The Good Person Test
Your Answer: I am guilty but God forgives me.
Whether in a civil court or when you face judgment by God, if you break the law there is a penalty that must be paid.
Imagine that ten years ago someone robbed, tortured, raped and killed your mother. Now that person is standing before a judge and they say,
"Judge, you are a kind, loving and forgiving person. You are a good judge. You will forgive me and let me go free."
Will the judge let them go free? Would justice be served if that person was set free?
No. If the judge is a good judge, the judge will not set them free. They must pay the penalty for what they did.
God, who is perfectly good and just, can not just let you go free. There must be justice. The penalty must be paid. That means you are heading for hell. You've admitted you've broken God's laws. That's very serious and the penalty must be paid. If you do the crime (and you did), you must pay the time (eternity in hell).
The penalty is death (hell).
God is good, much more so than a human judge.
God is just. His justice is perfect. That means that God can not just let someone who has broken His law go without paying the penalty for what they have done
wrong. There must be justice.
What is justice?
If you have broken any of God's laws, then you must pay the penalty for breaking his laws. That is justice.
there is a way justice can be served
and you can be forgiven.
