Children's Souls


#1

I have always wondered this and a friend and I some how started talking about this. Do children go to heaven even if they have no relationship with Jesus? I know that if a baby dies the Bible says that God takes care of the children. I’m talking about this: What if there is a kid that is 12 or 14. His parents have never mentioned God or church to him. So he honestly has no idea about religion or about a relationship with God. Would he go to heaven of he died? I know its kind of…well its not kind of…it is a odd question…but I really want to be able to answer her. I don’t want to have to try to make up an answer for her.

We have to ultimately depend on God’s mercy. All of us. But I would have to think that a 12 or 14 year old child that, through no fault of their own, does not know Jesus would have a much better chance of getting into heaven than many of us sinners who claim to know and love Him.
