I hope and pray they won't...NOTW
Some say yes and some say no. Scriptures can be found to support both sides. The only fact that is important though is, God is a just God and NO ONE will be eternally seperated from His love and presence unless they choose to be by rejection of His Son. When children are shown true love, they always respond positively. I am convince that all children will go to heaven whether it be before or after the final 7 years of tribulation.
There is no reason for us to be concerned or worried about the matter...God is in full control of the outcome.The Promises of God are YES and AMEN!
awesome scriptures Amy ! to me these are proof positive that the innocent will not be left behind.Proverbs 1:7
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction
Amy, that was superb. Well done!
Do the adherents of the false religions put 2 and 2 together when the Christians and their kids are gone up?
This is the END OF THE AGE not the end of the world 7 years are still to tick off God's clock for his word to be fulfilled. It is because of this fact that unless your child is BORN AGAIN they will be left behind as in the flood of Noah's day. I'm sorry but I don't believe all children automatically go and this generation of young children are different as they are more knowledgeable than any generation before them solely because of all the machines involved in childrens life.(The Internet, I-Pods, Cell Phones, etc...) Which leaves very few kids who are naive' anymore thereby probably lowering this generations age of accounability given the evil for example of the 'cool' games everyone are obsessed with for these things are incredible distractions and addicting behaviors. I could keep going on how it seems like this generation of children seem lost with their tatoos and apathetic attitudes.
I agree with earthsiege that this generation's "age of accountability" is probably lower than previous generations. However, that being said, I do not believe Christ will leave my 2-year-old toddler behind in the Rapture. BUT, I have a friend with a 5-year-old daughter who knows right from wrong, and chooses the wrong a lot of the time.
I wouldn't be so quick to blame the ipods and the TV's and Internet, while they're certainly a factor. I believe this generations' young parents coddling their children instead of correcting them are teaching the children to manipulate their parents through tantrums and endless crying to get what they want--like my friend's 5-year-old daughter. And that opens the door to blatant sin at a younger age in my eyes.
~~BeckaWhom have I in heaven but You? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides You. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. ~~Psalm 73:25-26 (ESV)
Interesting point - it would seem scripture supports either a yes or a no.
I agree with the fact that God is a God of great mercy and compassion and everything will work out to the good of God in His own perfect way. Thus we should not worry about these things because we know and trust that God is perfect in His goodness.
I would not like to see children left behind but I have a "gut feel" that children not being brought up in the ways of the Lord may be..... remember God will send a great delusion to those left behind so that they shall believe a lie - I think it would be pretty hard to believe a gross lie if your little ones had been taken...then again perhaps not. Im vacillitating here!!!
Point being - God knows what is right and will be just concerning this.
ysiC, SusanBut the greatest of all - is love
oh my,why do you believe children are born sinfull.the lord created them in his secret place and the lord does not created anything sinfull.children are innocent,why would he leave innocent children behind that would be forced to take the mark of the beast and according to your beliefs be punished in everlasting torment and hellfire.do you think so little of god that he'd do that to innocent babies and children ?all children will be taken at the rapture.regardless of there parents beliefs.as for the age of accountability a child is still a child untill puberty.why would you think such evil of the lord.he is wholey good and light not darkness.wake up to your silly doctrines of man.
People here of course are not speaking evil of the Lord. That is a false accusation. These brothers and sisters love God and love you too sister, and have treated you with love and respect. Please don't accuse them of speaking evil. I am very protective of my brothers and sister here. I don't like them being ccused of speaking evil of our Lord.
It says in the Bible that every person is born into sin. There is not one without sin. God doesn't make us sinful, the world is sinful and we are born into it with a sin nature that separates us from God. Please, sister read your Bible! I know you mean well and want to correct others. You may have a real heart to be a teacher, but you first must learn what the Bible says before correcting others. You have been save for 6 months right? Listen to what people here are saying. They have studied for years, are wise and are led by the Spirit.“I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” — Romans 8:18
"oh my,why do you believe children are born sinful"
YES they are, I can provide scripture if you want Danielle
let me ask you this... Do you need to teach a child to be disobedient? NO, its a natural thing, its called SIN.
All of us pre tribers bring up the flood, Sodom and Gomorrah as pictures for a pre trib rapture and that is accurate but we can not pick and choose what we like or what we think is just or fair, I dont read of any children of the wicked or lost being brought into the ark or spared with Lot, granted it was a different dispensation but God changes not and his judgements are righteous and just, He is GOD.
Danielle you need to read when GOD told Joshua to kill every man , woman and child in Canaan, so what does that mean?? Acoording to whatever doctrine you believe?
You say God does not create anything sinful... of course not, He did not create lucifer sinful, He did not create Adam sinful, they chose to disobey or rebel and became sinful , it was their choice and ver since the fall of Adam sin is carried to every human born of flesh, So why does Jesus say " ye must be bong again"?
But the questiion here is if the chidren of non believers will be left behind,
I believe based on scripture that they will, I could be wrong of course but that does not mean that if they die in the tribulation they are lost, You say the age of accountabilty is puberty? do you have any scripture for that?
You are treating the love of GOD like a sentimental thing, feeling and emotions are tools that the enemy uses to deceive us.
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD" . . Isaiah 55:8
How many times did Jesus say “It is written”
Dannielle, learn the Truth and realize the Word of God does not contradict, nor bend to a human's appealing interest of interpretation.
God Eternal Holy and Just has given usThe Authority of His Word in Scripture as Truth to be trusted.
Through the Inspiration of the Holy Spirit we accept what Jesus says: “the Scripture cannot be broken”. .
God’s declaration in Scripture is that it and it alone, is His final AUTHORITY in ALL matters of the true Christian's faith . .“For your Maker is your husband, the LORD of hosts is His name; and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel; He is called the God of the whole earth.” — Isaiah 54:5
