Is God Just?

He will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury. There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek, but glory and honor and peace for everyone who does good, the Jew first and also the Greek. For God shows no partiality…. (Rm.2:1-16)

God’s anger toward those who ignore His commands burnt on the cross of Calvary. Those who hide behind that cross will be spared from the heat of that wrath when it will burn for the last time.

God is the Creator and owner

God is just and fair in judging the wicked because He is the Creator and owner of the whole creation. He has absolute right and authority over all that he has made. He loved mankind, the crown of His creation, for whom everything else were made. He gave them freedom but wanted them to willingly keep His instructions. But man decided to chose otherwise and landed in the resultant disarray of wickedness and sin. He had laid down the rules of the game right in the beginning itself and only the mankind is to blame.

God the Son is the Judge and the Penalized

As the Law giver, God is the judge. He will judge everyone according to what they have done while alive. The one question around which the judgment will revolve is “What did you do with my Son Jesus?” The answer to this simple question will determine the destiny of mankind. Bible says, “If you belong to Christ Jesus, you won’t be punished” (Rom.8:1). The Bible also says that Jesus Christ is coming back as the Judge. In order to save the criminal, the righteous judge Himself paid the penalty. Now all who wish to avail the benefit can do so by believing on Jesus. Judgment is for not accepting the provision God has made through the death of His dear Son, and attempting to reach heaven through their own ways.
