Non-Judgment Day

“He has appointed a day
In the which he will
Judge the World
In righteousness.R

Romans 16:20

nojudgement-bumpersticker A car at a stoplight had a bumper sticker that simply said 'Non-Judgment Day Is Coming.' As this fellow pulled away it got me thinking, ‘How exactly can an event be coming that is NOT coming?’ But then pondering more about it, depending on your point of view this statement could be entirely correct!

From the perspective of many, a day of judgment is definitely NOT coming. If there is no god, then it makes perfect sense to be free to live life with impunity without any repercussions for your actions. You are free to 'eat, drink, and be merry.' because there are no limits or restrictions on life except the ones you set.

On the other hand, the Bible says something diametrically opposed to that - but with a hopeful twist! While Romans 16:20 says that such a day is indeed coming, here’s the thing – Judgment Day is coming for some but not everyone. Here is why...

While God is a God of Love, He is also a God of Justice. While we will all cross the threshold of mortality into eternity, when we reach that intersection those that have received a pardon for their sins by standing under the doorposts of the blood of Christ, just as the Hebrews did in Egypt, will be “passed over” from that Judgment Day. That means that for those not under the redeeming blood of the Lamb of God (Christ), Judgment Day WILL Come.

So YES, there is a Non-Judgment Day coming for some, but not because you put a bumper sticker on your car, but because you put your faith in Christ to redeem you from (i.e. pay for) your sins and remove the charges against you that would cause you to stand before that final heavenly court.

If you are “In The World” and not in Christ, then Judgment Day IS INDEED COMING, but you don’t have to face it...and a bumper sticker won’t prevent that.

God Bless Your Day
