If A Baby Dies Will He/She Go To Heaven Or Hell? by Reelafonja(m): 10:08am On Jun 14
According to the Bible the yardstick for making heaven is giving your life to Christ. So if a young child dies at a young age and can't confess Jesus as Lord because he/ she can't talk or too young to comprehend.

Will he/she go to heaven.

NOBODY IS GOING TO HELL OR HEAVEN!
WAKE UP!


Anyway, where were you before your parents had sex?
That should answer the question.

At death, we simply stop existing!

, you just had to ask! Children or persons under the ages of 7 are known and seen to be innocent of the Decisions they make or likely to make because, it seen and known that they Do not understand nor know what they do.

Therefore no one relies or can rely on their decision neither does anyone very readily act on them.

Therefore children comit No Wrong because they do not understand nor know what they do, neither do they cause anyone to Act on what they say or do.

My Lawyers say that they are not Criminal Responsible neither can they ever be, because they know Not what They do.

But can Adult say that he does not know what he is doing? Never, if at all, he has only 1% probability. He is Guilty 100% of the time and it is from there that his guilt may drop, if it is capable of being dropped!

What is your definition of a young child?

A baby who neither knows right or wrong has no issues.

But in these days where kids are brought up anyhow and Exposed to everything by their parents, they have wat to speak against them..

There is no age limit for that!

There are 4yrs old kids that know More ..

GOD ALMIGHTY knows who is an innocent child and who is not!

That why the scripture says Train up your child in the way he should go! When he is old he will not depart from it!

Well it's not today Yaweh started killing babies.
Throwing them into eternal flame won't do no harm.
He loves the fresh smell of burnt Suya, so, why not throw the babies in? After all, they're all born as sinners.

I'm not surprised...
He even ordered children to be massacred.
What a good loving god.

I use to tell my friends that until you have fully understood Genesis 1-3, the Bible will always make you look stupid...
People should understand that it was God's breath that brought Adam to life, some translation use breadth some use spirit.. When God takes the breadth the body experiences death.. The body is usually buried where it returns to dust just as God has told Adam...

We are God's spirit dwelling within a body made of dust. We are the miracle we seek.

Earlier in the week, a Nigerian Magistrate decided to disqualify charges against a 15-year-old girl detained for killing a man who had attempted to rape her.




A just judge attends to every case according to its individual merits. If God is a just judge, He must deal with each person according to their individual merits.

When an infant dies, the destination of that infant is Heaven, instantly. Sin, age of accountability and predestination are usually the parameters many of us stumble when we try to provide an answer for this very important question. It is only the scriptures that can provide a comforting answer to the anguish many have felt concerning the final destiny of their dead babies.

Let us see the nature of the Judge:

1. God’s thoughts are precious (Psalm 139)

2. God knows everything about us in details before our conception (Psalm 139, Jer. 1).

3. God is a personal creator, He made each baby (Isaiah 46).

4 God regards children; in Ezekiel 16, the Lord describes how he picked up the Israelites as if they were an infant abandoned in the field; He uses Israel to show us that all infants are His children (Ezekiel 16:20) - He loves all of them (Luke 18:16). He rebuked Jonah for praying for the damnation of those could not discern their left hand from the right: little children and those mentally incapable of making right judgements.

You may ask when does a child stop being a child, and become accountable? When you consider the nature of everyone, the question should not be about “age of accountability” but the “condition of the individual”; a 30 years old person with down syndrome is “mentally a child”.

All children are unique in their development and exposure to the truth; so, a righteous judge has to consider these conditions. There is nowhere in the Bible where there is a stipulated “age of accountability”; so you have to take your eyes off the calendar. Only God knows the age of accountability.

Any child who hasn’t reached the point of moral culpability, to convincingly understand the difference between sin and salvation, will proceed to Heaven when such a child passes away.

I don't blame you, as you lack comprehension abilities... Death simply means the spirit returning to God and the body back to the earth..

Why would God send his spirit to hell or his breadth?.. What is the wisdom in it?

Hell fire was created by the Romans just like Jesus..

This is actually are really good way of looking at it.
Personally I think as long as we can comfortably use the word "child" for an individual, then they are not yet morally culpable. But really I don't know

It is written in Ezekiel 33: “the Sovereign LORD, am the living God, I do not enjoy seeing sinners die”.

In the scriptures, the term “sinner” or “wicked” is used to describe a hardened offender, a habitual criminal, a regular felon, those whose actions or inactions resist the course of nature etc.- No child falls into these descriptions because their innocence restrains them. Then if God does not enjoy seeing sinners condemned, how much more would He not enjoy the condemnation of the innocent?

I hear Abraham say to God: “ You could not possibly do such a thing: to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike. You could not possibly do that! Won't the Judge of the whole earth do what is just?"

All dead babies and children will go to Heaven instantly when they die.
