The Judgement of God, Part 1.

Can God legitimately judge all mankind fairly without being impartial? Yes, I believe that God can judge mankind fairly.

First of all, to be a judge one must be qualified to satisfy a requirement or meet a specified level of competence, also weigh the evidence or infraction before applying judgment or sentencing.

According to (Romans 2:11) God does not love some people more than others and God dose not show favoritism. Now that’s fair and equal treatment according to God’s word. (John 3:16) states that God so loved the world he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him( the son of God) shall not perish but have eternal life.

Personally, I believe in the total depravity of man, and that man is incapable of performing any work that would change his standing with God. (Roman 3:10) states there are no one righteous no not one. According to (John 14:6) Jesus is the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the father except through him.

My questions is, do all mankind go to hell if they do not confess Jesus as their lord and savior, and what about the people who lived long ago who never heard of Jesus?

This will be continued in Part 2 of the discussion.

Well, Sharon,
not to be flip, but if you are going to continue this later, do you want any comments?

I can see you are Calvinistic in your theology. So, we will butt heads.

Matthew 25:31-46 indicates there will be a judgement that all men will face at God's appointed time. All of those about to be judged do call Jesus 'Lord'. However, as Jesus has stated (recorded in Matthew 7), not everyone who says to Him, Lord, Lord, will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. And, Hebrews 12:14 states "without holiness, noone will see the Lord".

What Jesus is looking for is the signature of God's family. That would be "love" as Jesus stated, all of the prophets and the commandments hang on the command to love God and others (reference Lev. 19:18). Leviticus 19:18 is a personal challenge. It is not a part of the law that passes away. For Jesus says, "Love one another. As I have loved you, so must you love one another. By this all men will know you are my disciples if you have love for one another".

To bring us back to my point in Matthew 25, the difference for those whom Jesus grants the inheritance and those who receive eternal condemnation is love.

Calvinism does not take into account that salvation is a means to having a relationship with God made available. Holiness (referenced earlier in Heb. 12:14) is to live according to the standard God has set for us, not the world's standard. And, that standard is to be atoned for and walk in the spirit of love. Both are necessary to enter the kingdom of Heaven.

Hey, thanks for coming by and introducing yourself. It's great to make new blog acquaintances. Yours is very thoughtful and challenging. Most people think of a judge as a negative, but I think God can be a good judge the way he can exercise holy anger without being 'out of control' in his anger.

Hope to see you around again. God bless and happy blogging!

The judgment of God Almighty is alive and well in the earth. There are people in the earth who are dead D-E-A-D! inside their beings, they don't know right from wrong. They live in a foreign world/realm. They do not know right from wrong, their consciences are seared and twisted like nobody's business. They don't care about nobody else except satan the god they serve and what he wants them to do. They are raggedy, nasty, tore-up people, they don't obey the laws of the land, so they are definetly not going to obey God Almighty. They call people in the earth who know right from wrong and who have a conscience "self-righteous", no, we are NOT you PEOPLE, wicked sick pups pups We still have our consciences! and our right minds that the great creator Jehovah Bara Jesus Christ gave us from the start. I know of 3 people in the earth who are dead inside and they live by their own rules, and God is judging them daily and angry with them. Two will be dead before our savior Jesus Christ returns and the other, at the time of the rapture, because the wicked don't live long (Proverbs 10:27). Bottom line, you better live right and get on board with Jesus Christ our savior's way of doing things or else "6 foot under you go!!" PERIOD!!!!!
