Question

Do bastards (illegitimate people) go to hell?

I've been told that a child birthed out of wedlock shall not go to Heaven.

Deu 23:2 A bastard shall not enter into the assembly of Jehovah; even to the tenth generation shall none of his enter into the assembly of Jehovah.

Deu 23:3 An Ammonite or a Moabite shall not enter into the assembly of Jehovah; even to the tenth generation shall none belonging to them enter into the assembly of Jehovah for ever:

(ASV)

Is this true?

Is there any hope for illegitimate children?

Thank you in advance

That text is not talking about Heaven or Hell.

The meaning is that at that particular time in ancient Israel Children born from incest or by illegitimate means could not hold Public Office (civil positions of authority).

One goes to hell only if they reject salvation through Jesus Christ.

No, because they don't have souls.

You should worry about your life now instead of what will happen when you die.

Well if that's the case, I'll keep you company, babes.

Most kids these days are born out of marriage.

Most children born now are bastards, it means heaven will be empty.
