Beta 02(b)                SIN AND JUDGEMENT

Sin is a bit like a car with faulty steering. However much you want to go straight, it is always pulling to one side. If something isn't done about it you will end up with serious consequences - for you and maybe for others!

Have you ever watched a film/video/DVD or looked at a picture, or have you ever said something you know you should not have said, or failed to help someone you know you should have, or done some deed you know you should not have done?                Yes / No

WHAT DO YOU THINK THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT IS?

Read Mark 12:28-30, then fill in the gaps below.

`Love the _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ with all your _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ and with all _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

and with _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ and with _ _ _ _  _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ '

IN OTHER WORDS, LOVE GOD WITH EVERY THING YOU'VE GOT!

Have you ever done that?      Yes / No                     All the time?         Yes / No

What about the commandment in the next verse?  (Verse 31)      Yes / No

 

SIN CAN SEPARATE YOU FROM GOD - FOREVER

Read Revelation 20:11-15. This is the judgement of those who are not Christians - and it is not a pleasant one!

What does 2 Corinthians 5:10 say we must do? ....................................................................................

.........................................................................................................................................................

This judgement Christians will face - not as to whether they will be admitted into heaven - but what rewards they will be given for faithfulness to Christ’s commands.

The judgement of the `White Throne' in Revelation 20:11 is one of eternal death - being separated from God forever.

The appearing at the seat of Christ (the ‘Bema’ seat) in 2 Corinthians 5:10, is to hear the Lord judge Christians as how they have lived since believing.
