It is your theory that all will be "completely brought back to Him". I find that in conflict with just way too many scriptures.

I certainly understand.

You have to look at things totally different to see it - the damnation/hell/outer darkness is acceptable as long as you believe that we are divided as having both a soul (the carnal nature) and a spirit (which is brought into union with Him upon our accepting Him as Savior). We still have the carnal nature in us today even after we've given our hearts to Him, of which we are called to die to as Paul put it; Jesus termed it "taking up our cross".

Refining is a major topic in both the OT and New, it's just overlooked by many - overlooking is probably the biggest flaw we have, because (it's my belief) we have a preconceived notion of what God is like as we're reading scripture.

That's another topic, though.

can't back it up with scripture but I believe it is there if someone would like to look.

therefore I believe all babies are in heaven.
I agree with you on this. But the key words are Age of Accountability. For some kids, they understand what it means to be saved and how to live as a chirstian as young as 6. I have seen and heard 6 year olds accept Jesus Christ as their personal saviour.

i agree..age of accountability can be 6,10, 20, or possibly never for some. God knows us...he knows if we are accountable or not. It is not the same for everyone.
