If a child is a blessing from God in laestadianism, then what would a dead infant (by means of spontaneous or induced abortion) mean? Perhaps, God wants the child to die? What does it mean for a child to be a blessing from God (in Lutheranism)?

Are there any laestadians here? It may not be the best place to ask. –  curiousdannii Jun 1 at 5:30

It means that someone did not have faith that God would help take care of the child. God does not want children to die, but if they do he has a plan.

John 6:39 NKJV

This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day.

How do you show that it is laestadian theology? –  Anonymous May 1 at 22:55
    
I doubt that many Lutherans have the bad idea that suffering has a direct causal connection to a lack of faith. –  curiousdannii Jun 1 at 7:21
