Alan Kurschner: Mr. IgnorantAlan Kurschner is a James White wannabe who knows about as much theology as my cat knows New Testament Greek. Alan's recent article, Dave Hunt Denies Original Sin, takes his ignorance to a new level.
Alan's proof that Dave Hunt has denied original sin is based on a statement Hunt made that babies do not go to hell. Hear me again: Dave Hunt said that dead babies do not go to hell.
For Alan, to maintain that all babies go to heaven is equal to denying the doctrine of original sin. Alan apparently believes at least some dead babies will go to hell and burn forever . What a lovely God he has.
The "babies in hell" view is preposterous. While John Calvin, and James White no doubt, would be proud of Alan, other Calvinists would be appalled. Al Mohler and Dan Akin wrote Why we Believe Young Children Who Die Go to Heaven which Alan should take the time to read.
Mohler and Akin wrote,
in James 4:17, the Bible says, "Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn't do it, sins." The Bible is clear that we are all born with a sin nature as a result of being in Adam (Roman 5:12). This is what is called the doctrine of original sin. However, the Scriptures make a distinction between original sin and actual sins. While all are guilty of original sin, moral responsibility and understanding is necessary for our being accountable for actual sins (Deuteronomy 1:30; Isaiah 7:16). It is to the one who knows to
do right and does not do it that sin is reckoned. Infants are incapable of such decisions.
But this is precisely what Dave Hunt said! Alan quoted Hunt as saying, "The fact is that they [babies] did not sin. They died as babies. It wouldn’t be just to condemn to hell. What are they going to suffer for in hell? What deeds have they done?"
