Chris's 1 Peter Chapter 4 comment on 7/04/2020, 6:00pm...

Tim, I believe you're correct in your understanding. The fact that believers will partake at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb (Rev 19:8-9) & also stand at the Judgement Seat of Christ is proof enough that their sins were fully dealt with while on Earth & they have been 'accepted in the beloved', being found spotless & holy to stand before His Presence.

Yet, it is incumbent on every believer to confess & turn away from every known sin while on Earth, not with lip service, but from a heart constrained by the Spirit & from one who longs to please his Lord in every area of his life. There are many 'Christians' going into confessionals as a routine or believing that God overlooks their continual sin by virtue of Christ's death, who sadly are impostors & are ignorant of the Truth & do despite to Christ's sacrifice.

The question is: what are the 'works' that are judged when we stand before Him in eternity? What have we built upon that foundation of Christ? Will it only be the works of visible ministry & the preaching of the Gospel amongst the unreached, or will it also include the unseen labours that have blessed humanity with Christ's Love or even shaken Heaven's Gates with their fervent prayers? But for those whose works will be burned, whose lives have produced nothing of worth, they will still be saved "yet so as by fire".

Dear Tim,

2 Corinthians 5:10 seems to say we will be judged for our sins.

And 1 John 1:6-10 says Christians sin, but we need to confess them and if we claim we don't sin then we accuse Jesus of being a liar and the word isn't in us.

So, because of these scriptures I believe we will be judged for our sins. We need to try hard to avoid sin. There's currently some fake news spreading around claiming that it's ok for Christians to sin and be of the world, but that info doesn't come from God. Matthew 10:28, Matthew 5:48, Hebrews 10:26.

God bless...
