A boy's story of heaven

Jun 5, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: La Vista Sun

One day in late May, Colton Burpo, the small-town Nebraska boy who says he visited heaven and sat on Jesus' lap, strode into his family's house after walking home from his last day of sixth grade.

What is so strange about having been in Heaven?
People should not acquite heaven with being an out of this world experience but being a situation where you feel great.
You might have a nagging wife and visit a friend who let you have peace and tranquility and then this might be Heaven for you.
Those who are religious with the Bible will tell you that you can go either to Heaven or Hell and when judgment day comes then you will be directed to either Heaven or Hell. Well what is the "waiting room" called, in which everyone is waiting for judgment day to come?
Then again when someone died they say the person went to Heaven. So, what happened with judgment day if you can immediately go to heaven anyhow?
.
As such just accept Heaven to be wherever you feel comfortable, and yes this even can be with your nagging wife or your boring husband, as once you lose them you may just wish you had them back.

What a coincidence that Heaven is just like what his father, the evangelical pastor, preaches about it. Unfortunate that the boy can't remember his vision, lucky dad remembered all the details.

Heaven is a place where you can use ancient archaic Anglo words which used to mean "to repay or discharge a debt", and nobody calls you on it.

But you all knew what that word meant, didn't you.

Didn't you?

He meant "EQUATE".

Does thou doubt heavens virtues? Lest thee be erroneous in thy view shalt thou ponder thy transgressions and be meritorious in thy response to the Hoi polloi.

How much is 'real' and how much is imagination?

The kid is the son of a preacher indoctrinated into religion from birth, of course he's going to have ideas of "heaven" and clutch at those 'ideas' in times of stress.

The true meaning of charity and giving = the kid and parents relating the story for FREE, to help the people in need of that type of therapy crutch.

My idea of "heaven" is not to be preached at by the god bothers and cultists who's non-logical, non-sensicle - and to them 'non' fictional - stories bore me to tears.

Thou dost hear thine sweet voice like honey dripping from the uppermost treetops like a nightingale singing the praise of the lord most high.

For thine voice echo through the woodlands attracting all manner of god's creations drawn to soft mellow pitch.

But even Chaucer in his witty tales could not conjure a voice from the most talented bard choice picked by the greatest monarch, king of kings, his majesty the Lord.

The catholic priest who was the principal of my school made me sit on his lap when I was a 10 year old. Now this boy says he sat on Jesus' lap. What is this with religious leaders?

I agree with Gerrit Schorel-Hlavka because people believe in what they want to believe in. You keep your opinion to yourself if unfavorable, if favoured then you let it out. But people who are religious will stick to the word of the Lord an that can't be changed. I feel great for this kid to because he has expirienced something great at a youn age, most people don't get to expirence something like this untill they are on their death bed. :)

I disagree, the kid has a right to believe in what he choses to believe in.
