‘Boy Who Came Back From Heaven’ Says He Didn’t...

 

 https://www.courthousenews.com/boy-who-came-back-from-heaven-says-he-didnt/

 

WHEATON, Ill. (CN) – A quadriplegic man who emerged from a coma in 2004 claims Christian publisher Tyndale House published a fake near-death story about him going to heaven, which was concocted by his father after they survived a severe car accident.

 

Alex Malarkey, 19, claims in a lawsuitfiled Monday in Dupage County, Ill., that Tyndale House Publishers has made millions of dollars from a book his father wrote that falsely claimed he died and went to heaven, where he spoke to Jesus and the devil.

 

Published in 2010, “The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven,” a New York Times bestseller, sold over 1 million copies and spawned an audio CD, DVD documentary and a TV movie deal. But Malarkey, who depends solely on Social Security payments to get by, has not seen a dime of revenue, according to the complaint.

     What???  I can't believe this isn't true.

 

     I'm pretty sure we here all fell for this when the news originally broke all those years ago and to hear this now is just devastating.

 

     At least all the others journeys into heaven and/or hell are certainly real so I/we can take comfort in that.  It's only this story that was used to evangelize and line someone's pockets.

Greed getting in the way of an otherwise perfect money making scheme.

Wait a second ... he claimed to have talked to the Devil in heaven? Does that mean hell is a just a suburb of heaven?
