    Yeh. The Bible refutes both points #1 and #2.

    How is their salvation any different from an infant's?

    I only try to give you my opinion, as I said, I don't truly know, God knows better.

    I used to have many similar question, but God made me to understand that I need to trust Him! Now, I am free, no more questions, only faith and trust.

    I feel good, because according to me, fetus does not exist as a person.

    That's all right. Not everyone is going to agree on everything, come what may.

    My point was simply that you were posing a lot of questions about things about which God has not given us the answers in his holy word. So no one should worry over or even waste time pondering these things that do not pertain to our own lives.

    In addition, though, the Bible teaches that the fetus is a person and a creature of God, so if any of us chooses to believe otherwise, that might be a problem. It is worth considering, anyway.

    the OT concept of the afterlife is not this explicit, there is no hell or heaven, regardless of what your bible translates. David spoke of joining his son without mentioning the place saying "I will go to him, but he will not return to me.", Implicitly, however, this place is Sheol, which is an indiscriminate place of the dead where all pass through and the only concept of the afterlife in the OT.

    Sheol is an adobe of the dead however biblical speak it is not equivalent to the NT Hades. In Greek mythology, Hades is the place of the dead where all pass through but in the NT it is a term used for a place where people are judged where we can be saved from and it is contrast with heaven. Sheol, on the other hand, is a mysterious place and biblical speaking it is was largely unknown and reflected more of a position of ignorance than knowledge.

    A lot of things were unknowns then that are revealed now, The image of Sheol seems like a closed door that no one knows what's behind it but all must pass through upon death. What is behind it is the path of destruction and the path of life; a path that we choose during our life.

    Just saying scripture says you carry many traits of you ancestors having been part of them at one time.

    Actually, you're only a fraction of what your ancestors were. The polyploidy would kill you if you tried to be all that your ancestors were. ;)

    And that's because unborn, born and little ones and the mentally unable are all saved the same way as all who are cognizant of good and evil---By Grace!

    They are beloved children of God, who have never sinned and never rejected God's grace in their lives (unlike the rest of us). Therefore, yes, God certainly welcomes them home.

    Every conception is a living human and has a soul.. If it is aborted, it goes to heaven. Where else would it go? Do you think that God would deny it entrance to heaven?

    I do.
    God created them and saw them while they were growing in the womb. How can a baby/toddler sin against God when they don't know God?

    Your thread title mentions aborted babies: these are babies that are sinned against - why would they be condemned for it?

    PLEASE PLEASE think of those reading that do not post... you have NO CLUE about them.. and the REAL pain some of these post can cause.

    Hmm how would a judge and not just any judge hold someone accountable to a truth they never heard? How do you judge them? If your were BLIND you would have no sin. You say you see your sin remains. ... I agree with what Christ said.

    We need to watch our words. As He said.. we WILL answer for ever idol word "But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken". Who are you agreeing with? You are with them..

    Praise GOD glory to JESUS.. we have no say what so ever here. Our Father is life. Everything He does everything He speaks is life is alive. Two things come together.. life as the WORLD knows.. started. And MAN is going to say.. WHEN..it really started? Something is growing. It is life. Be very careful what side you stand on. For.. one does not have to do anything.. just to agree ..that sin.. like it or not believe or not.. will held to your/our account.
