Jesus’ Words: Judge

judgeHammer

And he has given him authority to judge everyone because he is the Son of Man. – John 5:27

 

Judgment, as always in Scripture, is on the basis of works…. This does not mean that salvation is on the basis of good works, for this very Gospel makes it plain over and over again that men enter eternal life when they believe on Jesus Christ. But the lives they live form the test of the faith they profess. This is the uniform testimony of Scripture. Salvation is by grace and it is received through faith. Judgment is based on men’s works.  –  Leon Morris

 

 

 

Did Jesus judge, or not?
