Careless Words & Judgement

Careless Words
Thursday, June 12th, 2014


  • Forgiveness
  • Judgment
  • Salvation
  • Sin

Q. Last night in our Bible study, we talked about judgment which I have no problems with at all.  In regard to it, when we are faithful to confess our sins to God (say on a daily basis) for things we know are wrong such as envy, inappropriate words, hurtful actions, etc, will we be judged on them again when we see the Lord in the future?   Since the Bible says we will be judged by every word or action, does this imply we are forgiven now but will be judged later or will God remove our transgressions as far as East is from West?


A.  Matt. 12:36-37 says,
“But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”
Even a sin as “small” as a careless word will be remembered and mankind will have to give account for them all. Obviously one person cannot be both acquitted and condemned, so the Lord was saying it’ll be one or the other.  Some will be acquitted by having agreed to let the Lord’s death serve as payment in full for their sins.  Since Jesus was already punished for them, God’s justice has been served and He cannot also punish us.
Others will be condemned because they denied the Lord and refused to let His death pay for their sins. That means they’ve agreed to pay for them personally. So by our words we will either receive the Lord’s pardon and  be acquitted or reject His pardon and be condemned. But no one will be acquitted now and condemned later.

When Will We Be Judged?

[size=32]Friday, December 21st, 2012[/size]


  • Judgment

Q.  From studying Matthew 12:36 seems to me that Jesus was referring to all the “empty words” (idle and careless) that were ever spoken from both believers and unbelievers.  Unbelievers will be judged for their words at the Great White Throne Judgement when it mentions in Rev. 20:12 that certain “books were opened.” Since the Matthew 12 verse is also for believers, when will this take place?


A.  From Matt. 12:25 to the end of the chapter, Jesus was talking directly to the Pharisees who had just accused Him of performing miracles by the power of Satan. This is confirmed in Matt. 12:34.  We know that unbelievers will be judged at the Great White Throne (Rev. 20:11-15) but there is no such judgment for believers.  All our sins were forgiven at the cross and washed away in the blood of Jesus. From God’s perspective we’re as righteous as He is. Romans 14:12, 2 Cor. 5:10, and others are all part of the Bema Seat judgment spoken of in 1 Cor. 3:10-15, where our qualification for rewards will be determined.

Judgement Day

Wednesday, June 4th, 2008


  • Millennium
  • Rapture

Q. I know that Hebrews 9:27 says  “man is destined to die once and after that to face judgment”.  Does that mean people are judged right after they die, or does it refer to the “The Day of Judgment” where everyone will be judged at once?


A. There are three days mentioned in the Bible that can be considered judgment days. 1 Cor. 3:10-15 describes the judgment of the Church, known as the Bema Seat judgment. Most scholars believe it takes place in Heaven right after the Rapture.  Everyone there will be saved, so it’s only for the purpose of awarding crowns.  This is the only judgment the Church will face.
In Matt. 24:45 thru Matt. 25:46 Jesus spoke of judgments that will take place on Earth after He returns. These judgments involve  believers and unbelievers who survive the Great Tribulation. Those who are found to be believers will be welcomed into the kingdom to help re-populate the Earth while unbelievers will be sent to the place of eternal punishment.
Rev. 20:11-15 describes the Great White Throne judgment at the end of the Millennium. It’s for the unsaved dead from all ages and will result in their transfer from their temporary confinement in Hell to the Lake of Fire.

I kept coming back to this question posted On GraceThruFaith. JK simply answers what I wondered about the Great White Throne Judgement. Believers will not be judged at the GWTJ but the unbelievers who have rejected Christ's Gift of Salvation.
