This should clear up a muddy controversy. . .

Boy Who Claimed He Visited Heaven Reads Bible and Recants Story; LifeWay to Pull Book From Stores

LifeWay Christian Stores has come under fire for selling a book based on a boy who claimed he visited heaven and who is now saying that the story is false.

The book, titled The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven, has been available since last year and tells the story of 6-year-old Alex Malarkey who suffered a horrific car accident in 2004. The crash paralyzed Alex and it was unlikely he’d survive after slipping into a coma. He awoke two months later and claimed that angels took him through the gates of heaven to meet Jesus.

Malarkey addressed the validity of the story in a letter titled “An Open Letter to LifeWay and Other Sellers, Buyers, and Marketers of Heaven Tourism, by the Boy Who Did Not Come Back From Heaven.”

“I said I went to heaven because I thought it would get me attention. When I made the claims that I did, I had never read the Bible,” he explained. “People have profited from lies, and continue to. They should read the Bible, which is enough. The Bible is the only source of truth.”

He also laid out what he now believes is the clear path to salvation in the letter.

“It is only through repentance of your sins and a belief in Jesus as the Son of God, who died for your sins (even though he committed none of his own) so that you can be forgiven may you learn of Heaven outside of what is written in the Bible… not by reading a work of man,” he stated.

Modern day activism, occultic spirituality and idolatry are what today’s so called biblical movies are made of. Is it all part of the last days deception? See these reviews about the new Noah and Son of God productions…

The Noah movie:

The Noah Movie Deception and the Last Days
By: Joe Schimmel

Did you know, according to Hollywood, that the main reason God destroyed the ancient world with a flood was because of a lack of environmental activism and overpopulation? Did you know that Noah was a liberal eco-terrorist and the world’s “first environmentalist”? Did you know that Noah was really a callous, dark person? Did you know that Noah was a drunken, axe-wielding murderer? Did you know that Noah threatened to kill his eldest son’s wife and her unborn daughter, because he didn’t want the earth to be repopulated? Did you know that Noah’s old pal Methuselah (really old pal) was a witch doctor who guided Noah spiritually? Did you know that Noah enlisted the help of Satan’s fallen angels to protect him while building the ark?

The Son of God movie:

THE SON OF GOD MOVIE

The Son of God film is similar to other religious films such as Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ. In both films, the producers dishonored Christ because He was not presented as He is in Scripture. The only true testimony of Christ is found in the infallible, inspired, and supremely authoritative Word of God and we need no other testimony. The Son of God film is a mockery of Christ and it was made by unbelievers who do not know Him. They portray a false christ, a christ of their own imaginations which is idolatry. They mock God by trifling with the true Christ and, in doing so, deceive and delude their audiences. It is a tragedy that Christians are praising this film as biblical and, at the same time, encouraging others to see it. They say it has a clear presentation of the Gospel. Yet, the “Jesus” in the film never mentions the justice of God or the penalty of sin, Nor is there any mention of the necessity of the new birth or repentance towards God and faith in Christ. The lack of discernment in the professing church is shocking!

A blogger at The Last Hiker has done some research and found a few unsettling facts about the beliefs of one of the producers of last year’s television event called “The Bible Series” and the new “Son of God” movie. Anyone assuming that Jesus Christ will be accurately portrayed in this new movie needs to consider that producer Roma Downey has been on television with psychic Jonathan Edwards talking to her deceased mother, partnered with him in a book he wrote, and listens to books on tape by new ager Eckart Tolle.

Read about it here:

The “Son of God” Movie Is NOT What We Think–Do You Know The Voice of Your Master
http://thelasthiker.wordpress.com/2014/02/23/the-son-of-god-movie-is-not-what-we-think-do-you-know-the-voice-of-your-master/

Even so, America’s favourite pastor Rick Warren has partnered with LifeWay Christian Resources to put together a “Son of God” movie Bible study[1] and is buying out entire theatres to show this film, saying, “I want every other faith leader in America to do the same. Whether you can buy out a whole theater, or just one screen, now is the time to show up.”[2] These other ‘faith leaders’ include T.D. Jakes, Joel Osteen, Pat Robertson, Bill Hybels, Leith Anderson, Erwin McManus, Paula White, Christine Caine, George Wood, Crai Groeshel and some Roman Catholic cardinals and archbishops.[3]

Be careful whose voice calls you to cross the faith bridge to see the new Son of God. They may be leading you to another Jesus.

Video: US Easter ad banned for mentioning Jesus

A US church’s advert telling people about an Easter service has been banned from cinemas and branded “too controversial” because it mentions the name of Jesus.

Compass Bible Church in California produced a short, mild cinema ad to invite people to its Easter event.

But the ad, which mentions the name of Jesus twice, has been banned from appearing on cinema screens by an advertising agency.

Twilight, Harry Potter, The Wizard of Oz and the Wiccan Revival

By: Pastor Joe Schimmel

“Wicca is one of the fastest-growing religions in the United States.” —MTV News

Is it true that media blockbusters like Twilight and Harry Potter are playing a decided role in seducing young people into Satanism and witchcraft? As we shall see, even MTV has acknowledged that such movies have played a surprising role in making Wicca [witchcraft] one of the fastest growing religions in America.

Twilight, a series of novels authored by Mormon, Stephenie Meyer, reveals that she may have had some help from at least one “terrifying” spirit guide. With the second novel ready to hit the silver screen, Twilight is now bigger than “Pottermania” and has successfully deceived millions of America’s youth. The fan base is made up of predominantly young girls, who have been drawn into the dark tale by a romance between a 108-year-old vampire (who appears much younger because he doesn’t show his years) named Edward, and a teenage girl named Bella. Beyond the apparent pedophilic problems that this “romance” poses, Twilight is riddled with unbiblical themes that glamorize and glorify the occult.
