"...and so death spread to all men, because all sinned." Romans 5:12

When I commit my first sin, then I suffer spiritual death (separation from God).

Jesus spoke of infants and young children:


And they were bringing even their babies to Him so that He might touch them, but when the disciples saw it, they began rebuking them. But Jesus called for them, saying, "Permit the children to come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these." Luke 18:15-16 (NAS)

How does it make you feel that the kingdom of God belongs to babies and young children who have no sin?

Note: The Bible says that a son does not inherit the sins of his parents:

Ezekiel 18:20 says: "The person who sins will die. The son will not bear the punishment for the father's iniquity, nor will the father bear the punishment for the son's iniquity; the righteousness of the righteous will be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked will be upon himself." (NAS)

Jesus spoke of older children; those who were old enough to believe:


Jesus also spoke of children who were old enough to believe that were caused to stumble or sin.

"And whoever receives one such child in My name receives Me; but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it is better for him that a heavy millstone be hung around his neck, and that he be drowned in the depth of the sea." Matthew 18:5-6 (NAS)

How terrible a thing it is when a little one who believes in Jesus is caused to stumble (Romans 6:23 says "the wages of sin is death"). How terrible it is for one who causes that little one to stumble.

God's plan for those of us who have sinned:

God sent His Son to that those who believe and obey Him might become as little children again:

"At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, "Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" And He called a child to Himself and set him before them, and said, "Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 18:1-6 (NAS)

"Jesus answered, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God." John 3:5  (NAS)

Jesus said "He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned." Mark 16:16 (NAS)

"Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, in order that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection..." Romans 6:3-5 (NAS)
