Many have never had to experience the suffering of losing an unborn baby or an infant. It may be hard for us to imagine the emotions of those who have suffered such a loss. Of course, parents will mourn such a loss deeply. Some mothers have suffered the loss of their children before they were born. Others have lost a child to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or some other tragedy. Yet, each living with their loss. For a mother, she will know how old her child would be had they survived on any given day. As Christians Should we have hope in a resurrection to restore what has been lost? We will ask this question again at the end and answer it.

WHY DON'T YOU BELIEVE WAITING ON GOD WORKING FOR GOD

John Macarthur says that

  1. All infants dying in infancy go to heaven
  2. He gives a REASON for his position
  3. His reason is a complete denial of the biblical gospel.

MacArthur says that all infants dying in infancy go to heaven because “they enter and leave the world without being touched by sin.” The whole reason for man’s needing salvation is that we all sinned IN ADAM, therefore, we are all born guilty of sin. Without this teaching, we have a completely different Savior from the one in the Bible.

END OF STATEMENT

Sin is anything not in agreement with, therefore opposed to, God’s personality, standards, ways, and will. Thus, sin anything damaging our connection with God. It can be something we say (Job 2:10; Ps 39:1), something we do (Lev. 20:20; 2Co 12:21), or something that we fail to do (Num. 9:13; James 4:17). Sin can also be in our mind, that is our inner person (Prov. 21:4; compare also Ro 3:9-18; 2Pe 2:12-15). If we begin to lack faith in God, this can become a major sin. – Heb. 3:12-13, 18-19.

The traditional Hebrew term translated as “sin” is chattath; in Greek, the common word is hamartia. In both languages, the verb forms (Heb., chata; Gr., hamartano) mean “miss.” The sense is that of missing or not reaching a goal, way, mark, or right point. For humans, it is missing the mark of perfection. We are mentally bent toward evil. (Gen 6:5; 8:21), with a heart that is treacherous and unknowable (Jer. 17:9), with the natural desire to do bad.

So, with the partial quote, you gave of MacArthur, it is not enough for context. He may well have been talking about living in sin, which an unborn baby or an infant would not have done, not that of being a sinner. He is well aware that all are born sinners, missing the mark of perfection.

FULL CONTEXT BY MACARTHUR

It must be emphasized that the Bible does not explicitly answer the question of whether aborted babies in infants will receive a resurrection, so there is no reason for us to be dogmatic on the subject. This question may bring us to an almost infinite variety of questions. It seems best to shun speculation. What we can know for sure is this: The matter rests with God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ, both possessing loving-kindness and mercy. (Ps. 86:15) Undoubtedly, it is the Father’s deepest desire to defeat death by way of the resurrection. (Job 14:14-5) We can be sure that The Father and the Son will always do what is right. They will give us healing for the many injuries, and emotional hurts visited upon us by life in Satan’s wicked world as they lovingly “destroy the works of the devil.”​—1 John 3:8.

Lastly, I would add, you are not going to find any Christian, nor and leader within Christianity that believes precisely the same on all Bible doctrines, even the so-called salvation doctrines. The salvation doctrines all have several different views as well.

As Christians Should we have hope in a resurrection to restore what has been lost?

Being that we have a loving God who is the epitome of love, grace, and justice, we can be confident that he will do what is right. So, yes, we can have hope, and we should not let anyone deny us of that hope. The Scriptures also show that every person deserves the right to hear the good news, so as to make an informed decision on whether they will accept Jesus Christ. Unborn babies and infants who die will not have had that choice. We ate told at Acts 24:15, “having a hope in God which these men also themselves await that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” The unborn baby and the infant that has died would be that unrighteous who never had an opportunity to place his or her faith in Jesus Christ.
