Do aborted babies have the hope of heaven?

Cradle My Heart Radio | Eric Eichinger airs 1-28-18

Podcast playback:

One of the pressing questions for women and men grieving after abortion is, “What about the baby?”

The Bible doesn’t give a clear answer with a proof text verse we can cling to for the assurance of heaven for children who die before birth or in infancy.

But that doesn’t leave us with only heartbreak and unanwered questions.

Pastor Eric Eichinger has grappled with the question of the eternal lives of such children from a theological point as well as from a pastor’s heart.

He joins us on Cradle My Heart Radio this week to search the Scriptures for our comfort in light of God’s grace.

We’ll also discuss the many theological teachings represented by the responses to our Facebook post on this topic.
