Dead Babies

12 Aug

If it is true that all human beings are born as sinners, what about babies who die? The baby would not have had the opportunity to accept Jesus as his/her personal savior and ask forgiveness for his/her “sins”, therefore the dead baby would go to hell with absolutely no choice in the matter or ability to avoid it. Thousands of babies die every day across the world. Way to go god.

    You take an interesting position on this topic. Where do you get the notion that God bans babies to hell?

    Jesus stopped His disciples, who wanted to restrict access to Him by children, saying, “For of such is the kingdom of heaven.”

    When babies die before, at or after birth, no adult has had a chance to stop them from access to Jesus and His Father (God) so nothing or no one obstructs them from going directly to new life with them.

    Sounds good to me. How about you?

    I do believe that according to the Christian dogma you refer to, those babies’ souls go to limbo as they indeed had no chance to be saved through no fault of their own.

    Also, it sort of depends of the God you refer to. The God you don’t believe in? I don’t believe in him either. But I do believe in God.

    Just sayin’. 😀

    See, this is the really difficult thing when making an argument. Some christians might believe XY&Z, but others might not believe in X. So when you make an argument about X, some christians will get on and say “That’s a false notion”, while others will say it’s not. 😦

    Just as a suggestion: maybe try sourcing more of the stuff you’re arguing for/against? That way if you are arguing about X, those who believe Y&Z can go, “ah-I see where you’re getting this. I disagree with this/don’t believe in this, and I find X to be ___ “
