Six years ago, a small but growing discernment blog broke the story that Alex Malarkey–also known as The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven—had recanted his story and said that he made it all up. The blog, Pulpit & Pen, was at the time run by Southern Baptists who were heavily involved in Southern Baptist life. The problem, though, was that even though the story had been recanted–and the entire fantastical tale was heretical and unbiblical anyway–Lifeway, an entity of the Southern Baptist Convention, continued to sell the book as though it were a true story.
Even after the story made national news and high profile pastors both within and out of the Southern Baptist Convention denounced the book and pleaded with Lifeway to stop carrying it, they continued to carry the book for several years.
Ultimately, they ended up dropping the book after much pressure from Southern Baptists. But the heresy they peddled didn’t stop there.
Today, at Lifeway, the vast majority of what you will find for sale is real and actual heresy. Most notably, one of the most heretical devotionals ever written is Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. Below is a gallery of the heresy you can still find at Lifeway:
