've been to heaven and back. Ostensibly people believe their charades because they're innocent children incapable of guile.
Trust me, I made stuff up constantly at that age, but not for attention as these kids do, but just to stay out of trouble.
When I was in the second grade we lived in Tifton, Ga. My friend and I were very late coming home so we told his mom that a man had stopped his car, chased us down the alleys behind our houses, and we ran and hid until he left. Instead of being mad, she hugged us, gave us delicious snacks, and a short lecture about strangers. What we omitted from our harrowing tale of survival and pluck, was that he chased us because we pelted his car with crab-apples as he drove by. My point is that kids will make up all kinds of things for all kinds of reasons. It's up to the adults to discern reality from a ripping good yarn.
Getting back to the point, I'm not going to limit God as to how he tantalizes us, but bringing comatose kids up to heaven and then sending them back just doesn't make sense to me.....any more than do Catholics witnessing stigmata and images of Mary in their french toast. It all just seems highly implausible to me.
Does this make you want to convert to Christianity?
