You see I am a follower of the spiritual ideas of Emanuel Swedenborg’s theological writings. He claimed that all children go to heaven because they die in innocence. Heaven consists of those who are in innocence.
I personally have no such guarantee.
Since I have grown up to reach the age of responsibility, my only guarantee of obtaining heavenly happiness is if I regain my innocence through spiritual wisdom and living according to a spiritual conscience.
I am constantly aware that I can blow it through bad choices. So, in a way, having a full belly as an adult puts me in greater spiritual jeopardy than a starving child.
We have to feed both bodily bellies and spiritual bellies.
