|What does the Bible say
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of
For God shall bring every work into judgment,
with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
For there is nothing covered, that shall
not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.
Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in
darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear
in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.
Marvel not at this: for the hour is
coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
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.
But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother?
for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and
every tongue shall confess to God.
So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
2 Cor 5:10
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may
receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it
be good or bad.
