Teen Admits Heaven Book Was A Lie - So, What Is The Truth About Heaven?

There has been much publicity this past week about how there was a retraction about a book entitled The Boy Who Went To Heaven.  Actually, there had been previous attempts to correct the record, but the publisher and "Christian" bookstores were too busy making money on it to pay heed it would seem.  Now some are finally taking action when it is too late to undo the harm that has already been done.  It is to their shame, but please remember that Jesus is not the liar.  God is always true & hates lying.

Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, But those who deal faithfully are His delight. 
Proverbs 12:22 NASB

Here are some posts that shine some light on what went on behind the scenes:

Here is John MacArthur's response to a question about another Heaven tourism book about another little boy:

So what will Heaven be like?  While there are those who will lie to you, this does not mean that Heaven is not real or that Hell is not real.  The Bible is where we find the most accurate information, although there are books that are helpful that take the Scripture and put it before you.  Sadly, many people can be taken in because they are naturally curious or like sensational stories.

So, what is the Gospel... what is the Good News?
