THE FREEWILL CHICK S WORRIED ABOUT THE JUDGMENT OF GOD.

STACY SAID:
Who will stand before the judgment seat of Christ?

MY REPLY:
STACY— CAN’T “JUDGMENT” BE A WELCOMED THING? “JUDGE THE WIDOWS AND THE FATHERLESS” SAYS ONE VERSE. CAN’T IT BE SOMETHING WE’RE GRATEFUL FOR? Yours, One cup.

STACY SAID:
I asked you if every person will be judged at the judgment seat of Christ? Yes or no. Thanks! 🙂

MY REPLY:
I don’t know. But I do know He became sin on our behalf. He died for us. He died for our sin. But I’m a little foggy on this “judgment seat” you mentioned.

STACY SAID:
There are two judgments. The judgment seat of Christ/dias (and) The great white throne. I ask if ALL will be appear at the judgment mentioned in 2 Corinthians 5:10

MY REPLY:
Kiss… I looked at the verse just moments ago. Who are “the all” that must appear??? Is it all humanity, or all the believers??

If it is all humanity, fine… if it is all believers, fine… but you asked the question as if this verse… this event… nullifies the work of God in the cross of Christ. Say it isn’t so.

STACY SAID:
Doesn’t all always mean all? Or does all mean all only when it supports your religious practices?

MY REPLY:
“All” is generally defined by the context of the sentence, not by who the sentence is written to. For example, it says “all die” written TO the Corinthians… so just because Paul wrote it TO those in Corinth… does not mean ONLY Corinthians die. See, it’s the ALL of the context. “All die” doesn’t mean those who are “snatched away” will die.

PLEASE NOTE: When Paul uses the word “ALL” regarding justification, reconcilation, etc… he goes to great lengths to make sure we know all means all…. “For even as in Adam all die, so in Christ shall all be made alive.” (I Cor 15:20-28)
“For as one sin results in condemnation for all, so one righteous act results in justification for all” (Romans 5:18)
All created in Christ, all reconcile through the blood of the cross.” (Col 1:16-20)
So, you’re right little one, “all” does not necessarily mean “all”… it’s the “all” of the context.
But… just because the writer wrote TO a given people, it does not limit “the all” to be just those people.

Now regarding this “judgment seat of Christ“… It may be all humanity or it may mean all the believers will appear there… but I see no reason to think this event nullifies God’s love for His creation and no reason to think it nullifies God’s work in the cross of Christ.
And why would the word “judgment” mean something horrible is about to happen like endless hell, or some such?
Shouldn’t we trust the judgments of God?
After all, He is the creator of all, and He is working all things after the council of His will. (Eph 1:11)
And… get this… All is out of Him, through Him, and for Him. (Romans 11:36)
