Where in the bible does it say that you will go to hell if you deny God? (give me verses)
Where does it say you will go to heaven if you follow God?
And..If someone born in Asia grew up there and never heard about Jesus, then died at a young age (say..20), would they go to hell?
Also, what happens if a baby is to past away, what happens to their soul?
Welcome & God Bless you in your search for the Truth, which is Jesus Christ, our Lord & Savior!
"On that day many will say to me, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?' 23 And then will I declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from me, you evildoers.' " (MT 7:22-23)
HELL IS THE ABSENCE OF GOD!
From the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC);
This affirmation is not aimed at those who, through no fault of their own, do not know Christ and his Church:
Those who, through no fault of their own, do not know the Gospel of Christ or his Church, but who nevertheless seek God with a sincere heart, and, moved by grace, try in their actions to do his will as they know it through the dictates of their conscience - those too may achieve eternal salvation. (CCC 847)
As regards children who have died without Baptism, the Church can only entrust them to the mercy of God, as she does in her funeral rites for them. Indeed, the great mercy of God who desires that all men should be saved, and Jesus' tenderness toward children which caused him to say: "Let the children come to me, do not hinder them," allow us to hope that there is a way of salvation for children who have died without Baptism. All the more urgent is the Church's call not to prevent little children coming to Christ through the gift of holy Baptism.(CCC 1261).
