Colton Burpo almost died when he was four years old from a burst appendix. His parents admit they should have gotten a second opinion on the kid’s condition and sought treatment for him more quickly when he didn’t recover from his “flu.” Instead of dying, Colton got to spend a little time with Jesus in Heaven. That’s a sweet deal. His dad wrote a best-selling book about Colton’s encounter called Heaven is For Real. I didn’t find anything in Colton’s account that contradicts the Bible whatsoever.
