“Ugh, how will the Great White Throne Judgment go for him?”
One of my daughters met a former classmate this week. I think it was at Chik-fil-a. He, like my daughter, is still in high school, but is vocally happy to have left Curtis Baptist High School and I think is trekking through his junior year at North Augusta High School. My daughter volunteers her satisfaction at having continued at Curtis Baptist1. At the dinner this week where this subject came up my daughter shared something else from their interaction. It was his antagonism, flippancy even, to all things Jesus. It seems that this interaction between them was helpful to my daughter opening her eyes a bit further to the way others live and look at things. It also was helpful in our dinner-time discussion.
What troubles me is a consideration of him in situations like the Great White Throne judgment. Will his name be in the crucial book? Will his anti-God or maybe just anti-Jesus actions be the most evident? For a fellow like this former classmate I suspect their attitude toward my concern is, “don’t worry about it.” For one who personally looks to the future recognizing life as we know it as a temporary phenomenon, a phenomenon upon which forever is built out, though, it is hard to “not worry about it.”
