Miracles from Heaven
I can't stand Jennifer Garner. Never have liked her, never will. Now she's starring in this horrid movie, Miracles from Heaven. The interview she gave People magazine was just nauseating.

article

I literally felt bile in my throat when I read the line about whether the little girl was telling the truth or not about going to heaven. The delusions of grandeur really scare me. These movies are starting to pile up and I just can't believe they make money.

Garner, you see miracles in everything? I guess it was a miracle when Ben nailed the nanny. Let me guess, that was god's plan for you.

Saw a preview for it recently. Wasn't impressed.

One of my deeply religious Facebook friends says that all the heaven is really real type movies (can't recall the term she used) are completely wrong and unbiblical. Just remembered the term was called heaven tourism.

I was a bit surprised.

RE: Miracles from Heaven
There are all kinds of things sending up BS flags. First of all she had no major injuries when she fell into this hollowed out tree. She was released from the hospital the next day, she didn't die, she just lost consciousness! Facepalm

They said she had improvement of her condition Intestinal Motility Disorder.

There is no cure for this, but it isn't a terminal disease, a physical shock to the body, like falling into the middle of a tree and being stuck upside down for hours might have unpredictable side effects.

Like Momsurroundedbyboys pointed out, it's another example of heaven tourism, which is pretty much a cottage industry of fraud perpetrated by the parents.

Yep, it was in the story that she takes the kids to church. I'm glad Batman Ben cheated on her pompous ass.

Clearly she didn't understand the subtext of one of her own movies...

This movie looks so God awful, pun intended. I just can't believe how dumb Christians are that still use miracle stories as any kind of proof of their God. Why would he pretty much ignore every single person in this world and allow countless children to be abused, raped, killed, etc. and but this one little girl is just so special, he had to intervene and cure her stomach disorder? Ummm, ok? And this is a good thing? Why not also believe every ghost story? Alien abduction story? Any other "faith" healing? That last part of the trailer where Garner says to her daughter "Who said you'd be ok?" and the daughter just gives a little smile, like "Well Jesus of course! He has a thing for little blonde girls!" It's just so creepy and smug.
