Okay, folks, having to create a new thread because the last one was too similar, the same one in fact that is being ran in Baptist Theology. The question is the center of many a debate, so, despite what System of Theology one has embraced, or lack thereof, I think its a good topic which might allow us to look at the issues involved. So what happens to the infant that dies in the womb? Or even the young child? Or the mentally impaired? A few things I would like to point out is that all men are conceived and born in a condition of separation from God (and if any want to address that issue, it is relevant). The normal manner of salvation is that men receive the revelation of God and respond to it (and this is another issue that is also relevant). We know that in this Age when men respond positively to the Gospel of Christ, they are born again and eternally indwelt (and whether this took place before this Age is also relevant). Those are just a few points of discussion in this issue. God bless.
