What happens when children die?

Doubtless you heard of the very tragic school shooting in CT.

At least 20 children, mostly of kindergarten age, were killed.

And 6 Adults also died in the tragedy.

So, you are likely asking, What happens when infants and young children  die?

And What happens when adults die?

Is there is a difference?


And it has to do with the "age of accountability."

Since the ages of the children, currently being reported on the news, ranges from about 5 to 9, these children are now in Heaven with Jesus and oodles of other children and adults.

Is there any scripture to back this up? you ask.

Well, yes, and the answer is in 3 parts.

because for adults, i.e. those who have reached the "age of accountability," more is involved.
