No doubt why Jesus says that the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and few are the ones finding it. Since the dead have no conscious existence, hell cannot be a fiery place of torment where the wicked suffer after death. Personally I believe the little ones go to heaven because of the overwhelming grace of God. The story of David and his dying child gives tremendous consolation to parents who have lost infants to death, or to abortions, or lost young children. All the dashed hopes of future weddings, graduations, Christmas mornings, grandma and grandpa…all gone, forever. Do the damned become nonexistent in Hell? It's been a while since I read it and I don't remember the source, but it was something to the effect that, if a soul encounters Christ at the moment of death, that He inspires such awe and wonder that the soul could not help but embrace Him.
That certainly does not appear to be the case in this instance. Hell is for those who don't accept Jesus Christ as their personal saviour. You cannot even repent or believe unless God makes you. And what about those who are severely mentally handicapped or those with serious mental diseases or disorders? Precious little ones are the objects of His saving mercy and grace. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. The ones on the committee do speak for a broad swath of Baptists. Calvinists would view your classmate as never having been regenerate in the first place.
You make an excellent exposition in your comment alone that is worthy of publishing. Everyone who dies, dies because they are sinners by nature. Or has he provided a way for them to accept the gospel on the other side? Better a millstone be placed around the adults necks. For this reason, we hold a five-year-old to a higher standard of behavior than a three-year-old. Yet I spoke positively about his view on this subject. She trusted that God would forgive her because her intention, though warped by false theology, was for the good of her children. That his actions are in Scripture doesn't make it any less of a judgment.
No, they already know how to steal toys from other children. I speak it boldly; God hath commanded me. You might have heard that, because people have disobeyed God and done the wrong thing at least some of the time, people might also receive the same punishment as Satan. But I found your article to be very thought provoking and interesting. It was subsequently committed to writing in the Holy Scriptures. There is a divisive fight over Calvinism which is ongoing in the Southern Baptist Convention. As evidence, they note that when King David confessed his sins against Uriah, Bathsheba, and the nation, he famously observes that it is against the Lord only that he has sinned Psalm 51:4.
Those who are totally without sin. This is a self exclusion from the communion of God. John Did it mention that the baby was not baptized???? The fourth part is some speculation on my part why belief in active sin in infants could lead to child abuse. Do what is right and overcome gen4:7 fear God and obey and you will be accepted acts10:34-35 Thank you Mr. What about the Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists? And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. Again, this is not paradox, it is impossible.
The idea that baptism is connected to infant salvation makes me uncomfortable because it automatically excludes the unborn. They can not live without food, water, or even love and affection and can not enjoy eternal life without baptism. This is describing the same graph of the eighth, ninth, and tenth dimensions. Now this one I had to back into. So you are good here. They have to have full knowledge of what a mortal sin is. To do such is not difficult.
They each have their reasons why they believe this. Sing unto the Lord, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness. I remember thinking that I wanted no part of a deity that sent my father to Hell under those circumstances. The Bible actually teaches that we can be angry but we are also told not to sin in doing so. And then he ends with what he deems an illustrative video.
If you can find anything in the vast amount of material Tom has written please feature it. It is my opinion that things are not getting better, but slowly getting worse. The seventh dimensional definition was necessitated by a Cartesian coordinate graph where the X axis represents polarities separated and the Y axis represents polarities united and cancelled out. Infants are divided into elect and not elect. Once it hits the press, the cat is out of the bag and all parties should work to increase understanding. So also are all other elect persons who are incapable of being outwardly called by the ministry of the Word.
