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.

Just like the Noah Movie which was anti scriptural we need to be aware of what Hollywood is promoting as Christian truth. If it does not line up with scripture it should be tossed out. (Col. 2:8; 2 Corinthians 10:5)

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.

Noah Movie: What Every Christian Needs to Know

Noah Movie: What Every Christian Needs to Know

The new Noah Movie by Darren Aronofsky starring Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson and Anthony Hopkins is out and is making an impact on all who watch it. There are tons of reviews out both from the Christian and Secular worlds.

I have not seen it and probably will not go to see it. I did find this article by Dr. Brian Mattson and I think that every Christian should read it to know what lies behind the movie.

He has done some solid research and lays out a good argument for the Noah Movie being grounded in 2nd century Gnosticism!

For more on Gnosticism and its beginnings I suggest you read  St. Irenaeus of Lyons: Against The Heresies. It is now on my list.

Dr. Mattson is a theologian, writer, speaker, singer/songwriter, recording artist, and avidly follows current events, cultural and political, as well as the Minnesota Twins Baseball Club.

He obtained a B.A. from Montana State University-Billings, an M.A.R. from Westminster Theological Seminary, and a Ph.D. in Systematic Theology from the University of Aberdeen (Scotland).

He now serves as Senior Scholar of Public Theology for the Center for Cultural Leadership  and as well serves as faculty for the Alliance Defending Freedom’s Blackstone Legal Fellowship and Collegiate Academy. He also co-host and produce Dead Reckoning, a weekly web video show and podcast.

You can also check him out here on his website Dr.Brianmattson.com.

Here is a teaser from his post titled: SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL

In Darren Aronofsky’s new star-gilt silver screen epic, Noah, Adam and Eve are luminescent and fleshless, right up until the moment they eat the forbidden fruit.

More than Music Pt. 1 DJ Wade-O Download. The new mixtape by DJ Wade-O and JahRock’n Productions.

This mixtape takes some of the biggest Christian Rap songs of the past year and mashes them up with classic Gospel, Hip Hop, Funk, Rock and Jazz Records.

DJ Wade-O and JahRock’n took the creativity one step further, as each mash-up combines songs that either have similar themes in content or have the same words in their title. Lecrae’s “Fakin’” is mashed up with Jr. Mafia’s “Get Money.” KB’s “Angels” is mashed up with Gospel-Great Richard Smallwood’s song of the same name. W.L.A.K.’s YHWH (is the King) is mashed up with Linkin Park’s “Wretches and Kings.”

The Birth of Jesus: The Meaning & Predictions

The Birth of Jesus: The Meaning & Predictons

“Lewis Sperry Chafer places the incarnation as one of the seven greatest events that have occurred in the history of the universe”. The New Unger’s Bible Dictionary.

In this post we will take a look at the Incarnation ( the Birth of Jesus). We will discuss its meaning and the prophecies of His birth from the Old Testament.

Meaning of the Birth of Jesus

When we talk about the birth of Jesus we are talking about the incarnation.

“The doctrine of the incarnation, briefly stated, is that the Lord Jesus Christ is one person with two natures indissolubly united, the one nature being that of the eternal Son of God, the other that of man, in all respects human, “yet without sin.” It includes the miraculous conception and birth of Christ.

The incarnation is absolutely without parallel in history. The fabled incarnations of pagan religions are at most only indications of the vague longing of humanity for union with the divine and are thus in some sense imaginative anticipations of the Christian reality.
