"Behold, I was shapen in iniquity: and in sin did my mother conceive me." - Psalms 51:5
There has of late been some discussion as to the destination of those who die in their infancy, before they are old enough to understand Jesus. Of course, the feel-good, tree-hugging, whale-loving liberals assert that God couldn't possibly send babies to hell as this would be "unfair" or "cruel", and that by some mysterious loophole in the rules for Salvation God allows those who are too young to be "accountable" into Heaven, no questions asked.
As usual, the position of the lieberals in this debate finds no support whatsoever in the Scriptures. The Bible is clear - EVERYONE who has not accepted Jesus as their Lord and Saviour by the time they die goes straight to the fiery bowels of hell, no exceptions and NO EXCUSES.
Relative to the argument that babies do not go to hell is the false belief that babies and infants are innocent, because they are not old enough to sin. This is utter nonsense. Central to the teachings of Christianity is the proposition that the guilt of Adam derived from the original sin is passed down through the blood through each generation (Genesis 5:3). Our ancestor was Adam - He rebelled against God. That's enough. Since the fall, we are guilty for even existing. You don't know much about Christian theology if you don't know that.
It is not a matter of choosing to rebel against God when we are old enough to drink and drive. If it was a choice entirely dependent on free will, then chances are some people would choose not to rebel. It would prOBably work out about 50/50. But the Bible says that the whole human race, every individual who has ever lived and ever will live deserves to go to hell (and that even includes you, my esteemed fellow true Christians). As the theologian John Calvin demonstrated, there is nothing whatsoever that we can do by our own free will to get saved. Nothing! The only way to get saved is to get Grace, and you can only get Grace if God decides to give it to you. The sign of having Grace is a compulsion within your heart to accept Jesus and a miraculous ability to believe in every word of the Bible (have you ever tried to FORCE yourself to believe in something? Hold a gun to someone's head and demand they believe that the earth is flat, or that unicorns exist. It is impossible - no matter how hard the person tries. Belief is NOT subject to will power).
We are ALL tainted with sin from the moment of conception (Psalms 24:4) and we need the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ to wash away our sins in the eyes of the Lord. So until the born again experience happens, Salvation is not possible. Therefore, babies and unborn babies who die go straight to hell.
You might think that this is "unfair", but it's not unfair at all. Those who do not have the opportunity to receive salvation, who never in their lifetimes hear the gospel preached (eg babies and savages living in jungles), OBviously were Predestined by God to go to hell. God makes sure that His elect are able to hear the gospel preached to them during their lifetimes, in order to give them an opportunity which He knows they will take advantage of. But with a lot of the reprOBate, He decided not to bother letting them hear the gospel because He had already decided to send them to Hell anyway. God knows everything, so if a baby dies, God OBviously allowed that baby to die because He knew that if it had lived it would have grown up to be a sinner.
A liberal so called "Christian" I once conversed with, recounted the Old Testament story of a father who was promised that he would be reunited with his dead son, who died in infancy. But the important point to remember here is that this occured in the OLD Testamant. Before Jesus, the requirements for Salvation were very different. OBviously Moses did not go to hell eventhough He never accepted Jesus as his Saviour - he could not have done, as Jesus had not been born at that stage. In Old Testament times, to belong to the Jewish race (God's chosen people) was sufficient qualification to ensure a place in Heaven, so long as you did not break the laws of the Prophets. But since the New Testament, it is imperative to believe in Jesus to get to Heaven.
Furthermore, one of my associates presented a very simple tongue-in-cheek argument that if death in infancy ensures salvation then it is a very good idea to kill babies. The vast majority of the human race at present is NOT made up of true Christians (Bible-believing fundamentalists), so for a new born, odds are that he or she will grow up to become part of the hellbound majority. Death in infancy, therefore, would guard against that risk, and would be a small price to pay to ensure eternal bliss as opposed to eternal misery and torture.
To suggest that God makes exceptions to the rule that you must believe in Jesus to get into heaven, based on age or any other reason is to make a mockery of the whole notion of Salvation. It is either necessary to believe in Jesus, or it isn't. If God is going to make exceptions then it OBviously isn't necessary. If God is going to allow unsaved babies to go to heaven by default then He is just playing games with us and Jesus isn't necessary at all. It would be better, in that case, to go and live in some remote community in some OBsure, primitive country and have a great time sinning all you like. At death, you will end up in heaven anyway if God can see that you have never been told about Jesus and the Bible.
Babies, and young children who die before they are old enough to understand the gospels and worship Jesus, unfortunately go straight to Hell. This is a Bible fact, and anybody who disagrees is guilty of heresy.
I trust that I have sucessfully refuted the heresies of the lieberal element that have been smearing the internet with their new-age, pluralist (aka satanic) lies.
On a final note, I would like to add that the thought of all those screaming infants in hell is enough to make you want to avoid the place at all costs, if you needed any more encouragement!

"Behold, I was shapen in iniquity: and in sin did my mother conceive me." - Psalms 51:5
This was written in collaboration with the Reverend Pastor JJ Hunter.
NO Mercy for the Disabled!
My Church does not have handicapped ramps!
My Church does not have handicapped parking spaces!
My Church does not provide hymnal books in braille!
My Church does not employ a person versed in "sign language"!
