This
is
about
Judgment Questions: • • • How
do
we
feel
about
the
fact
that
there
is
an
ultimate
judgment? Why
is
this
the
hardest
pill
to
swallow
about
the
God
proclaimed
in
the
Bible? This
pictures
God’s
judgment
as
done…
image
of
harvest
depicts
two
 judgments,
good
and
evil…



What
would
it
be
like
if
God
didn’t
judge?

Images
of
hell…
what
are
they? o What
do
these
images
say
about
the
character
and
nature
of
God? o What
we
know
of
hell
from
Scriptures. o What
we
might
guess
from
Scriptures.

Closing • • Perspective From
light
to
dark o Christ
is
judge o What
do
we
know
about
who
He
is o Can
we
trust
Him?
