The Heaven is for Real movie is out in theaters and many Christians are promoting it. My point of this post is not to review the movie or the book but to bring awareness to the fact that it does not line up with scripture.

Description of the Movie
Based on the #1 New York Times best-selling book of the same name, HEAVEN IS FOR REAL brings to the screen the true story of a small-town father who must find the courage and conviction to share his son’s extraordinary, life-changing experience with the world.
The film stars Academy Award® nominee and Emmy® award winning actor Greg Kinnear as Todd Burpo and co-stars Kelly Reilly as Sonja Burpo, the real-life couple whose son Colton (newcomer Connor Corum) claims to have visited Heaven during a near death experience.
Colton recounts the details of his amazing journey with childlike innocence and speaks matter-of-factly about things that happened before his birth … things he couldn’t possibly know. Todd and his family are then challenged to examine the meaning from this remarkable event… ( This is the description taken from the movies official Facebook Page)
Is it Scriptural
Proverbs 30:4 ask the question ” Who has ascended into heaven and descended?”
John 3:13 answers no one but the Son of Man.
