Top 100 Atheist Challenges

So all infants and children who have ever lived and died as non-Christians are sentenced by God to suffer eternally in hell? That's kind and 'all-loving'.

As shown elsewhere, only those who place explicit trust in Christ can be saved. From this it follows that if any infant is in heaven, it is because infants in general do not fall under the category of those who require salvation (presumably because they do not commit sins). As it happens, 2 Samuel 12:23 tells us that David will go to be with his infant child (in Heaven, presumably). Thus, we may justifiably infer that all those who die as infants go to Heaven.
