If baptism is needed to enter Heaven, what happens to children killed to young to have been baptized

Sequoia:

All babies go to heaven even if they did not have a chance to be baptized!

Thomas:

Very true!!!!!!!!!!

ElegantSwan:

I would believe that to be true in the way I believe in my God. The problem I have is that no one has ever been able to really explain this as they always get tangled up on their words or cannot find the verses in the Bible.

Sequoia:

I just know that a baby can not knowingly sin but is baptized to wash away the Original sin!
Thank you Doreen!

Backinthesack:

I wish that were true. However, children born to believing parents are sanctified, through the belief of the parents, until they reach the age of accountability. That means they are considered holy because of the parents belief in Christ. Children born to unbelieving parents are left without sanctification and, according to scripture, are unclean. (1Cor 7:14) Scripture is very clear that we are all born into sin and must be "born again in Christ" in order to receive salvation. How will God deal with babies who die before they reach the age of accountability? I can't say for sure, but I think scripture is pretty clear.

The Oracle:

Not a problem. God is omniscient....everything is taken into account....I'm sure He makes adjustments for these kinds of things....just like every aborted baby will yet live....

ElegantSwan:

I feel that way too, but it is something that I have never heard explained very well.

Thomas:

Now wouldn't hat be amazing The Oracle. How is your mom doing? ♥

The Oracle:

@bullshipper.....lemme' look into it & get back....look here for it
@Doreen, Good..better..thank you so much.

Akk:

In countries in South America, like Costa Rica, since some people live in rural areas, it is hard for priests to get to a village and baptize a child, so they attempt to schedule childbirth around the usual visiting time of the priest, since the people are afraid the children will be trapped in limbo for all eternity.

ElegantSwan:

That is very interesting as I did not know that, thanks..

Akk:

Any time

Backinthesack:

If the act of baptism was the only thing necessary for salvation, why did Christ have to go to the cross? The act of baptism is only one part of the process of being reborn in Christ. One must believe, repent, and be baptized. Little children are considered holy only if the parents are believers. Read 1Cor7:14 and see what you think.

Eddie:

In the 18th century all Christendom taught that they would not be saved. In the early 19th century, one church taught they would be saved anyway. It did not take long for the other churches to change or at least soften their stance on the subject.
I could not love or follow a god who would be so arbitrary in sending people to hell. (the truth is, I sometimes have trouble following a loving god who wants his children to return with honor. I do have my setbacks, but I am trying.)
His ways are righteousness. His judgments are merciful. That is the kind of God you can trust and love and follow.

2 Cents:

Almost 100 years ago, my grandma lived in a very remote place, and once in a while there was a traveling preacher would come to the area, and there would be a meeting, and my grandma had her kids baptized every time she had a chance to. It didn't matter what religion, but it sure matter they were baptized. One of my uncles said he was baptized at least 5 times.

But babies who haven't been baptized still get to go to heaven, which was the question. They are special, as well as babies who were stillborn. If you read most Christian Baptism ceremonies are actually a promise made by adults to see to the child's religious training.

Backinthesack:

Baptizing is a very important part of the process of rebirth in Christ. However, the act of baptism, in and of itself, cannot cause a person to be saved. If it could there would have been no reason for christ to go to the cross.

2 Cents:

Ahh, you are right Frick. I forgot that most important part of the whole idea of baptism. So sorry about it too. But like you said, a baby cannot grasp the idea of being in Christ, it has to learn, thus the adults are responsible for it to learn.

Angelo:

I don't remember reading that baptism was a requirement for salvation. When was the thief on the cross next to Jesus baptized? Jesus told the thief that he would be in heaven with him (guess that blows the JWs out of the water with their 144K theory) Baptism is an outward sign of an inward faith - how is it that a baby could profess a faith and belief in Jesus? Matthew 12:31 indicates that there is one sin that will not be forgiven.
