Can Short People Go To Heaven

 Short People suffer so much in the hands of others who think their stature equates inabilities. People often ask can short people go to heaven? Why not?

Can short people go to heaven? 

Most people think that because someone is short, they can't do lots of things tall people can and believe they are destined for nothing good but hardships. What does the bible say about being short?

Can short people go to heaven


This isn't always the case. Like everyone else short people can go to heaven if they follow Jesus Christ truly and live according to His teachings and doctrines. How tall do you have to be to go to heaven? There isn't a mention of this in the bible nor is being short a sin in Islam.


The gospel of Jesus Christ offers forgiveness and redemption to all who will accept it, whether short or tall. 



Short people are in Heaven

The Bible made us believe that everyone is welcomed in heaven no matter their height. 


In Matthew, it says: "Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in" (Matthew 25:34-35). 


This passage clearly shows God welcomes everyone to his kingdom not minding size or appearance.


Short people in the bible

Can short people go to heaven

The Bible is full of short people and their exploits. 


David was one of the most famous short people in the Bible,  a shepherd boy 5'3" in height who was little but did big things for God. 


Abraham 5'9" tall, is another short man in the Bible.  He and David were influential despite their short stature. 


Abraham founded Judaism, and David the first king Israel produced. Both men are held up as examples of faith and courage in the Bible.


Gideon, a shepherd boy, is another short person recorded in the bible. 


He led an army that conquered the Midianites. Even Jesus the Messiah was a short person, historians say he was barely five feet tall.


Great prophets, like Elijah and Elisha and other brave soldiers, like Benaiah and Joab.


Also wise teachers like Ezekiel and Daniel were short people. 

Moses who led Israelites out of Egypt to the promised land was not the tallest of men. 


Short people have always been important instruments of God in the Bible and this shows God can use anybody no matter how small they appear.



Were people looked down on in the Bible because they were short?

In the Bible, there are a few people who were also looked down on because of their short stature. 


An example is David who was considered unfit to face Goliath a giant  because of his small size. 


David, later killed Goliath and earned hero status not minding he was smaller than Goliath. 


This goes further to show size doesn't matter, but what's on the inside that truly counts.



Yes, Short people can go to Heaven.

God loves everyone, regardless of how tall or short you are. Who can go to heaven and who will not go to heaven isn't judged on height.


Humans tend to judge others based on their physique but God doesn't see things differently. 

He sees the heart, and loves everyone equally. Your height shouldn't discourage you from pursuing a deep relationship with God. His arms are always open for all. 


Why do you think short people can't go to heaven?


Maybe because you mistake being short for not being virtuous and good or think being short means you can't keep a close relationship with God your creator. 


You are actually wrong. Many short people out there are very loving and kind and have a very strong bond with God.


 There is no logical reason why short people can't go to heaven, just like there is no reason at all why tall people can't go to heaven.


Who will enter heaven? 



Short people going  to Heaven will depend on a person's individual faith and communion with God. 


Those religionists and denominations who believe that only people of certain heights are eligible for salvation are liars. 


Anyone regardless of height, stature or looks can be saved through having faith in Jesus.


The relationship matters most not height, followed by willingness to follow Jesus Christ as personal lord and savior.


 The Bible in John 3:16 and Romans 10:9-10 clearly explains that anyone, no matter race or height, can be saved through believing in Jesus. 


What is the height of Jesus?

The Bible doesn't give us an exact measurement of Jesus' height and no archaeological evidence to say his height exactly, may be because it wasn't important.


Goliath was the tallest man of his time being over 9 feet tall but wasn't as impactful as Jesus who was considered not too tall. 


Being shorter didn't make him less loved or unworthy like many misconstrue people  with short stature today. 


What determines if we go to heaven?

Many beliefs exist about what qualifies someone for heaven. 


People say it is based entirely on how good you are, while some believe it is by faith in God. 


Others think who will make heaven has been decided by God before creation. 


No matter what we feel qualifies us to go to heaven, the most important thing is to live a life that is pleasing to Him.


 Obey His commandments and be a faithful servant, such that when we die, we will be with Him in heaven.


Know it that short people deserve heaven as well as tall people, they deserve love too and their lives matter. 


If anyone asks you the question "can short people go to heaven?" look them in the face and tell them yes.
