there's an age of understanding that I don't know, but the bible talks about it briefly. I think it's when they're old enough to start understanding and asking questions on their own that they become accountable. But kids being younger, no, He wouldn't send them to hell. At least from my understanding of him, he wouldn't.
As for people who commit suicide, no.
The people who go to hell are those who hold onto sin and dont want a relationship with God. If someone doesn't want to know God now, why would they after dying? They want separation, so they get it.0
Well, the Bible says that the human heart is corrupted from the youth on, meaning from the time of puberty on, not from the time of birth on. Also Jesus Christ said that one should let the children come to God because theirs is the empire of God.
However, you should keep in mind that suicide is murder. And in Biblical terms it is barely ever happening that a Biblical character commits suicide, not even Job, because it's better to be alive than dead according to the way the people in the Biblical times have thought. I personally doubt that God will send kids to hell though.0
Do they know the difference between right and wrong? Have they been taught of Jesus and how if you ask him for forgiveness then yes.. as we are born sinners because eve at a piece of fruit , we're born on the highway to hell , it's up to us to personally get ourselves onto stairway to heaven... I don't know of any exceptions.. obviously purgatory and limbo and stuff were created with no inspiration from the Bible, but they're good for reassurance to parents of infant death or the mother of a scoundrel who got killed in a drug deal0
What Girls & Guys Said
If someone has accepted Jesus as the substitutionary atonement for their sins, they will have eternal life with God.
In essence, the person and NOT God, decides where that person will go after their earthly life.
Everyone is born into sin. There is no escaping that for humans. But, what baby can know that they are in a sinful state and that they are separated from God BY their sins? How can they know the fact that they must place their faith and trust in Jesus Christ, who alone can save them?
The Bible does not specify what the age of accountability is in numbers, but that age is the age at which a person can clearly understand that they are a sinner in need of Jesus Christ, their Savior.0
I'm not sure about the whole suicide thing. But i would guess if a child committed a crime like murder then they might get sent to hell. Since that is a very bad crime to commit and usually it is not forgiven. But suicide on the other hand, is quite different. So maybe that could be forgiven more than murder. However, it really is not a good thing to do to yourself.0
It probably depends on which christian denomination you're talking to. If you ask a Catholic, nowadays they would tell you that if it's a kid, they probably are not going to Hell. And even if it's an adult, they might not go to Hell. It really depends on the person's culpability for the suicide, depending on what kinds of psychological phenomena they were experiencing10
No, God does not send kids to hell. Neither does He send anybody else there at all. According to the Bible, there is no such place (Ecclesiastes 9:5,10). The very idea is foreign to God (Jeremiah 7:31). A dead person is silent (Psalm 115:17), as he lies buried in his grave. He is sleeping in peace. Only God can wake him up from his sleep.10
You read wrong.
A child is innocent. If it kills itself (kids are stupid, don't forget) then it would probably be due to parents negligence, rather than it's intent10
The unforgivable sin is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, which in the context would seem to mean the continual hardening of a heart that attributes the direct works of God to Satan. I am reticent to call anything else unforgivable. As a pastor once told me, "No one but God knows how the Father chooses to apply the blood of the Son in the twinkling of an eye between life and death."0
I'm not Christian, but I do believe in the existence of God. And I'll say that God is certainly not so cruel and petty as to punish children. And God is also not so cruel and petty as to punish a suicide by eternal damnation.0
it is not true, god decides your location but that all depends on your connection with god not what you do on earth, now dont get me wrong, living a life of sin can send you to hell too but thats already something else10
I mean If your God is stupid enough to create a hell instead of a rehabilitation center then yeah fuck the kids according to your god. Now dont take that last sentence to seriously Catholics priest0
Not only that, but any unbaptized child also goes straight to hell if they die prematurely because humans are born with sin and must apologize to God for the crime of existing against their will.0
i never got why suicide is considered a deadly sin by the bible, also according to the bible if a child isn't baptized they are to spend the rest of eternity in limbo3
Hell isn't real, no one goes there.0
No. They can't make informed decisions0
These are just made up stories.0
Killing yourself is a sin regardless of age so yes0
hell and heaven don't exist0
Suicide is a sin, but it’s not just like: oops, you sinned, you’re definitely going to hell now. Wearing men’s clothes is a sin for women and I used to wear my dad’s shirts as pajamas. No one thinks I’m just boom damned to hell no matter what now. Grace, forgiveness, and second chances are all central to Christianity and one mistake out of every action you take isn’t gonna damn you. If that kid tortured squirrels and tried to kill his younger sister and mysteriously the neighbor’s dog showed up dead in his yard and he worshipped Satan and killed himself as a sacrifice to Satan then yeah, I might guess he was heading to hell. Even then, I don’t presume to know everything and God might think there’s mitigating circumstances I don’t know. But a normal good kid who loves God and killed himself... I don’t know. God would decide based on the whole of who they were what was necessary. But I personally don’t believe that a single sin alone determines your fate.
