Many people wonder about the Last Judgment event and its meaning. In search of answers, those asking questions also turn to institutions that still claim to be based on the foundation of the gospel. This also includes the Protestant church. An answer from a supposed theologian and pastor recently demonstrated how devastating the answers to this question can be.

What happens as a result of the “Last Judgment”?

What is the judgment when a person dies? This question is rightly asked by many people who worry about what will happen when earthly existence comes to an end and that is guaranteed. It would actually be natural for every Christian to research the Bible’s answers to this question. But it seems far more convenient to turn to supposed theologians with this important question, in order to possibly take their explanations at face value. After all, anyone who has studied has to know it.

A question from an interested person about the Last Judgment

Questions

Important questions actually deserve competent answers

But the “large question and answer section” from the mouthpiece of the Protestant churches in Germany shows how the answer and the truth of such important questions are. An interested person asked at “evangelisch.de” how the “Last Judgment” would work if, according to the Protestant faith, people were not declared righteous by works, but “alone by the faith given by God”. The reader also asked whether believers would simply be acquitted, regardless of their actions and remorse. In contrast to the Catholic Church, the Protestant faith does not include a purgatory in which people are cleansed and made righteous from all the evil they have done during their life. Now the question remains open as to whether there is still a purification process.

The answer from a theological pastor

The answer to this question turns out to be a personal attitude of the author to these connections right from the start. She also poses as a pastor. The question about the “Last Judgment” is justified, because if man is justified by grace, this in turn raises the question about the meaning of such a judgment. What would this dish be good for if “everyone is absolved of everything anyway?”, according to the author. However, she could do a lot with the “Last Judgment in Christianity”. One only needs to look into the world to see all the injustice and pain that never heals. The author hopes that all this evil will not simply disappear from history and then be forgotten, but that a voice will finally be raised once again. For the author of this answer, the “Last Judgment” consists of longing for that once soaring and also respected voice.

Fantastic ideas about the Last Judgment

From a theological point of view, the Last Judgment is not primarily about the decision about each individual person, “but the world as a whole is the subject of this judgment,” says the author. In their view, this could be easily understood if one understood the Last Judgment in terms of the resurrection. This inequality prevailing in the world between God and his creation shows the profound asymmetry. With the resurrection, God freely decides to eliminate this inequality. The previously mortal human being will receive eternal life as a gift and the gap between God and human beings will also be eliminated. “God and man come to a certain extent on an equal footing,” says the pastor.

The idea of ​​the Last Judgment also fits into this context. God will become “all in all” and this will be depicted in drastic images. Theologically speaking, it is about the fact that this “becoming all-in-all” only allows people to be guided by God instead of anything else.

With such declarations it is appropriate to declare a new Protestantism against these views, which are still called Protestantism (the former Protestantism no longer exists – Info). Protestantism comes from “pro testare”, meaning “to stand up for a witness”. One can assume that this author and pastor also has a theological education behind her. After all, it also refers to “theological views” and serves as the media mouthpiece of the Protestant churches.

The term “Last Judgment” is about the only thing that comes close to what the Bible says. The “big rest” comes more from the stories of a J.R.R. Tolkien than even remotely conforming to the teachings of Scripture. The author has provided a prime example of what is on the agenda for the “Gospel” to be conveyed to people. The “universal reconciliation of a loving God” within a pantheistic environment, including the approximate deification of man himself.

This pastor also points out the now completely rotten term “theology” (Theos-God, Logos-Word, God’s Word) due to this unrecognizable distorted “interpretation” of the biblical content by the so-called scientists, who are steeped in ideology. With these stories, which are requested by insecure and searching people, these people are led directly to certain doom.

