>> All those Egyptian babies that died when the Angel of Death killed the first born on that first Passover were NOT sent to hell.<<

I always shudder at statements like that. How far does one carry that thought? Are all babies of the heathen saved? What about the babies of Muslims, or other not Christian beliefs? Like you said, there is no scriptural basis for that belief. Basing a belief on human emotion or desires is ill advised.

Why would talking about the grace of God that is so great that he will not condemn an innocent baby who dies to an eternity in hell make you shudder? Thinking our God would do so makes me shudder. Can any and all people come to saving faith in Christ no matter what their parents believed? What kind of God would send innocent babies who were killed before they even knew right from wrong to an eternity of suffering in hell? Yes, Scripture isn't precise about this subject, but from what it DOES say, I choose to trust that the God of all the earth does right and He is good.

Because its espousing beliefs not based on scripture. In fact, more evidence exists to refute.

Psalm 51:5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me.

Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

John 3:18 He who believes on Him is not condemned, but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only-begotten Son of God.

What about children of believers?

Acts 16:30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? 31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

Thus the urgency to tell all who will listen.
