What Is Your View on Babies Going to Heaven When They Die?

article May 23, 2018

Question from Reader:

In chapter 35 of Heaven, you talk about being reunited with infants who die. It seems in the beginning of this section that you are defending the idea that the presence of any sin in our children (which they are born into) will mean they are not saved.  Then later on, it seems you are saying that God may cover them with Christ’s blood despite the fact that they can’t confess their belief.  So, I think your stance is that children who die before they can confess their Savior may be saved.  But it’s not clear. Can you clarify?
According to Revelation 6:9-11, Will We Have Bodies in the Present Heaven? Or Just Souls?

According to Revelation 6:9-11, Will We Have Bodies in the Present Heaven? Or Just Souls?

Question from a reader: On page 46 of your book Heaven, it talks about the martyrs in Heaven, crying out to God for justice on Earth (Revelation 6:9-11). In the King James Version, Revelation 6:9 says their souls (not bodies) were crying to God. On page 64 of Heaven, #2 says “righteous men made perfect” (Hebrews 12:23). Again, in the King James Version, Hebrews 12:23 says “the spirits of just men made perfect.” According to the KJV, it seems that we will be souls or spirits in the present Heaven, but not have bodies. Is this correct?
