Thinking Cap #5 - The Question: Does a Slain Child go Straight to Heaven?
One of the very few consoling facts of the tragedy of abortion is that we believe the
slain infants will go straight to heaven. Most also believe that very small children and
even those who are older, but severely mentally handicapped will go to heaven when they
die. There is considered to be a concept called the "age of accountability,"
such that a child under that age will go to heaven when he dies. A child or adult older
than that age would go to heaven only if they had placed their faith and trust in what
Jesus Christ did for them on the cross and had repented of their sins.
Is there any Biblical support to this belief, or is it just wishful thinking? Your
responses are due by midnight, February 8, 1995 (you get extra time on this one because I
will be at a preaching conference in Jacksonville, FL over the weekend, so take advantage
of the "thinking time.")
Here, for what it is worth is how I would approach this topic.
