Every parent who has lost a child has dealt with disturbing, haunting questions."Why my child? Where is my baby now? Will I ever see my child again?^ Renowned Bible expositor John MacArthur tackles the question of infant death (in the womb or following birth) in his trademark style -- with detailed attention to Scriptures that hold the answers. No death occurs apart from the purposes of God, MacArthur assures readers, just as no life occurs apart from the purposes of God.^ With a pastor's heart, he leads readers to an understanding of the eternal destination of these precious little ones. His conclusion: Babies -- and anyone else who has not reached the condition of accountability -- go to heaven when they die, and there will, indeed, be a time of blessed reunion with these souls.^This comforting book is certain to bring consolation to those experiencing this most painful loss.
The death of a child is the most devastating experience parents can ever face. And a perplexing experience for their Christian friends and loved ones. But God has not left you alone with grief. In Safe in the Arms of God, John MacArthur highlights the Bible's many references to God's unfailing love for children and His assurance of their eternal safety. Using numerous real-life examples, this renowned and personable teacher uncovers a biblical perspective on such troubling questions as: Why did our child have to die? Will we see our child again? How can we cope with our overwhelming sorrow? What is the age of accountability? Do babies pay for the sins of their parents? Can infants and even the unborn experience salvation? What is heaven like for children? Throughout this book, Pastor MacArthur affirms this expectation: The Father delights in, and shows compassion to, His younger ones. "Every child conceived," he writes, "is a God-created and God-loved person with a God-given purpose and destiny." Therefore, God's love enfolds every child -- from the first moment of life to the last. Book jacket.
