What does GCJ believe about THE JUDGEMENT? Essentially, we believe the same as GCI does, as summarized in their statement, which is posted below:
- God judges all humans through Jesus Christ as those who belong to God through him. Therefore, all humans are, in spite of themselves, loved, forgiven, and included in Jesus Christ, who is their Lord and Savior. God’s love will never cease or diminish even for those who, denying the reality of who they are in him, refuse his love and consign themselves to hell; they will not enjoy the fruit of his salvation but rather will experience his love as wrath. God disciplines those he loves so that they will return to him and live; he stands at the door and knocks, urging them to open the door to his everlasting love. God’s judgment in Christ means the ultimate end of evil and the renewal of the earth and all creation.
Our belief is based on a number of passages in the Bible, including the ones listed below:
- (Acts 24:15; John 5:28-29; John 3:17; Romans 5:6; Colossians 1:20; 1 Timothy 2:3-6; 2 Peter 3:9; Romans 5:15-18; Acts 10:43; John 12:32; 1 Corinthians 15:22-28; Hebrews 12:6; Ephesians 1:10; Revelation 3:19-20)