The Bible doesn’t know “universal reconciliation”

Holy Scripture

The Bible gives detailed answers

A “universal reconciliation” cannot and will not exist and the judgment affects every single human being as individually and comprehensively as if there were only this one human being for God. A pantheistic god, as described by the author as “all-in-all”, fulfills the violation of the first two commandments and thus leads to an unrecognized sin. But with the thesis of an all-encompassing grace, the worry about an inherent sin is eliminated in advance. Because God forgive all believers, no matter what they did. In principle, the “Last Judgment” is only a processing with a generated and “cleansing” bad conscience. Afterwards everything is fine. What a false teaching. Such a presentation would come as little surprise in a New Age or esoteric magazine, but this is the official publication of the evangelical churches and they claim to be based on the gospel.

Trust the Bible alone

If you are genuinely interested in the truth and want to get to the bottom of the Last Judgment, you simply cannot avoid studying the Bible on your own. The Bible is full of statements that there will by no means be a universal reconciliation. It is true that God loves all his creatures, including every single sinner, no matter how bad the sin, but God is just and His righteousness is eternal. Justice can mean salvation as well as retribution. “Deliver the just punishment.” Since every human being is a sinner, every human being deserves (absolute) death. This marks the righteousness of God, who formulated an immutable law, and also death for breaking one of the laws. Justice and grace are normally mutually exclusive. But with Jesus Christ, through whom everything visible and invisible was created, the only begotten Son of God, came the way of salvation for people. Jesus Christ took upon himself all the sins of mankind and died vicariously, as our Creator, the righteous death (righteousness). Therefore, God can pardon a man while maintaining justice. But this is by no means all-encompassing by watering can (righteousness of faith – Info)

The Last Judgment according to the Bible

The Bible is full of clear statements that this Last Judgment will not put a happy end to the previously separated wheat from the chaff. There is not a single statement that could point to an all-encompassing reconciliation.
Just a few examples
Romans 2:5-6:
“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:”

Revelation 11:18:
“And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.”

Perhaps the clearest statement against universal reconciliation is in Revelation 20:13-15 zu finden:
“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.”

The statements of the Bible are clear

The earth will not be alive for 1000 years

No man will be saved in his sins. Here the Bible makes a clear distinction between people who confessed their sins to God, repented of them, then refrained from committing them, gave their lives to Jesus Christ and bore his testimony, and people who simply continued living their previous (sinful) life, regardless of whether they “believed” in Jesus Christ or not. Jesus Christ himself did not come into this world to found a new action group as a simple, wise itinerant preacher, but to convict this world of sin and to save people on the basis of this knowledge(more Info).

In Matthew 7:21-23, Jesus Christ Himself gave a shattering answer for people who might also have believed in such unspeakable deceptions as in the above answer:
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

What is this “work iniquity.”? These are the people who carelessly “in faith” in God continue to break His commandments, possibly in good faith that there will be universal reconciliation anyway.

Overview of the Last Judgment process

When Jesus Christ returns, only those declared righteous will be resurrected, or the righteous who are still alive will be transformed to meet Jesus Christ in the air. The “rest” remains in the graves or dies, because what follows is a 1000-year-old ruined earth without any life on it(more Info).
Revelation 20:5-6:
“But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.”

After these 1000 years the final judgment will take place. The “rest” of the still dead humanity will rise again, receive the judgment and the justification and then finally (!) be wiped out.
Revelation 21:8:
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Does that sound like “all-forgiving grace”? No, not at all. For God’s righteousness is an everlasting righteousness (valid laws – Info), and His laws are to be kept, as inPsalm 119:142:
“Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.”

The Bible warns against such deceivers

The Bible warns against such false teachers

By the way, the Bible also has a warning about institutions that spread such theses in order to lead people directly to absolute nothingness. The Bible also explains the reason for such intentions, as in Revelation 18:2:
“And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.”
Information about the described Babylon

Unfortunately, great care must be taken when choosing the Bible. Because the Bible is no longer the same as the Bible. The modern variants have undergone a thorough modification (more Info). The Bible editions based on the so-called Textus Receptus are therefore still recommended. This is definitely true of the “good old” King James Version.
