I was right in the middle of replying to a comment by Skandelon when the thread was closed. I ask for this one to stay on subject and refrain from the customary accusations and sabre rattling. I'm trying very hard to keep my posts and responses civil...don't be my stumbling block . The question posed was a good one and needs to be fleshed out more both scripturally and reasonably. This is a false dichotomy, Skan...and question begging People are in Heaven and hell due to guilt. Christ died that every stain and remnant of sin AND the curse be lifted. An infant is still a human and stained with sin as they are under the curse. Having never personally sinned does not mean they are in heaven apart from Christ. If anything you have the problem of an infant in heaven apart from faith and due solely to the atonement, which strips man of responsibility, an extra biblical special dispensation if salvation. Nobody is in heaven due to deserving it, the antithesis of grace.
