|Bible Question: I have a Niece who was 6 weeks old, she passed away from SIDS, she was never baptized. There are a few members of my family who believe since she was never baptized she has gone to hell. I believe is she is with GOD. My question is, where in the bible can a read to ease this pain I feel when I am told you have to be baptized to go to heaven?|
Bible Answer: Hi
This is Seedling again. With using the verse Mark 16:16 I was pointing out that salvation does not rest upon baptism but on one's belief in God and his son Jesus. Baptism is important as it is a public confession of one's belief. Jesus was also baptized Mattthew 3:13-17.
Remember Titus 2:11 God brings the news of salvation to all, even little babies.
Hope and pray this helps!
