The Judgment Dogma
One of the primary dogmas in Christendom that is almost
universal is that in the "last days" we will come before the mysterious
judgment of God, where we may not even understand the criteria used. At that
time with our fate determined before all the universe, we will be Heaven or
Hell bound. Given this, it became fashionable and necessary in the thinking
and literature to accept that the Salvation offered by Jesus meant being
delivered from the judgment of sin and being made safe to be actually bound
for Heaven at some later time after being resurrected. This is all hugely wrong; a
The Present Judgment
The present judgment on us, the judgment of death, is already
automatic and cannot be further imposed, but can only be avoided. As in, “You will just die in your sins,

their original sin and separation from the rest of the unfallen humans in the universe.

Is the Creator capable of hate? Oh, yes! He hates the idea of losing
andy of his children in the universe that he designed and started. Is the
Father in the business of losing? Losing any of the brothers in the
universe of which the Father entity sustains and controls? Oh, no! How could
the citizens of the universe live throughout all eternity knowing that some
of their brothers of infinite value were lost? There are ALWAYS options to
The Future Judgment
The future judgment takes place in the next age, the age of justice,
where all will be revealed and made plain without volition to believe being
involved. It will actually be the judgment of God by his children, not the
judgment of the children by God. What will our judgment be of mercy that
endures forever? For purely good intentions? For love that cannot be
[*] John 8:21-30. It is most noteworthy that when
Jesus used the terms "believe", "faith" or "belief", he was always meaning belief of the
truth, not something untrue or partially true. One CANNOT believe, by his
definition of the word, unless one has sought the truth and found it.
