Why does the church sin?
If Jesus said suffer the children to come unto me why does the church send them all to hell if they die unbaptised? Many parents work quickly to get their newborns baptised in those first hours or days. But why are some churches so cruel as to promote this? Is the church the real sinner here? Or the newborn? Jesus said they were all to come, yet even St. Augustine speaks of unbaptised children going to hell. Without cruelty of overwhelming fear and guilt the church cannot exist, if it was only about love and forgiveness, they would have nothing.
