359. How are people judged by God?
By their words and deeds.
For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words
thou shalt be condemned. Matthew 12:37
He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest
thou? And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all
thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with
all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. And he said unto him, Thou
hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live. Luke 10:26-28
And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the
resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the
resurrection of damnation. John 5:29
By their beliefs (and being born again).
He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that
believeth not shall be damned. Mark 16:16
Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. John 3:3
He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that
believeth not is condemned already .... He that believeth on the Son
hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see
life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. John 3:18, 36
