Thomas on Judgment and Holiness

“What ever happened to the judgment of God in evangelical churches? What ever happened to the notion that for the redeemed of the Lord, there will be a judgment according to works, that we must give an account of all the deeds that we’ve done in the body, and that there are rewards in the new heaven and new earth. Somehow, in the past twenty or thirty years, the idea of egalitarianism has crept into the evangelical church’s concept of the new heaven and the new earth. But that is not what the New Testament seems to be teaching here. One of the motivations for holiness is that we must give an account, that a day of reckoning is coming.”
