Oh I'm certain of it too - if God were truly JUST, then NONE of us would stand - it's God's MERCY in Christ that we need - are you certain of THAT?!?One thing I am certain of is God's judgment. It will always be just...always.
But we don't EARN it! It's the gracious outworking of all that GOD has worked in and through believers! "Without me you can do NOTHING" says King Jesus.Those who seek glory and honor will receive eternal life and those that don't won't.
1. krima (κρίμα, 2917) denotes (a) “the sentence pronounced, a verdict, a condemnation, the decision resulting from an investigation,” e.g., Mark 12:40; Luke 23:40; 1 Tim. 3:6; Jude 4; (b) “the process of judgment leading to a decision,” 1 Pet. 4:17 (“judgment”)
OK - what's your understanding of the difference between krima and krisis?
Is it not the visible church, made up of sheep and goats, wise and foolish builders/virgins, good and bad fish/servants, wheat and tares?House of God is exactly what it is. You could say that it is the "temple" of the body. Since Peter is speaking of suffering.
