Babies, Limbo, Purgatory, and God's Plan


Is there a way to have an overview of God's plan of salvation? What is the fate of babies and the severely mentally handicapped who die? Was John Calvin's condemnation of infants, which many later also taught, correct? What about Limbo? Does the Church of Rome teach that it must exist or not? When did the Church of Rome begin to adopt its purgatory doctrine? Have some Catholics taught the "Gospel of Purgatory" in the 21st century? What about the influence of the condemnation of Orgenism? Did pagans like Virgil teach something that sounds like Purgatory? Was Purgatory an original doctrine of the early Christian church? Does the Eastern Orthodox Church accept the doctrine of purgatory? Will babies and others who were uncalled in this age be resurrected and have 100 years to live? Does the Bible teach this? Did Augustine of Hippo teach against those who felt God had a highly merciful plan? Is God only going to save an infinitesimally small percentage of humanity or will His plan result in the salvation all all who wish to be saved? Dr. Thiel address these issues and more in the seventh part of an eight-part series on God's plan to offer salvation to all.
