Belief when a 2yr old dies...

We buried a two year old today at church. Do you tell people he's in heaven?

As I was thinking this through I realised that Jesus demanded all people to become like little children to enter the kingdom of heaven. Maybe my problem is that I have an inflated opinion of the mature adult ability to confess Jesus and enter the kingdom of heaven. So instead of wondering if children are saved, I began to wonder where I got my thought that I could earn heaven be rational thoughts rather than grace.

If infants cannot be saved, neither am I.
"I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 18:3
