New York Times Best Seller – A Fraud

The book, The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven, is based on a lie, according its co-author Alex Malarkey. Alex, the subject of the book, purportedly died and returned from heaven at the age of 6, after having been involved in an auto accident.

First published in 2010 by Tyndale House, a major Christian publisher, the book has been reported to have sold more than 1 million copies. In an open letter, Alex has written,

I did not die. I did not go to Heaven. I said I went to heaven because I thought it would get me attention.

Those acquainted with Scripture, rather than human theology, were never deceived by the fraud. The Scriptures are clear that the dead are simply dead, and not in heaven, and thus can’t return to tell of their adventures.

… the dead know not anything … (Ecclesiastes 9:5).

… there is no work, or device, or knowledge, or wisdom in the grave where you are going (Ecclesiastes 9:10).

The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence (Psalm 115:17).

In death there is no remembrance of Thee: In the grave who shall give Thee thanks? (Psalm 6:4-5).
