Those who strive to:
God will render to every man according
to his deeds.

for every word.
- A good man out of the good treasure of
the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure
bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that
men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be
- But those things which proceed out of
the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of
the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts,
false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man: but
to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.
|We see today, though, that in order
to be judged by Jesus Christ according to Paul's gospel, we must follow

We will be accountable for our

secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
-But why dost thou judge thy brother? or
why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before
the judgment seat of Christ. For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord,
every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God. Let us not
therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man
put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way. I know,
and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself:
but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean.
5:10 - For we must all appear before the
judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in
his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
3:23-25 - And whatsoever ye do,
do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord
ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done:
and there is no respect of persons.

- Some men's sins are open beforehand, going
before to judgment; and some men they follow after. Likewise also the good
works of some are manifest beforehand; and they that are otherwise cannot

of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works,
And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more
grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work
is no more work.
Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the
faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might
be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for
by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it
is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are
his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath
before ordained that we should walk in them.
