One night at Church my pastor was talking about age of accountability, where children who are old enough to understand and believe in God, don't, and therefore go to Hell. I thought it was total bullshit. There is a certain AGE? So I asked him, well what about children who have never even heard of God? He told me that they should know, even if they're family believes different. So they go to Hell. Well I thought that was wrong and my pastor basically told me that I was sinning because I should never doubt God and to think that I know better then Him or that he is wrong, was very wrong of me.
So... can someone explain this to me? Is there a certain age? Does God send children to Hell who have never heard of Him? Because that is very wrong. I know that. How could God not see that? I just don't understand how people can believe this all this horse shit.

This is so far out there and I can't even relate at all. I wish I had an answer but I really don't think there is one. Does every different religion believe that the people in other religions won't go to Heaven? Well, I sure hope that there are a lot of heavens, one for each religion. As for Hell, We are all already living in it. There is no alternative to Heaven. It may just take longer for some of us to get there. That's what I choose to believe. Your Pastor is Wrong. His is just trying to instill fear into you and the other parishioners. It's textbook brainwashing/control techniques. Sorry if I offend. That's my opinion & I'm Catholic.
