It seems that people were surprised to learn, in an article I wrote last week, that I presume my children to be unsaved. The article, What's Dead Looks Dead, expressed my belief that my children (ages 6, 3, and 3 months) are, at this time, likely unsaved and are thus spiritually dead. The subsequent discussion was very interesting and the commenters ranged from Reformed Baptists to Roman Catholics and just about everyone between. I was honestly very surprised at the reaction, for I had not thought that what I wrote was so controversial.
The comments turned quite quickly to a discussion of what happens to children who die in infancy. I'd like to discuss that issue along with my previous posts over the next couple of days.
Because this is an issue I have also studied through and come to similar conclusions on (so far), I look forward to Challies thought provoking series.
