Hi guys. I'm new here.
I've been reading through many topics here and there's some really interesting ideas. Though don't expect any intelligent discussion from me, I'm too stupid
Well, if we are all cursed by original sin, then babies would come under that.
I tried looking up some stuff in a Bible (I have like 4 around the house), and found some verses that hint at it. I can't believe anyone would follow God if he sent babies to Hell. That just doesn't make sense to me so I figured there must be something in the Bible against that.
And yeah I know, what the Bible says isn't exactly valid here, but at least it serves to show what Christians are following.
These are probably old news to you guys but I didn't see them posted. I see there are some pretty intelligent people here and you've probably already gone over this stuff.
I couldn't find much about babies, but there is a bit on children, which can be considered the same thing in the sense that both have no idea what's going on.
2 Samuel 12:22–23 And he said, "While the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept: for I said, Who can tell whether God will be gracious to me, that the child may live? But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but the shall not return to me." (I'm guessing David knew where his son was.)
Psalm 127:3 "Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward."
(God likes babies.)
Mark 10:15 "Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it."
Matthew 19:13-14 "Then little children were brought to Him that He might put His hands on them and pray, but the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, "Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven."
Both say the same thing basically, that children don't know what's going on and can't accept or deny Jesus aren't accountable. Just an idea, and it's all I could find at the moment.
Aaron123, what is that robot in your avatar? I know I've seen it before.
