Is this what Jesus looks like?
Now, I realize that their are a lot of hoaxes that go around every day. And let's face it, there are many who just don't believe in God, Jesus, heaven and hell or anything else that smacks of spirituality. Colton or Akiane do not need me to pass judgment on whether or not they are being truthful or if they are hallucinating or anything else. But, I am a believer in Jesus Christ. I am a believer in heaven. I don't know what heaven looks like or what Jesus looks like but maybe Colton and Akiane do. I see no reason to dismiss that possibility out of hand.
Is it possible that many will dis-believe the whole Heaven Is For Real story simply because to accept it open's up a can of worms that they don't want to deal with. After all, if I believe that Colton was actually taken to heaven and returned and that he talked to Jesus directly, then I have to seriously consider committing myself to be a follower (disciple) of Jesus. And if I do that, it may force a drastic overhaul of my belief system.
For me, I will choose to believe that God can certainly choose to reveal things to certain people at certain times for His purposes. I have no basis for simply saying it is impossible just because it doesn't have a rational explanation. And next time I am anywhere near Imperial, Nebraska, I would love to stop by Crossroads Wesleyan Church and meet this remarkable family.
