Babies Go to Heaven When They Die!

It's a heresy of the Roman Catholic Church (and in extension the "Orthodox" churches which are basically Roman Catholic in doctrine of divinity and salvation except for a few changes) that unbaptized babies do not go to Heaven but to limbo. Again- I will NOT appeal to the Council of Trent but rather the Scriptures, the infallible Word of God for the answer. Recently the Vatican can't even make its mind up with the current Pope Benedict XVI.

First and foremost, babies have not yet sinned so they have not yet in the need of getting saved, their names are STILL in the Book of Life. A sinner gets condemned only when they first break the Law. Now to get straight to the discussion of babies going to Heaven- with the story of King David in 2 Samuel 12. If you remembered 2 Samuel 11, it narrates the whole sin between David and Bathsheba in which it greatly displeased God.

2 Samuel 12:23 says, "But now he is dead wherefore should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall got o him but he shall not return to me." This was in reference to the first child David and Bathsheba had together. David was confident though his baby will not return to him but he will one day return to his baby boy with Bathsheba when he dies, therefore proving that he knew that he would one day see his son in Heaven. By the way limbo is another made-up place by pagan tradition later transported into the Roman Catholic Church!
