Do you believe Colton Burpo went to Heaven and back? Why or why not?

I am looking for a solid claim for my report. I have to have an apposing argument to the book 'Heaven is for Real'. Thanks :)

I think that children have a special place in the heart of God!
People dont always believe adults when they say they have witnessed glimpses of heaven..... But we believe children. They have no reason to lie in instances like this.
It is very likely God uses children to convince adults that Heaven Is real!

I think it is completely possible IF you are a Christian.

If you get an opposing argument .. It is just a guess no one knows except Colton.

It is important to note that of course God COULD give a person a vision of heaven or hell.
If God were to truly give a person a vision of heaven or hell, one thing we can know for sure is that it would be in 100% agreement with His Word.

Well being that Paul couldn't even speak of what he saw (2 Cor. 12:2) I would say that it isn't possible. Plus the rich man could not return from his place of torment once he was there (Luke 16)

It could be that Paul didn't have the right words to use when he stated that. Many people say the same thing who have been there.
With the rich man, he had died and did not come back to life to be able to explain. With Colton, he actually never died but was taken by his spirit. (so it seems) And, many people die, go to heaven, (or hell) but happen to come back to life. The rich man didn't.

I hate to assume. As the Bible tell us once we die then judgement.

Right, but, many, many people have died and they see angels and jesus and dead relatives. And then told, "its not your time yet...u must go back." some r taken .com in the spirit, as paul ,and colten , or given a vision. Laseruz was raised from the dead and many people today, r, too. (when they die and come back with no side effects of having a lack of oxygen for a length of period) :) when, its time..then its time. :)

I think how we see death and how we perceive it, is different how God labels it. Is it possible that one vitals get so low that today technology can't detect anything, and they are pronounced dead by our standard. The reason I say that, is I read a book on a lady in England who woke up I the morgue 7 times in her life due to a condition to where her vitals would go so low they could not be detected and doctors pronounced her dead only to find she was not dead.

Well...thats her story. There r many other stories where people do actually die. Drowning and being underwater for 30 min. All it takes is 7 min for lack of oxygen to have death. When a person comes back with zero side effects after that long.....its amiracle.

What do u mean opposing argument? You have to write a paper on why it possibly happen? Just curios.

i am just making a poster for a counter argument against a book of my choosing and i chose Heaven is for Real so i had to find an argument that said that they thought Colton didn't go to Heaven and back, and why they thought that way.
