A recent article on FoxNews, Is 2014 the year of the Christian film? said: “2014 has been dubbed by industry press as the year of biblical movies.”
Heaven is for real is based on the #1 New York Times best-selling book of the same title which is based on the real story of a 4 year old boy Colton who had a Near-Death experience. It details the little boy’s trip to heaven and back.
The true story, retold by his father but using Colton’s uniquely simple words, offers a glimpse of the world that awaits us and the chance to see, and believe, like a child.
I used to be fearful of death. Without faith and belief in life after death, death means the end of everything.
But now, I firmly believe in life after death. Life does not end when the body stops functioning. I am an eternal spiritual being living in a physical body. My spirit lives on even when my body is gone.
Life on this earth is only a temporary journey. My earthly life can end any day, any minute, any second. Some day I will be transformed from my earthly life to my spiritual life. I came from spirit and will return to spirit. I came from dust and will return to dust. I came with nothing and will leave with nothing. Everything I experience in this short life on earth is temporary.
I no longer view death as something so fearful, because death is just the beginning of a new life. I have hope for something better, a better life in heaven. There will be no sorrow, no pain and no tears in my eternal life in heaven.
