COLTON SAID JESUS TOLD HIM HE HAD TO GO BACK.
The boy admitted to his father he didn’t actually want to go back.
STILL, COLTON SHARED THAT JESUS TOLD HIM HE WAS ANSWERING HIS DAD’S PRAYERS.
“I remember that prayer. That irreverent, disrespectful, that screaming God-prayer,” Todd admits. “It’s like, he’s answering THAT prayer?”
COLTON CLAIMS, “HEAVEN IS FOR REAL AND YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE IT.”
Among his vision, Colton recalls how everyone in heaven has wings, got to meet angels, and saw a rainbow hued horse.
IN 2010, TODD PUBLISHED “HEAVEN IS FOR REAL.”
It was written with Lynn Vincent, Sarah Palin’s ghostwriter.
THE BOOK WAS ON FOR 59 WEEKS (NON-CONSECUTIVE WEEKS) ON THE NEW YORK TIME’S BEST-SELLER LIST.
In April 2014, the film by the same name was released. It starred Greg Kinnear and Margo Martindale.
STILL, THERE ARE PLENTY OF PEOPLE, INCLUDING CHRISTIANS WHO QUESTION BOTH TODD’S AND COLTON’S CLAIM.
For one, the boy was never clinically dead.
HIS FATHER IS A PASTOR, THEREFORE, THE IMAGERY AND DESCRIPTION OF HEAVEN CAN BE ATTRIBUTED TO WHAT THE CHILD HEARD GROWING UP.
Furthermore, in his book Todd uses his son’s example of Christian love to preach that the only way to reach salvation is by loving Jesus.
CHRISTIANS MAKE UP ONLY 31 PERCENT OF THE WORLD POPULATION.
In his book, Todd admits his son never died but reasons it must have been a similar experience as those in the Bible when certain figures were taken into heaven for a revelation.
