Do children go to heaven

    if all children go to heaven my question is, why not kill all the children in the world that way everyone of them will have a 100% chance to go to heaven? Wouldn’t it be immoral to allow a child to grow and maybe no go to heaven? Wouldn’t it be moral for you to slay children and guarantee that they will live forever in heaven?

      Your post is moot. It makes no sense more than religion itself.

        Christianity doesn’t make sense that was my point.

      There are specific instructions NOT to kill.
      The act, whatever the afterlife consequences for those being slain, is therefore an immoral one.

        The law thou shalt not kill was not shared by the law bringer. Besides the benefits of your children living forever in heaven, surely out way the sin of murder. Which BTW can be forgiven.

          Not sure what religious text you are reading from, but the faith that I follow does indeed state thou shall not kill.

          Similarly, it's not up to me to rationalize the morality of a forbidden act through its perceived 'benefits'...

          and whether an immoral act can be forgiven, does not make it any less immoral.

            What is moral? Allowing your child to live on earth through suffering and maybe love, but with only a shallow chance of going to Heaven (Christian Belief system) or sparing them the torment and sending them straight to Heaven for all eternity?

              Moral is following the commandments and the instruction of God.

                What is your definition of God? How does this God give you morals? My morals were developed through nurture and my own personal opinions.

                "thou shallt not kill"

                Christianity? The bible?

                Doesnt that same book tell you to kill those who try to lead you away from god? Doesnt that same book tell you to kill witches?

                I think you need a new religion. You obviously dont know anything about this one.

                Try reading the book before you decide to believe it is true. Otherwise you just look like an idiot.

      It's not our place to determine a persons time on earth.

      We aren't to take another's life. Quote all those scriptures from the OT if you guys want, but that was for that day and age. Christ came to set the record straight about how it was 'suppose' to be from the beginning.

      No you shouldn't kill children.

      My goodness...

        Sorry you are wrong here. All the OT laws still stand. Jesus only came to abolish the sacrificial laws. No law will be up lifted until heaven and earth are destroyed.

        Wow. Thats some imagination you have. How may I ask do you picture life 2000 years ago?

        You think there is ANY circumstances when those acts are good moral behaviour?

        You'll go to any length to defend your ridiculous book wont you?

    "Wouldn’t it be immoral to allow a child to grow and maybe no go to heaven?" The logic would indicate yes it would be immoral.

    Unfortunately what meant to be a joke (somewhat cruel one) is an awful truth. In some religious sects they practise that - to kill everybody (mass suicide)including children to go to heaven at once. Do not want to go into details - too bizarre and depressing.

    "but the faith that I follow does indeed state thou shall not kill.". Belief the reference was to 'God the law bringer' or so it was my impression.

      Paradox for you! So all the children and unborn children that God slaughtered in Genesis are in hell? Unborn children  cannot except Jesus as a savior.

            m not ok with any one going to hell just because he/she doesnot believe in some god or book or prophet or any...infact according to me biggest hell is living in fear of hell or greed of heaven...one must live life according to one's conscience and forget about god ...who cares what some one up there thinks ... i care more about fellow human beings than caring about some one who existence itself is not proven...

    Isn't science fiction, myth and superstition fun to argue about.

    If you read between the lines in "Fadedsnow's" comments and understand the points he's trying to make, he is making sense if one believes in scriptural "garble,"

    Of course, in reality, it's all silly and a waste of time to consider except as childish entertainment.

      I personally dont understand how anyone in todays day and age (from a civilised, developed country) can beleive in any religion without evidence.

      Of course it is perfectly understandable that third world countries will be more religious because education is not as good and widespread, but in america and the uk?

      I honestly dont understand it. I also dont believe the statistics given that atheists in the uk make up only 15% of the population and even less in america.

      When looking at religious videos on youtube, if you check the thumb up and thumb down rating, pro atheist thumbs seem to outnumber pro theist thumbs 2 to 1 and since most of those are from americans, I think that says a lot about what the numbers are more likely to be.

      What do you think?

        The majority of we Americans are still "primitives."

        We pass on our religious idiocy to our children and they to theirs.

        All mnonotheists are guilty of the same illogical, deadly practices.

        I've written many hubs about this subject.

        It will not change in our or our childrens lives.
