Q. Someone asked about children conceived after the rapture. This jogged my memory about the children who will be raptured. It would seem to me that 1 Cor 7:14 talks to this subject. Do you agree?
A. 1 Cor 7:14 says, “For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified through her believing husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy.”
This doesn’t mean that one believing parent in a family can save all the others. It means that the believing spouse sanctifies the marriage in God’s eyes for the sake of making the children legitimate offspring.
It doesn’t pertain to children going in the rapture, either. All children below the age of reason are considered innocent in God’s eyes and will go in the rapture. In Romans 7:9 Paul wrote, “Once I was alive apart from the law, but when the commandment came, sin sprang to life and I died.” By this he meant that below the age of accountability He was not held responsible for his sins and had eternal life. Once he reached that age he became accountable for his sins and was destined for death.
