For Christian moms: If you have a child that goes to hell, will you be truly happy in heaven?

Don't say my child won't go to hell. It is a question for thought.

  • If there was a hell (& I don't believe there is) I would rather not exist than know my child was there.

  • The bible says there will be no more tears or sadness in Heaven... no more pain. So going by that, Yes I will be truly happy in Heaven.

  • I am a christian mommy and don't believe that God would give me such a precious gift to send it to hell if something were to happen.

    So-I really can't answer your Q.

  • I dont think a child is going to go to hell unless he is old enough to know the difference between right and wrong and able to know about what it means to accept the lord as his savior, and its true we wont be sad in heaven only tears of joy!!!

  • I don't believe that would happen, but none of us can truely answer this question. Only time will tell and when it's our time then we will know.

    How can you honestly be happy and at peace when your child is suffering? Do you think you will forget of they ever existed? Do you think your heart will be hardend to care?

    I do not mean if they die as a child. I mean they can live a full life. How will you be happy knowing your loved one is in eternal pain?

  • I believe in Heaven, we will no longer remember those who are not with us there. So therefore yes, we will be happy

  • I am not Christian but I could never ever ever be at peace or happy thinking my child were suffering. Nothing could come in the way of my love for her. I know God would never create a "hell" anyway.

  • Once you're in heaven all you will care about is being in the presence of God. I'm not even sure if we'll recognized people there since we won't have our bodies.
