It is generally believed that there will be a
time in the future when all people will stand
before God and be judged for their sins. Is this
according to the Bible?
Answer: This is universally believed that man will be
saved or lost by his works. This is most
unscriptural, and it is wrong. There are two
distinct judgment days for sin. One is past, it
took place at the cross. "Now is the judgment of
this world: now shall the prince of this world
be cast out."
John 12:31. Jesus is talking about going to
the cross. God laid our iniquities on Him.
Isaiah 53:6. He died for our sins.
1 Corinthians 15:3. To all of those who
accept Him, they are forgiven and will never be
judged for their sins. "...shall not come into
John 5:24. "No condemnation (judgment). (Romans
8:1). All those who do not trust Him as
their Saviour from sin, will stand before the
great white throne and be judged. (Revelation
20:11-15). This will be to determine their
just degree of punishment in hell. My judgment
day is past. I have been forgiven. God said,
"And their sins and iniquities will I remember
Hebrews 10:17. This is true of every
born-again Christian. This is the blessedness of
sins forgiven. (Psalms
Romans 4:6). In view of the finished work by
Christ at Calvary, I must say that a general
judgment is just another traditional heresy
which gullibly people believe.
If you are not a Christian, I would exhort you
kindly to sincerely repent of your sins and
receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ as your
Saviour from sin, and your Saviour from a
judgment. This is the Bible's way of salvation.
There is no other. Jesus said, "I am THE WAY,
the TRUTH and the LIFE: NO MAN cometh unto the
Father, but by me."
