I've had some weird experiences in my life, but they're just that experiences. I don't trust them as giving me absolute truth, divine truth, or perhaps any personal truth for that matter. I've had some things happen that are beyond explanation, but they don't serve as a witnessing tool or as divinely imparted knowledge.
If I'm going to tell a story, I'm going to tell Christ's story to an unbelieving world, not mine, no matter how uncanny and ear-tickling it may be. Do I take sola scriptura too far? Many probably would say I do. When it comes to the Scriptures and God's revelation, we need to defend absolute truth to our deaths. I see this kid's story as spiritual candy for itching ears. The Scriptures are concerned about the sin of mankind and Christ's work. If you want a certain example of what God and the afterlife are like, click here.
By the way, Mary seemed to be busy the day this kid was in heaven, as she didn't make it into this tale. Perhaps though, some unscrupulous Protestant edited her out.
