Question? Are there any verse that say that children go to heaven if they die as an infant or very young?
Answer: YES, there is
When a infant or a young child dies (although very tragic) BEFORE the age of accountability (the understanding of knowing Right from Wrong) which is at a different age for every child, God DOES NOT hold them accountable as a sinner.
(Romans 5:13) (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
Please FOCUS on the second half of Verse 13 “sin is not imputed when there is no law”
What Verse 13 is saying when there is NO KNOWLEDGE of sin then you are not held accountable.
As in the case of Infants and Very Young Children who die before the age of accountability I believe that this portion of Verse 13 can be applied when in comparison with the very words from the Lord Jesus Christ in Mark 10:14. “For of such is the kingdom of God”.
(Mark 10:14) But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
I believe it would be very cruel to even hint a little that God would not allow a infant or young child to into heaven upon death, but one has to wonder of those churches that practice infant baptism (which IS NOT support nor mentioned in the bible) that impress upon their congregation that they need to get their infant baptized shortly after birth if you were to ask those ministers of those churches if they believed that child would go to hell IF NOT BAPTIZED, it would be interesting if those ministers would be honest enough to tell you that.
My Question is Why would a religious organization practice something if it didn’t matter ESPECIALLY if it is NOT FOUND, supported or mentioned in the Word of God???
My personal belief is that there is and will be more people in heaven that have died as infants (due to abortions) then those who have reach adult age and have personally TRUSTED in Jesus Christ ALONE as their SOLE MEANS of salvation and payment for ALL their sins.
The PROOF is in the numbers.
The current count of total abortions performed as of the writing of this article dated 4/23/2017 since Roe VS Wade in 1973:
United States = 60 Million
World Wide = 1.6 Billion
I believe we have as a nation ALONE have brought the condemnation of God UPON US.
(Luke 17:2) It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins. the MOMENT you believe(TRUST in Christ ALONE) you receive eternal life.
-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
IT IS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
