"If not, they will burn in hell for their sins (and yes, an infant certainly sins (see Psalm 51:5)."

So why does Christ say blessed the little One's

In Matthew 18:10, Jesus says of children: "See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven"

WHY So their set up for hell. Very Morbid.

Context, context, context. Mt 18 is not talking of literal children; it uses the child metaphor for believers (see Mt 18:3-5). Mt 18 speaks of God's love for his Church (all believers) and warns against their abuse.
