13. The existence of limbo is not a doctrine. Only speculation at best.

Theologians were hard pressed to find a way out of the dilemma that people, including innocent babies, could not enter heaven is they were not baptized. This nonsense can be traced to what many considered as heresy being propagated by especially Augustine and Jerome. Many opposed their radical views such as predestination and original sin. It is ironic that many of the Protestant Reformation's leading theologians based their opposition based primarily on the writing of some of the most radical of the early third century church leaders as a reaction to the Catholic leadership's moral decline.

Christianity's infatuation with the inherent evilness of human sexuality, except for strictly the propagation of the race, can be traced to the efforts of these same pair of theologians. They actually connected the doctrine of original and its manner of transference to innocent children with the sexual climax which they termed as concupiscence. They were not without opposition, but their concepts did prevail. Most people don't realize the doctrine of original sin and the need for apologetic teaching such as limbo, were never part of the beliefs of the Jewish theologians. They have have consistently determined that sin is something you commit not something that is inherited. I didn't mean to start a theological discussion, but these facts have bearing on the present situation. The death of the young boy must be regarded as tragic and not used to bolster asinine heretical teachings. People who make themselves Christian authorities should ask the simple question. What would Jesus do? I think they will find the answer to very simple.
