You should know that it is actually a blessing to be born as an entity, to be able to understand self worth, to have self recognition on a higher level, and to know that you alone , (besides the fact of your creator), are the only reason for your now existence (and towards heaven).
Is it a blessing if that child is born and then later rejects the gospel and ends up in Hell?Â
This is the big issue here. Every potential Christian parent should be terrified at the possibility that their child may end up rejecting Jesus. Would it be better to not ever have any children at all so as to avoid the horror of your beloved child ending up in Hell? I mean just imagine how you will be feeling in Heaven knowing that your child is suffering in agony in Hell (if you believe in eternal Hell that is). Or how you will feel rubbing shoulders with the person that sentenced them to that suffering?Â
These are issues I never even thought about as a Christian. However they stand out to me now like a sore thumb.

No one will miss what they are not reaching for, and if you reach for your children and you are in heaven, then your love will welcome them in and they will find new understandings.
So it is not to fear for that of your children, and you find yourself in heaven ! If you love your children they have safe haven.
Besides, a person probably wouldn't find themselves in heaven if they were responsible in any way for harming their children. ( But if a person were to ask their children for forgiveness, the child might save them. )
Everyone is going to meet Jesus. It's whether or not they understand that it is at this juncture where it is decided , your ( by you ) new direction.
It is wise to head in the direction of righteousness, and this is achievable. (Through forgiveness ) (it's a cleansing thought.)
. Because embodiment is a God given. ( So if you find yourself in spirit, be aware of your creator or, don't be aware, (except of yourself, all your memories and time.)
Christians have the benefit of knowing the Lord Jesus exists, so they don't have to assume a sad point in the ending. But understand and know their God ( which does exist) will deliver all promised.
Love is where the power is. (It doesn't end ).
