    Here's some questions you might be asked by God on Judgement Day. If I were you, I'd really do some hard study so you can answer them well. Here goes.

    1. Why did you spend so much time on CF and ignore me?
    2. What good works did you do exactly? I don't see too many on this list.
    3. Why didn't you do many good works during your lifetime?
    4. I see very little evidence of you actually loving your neighbour. Why is that?
    5. I see very little evidence of you loving your enemy. Why is that?
    6. Why so many sins? Honestly. Come on.
    7. Give me one good reason why I shouldn't send you to Hell?
    8. What's your definition of being a good person?
    9. What's your definition of being a good Christian?
    10. Why did you ignore Mary?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    11. Why did you make lists assuming I would ask these questions on Judgement Day?

    Sorry, I just had to.

    I think perhaps our Lord might get more personal with the last one! Why did you ignore my mother?

    Also 1/ is a generic question: could easily have been why so much time wasted on golf/ fishing / rock climbing/ computer games ( insert favourite pastime)

    I spent time there praying for and with Your people, in fellowship and love (at least, I tried)...Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
    Far too few...Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
    "Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin, my mother conceived me"...Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
    "For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice"...Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
    "For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice"...Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
    For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice"...Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
    Because of Your great love and mercy at Calvary...Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
    "No one is good but One, that is God"...Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
    "No one is good but One, that is God"...Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner."
    I honor her, but tried to focus on You...Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

    Sorry shoetoyou, sounds like you are an incredibly decent soul. This was 90% in jest. Making fun of our obsessions with Judgement Day, But also an imaginative search too. What will Judgement Day really be like?

    If it were permitted, I would wish I could fool God as much as I seem to have fooled you. :tonguewink::tonguewink:
    My answers were serious, but I rarely am. Still an interesting post worth responding to..
    No clue, really...too busy just trying to get through day to day without messing up, and hoping to get closer to Jesus so He'll be beside me on that day, advocating for me to the Father. I expect it will be terrifying! The thought of facing pure Good, knowing who I am and what I have done, even being forgiven, is unbearable...

    I get it now. Sorry. You are "playing God". Good one. Excellent joke. So as God, what questions are you going to ask?

    Really harsh!

    I'm expecting God to say, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!'

    Oh, how blessed that would be! But, I think the best I can hope for is "Your sins are forgiven...your faith has saved you. Go in peace." (Luke 7:48-50) ... but it would be enough. I am content.

    I'm expecting something like this:
    "Paul, you wasted too much time trying to be funny and to steal the limelight from me. I was going to send you to Hell but just to show what a merciful God I am, I will let you go to Purgatory for about 300 years. OK? I'm being very kind. Count yourself lucky."

    If he's wearing a "Make Heaven Great Again" hat, it might be someone other than God. Trust but verify!

    You mean hoping - rather than expecting!
    Presumption is a form of pride!

    Why would an omniscient God play stupid and ask questions?

    Job 38 and 39 shows God does ask questions! rhetorical ones perhaps!

    Since I used "expect" rather than "presume", your concern is nullified. Don't stir up trouble where none is intended. Jesus says you should worry about the log in your own eye.
