YOU MAY ASK “WON’T GOD JUST OVERLOOK MY SINS, AFTER ALL, HE IS GOOD AND FORGIVING?”
GOD IS THE HOLY AND JUST JUDGE OF ALL THE UNIVERSE
“Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; mercy and truth go before Your face.” (Psalm 89:14)
In civil law, a good judge must punish crime. If he turns a blind eye to injustice, then he is corrupt and he himself should be punished. How could God punish the devil and his demons for what they have done to mankind, if God Himself were a corrupt Judge?
. This is the teaching of the Bible—that God will “by no means clear the guilty.” He “will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.”
The truth is, we have all “sinned” many times, and God has seen our every thought, word, and deed. If He is going to bring all of our sins out as evidence of our guilt on the Day of Judgment, we will all be found to be guilty. Our conscience has shown us right from wrong; we will be without excuse. God will give us justice, and Hell will be the place of our eternal punishment. “For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known.”
