I am applauding the decision of LifeWay………

LifeWay Removes Unbiblical Resources From Their Stores

Alex Malarkey’s book “The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven: A Remarkable Account of Miracles, Angels, and Life Beyond This World” has been a top seller for a very long time. Just a few months ago Alex confessed that the whole story was a lie that he fabricated to get attention. He says,”I did not die. I did not go to Heaven,” he wrote. “When I made the claims that I did, I had never read the Bible. People have profited from lies, and continue to. They should read the Bible, which is enough.” This led to LifeWay making the decision to pull the book from all of their stores and website. Now LifeWay has just compiled a list of authors and resources that will be banned from their stores from this point on. LifeWay sent out a company email to all employees in regards to their decision and an acquaintance of mine who works for LifeWay sent me the list of banned resources/authors. I want to applaud LifeWay for this decision which will encourage Christians to be more discerning about what they read and share with others. It blows my mind how Christians will believe something just because its in a book or in a movie without diligently searching the Scriptures to be sure their receiving biblical truth and not mystical and unbiblical nonsense. LifeWay still has a long way to go because though their list is exhaustive it still is missing other authors who are harming the church with unbiblical doctrines.

The one question I have is why would LifeWay carry these resources in the first place? Its ironic that once Alex confessed to fabricating the story that now LifeWay decides to pull the book. This reminds me of the incident at World Vision when they decided to accept homosexual missionaries. After receiving instant criticism they decided to retract their decision. Obviously the answer involves the financial profit received from popular yet uahonbiblical resources. If you want to read the list of banned resources you can do so here:Lifeway Removed Authors
