I believe that it is an accountability issue. I believe that God would not hold severe mentally disabled individuals accountable. I know that there more than likely not any scripture to back this up. It is an issue of the heart and I know my God is a God of Mercy and compassion. As far as the babies go I most definitly believe they go no question about their accountability.

What an extremely rude question.Have you ever been around disable people, i have, they are very loving.I'd really have to question a God that would send mentally disable or very young children to hell.I can't imagine a God who would send his son to die to redeem us would send disable people or very young children to hell.

1Sa 16:7 But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart. The cross of calvary was atonement for our sins. If it was necessary for another cross for physical ailments there would have been. IT is the heart and it's condition the Lord looks upon, not physical makeup. No handicapped bodies in Heaven, only perfected ones.

YES God knows us all more intimately than anyone else ever can. Nomatter what your challenge in life. He understands that this is a fallen world and things will go wrong not everything is our fault. He loves us all more than we can imagine at least in this mortal state. There is way more to all of us than what we appear to be on the outside, even to people who know us well. Even people with learning disabilities.

YES, YES, YES, people with disabilities go to heaven. Babies go to heaven. It is when we become of an accountable age and have been witnessed to about Christ, and have made a decision to follow Christ, and even on our death bed, given a chance to come to Christ, will we be able to know if we go to heaven. Remember, there are people of many religions who NOT been witnessed to, who also will see Christ, because they have passed away without been given a chance to choose Christ.

Paulette:
Sorry! I was answering the webmaster's headline: DISABILITY PEOPLE GO TO HEAVRN.
I'll be more careful next time.

Con - I already know my answer (yes they will, most definitely) but was pzzled by some who did not seem to think that babies would go to Heaven. Perr, I wasn't referring to PHYSICAL disabilities at all.
---Paulette on 6/16/05


yes they will.
---Eloy on 6/16/05


God doesn't explain all his actions to us or tell us everything he is going to do. I believe that he loves the disabled and that he will, in some way that he probably won't reveal to us, give them a chance to accept him. I believe he will welcome all who accept him into his kingdom when they die.

I think it is fair to say that NO PHYSICAL disability will keep anyone out of heaven who is supposed to be there because those who are going to go there will be given new/perfect bodies!

I believe it all depends on the severity of disability. If their mental ability, not physical age, are equivalent to that of a child who is not accountable for knowing right and wrong, then yes I believe they are covered by God's grace. If a person has severe disabilities but has a good cognitive ability and understands right from wrong and can be held accountable for their actions, then I believe they need to seek forgiveness and salvation just like anyone else.

Paulette, I never fail to be amused by the self appointed experts who make statements that seem to bind almighty God to certain actions according to how they interpret bits of text from the scriptures... If a loving God allows an innocent creature to be born into this world or withhold from it the power of reason, would he deny it eternal happiness on account of what we would call a "technicality " ? You answer....! God bless !
---Con on 6/15/05


of course they will and so will the babies. <>< to much intellect and not enough Jesus.

Hi. I had a handicapped child that died when he was 9. He couldnt see well, hear well, couldnt talk and was developmentally delayed.Whenever I took him to church he would immediately sit down at his table in sunday school and he knew where he was. After he died the Lord showed me that he was in heaven with him. So I firmly believe that handicapped people are with Him.
