Matthew 15:11 "Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man."

Mary, this is an age old question from people who want to prove that either God doesn't exist or that He is not the loving God Whom we say He is. There is no easy, clear answer that can be given which will satisfy those enquirers. We know that God is a God of Love - that is Who He is & the reason why we are here as are all of His creation. We also know that He never wanted anyone to die, but man chose to disobey Him & to be arrogant to Him, so the penalty of our sin is death & eternal separation from Him was the result. Then the questions: if we adults have to die, then why should the innocent children also die? Then if God stopped them from dying now, does that mean that He will let them die later or maybe not die at all? But we all have to die as a result of who we are & sadly, little children are also affected by this. Though Jesus did speak of those who wanted to harm the children as those deserving of death for their wickedness (Mt 18:6).

These are strange questions I've given but I'm trying to show that unfortunately, both adult & child have to suffer pain, hardship & death, simply because we are a fallen creation (sinners) living in a world once beautiful, but now reeling in the effects of that corruption. And when God looks at us in our troubles, He also sees us through His Son Who came to give His Life for us so that even if we have to die physically, we won't have to die spiritually in Hell. And this is the promise to all people who come to God by faith in Jesus' death at Calvary. And those little ones who die before their innocence is lost, will still go to Heaven as they have not sinned wilfully as a result of their sin nature. These are comforting to us Christians, but the unsaved will only want to see God as a cruel unloving Person. They need to know that we all die because of our sinful nature & disobedience to God - BUT God has given us an opportunity to enjoy eternal life in Heaven if we come back to Him in His way (Jn 14:6).
