The Fairness of God

The Fairness of God

God will judge everyone exactly the same—no matter what race, what gender, what economic level, what education level, no matter whatever. He will judge everyone exactly the same. 
And I can demonstrate exactly how He will do that. 
He has said that His eyes roam the earth to see who seeks Him, and He honors those who do. And He has said that all have committed crimes against Him, and that those crimes will be punished. 
Who here can say that God will say he or she has never lied?
Who here can say that God will say he or she has never taken something that did not belong to them, has never stolen?
Who here can say that God will say he or she has never lusted for sex with someone not their spouse?
Who here can say that God will say he or she has never broken the Sabbath day worship?
Who here can say that God will say he or she has always honored their parents, has never disobeyed their parents?
Who here can say that God will say he or she has always loved God with all their heart, mind, and strength?
Who here can say that God will say he or she has always loved their neighbor as their self?
Who here can say that God will say he or she has always obeyed all of the Ten Commandments, and the two greatest commandments?
The answer, according to God, is no one except Jesus, proven to be His Son. That means that all the crimes against God, all of what the Bible says are sins, are acts that fall short of God’s expectations, and will one way or another be punished. They will be punished either by that person being cast justly into hell, or they will be punished by Jesus’ crucifixion and death on the cross. That is why 2 John 2:2 says, “His offering for sin is for all the sins of all the world.” And 2 Corinthians 5:21 says, “God made Him to be sin, who knew no sin, that we might become the righteousness of God through Christ Jesus.” That’s the bargain of the Bible. And it is available to every person.  It is available, right this moment, to you.  Will you repent and ask for His forgiveness, and allow His death on the cross pay the punishment for your sins?
What about the person who never hears about Jesus? Jesus answered that in His parable of the Pharisee and the tax collector. The Pharisee relied on the good works he has done. The tax collector humbled himself and said, “God, be merciful to me a sinner!”
He knew nothing about Jesus, but Jesus said that man went down to his house in right standing with God. 
Are you in right standing with God? I am, because I repented, and asked for forgiveness. You can be in right standing with God, too, if you repent and ask for forgiveness. Don’t wait!
