First: This thread is NOT for discussing Kingdom Salvation or Millenial Exclusion. If you want to promote or discuss those heretical doctrines, start your own thread on them. Please do not contaminate this thread with your views. The goal of this thread is to discuss the Biblical concept of the accoutability of believers. I happen to believe there are a number of ways in which believers are and will be held accountable for their behavior. Here are some of the consequences - in this life - of bad behavior (Note my use of "may", since it is ultimately up to God whether or not we experience these consequences): 1. We may experience the direct consequences of our sin. For example, if we steal, we may get caught and (pay fine, go to jail, etc.). We get drunk, our body may suffer. And so on... 2. God may chasten us. For example, the Corinthians were taking the Lord's Supper without respecting or discerning the Lord's body. As a result, many were sick and some had fallen asleep. 3. Our Christian friends or church may discipline us. Obviously, this depends upon whether or not we're attending a good church. Okay, your turn. Can you add to this list as to our accountability in this life? What accountability, if any, is there afterward?
