I like going thru the checkout stand at the grocery store and reading all the outrageous headlines on the weekly magazines. This headline was written that way but with an inkling of truth.
Satan’s plan as I understand it was to allow us to come to earth, but take away our agency so we could not sin. We would then be "worthy" to return back to God. (I won’t go into Satan wanting to be God and other aspects of his plan here on this post)
It appears to me that God did pretty much the same thing with all the infant children who die and those who die before the age of accountability. They come to this earth, they don’t (can’t) sin and then get to return back to God. What good is agency to them? They’re guaranteed the Celestial Kingdom, the same guarantee Satan proposed.
I’ve always been told that these spirits "proved" themselves in the premortal life and therefore didn’t need to on this earth. So I "proved" myself too! If I proved to be Celestial then why am I here and they are not? If they and God are ok with being proved in the premortal life and then having an infant death with guaranteed Celestial Kingdom, then what about the rest of us? If I proved to be Terrestial and God knew it and I know God is God and just, then why not just assign me to a kingdom after a nice little earth life?
If God knows me and where I’ll end up then why all the earth problems? Why does it take years of suffering, refining, etc. to become qualified for the Celestial Kingdom. Am I just proving it to myself, because I don’t believe God? If God doesn’t know us well enough to determine where we’ll end up, then how can He allow so many a "free ride" to the Celestial Kingdom with no earthlife experiences, suffering, refining etc?
What’s going on here?
