Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Can you please scope the question? I can honestly say that, from a Catholic perspective, children, born into (original) sin and then die before they are baptized, go to Limbo. – Double U Sep 7 '13 at 14:17
This is a duplicate of another question tat was closed as "primarily opinion-based ". This one will likely be closed for the same reason, but it could be salvaged with some editing... See Tips for editing a question to make it suitable for re-opening – David Sep 7 '13 at 14:20
For me, this question raises more questions than one might be able to objectively answer. – Pat Ferguson Sep 7 '13 at 17:23
There was a man who visited heaven and saw the souls of children who died before knowing evil. They are nursed by the angels and when they are 30 years old they are given some choices to do God's work and become angels. However, they are not allowed to enjoy the same privileges like those who are saved by the blood of Christ. They are only servants of God. – Mawia Sep 7 '13 at 17:42

It isn't clearly spelled out Biblically and thus most theologies have had to try to address it based on their own best guess. Answers can range from some form of limbo to automatically being saved as a result of not reaching the age of accountability from Jewish background, to being that they get the same choice as the rest of us to either reject God or accept him after their death when sitting at judgement or even that they were able to make that judgement in their heart right away.

The views are numerous and none of them can be shown to be outright correct or incorrect since there isn't a direct Biblical answer. We thus have to rely on what the Bible is clear about, that God is faithful and just, and that whatever actually happens, God will be fair to them.
