Judgment Day

In 2 Corinthians 5:10 Paul talks about standing before the judgment seat of Christ. Does judgment day undo the good news of our adoption in Christ? How should we understand judgment in light of the reformation the Holy Spirit is carrying out in our understanding of the gospel?

  2. Great message, Pastor Jonathan! What is truly being judged is not our status in God’s heart, but rather, our beliefs! And, you know, sometimes I mix a little straw and wood with the gold that I have received from God! I’d like to get rid of that now, but I know He will take care of all of it ultimately! Thank You, Father! Another thing: I appreciate your making the analogy of our own family life in trying to understand God – He has given us SO MANY word pictures using family life to help us to understand Him (the Prodigal Father, Jesus, our elder brother, etc). Sadly, I have friends who LOVE their own children immensely, but think God is DIFFERENT, somehow ABOVE that human kind of thing. Anyway, thanks for the message.

  3. Thanks, Jerome, for listening and for offering encouragement. I really resonate with what you’re saying about the way we love our family but think God is different. If a human father treated his kids the way some people think the heavenly Father treats us we’d call social services and have him arrested!

  4. I appreciated your message, Jonathan. The angry God has been so engrained into our Christian culture over the past couple centuries (and especially the past few decades) that it is hard to even grasp the Good News in the message. People seem to prefer a God who is going to “burn-up those bad people.” Thanks for clearing up the picture a bit.

  5. Thanks for the encouraging feedback, Glen! Just checked out your church website ( and loved the notes on your baptism sermon!

  6. OUTSTANDING!! Keep preaching the truth it is setting us Free!

  7. Thanks for the encouragement!
