I thought I talked about this a couple months ago. People keep sending me emails about it, and I finally figured I’d write about it.
You know the story, the one about the little boy (Colton Burpo) who got sick, died, went to heaven and declared that “Heaven is real”. Colton’s dad Todd wrote a book of the boy’s stories. Colton was 4 when his appendix burst and now he’s 11. Over the course of a few years, he remembered “new” things that happened while he was in heaven.
And now the world is raising their hands in honor of a little youngster whose story is told through his father’s mind.
It’s magical and mysterious. Isn’t it great how god can work through a four year old’s father’s pen?
Oh, and that father happens to be a pastor of a little church.
All I can think is: if the proof of heaven is coming from a four-year-old boy, that’s a H U G E stretch.
But if that little boy’s pastor father is writing for the boy, fuggettaboutit.
Next impossible story please.
