    Not me, I hope. It should be quite a jolt to be thrown to appear before a Great Anything.

    The Great White Throne judgement is only for the unsaved. The redeemed appear before the Judgement Seat of Christ for their works as a Christian to be judged. This is not to judge if we go to heaven or hell, but to judge if our works are wood, hay, and stubble that will be worthless, or if they are gold, silver, and precious stones that will endure and be rewarded. Our sins were judged and paid for on the cross.

    All will appear before the Great White Throne Judgment! Otherwise why would the Book of Life be opened along with other books?

    Revelation 20:11-13
    11. And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
    12. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
    13. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

    Chrsitians have their "judgenet" by the bhema Throne of jesus, as per paul, judged as to whether good works were of good quality or not, NONE at that judgement will go to hell, NONE at Great White One goes to heaven, its the sinners being judged for good works, for degrees of punishment...

    NO! ONLY sinners not been saved by the Grcae of God in Christ will appear there, as NONE will be saved, but judged by goodworks as to their degree of punishment from God....

    And why does the scripture say, "...if anyone's name was not found in the Book of Life..."?

    Greek there means that the question is being asked like rhetorically, expecting amegative answer...

    Could also be see as saying 'since"
