Unbelievers Will Be Judged Guilty

Ecclesiastes 7:20 For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.

There is not one person who lives his whole life without sin.

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

We are all sinners; we are all less than perfect; no one measures up to God's standard..

Galatians 3:22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.

The Bible declares that we are all sinners, but God has promised us that all those who believe in Jesus Christ will receive forgiveness of sin.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Sin brings death and judgment from God, but God has offered us a free gift of forgiveness of sin and eternal life in Jesus Christ.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

God the Father gave His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for sinners because He loved us. The offer of forgiveness of sins and eternal life is given to everyone; we only need to believe in Jesus Christ in order to receive it.

John 3:17-18 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

All who believe in Jesus Christ will not be judged because Jesus Christ has taken our judgment upon Himself. He took our sins upon Himself when He died on the cross for us. All people who don't believe in Jesus Christ will be judged and have already been declared guilty before God; furthermore, they must pay the penalty for their sin, and that penalty is death and eternal hell.

John 5:22-24 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

The person who honors Jesus Christ by believing in Him, honors the Father. The believer receives forgiveness of sin and eternal life; therefore, he does not come into judgement. The person who rejects Jesus Christ not only dishonors the Son of God, but he also dishonors God the Father; therefore, he does not receive forgiveness of sin and he must stand before the Judge who is none other than Jesus Christ, the One he rejected.

John 12:47-48 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

Jesus Christ came to make atonement for our sins and to offer us forgiveness of sins. The offer is extended to everyone who will believe in Him. If a person does not believe His words, that person does not believe in Him and is still in his sins; therefore, a person condemns himself when he rejects the words of Christ.

Acts 10:42-43 And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead. To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.

Jesus Christ was appointed by God to be the Judge of the living and the dead. He will judge all people for their sins and no one will escape His judgment. Those who believe in Him will not be judged because their sins are forgiven and as far as God is concerned they have no sins. Those who do not believe in Him will be judged for their sins because their sins are not forgiven; their sins remain.

Hebrews 9:27-28 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Jesus Christ was offered as a sacrifice for our sins, once and for all, to do away with sin for all those who will believe in Him. When He comes back to this earth, there will be no mention of sin for all those who believe in Him, but there will be judgement for all those who reject Him.

Acts 17:30-31 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

All those who reject Jesus Christ are left without any defense, because God has given us proof that Jesus Christ is the Savior by raising Him from the dead. No one will be able to claim ignorance, because the resurrection is proof that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be. The person who rejects Jesus Christ will be judged by the very one he rejects.

Romans 2:5-8 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; Who will render to every man according to his deeds: To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,

God is not angry with the person who believes in Jesus Christ, but He is very angry with the person who rejects Him. Furthermore, those who reject Jesus Christ, because they do not want to submit to Him, will receive the wrath of God on the day of judgement and no one will be able to stand against His wrath.

Psalms 1:5-6 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

God has declared men to be righteous when they believe in Jesus Christ; He has also declared the unbeliever to be unrighteous. The righteous will enter into the presence of God where they will live forever; the unrighteous will be judged and will never enter into the presence of God.

Revelations 20:11-15 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

No one will be able to escape the great white throne judgement; there will be no place to hide and no way to avoid it. There will be one Judge and no jury, and there will be no lawyers and no arguments allowed. A person will be judged according to what is written in the record books and the judgement will be swift and final, with no appeals, no reversals, no probation, and no pardons.

Everyone who believes in Jesus Christ has their name written in the book of life, but everyone who does not believe in Jesus Christ does not have their name written in the book of life. The people who have their names written in the book of life will not be judged, but instead they will receive honor and glory and eternal happiness in the presence of God forever.

There will also be record books in which are written all the evil deeds that the unbelievers have ever done. There will be no mistakes made, no one will be judged unjustly and no will be let off. God has been keeping a complete and perfect record of every sin that every unbeliever has ever done; nothing will be forgotten and nothing will be overlooked.

In the final analysis, everyone who believes in Jesus Christ will escape judgement because their name is written in the book of life, and everyone who does not believe in Jesus Christ will be judged and found guilty because their name is not written in the book of life.

All those whose names are not written in the book of life will be thrown into the lake of fire, and the sentence will be eternal damnation.
