Heaven or hell.

What does the Bible say?

You asked:

If a baby (child) died immediately after birth. Where will the child go?

Is this a personal question from you or a member of your family, or are you just thinking about the question?

Have you looked at what the Bible says about this topic?

First, consider what the Bible says about heaven or hell. What are the standards to go to the presence of God? What are the conditions in which a person goes to judgment after death? What biblical passages carry the most weight to you?

Second, does the Bible make particular mention of children, and their state of sin or righteousness? Are there biblical mentions of the death of children in the Bible? (I know that there are. David's first child by Bathsheba comes to mind.)

Third, if there are several options to choose, and if you have not yet made up your mind, which options or answers seems to make the most sense to you right now? Or have you already had this question answered to your satisfaction?
