If they die before reaching the age of accountability, they are saved. After that, they are responsible for their own salvation. What do you think? Age of accountability - a Christian perspective http://biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2%20Samuel%2012:22-23&version=NIV 2009-10-08T13:38:19-05:00 The Bible never gives an explicit indication that there is such a thing as the age of accountability--the age at which a child is responsible for their faith; however, we're given indications throughout that God has a plan and a purpose for every child. It seems cruel and not in keeping with God's especial declarations concerning children to think that just because a child died before personally professing their faith they would be condemned.
