No, the bible is not enough. God didnt die the day the last words of revelation were penned.
Boy who 'came back from Heaven' never went, LifeWay pulls book
Thank you. You have made a point that most people in religious circles seem to think is heresy. I am always saddened and amazed at the reaction I get when I talk about the New Message that I try to teach people, especially from the Evangelical Christians I run into. You would think that God had died over years ago, and could not possibly have more to say to mankind. They just tell me that God would not speak to a woman or give a new message because His Son was and is the only truth.
They refuse to consider that it is man who is limiting God, not God limiting man. I find your posting refreshingly honest and straight forward.

Thank you again for saying it. Alex says that the Bible is the truth and that anything written by man cannot be infallible. Excuse me?
Sorry, this content is not available in your region.
Make up your mind, son. Either the Bible is infallible, or it is written by men and therefore it cannot be infallible. And yet it was a big seller, a huge seller. That just goes to show that most Christians have no clue about theology or the Bible. Truth or not, what bugs me about this whole thing is the protestations of biblical accuracy. A life after death experience for those who come back, if they are real who the heck am I to doubt that?
If it did, then that makes God the obedient servant of humans, which is an odd concept.
My shorter comment would be: what does the bible have to do with it? Simply, the father did it for money, but money and influence is ultimately the root reason for all miracle claims, religious or not. I cannot imagine that any non-believers believed it. Only those already brain washed would accept the miraculous story. Since this matter does involve specific incidents of admitted fabrication, lies about having had such an experience, how could you come to that conclusion? That some fabricate stories of such experiences and present them as if true is not to say no one ever has such experiences.
No matter how remarkable their experience, if they speak of it, tell others about it, they are at once dismissed as just another fabricator, like Alex, trying to get attention. You are correct. There is no absolute guarantee that there is no authentic supernatural experience. However, as David Hume observed one should weigh the probabilities. We have, under well-observed circumstances, absolutely no convincing evidence of supernatural occurrences. In poorly-observed, and often backed with contradictory testimony, claims of supernatural events or appearances.
Personally, I have observed many instances of fabricated or mistaken reports. On the other hand, the laws of nature appear to work with unfailing continuity.
That someone either lied or was mistaken about an occurrence? He said that he had died, and gone to heaven, and returned again. His father became both rich and famous from his best-selling book The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven , after the boy's enlightening testimony. The book even ended up on Amazon's top best-sellers list. The original description of the book read:. In , Kevin Malarkey and his six-year-old son, Alex, suffered an horrific car accident. The impact from the crash paralyzed Alex-and medically speaking, it was unlikely that he could survive. But two months later, Alex awoke from a coma with an incredible story to share.
Of events at the accident scene and in the hospital while he was unconscious.
To heaven and back
Of the angels that took him through the gates of heaven itself. Of the unearthly music that sounded just 'terrible' to a six-year-old.
And, most amazing of all Of meeting and talking to Jesus. As you see heaven and earth through Alex's eyes, you'll come away with new insights on miracles, life beyond this world, and the power of a father's love. But as it happens, the book won't be selling any more. Alex, who co-authored the book himself, has officially recanted his tale of going to heaven, followed by putting a stop at the retails of the best-seller book.
This is his current testimony:. Please forgive the brevity, but because of my limitations I have to keep this short. I did not die. I did not go to Heaven. I said I went to heaven because I thought it would get me attention.
