All Children Are Alive in Christ

Latter Day Mormons and members of The Latter Day Church of Jesus Christ know that through the atonement Christ paid the ultimate sacrifice and paid the debt for Adams transgression. We know that the second Article of faith tells us this when it says ‘We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam's transgression’.

Much of Christianity is tainted with the false doctrine of original sin which tells them that all men are born under condemnation and tainted with the sin of Adam. There are millions of people professing to believe in Christ the Lord who believe that all children are born under this condemnation. The Latter Day Church of Jesus Christ state that this is dangerous and indeed a very false doctrine and we do not adhere to it or any of its principles. The Latter Day Church maintains that this is the most damnable doctrine ever taught by the false religions of men.

Latter Day Mormons and all those that belong to The Latter Day Church of Jesus Christ now that no child ever born to man is subject to sin until they reach the age of accountability, until they begin to know and to understand right from wrong and become accountable before God almighty according to the age which he himself has appointed unto man, which is eight years of age. We therefore state that baptism means nothing in the case of infants because they can not repent, they have nothing to repent of in the first place, let us not forget that not only is baptism and outward symbol that you choose to follow God but also used for the remission of sins.

Let is be made clear today that we believe that God has not placed any taint upon any little child no matter how or where they come into this world, it is through the atoning blood of Christ that they are redeemed from all of Adams sin, Christ took it upon himself that is the great work of the atonement, let us remember that the scriptures tell us that ‘The glory of God is intelligence, or, in other words, light and truth. Light and truth forsake that evil one. Every spirit of man was innocent in the beginning; and God having redeemed man from the fall, men became again, in their infant state, innocent before God’.(D&C 93: 36-38). This revealed truth given to us by God tells us that all children are innocent in the beginning, which means before the foundation of the world, before Satan rebelled, all men are created innocent. Make no mistake when a child is born it is born clean and innocent from the sin of the world and from past generations.

It is with this in mind that we know that all children who are born are innocent and that if they should be called home to the presence of God in their infancy they will be called home to the full Celestial Glory of God. It matter not to God whether that infant or baby is a Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, or any faith you can imagine they are all the same in the sight of God. What a Joyful blessing this is that we proclaim to the world, is it not right that all those that grieve or have grieved for the loss of a little one should know that their little one is not lost but is safe and at peace in the arms of the Lord.

The Lord has made it very clear to us that the age of accountability is that of eight years. After we reach our eighth birthday, we are supposed to have understanding sufficient enough to choose to be baptised, it is the Lord who takes care of those under this age, and little children under the age of accountability are not subject to the law of repentance. This is something that God has declared himself, it is not something that the church has decided to implement but rather it is the eternal law of God.

The crowning glory of all Latter Day Mormons is to be married in the sight of God man with women, when they are joined together they are not only fulfilling the commandment of God but the commandment of eternity. It is with the great union that Man and Women become as the Gods and are endowed from on high to create life and do as the Gods before them and bring in to being life from the eternal world unto this mortal world. As parents we are given the blessings of creating the temples that will house the father’s spirits and in turn it is our duty to make sure that those temples and spirits are looked after and that they fulfil the measure of their creation. Let us not forget that we, each and everyone of us were all mature spirits before we were born, and the bodies of the little children that we have been endowed to create will grow just as our sprit has done little by little. Latter Day Mormons know that the Father loves all his children just as we love our children and he would not allow any of his small and innocent children to be denied access to him if they should die before the age of accountability.

It is therefore the duty of every Latter Day parent to teach their children the truth, to bring them up in the way of the Lord, to teach them the first principles of the Gospel, to teach them the necessity of baptism for the remission of sins and for membership in the church of Christ. It is your duty to teach them the things that pertain to the kingdom of God that they may comprehend the truth and walk in the light of Christ that they may have the fellowship of him with them all the days of their lives. Latter day parents knowing the truth and knowing that they are the custodians of the spirits of the eternal father should always strive to bring their children up in the way they should go, keep them close to your heart, show them that you love them, that you are their parents that they are your children, and keep them near to you so that they will not go far from you in this world or the next.
