Mar.23, 2005), denied 2-1 on appeal. http://www.ca11.uscourts.gov/opinions/ops/200511628.pdf Watts is also a graduate of The Florida State University, with his double major with honours in Biological and Chemical Science, some post baccalaureate education, a vocational associate's degree from United Electronics Institute, and some recent theological classes at Evangelical University -and a few classes in the "school of hard knocks." Mr. Watts is a Protestant Christian, attending the First Baptist Church at the Mall in Lakeland, Florida, the same church attended by famous Preterist author, Rev. John L. Bray. Gordon has read the Bible from cover-to-cover in the KJV, and now is part-way through in the AMP version – and continues his studies in the Bible – and in other areas, such as science, politics, and activism to help oppose unjust laws and seek change, consistent with the teachings of Jesus.

while I have to disagree with Gordon on this matter..for I myself believe that when they die they will go to heaven..and then once there..true..they will have the right to either accept God or reject Him..I can see gordons spent a lot of time researching this matter and has come to his conclusions..it just happens ..I have my own conclusions...as a fellow member of my church..I applauded him for his ability to speak his mind in this matter..
I have known this author for sometime and myself, being an author of 4 books and a long time pastor, have read much of this man's work and it is his passionate pursuing of theological truth has made me re-shift my own thinking and theology. His biblical wisdom and knowledge make this book a must-read for anyone who has ever wondered what happens to children, infants, toddlers, and babies if they die. To heaven, hell, or another place? I am sure you will find Scriptural support for his reason's and give this a 5 out of a 1 to 5 star rating.
We'll, I don't necessarily agree with the 1,000 year view point Brother Gordon makes (as I believe more so on the Preterism side of Eschatology) but I do see his theory. Very good one. The conclusion of the matter, is God must give us all free will to choose him or not, and while babies go to heaven at first (I believe) they must eventually choose to accept or reject him. The angels had a choice, and some choose to rebel against God even in the presence of God, so yes I do believe sense they didn't get a chance on earth, God will still give them a chance to accept or reject him.

I have changed my thinking on my own theological reasoning just because Mr. Watts digs deep into Scripture and compares line upon line to square his work with the Word of God. Believe me that you won't be disappointed with this sterling work.
Very insightful and compelling study on the subject. Also very informative.
I highly recommend this book to parents who lost their little ones when they were babies. This book will bring you clarity and answer painful questions. Gordon also offers a lot of support material for his conclusions on the topic.
