Will Christians be judged?

No. Christians “hear” and “believe” and do not “come into judgment.”

Most certainly I tell you, he who hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life, and doesn’t come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life…

Don’t marvel at this, for the hour comes in which
all who are in the tombs will hear his voice, 
and will come out
those who have done good, to the resurrection of life;
and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of judgment.”

—Jesus, John 5:24,29

We will all stand before the judgment seat of God. 

For it has been written:
“I live, says the Lord,
that every knee will bow to Me,
and every tongue will confess to God.”

So then, each of us will give account concerning himself to God.

—Paul, Romans 14:10-12


…every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2:10,11

So we aspire to please Him, whether we are here in this body or away from it. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive his due for the things done in the body—whether good or bad.

2 Corinthians 5:9,10

For according to a man’s deeds He repays him;
according to a man’s ways He brings consequences.

Job 34:11

Everyone who confesses me before men,
I will also confess him before my Father
in heaven.

—Jesus, Matthew 10:32

When Christ comes,

He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and
will expose the motives of men’s hearts.

At that time each will receive his praise from God.

1 Corinthians 4:5

“Behold, I am coming quickly,
and my reward is with me,
to give to each as is his work.

Revelation 22:12


Rejoice, O young man, while you are young, and let your heart be glad in the days of your youth… Walk in the ways of your heart and in the sight of your eyes, but know that for all these things God will bring you to judgment.

Ecclesiastes 11:9

If we were judging ourselves,
we would not come under judgment.

But being judged by the Lord,
we are disciplined,
so that we should not be condemned
with the world.

1 Corinthians 11:31,32

If we are judging ourselves, we will not come under judgment.

We are Christian.

If not, you may be judged, and condemned, with the world.

Jesus said, “Your brother will rise again.” Martha said to him, “I know that—he will rise again in the resurrection, on the last day.”

John 11:24

The dead all come out at an hour, on the day of judgment, the last day.

“…and I have the same hope in God that they themselves cherish, that there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the wicked.”

Acts 24:15

The dead come out, those having done good to life, and evil to judgment.

So it is that a Christian doesn’t come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life according to Christ our Lord.
