Handicapped?

Do Jews go to hell? Do the mentally handicapped have Original Sin if they cannot confess, like wise for the deaf and dumb?

Juanito

The answer to the first part of your question Juanito is John 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Jesus came to His chosen people and most of them rejected Him. But these verses don’t stop there. They also say that the Jews that did receive Him, He saved. Most of the Jews were looking for the Lion of Juda first, and ignored the fact that the Lord had to come as the Lamb first. So the facts are that if the Jew accepts the Lord Jesus Christ as Messiah they will not go to hell but if they don’t they are condemned already the same as everyone else. John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

And what about the mentally handicapped? If these who never have been able to realize they’re sinners have never been convicted by the law, and know they have transgressed against God. The bible says: Romans 4:15 Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression. 4:16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all, They in effect fall into the category of a baby who knows no transgression and is innocent until he/she matures and realizes their sins. If they die before they reach that accountable age, they have a secure place under the Grace of God in Heaven.

The deaf and the blind that have the capacity to reason, all face the same choice. Blindness and deafness are not barriers from the Gospel. Handicaps yes, but not barriers. I think it is best to note that one of my dear friends in this ministry is deaf and he is counted among the brethren. His testimony is saved and sealed until Jesus takes him home. And I have know many blind brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, and I share the same handicap they have. That handicap is the personal sin nature that needed a Savior.