When asked why we do not make accommodations for such people, I sternly rebuke them with, "We do not cater to SINNERS, in the House of the Lord!"
This may come as a shock to many of you, as it is far from what we have come to coin, "politically correct". But the Lord never bothered being "P.C.", and neither shall I!
I am reminded of a time when I visited an Episcopalian church some time ago. The minister, as is custom, faces the altar with his blessings and then turns to the congregation stating, "May the Lord be with you", with the congregation replying, "And also with you". Well, on this occasion, the minister's microphone was not working properly and he turned around, patting the mike on his lapel saying, "There's something wrong with this thing.", and thus the people seated therein replied, "And also with you"!
While an amusing anecdote, it also teaches an important lesson. There WAS something wrong with this minister, and the way he conducted his church! While I was sitting in that church, I noticed up front there was a lady flashing what looked like gang symbols to the front few rows, with each person in turn flashing back symbols as if they were some sort of demented air traffic controller! It was very distracting to those of us wishing to sincerely praise the Lord. My host next to me explained their church offered service for the "hearing impaired" as if it were something to brag about. I was unimpressed.
Next, and most shocking, towards the end of the service when the minister offered communion to the servers, I noticed one of them was a little off-kilter... to say the least. Shorter than the rest of them, with sloped shoulders and a bowl haircut which barely was able to contain the large cowlick in the back of his head, he wore unfitted clothing which went out of style over a decade ago. Worse still, a large, silly grin beamed on his face from ear to ear below his upturned nose and his out of place eyes on his tiny little head.
It was clear this boy was a retard.
Well, I had just had it! Even if I had not already been planning on refusing to take bread and wine from this apostate church, I certainly would have avoided it upon seeing this drooling fool! Was this minister wrong? Goodness! He could only get more wrong by inviting a busload of rapists and drug pushers from the local prison into his church!
I stood up from my seat, addressing the minister so that all his congregation could hear his iniquities, and rebuked the SNOT out of him, so that all that was left of him was a stuttering schoolboy (and I do believe that young retard wet his pants) when I exposed this mockery for what it was!
When my good work was complete, I calmly walked out of that "church" and have not returned to one again! God Bless!
Where did this minister go wrong, you might ask? Well, as a Man from Jesus' Own, I shall enlighten you!
There can be no doubt the Lord does not want any sinners fouling up the pristine air where His true followers meet for fellowship and worship.
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness?
A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;
Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.
Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
What good could possibly come of inviting a sinner to church? Inviting unclean thought into the House of the Lord is only inviting trouble, as all the sinner can think about is having his way with the decent, pious, Christian ladies and how he can steal some money out of the collection plate!
What does this have to do with the disabled? EVERYTHING!
The term "disabled" or "handicapped" was invented by the no-good, lying members of the demoncrat party and the lieberal media! These terms were invented to sugar-coat this portion of our population and trick Christians into not seeing them for what they really are; and that is CURSED SINNERS!
Oh yes, they might look at you with sorrowful and cute doe eyes, and smile their donkey grins, but make no mistake about it: If these people had their full senses, you would be strung up and at their perverted mercy before two shakes of a stick! There is a reason for everything, folks! And there is an awfully good reason the Lord smited these heathens! They do not deserve our "coddling", they deserve our SCORN! Amen!
These people are guilty of horrible, horrible crimes and thus are forced to pay for their crimes (or their ancestor's crimes) while here on the earth, as well as in HELL!
It is not a "shame", a "tragedy" or "bad luck" they turn out this way... It is no accident, don't be fooled!
And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?
Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
Whether they were aware of it or not, these folks (or their parents and so on) greatly displeased the Lord, and thus, invited His glorious wrath down upon themselves and all their unfortunate ancestors!
And if a soul sin, and commit any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of the LORD; though he wist it not, yet is he guilty, and shall bear his iniquity.
Behind those glazed or unseeing eyes, folks, lies the souls of PURE evil! Evil often molded by SATAN himself! The blind, deaf and dumb (and DUMB) are Lucifer's own "wolves in sheep's clothing"! Who’s better to get us to lower our guard than some blind beggar asking for change, or some imbecile drooling on himself and bouncing into walls?
The Lord warns us of these people! To not heed His warning is to invite sin upon ourselves!
... Whosoever he be of thy seed in their generations that hath any blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his God.
For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous
Throughout the ages, the Lord has cursed sinners with horrible plagues, boils, halitosis, leprosy and other such maladies! Unless you want to be caught in His great net of vengeance, I suggest you STAY AWAY!
2 Kings 6:18
And when they came down to him, Elisha prayed unto the LORD, and said, Smite this people, I pray thee, with blindness. And he smote them with blindness according to the word of Elisha.
And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.
These "people" had their chance at redemption before the Lord a LONG time ago! It is not yours or my business to preach the Gospel to them, as they only seek to mock it!
These "people" belong in prisons and guarded hospitals where we are safe from them. I encourage all our Christian brethren to disregard the "tolerance" they have been taught when it comes to these demented souls. Disregard it when someone might say, "they are just like you, they're people with feelings, too". Well they're not "JUST LIKE YOU" or they'd be able to see, hear and talk like a normal human being, now wouldn't they? These people are clearly of the devil and there are no "ifs, ands or buts" about it!
God Bless and keep an eye out for these servants of perdition!
