All little ones go to heaven...

Good day Mars,

     I would like to take this opportunity to express my deepest heartfelt sorrow and compassion for the lives that were so abruptly taken from us. I work in Americas school system and I also have a 6 year old niece, so I cry sometimes because at any moment this could me or her.
But I am assured that all children before they reach the age of accountability(about 7 or 12) and according to scriptures in the bible, that God doesn't let the "little ones" go astray. Littel ones are taught by Jesus in Matthew 18, meaning actual little children and born again believers. Unfortunately it is the adults in the lives of our little ones who must take on that responsibility of raising them towards right and away from wrong.
     The bible does clearly state in Matthew 18:1-5, "At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”2 He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. 3 And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. And Jesus said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Read all of Matthew 18, it's good!
     Some will argue otherwise but I truly believe not through my emotions  or wishful thinking but through this particular scripture and others that (the children who died brutely on Friday in Connecticut) are in heaven. But here's the catch, some will argue all are sinful from birth while this is true according the word of God. There is original sin (Adam and Eve) and actual sin (us when we start to commit and are held responsible by God). Moreover, for the parents of these children  who desire to see their child again, who are in with the Lord, they must be born again by way of the Blood of Jesus Christ.
     Lastly, Jesus took an actul child and clearly told the disciples that unless they "convert" because they were in the age of accountability, and become like that child who have not yet been accountable, they will Never, enter into heaven. So parents raise your children up in the way of the Lord Jesus, if you claim to be His believer, if not, and desire to be with your very young child who are in heaven, then you must do exactly what He instructed the disciples to do as well.

Be encouraged God is not concerning His promises...
