Saving The Children

Q. In your article, The Feast of Pentecost, you said”

“One day soon now, all who are in Christ, having heard and believed the Word of Truth, the Gospel of our salvation, thereby receiving the mark of the promised Holy Spirit, will suddenly disappear from the face of the Earth. Included among them will be all children and those mentally incapable of making informed choices.”

If all children are also raptured, then why were not the children in Noah’s time saved? Or in Sodom?

A. In Noah’s time there was no group specifically told they’d be spared the judgment, like the Church has been promised today. There were only those who chose to get on the Ark and those who chose not to. However, I believe all the children belonged to God even then. We’re not given any details on this but I think the children’s earthly lives ended mercifully and they were immediately ushered into Paradise to await the Redeemer. I think the same is true of Sodom, and innocent victims of other judgments down through the ages as well.
