Will God Judge Us
There are times when we "give our best" to a task, but the outcome may not be what we expected. We may even be hurt. A good example would be parents and the children that they raised. Will God "judge" us on the basis of these outcomes?

If you caused your children to stumble, yes, He will judge you on the outcome. Fix it as soon as you can, and maybe His judgment will not be so severe.

Concerning God's judgment we can say-
1. God's judgment will be absolutely fair.
2. God's judgment of our wrongs and our sins has already taken place on the cross of Calvary. Jesus himself was judged in our place.
So now we come to the question will we be judged? Yes we will and our judgment has to do with the rewards will receive for what we have done for the Lord after our salvation. If made of grass and straw our work will burn up but we ourselves shall be saved. So our judgment is for rewards. And we faill to win rewards we will still be saved. So the answer is God will not judge you because of your failure. But he will reward you for success that success must concern his work.

GOD will judge everyone. The bible says we all will face judgement.

Katherine, God judges us by our motives and desires at the time of our decisions. We all make many decisions in life. It is what is behind our decisions.
When we bring a family up knowing about Christ we are doing our duty as parents. What the outcome will be is not our responsibility. Each person is on his own and responsible for himself.
I agree with Joseph answers and Pierr's and most others. God created us complete. It is our desires and motives that bring us down. From a child we desire to do wrong. Our fallen nature comes alive right after we sin for the first time. And all sin and come short of the glory of God. The reason Christ came, He was without sin, and he took our place so that we could be right with God.

"I just do not see why God would create us then judge us for the way he created us." I understand Katherine.
Which is why my original post to this blog was entered. The Father does understand, know this beloved, He does not deal with us after our sins, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. As the heaven is high above the earth, great is his mercy toward them that fear him. As far as the east is from the west, He has, though His atonement, removed our transgressions from us. Our Father loves His children deeply, He has the mercy to be compassionate, and extends His tender mercy towards His children, who honors, loves, respects and reveres HIm. For he knows our frame, he remembers that we are but dust. Ref. Psa 103:7-13

Josef, I agree. I just dont think therefore God can judge. If Jesus was the father, and the was in him, then God actually understood, which is an even better reason for him not to judge. Its a lot better reason then what I last said, which is he has no right because he does not understand. But he does. I just do not see why God would create us then judge us for the way he created us. It seems ungodly to me.

God will judge all. Believers at the "Bema Seat of Christ" or "The Judgment Seat of Christ"
and Unbelievers at "The Great White Throne of Judgment."
Believers will be judge, according to their works, and will determine what rewards they will get.
Unbelievers will be Judge, according also to their works, to detemine their punishment. It will be a fair judgement, they will not get more then they deserve.

"God has never actually lived, or been in complicated issues that humans have lived in.--Katherine on 6/20/09"
O but He Has Katherine, "God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself", as "Emmanuel, God with us" Jesus would ask you this question "Believest thou not, that I am in the Father, and the Father in me?" "Without controversy, great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh...that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things [pertaining] to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. For in that He himself hath suffered being tempted, He is able to succour them that are tempted."
2Cr 5:19>Mat 1:23>Jhn 14:10>1Ti 3:16>Hbr 2:17,18

No. You did your best. What more can God expect you to do? And judging is a little harsh of god...don't you think?...I may be damned for saying this...but I would think God has no right to judge for God has never actually lived, or been in complicated issues that humans have lived in.

This one thing you can be sure about.God IS GOING TO BE FAIR IN HIS JUDGMENT. You kind of leave me feeling that you did not really give it your best but you hope He will see that way.
Let me ay it again: whatever your final judgment will be, it will be just and the auditors will see it that way too.

Is one's best prayer, fasting, Bible reading, parenting, listening and obeying the Holy Spirit, etc? If so, I don't see how we would be judged for what someone else does.

UNDER THE WORD.means using Gods word to teach them and counsel them.tghe bible uses the words nurture,and animition,look them up.The result is the same,use Gods word.
---tom2 on 6/13/09|
oh the bible says fathers raise your children in the nurture and animition of the lord.
---tom2 on 6/13/09|
we are to raise our children using the word of GOD.
---tom2 on 6/13/09|
Parents must take their God-given responsibility to raise their children right so the children can thank God for birth/life. Since this world is not perfect, bad things will always happen, but if the child truly knows love and is righteous, no matter what the parent's mistakes/failures/iniquities, the child will "mourn" the absolute judgement of the parent by The Heavenly Father (the child's love will "cover" a MULTITUDE of the parent's "sins"/misgivings).
1 Peter 4:8
"since love covers a multitude of sins".
If the child is firmly inside The Body of Christ, just as Jesus is our advocate before The Father, the child will also be the parent's advocate before The Heavenly Father.

"Will God "judge" us on the basis of these outcomes?"
The Father has placed all judgment in the hands of His Son. Man "has one that will judge him: the Word that [He] has spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day:" And man will be judged for one thing only, whether or not he has rejected the prompting of His Spirit to receive, confess and acknowledge His Lordship, and His atoning sacrifice for him. Jhn 12:48.

\\We will be judged by God if we dont raise them under the word.\\
Where does the Bible use the phrase "under the word"?
---Cluny on 6/12/09|
Everything a believer does is tested by fire. (1 Corinthians 3) Believers however are "JUSTIFIED" in him that died for us.
---Pharisee on 6/12/09|
For your answer read Hebrews 11. Read about all the people who did their best - without the desired outcome in vv 36-38. Yet they are numbered among the great men of faith.
Once we have done all we can do, the results are not our responsibility. In the example you gave, the parents cannot be responsible for the choices their children make.
---Bruce5656 on 6/12/09|
we are to raise our children with the word,we are not responsible for their decisions outside of the word they are.We will be judged by God if we dont raise them under the word.jesus said if we lead one of these little ones astray it would be better to have a mill stone tied around our necks and be cast into the sea,than the judgement for such.
