Are There Some Children Who Aren’t Saved?

Q. I would like to hear your thoughts on the following question. Does the Bible teach or do you believe all children before the age of accountability will go to heaven or is it possible that only those that God foreknew would accept him had they lived longer would go to heaven? Thanks and may God continue to bless your ministry.

A. There are two verses that lead us to conclude that all children are secure. One is Matt.18:10 which explains that all children are assigned guardian angels to protect them. These angels report continuously to God.

The other is Romans 7:9 where in effect Paul said that he had eternal life until he reached the age of accountability. You could say that God knew Paul would be saved, but I think he was using himself as a general example not a specific case. Based on these verses I believe that all children below the age of accountability are saved.
