"Nowhere in the Bible is ignorance excused."

So now little children and babies go to hell. I believe they are ignorant of the situation. What about mentally challenged. What about people who do not just understand. I believe most do understand the Basic Gospel. Most will go to hell as stated in scripture who knowly reject. I knew people who out right did not care even if it was true when I witnessed.

If God can see whats inside a person's belief or unbelief for real. If he wants to forgive for ignorance who are you to say otherwise.

You just do not get it. It's still beyond your view. May God bless and Keep you safe. Praise Jesus! Thy Kingdom Come! Thy will be Done!

Apparently you did not read and/or understand my post. Salvation is a gift based upon the sovereignty of God. He elects those to be saved, based on His purposes. Those that He elects will profess faith in Christ some time in their life, if their faculties permit. Salvation for an individual was determined before the universe began, not at the moment of an alter call or a sinner's prayer. So, an infant or menally challenged person will be saved if they are of the elect. If not, they will burn in hell for their sins (and yes, an infant certainly sins (see Psalm 51:5).

If he wants to forgive for ignorance who are you to say otherwise.

Certainly God can do what He wants. He is sovereign. However, He tells us in His word that ignorance does save or excuse anyone. Jesus told the Pharisees that their father was the devil, precisely because they were ignorant of His coming. Ignorance didn't work out so well for them.

You just do not get it. It's still beyond your view. May God bless and Keep you safe.

Back atcha.
